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. The LandSafe Rider Fall Safety System is a training program designed to teach the best practices of fall prevention and response.
