Rider Safety Is A Serious Issue
Equestrian sports attract an estimated 7 million people annually in the United States.
Equestrian rider safety continues to be a serious concern. A common challenge that all riders face is the risk of injuries resulting from falls. Every ride can result in a fall, but certain scenarios introduce more risk than others. ‑
FEI Research* shows that the risk of fall with injury ranges from 1 in every 250 starters for low impact falls to 1 in every 520 starters for serious injuries. The type of fall also correlates to the risk of injury or death.‑ The risk of having a serious injury is once every 55 falls.‑ A rotational fall, however, increases the risk to once every 5 falls.
