Horse Riding Accidents

Horse riding is taken to be a great relaxing sport with a large number of kids starting this highly interesting sport at an age of 4 or 5 years. There are a huge array of times when the horse riding lovers do not actually realise the power and great weight of even a small young horse. In a large number of countries, about millions of people prefer doing the exciting sport of horse riding each day including several thousands of those who ultimately get injured due to these animal related accidents and need the medical treatments.

One of the most common horse hiring accidents is of the horse throwing you from its back, which can prove to be a highly serious condition. Various other ways through which the horse riders can suffer from severe injuries include the animal bucking its rider in some thorny bushes or rough surface or being simply thrown off on the ground and being dragged along with it for quite a long distance. These common horse riding accidents can not only be faced while you are riding or enjoying a relaxed experience on a horse, they can be suffered while someone else is grooming, feeding or handling the animal. As some of the horses can be domesticated with the passing of time, no horse is completely safe to ride on.

Some other animal related accidents that can even prove to be fatal include:

  • Ankle, foot and knee injuries
  • Dislocations and broken bones
  • Concussion and head injuries
  • Spinal cord injuries
  • Elbow, shoulder and wrist injuries
