If you have an accident while horse riding and it was not your fault you may therefore be entitled to financial compensation. Contact us at Manners Pimblett, and we will be able to assess if you have a claim for compensation.

What are the most common types of injury caused by a horse riding accident?

The injury suffered by riders in accidents ranges from cuts and bruises to broken bones, a broken spine, head injuries, and brain damage. Victims of a horse riding accident may suffer from their injuries for a long time, maybe even their whole lives. The type of job they do, or even their ability to work, may have to be re-assessed. We at Manners Pimblett understand that personal injury claims are about more than receiving financial compensation. The financial reward can enable people to move forward with lives that have been put on hold, because of someone else’s negligence and lack of care. If you contact us now we will be able to assess your claim for compensation.

Why can I claim for compensation for a horse riding accident?

Horse riding school owners are under a legal duty, or duty of care, to ensure that their riders are kept safe. They should be fully aware of the dangers of horse riding, and should provide adequate safety measures to ensure each rider, from beginner to experienced, is kept free from harm. Examples of this are:

  • Providing properly fitting equipment;
  • Ensuring the surfaces are safe to ride on;
  • Providing horses with suitable temperaments;
  • Providing instructors that are in control and experienced at leadership.

If you have suffered an injury because you believe the above standards were not adhered to, or for any other reason, then contact us at Manners Pimblett. We offer a free, no obligation assessment as to whether you have a claim for financial compensation.
