Horse Riding Claims

Solicitors specialising in Horse Riding Accident Compensation

Horse riding is not without its dangers and sadly many people are injured whilst riding. If you have suffered a horse riding accident which was caused by somebody's negligence, you could be entitled to compensation.

Common Horse Accident Claims include:

  • Injuries whilst a spectator or when taking part in a horse event – the organisers of any equestrian event cannot simply avoid liability with a notice stating “we accept no responsibility for any injuries received whilst attending or competing at our event”.
  • Horse riding accidents on the road – for both horse riders, and motorists when a horse was not properly controlled
  • Injuries incurred whilst at work with horses – your employer must provide a safe working environment for you.
  • Riding schools injuries – any horse must be suitable for its rider and a trained instructor should accompany inexperienced riders during lessons
  • Injuries, to riders or their horses, caused by faulty equipment

Horse Accident Claim Limitation Periods

There is, in general, a limitation period for bringing a horse accident claim of 3 years from the date of the injury – the time within which any court proceedings must be issued (which can be extended if you have only recently discovered the effects of your injury). However, we strongly recommend that you take initial specialist legal advice about any horse riding injury as soon as possible.
