UK Horse Riding

Around 3 million people ride horses in the UK so it isn’t surprising that equestrian accident injuries are so frequent.  Horse riders know that horse riding has the potential to be a highly dangerous activity.  The BHS (British Horse Society) suggests that there are almost 3000 accidents every year involving horses with 50% of those horse riding accidents occurring on UK roads.

Horse riding accidents can result in extremely serious, life-changing injuries such as traumatic brain injuries, spinal injuries and unfortunately, fatal horse riding accidents are an annual occurrence.  Some NHS Ambulance Services say that they have to airlift more horse riding accident victims to hospitals than motorbike accident victims.


100% of our Horse Riding Accident Claims are made on a No Win No Fee basis.  If your Horse Riding Accident claim is unsuccessful it will not cost you anything.
