Horseback riding instructors can often accommodate riders of every interest ranging from children and ponies to adult trail riding trails. Whatever the case, the upcoming Fall season is a great time to take advantage of the cooler weather and changing leaves to fully promote this fun filled activity.
Business owners in the horseback riding arena must prepare for every risk-related eventuality. Live animals post unique situations and proper horseback riding business insurance is vital. Wikipedia explains some of the inherent risks, noting that when mounted, a rider’s head can be 13 feet from the ground, and horses can travel at up to 40 mph.
Each year an estimated 30 million people ride horses in the U.S., resulting in one emergency room visit per 600 riders. Falling from the horse is the most common, followed by being kicked, trampled, and bitten. Injuries scale down in percentage from arm fractures or dislocation, to head injury, to leg fracture or dislocation, and chest injury. Injuries can range from very minor injuries to fatality.
