Horse Riding Accidents – Always Play Safe!

Horse Riding Accidents – What are the risks?

It has been said that horse riding is intrinsically dangerous and experts have commented that horse riding accidents are even more frequent than in motor cycling, hang-gliding, ski racing and football!

It therefore comes as a real surprise that some riders actually make a conscious decision not to wear a helmet – but why oh why do they choose to leave their helmet at home? ?

There are a number of excuses that are commonly given such as:

  • No need to worry if you are simply going out for a gentle ride – it’s only when competing that riders need to bother with a helmet.
  • I’m such such an experienced rider that I don’t need to worry about these things.
  • Helmets are not comfortable to wear and can be too hot and are certainly not a fashion statement!
  • It’s clearly necessary for children to have to wear helmets but for adults, who can assess the risks themselves, its just a choice they are free to make.

Horse Riding Accidents Statistics

Clearly horse riding accidents will never be avoided by simply wearing a helmet but it can be said that in many situations the injuries the horse rider suffers are much less serious as a result of wearing a helmet.

The wearing of a helmet is just one aspect of horse rider safety but the statistics show it is an extremely important one.

It’s a sad fact that around two thirds of horse riding accidents are caused by head injuries and this type of injury seems to be responsible for the majority of horse related hospital admissions.

The helmet is a vital piece of equipment that is specifically designed to protect the rider when suffering a blunt force  and they are manufactured in a way that  offers cushioning when there is any impact and the reality is that this can and does  save lives.
