The British Horse Society (BHS) are there to ensure that every horse and horse rider in the UK are safe whether it be riding on roads, bridleways or the open countryside.

THE BHS have an impressive track record when it comes to safety and promoting the safety of horse riders.  They improve safety for the 3.5 million frequent horse riders and 1 million horses in the UK as a result of lobbying government, collecting data, offering advice and offering education.

Did you know that in the 12 month period from April 2011 to March 2012, over 4,000 horse riders and carriage drivers went to hospital because of a horse riding accident?

How do you report a Horse Riding Accident?

There are a variety of different types of horse riding accidents.  To many just a few types, you could:

  • Be involved in an accident with a car
  • Fall from your horse whilst riding
  • Be thrown from a horse during a lesson

If you have an accident with a car simply swap details with the driver and get witness details to support your version of events.  If you are thrown from a horse during a lesson you should make sure that the accident is put in to the Stables’ Accident Book so that they have a detailed record.

No matter what the type of horse riding accident, you should then also report it on www.horseaccidents.org.uk which is the BHS’ Reporting of Equestrian Related Incidents website.

So far they have received nearly 3,000 reports of horse riding accidents but are always keen to hear about more so they can keep an accurate record.
