Horse riding accidents

by Hanni Frankland

The British Horse Society has published figures stating that there are around 3,000 accidents on the road each year involving horses. Some of these accidents cause very serious injuries, and can even lead to fatalities.

Horse accidents – government advice

As the heat wave continues across Britain, an increased number of horse riders will be expected to take to the roads – the weather conditions are perfect for hacking. In turn, however, such weather provides an opportunity for other road users to get out and explore the countryside.

This means a higher volume of vehicles on small and windy country roads. Horse riding is statistically one of the most dangerous sports in the world, but we believe that any injury caused by driver negligence should not add to theses statistics.

Government guidelines for avoiding horse riding accidents include:

  • Riding single file
  • Riders should wear reflective clothing
  • Drivers should look out for horse riders signals
  • Drivers should reduce speed and allow extra space when passing a horse

Most accidents are caused by vehicles travelling too fast on small country roads. This can result in the driver failing to see the horse until a collision becomes unavoidable. These accidents not only cause injury and distress to the horse, but can cause severe physical and psychological injuries for the rider.

Horse riding accidents – compensation with Hampson Hughes Solicitors

In any accident involving horses, we must establish that the cause of the accident was driver negligence. The horse rider must gather as much evidence and information as possible. This includes noting the circumstances of the accident, and obtaining the details of all parties involved.

If you have been injured in a horse riding accident that wasn’t your fault, we can help. Hampson Hughes Solicitors is dedicated to going the extra mile for anyone who has been involved in such a distressing accident – we will ensure that you receive maximum compensation
