Truth be told, horse riding remains a favourite pastime and sport among many people around the globe. In fact, horse riding is one of those few activities that can double up as a hobby for the whole family as well as a competitive sport. Nonetheless, this doesn’t make it any less dangerous than it really is. Experienced riders can confess to you that regardless of how careful you are, some common injuries are inevitable and can easily be said to be a ‘natural’ consequence of occasional horse riding.
It is easy to underestimate just how dangerous horse riding is, especially if the rider or the horse is a novice racer. A healthy animal can effortlessly gallop to a top speed of about 40 miles an hour. That is faster than most automobiles on our roads today. Even a gifted a horse rider can sustain serious or fatal injuries if they fell off the animal at such a speed. And this is often the number one cause of horse riding injuries today. It is also not surprising there has been a steady increase in the number of fatal horse riding related injuries that have been reported in the past 5 years.
Fortunately, the good news is that you can make a horse injury compensation claim if the accident was caused by someone else’s negligence. But this can be confusing because sometimes accidents will occur purely inadvertently and not necessarily due to somebody else’s negligence.
But before that, here are some of the scenarios that can warrant you to file a fatal horse accident claims or compensation.
If the fatal accident is as a direct result of defective equipment that is provided by the horse riding company, then you should file for accident compensation. The equipment in question here includes the saddle, girth, bridle, riding hat or reins. Speaking of which, if you are injured by fall off the horse simply because the girth had not been fastened properly, then you should not hesitate to file a claim.
In some cases, fatal accidents can occur following the collision of a rider on a horseback and a speeding motor vehicle. Now depending on the situation under which the accident with the motorised vehicle occurred, you could file a compensation claim from the insurance company under which the vehicle is registered.
The Animal’s Temperament
Although horses are not known to be moody animals, a few of them have an unsuitable temperament that make them dangerous to horse riders. It is legally acceptable to file for a compensation to file for compensation if the accident was as a result of the animal’s temperament and past-recorded behaviour.
Poor Leadership, Training or Management of the Animal
Some accidents occur due to the poor instruction and leadership of the animal by the responsible instructor. For instance, ideally, the instructor should take a position in the front or rear frontier of a group of riders and issue directions to the group. Failure to do so will often end up in some type of lack of coherent coordination that can contribute to the likelihood of an accident occurring. Additionally, too many riders who fail to plan well, often results in accidental injuries, especially where traffic is involved.
