Reasons a Stables may be at fault for your Horse Riding Accident

For years we have dealt with horse riding accident claims where riders have suffered a horse riding accident because of various factors, some of which are listed below:

  1. Failing to take into account that the rider was a total beginner when choosing an instructor and horse which caused a horse riding accident
  2. Permitting an inexperienced and/or unqualified instructor to take a lesson causing a horse accident
  3. Permitting a lesson to go ahead without the instructor attaching a lunge line or lead rope to the horse so it could be controlled leading to a horse riding accident
  4. Failing to properly or suitably supervise the lesson which can easily cause a horse accident
  5. Failing to take proper care for the Claimant’s safety during the lesson
  6. Instructing a rider to ride a horse which was not a riding school pony/horse owned by the stables which can also lead to a horse riding accident
  7. Instructing a rider to ride a horse which was unsuitable given the lack of riding skill and experience which is well known to cause a horse accident
  8. Failing to take heed of verbal complaints that a horse was frisky and skittish
  9. Instructing a rider to canter when it was unsafe to do so given their lack of skill, experience and competency
  10. Failing to teach a rider how to trot properly and safely before instructing them to canter
  11. Failing to train the rider regarding controlling, slowing or stopping a horse in canter which is also a cause of horse riding accidents
  12. Allowing a lesson to take place in a small paddock with a wooden fence surrounding it and then having the horse go round the outside of the paddock close to the fence. Due to these factors an accident nature would likely result in severe damage through the rider coming into contact with the solid wooden fence
