Equestrian Safety Tips

Thousands of people are hospitalized every year in the United States from horseback riding injuries. These injuries may be minor, like sprains, but they can also be as serious as a head, neck, or back injury. To stay safe while riding a horse, you can follow these tips:

  • Always wear a certified riding helmet, proper clothing, and closed-toe riding boots
  • Always ride at your level, and do not attempt jumps or stunts unless you are being properly supervised or have been trained
  • Always check riding equipment to make sure it is properly secured and in good shape
  • If you fall, roll to the side of the horse if possible to avoid getting trampled
  • Take proper riding or training classes before riding alone

You cannot always predict when someone will act negligently and endanger you, but you can reduce your risk of injury by being safe around horses.
