If you operate a trail riding business, you should be well aware that not only is trail riding insurance is a necessity, but making sure that you have the appropriate level of insurance can mean the difference between success and failure of your business.
Reputable riding businesses are run by experienced individuals. But predicting the temperament of a horse on any given day is never a sure thing, even for the experts. While trail horses are chosen for their calm dispositions and stability under pressure, there are still risks to be wary of. Industry group Riders4helmets.com reports that the rate of serious injury per hour is estimated to be approximately the same for horseback riders as of that for motorcyclists.
Helmets can be lifesavers in both activities. While the risk obvious of physical injury for horseback riders starts from high on a horse, riders can be injured mounting a horse or even beforehand if pushed or kicked. A horse can weigh from 800 to 2,200 pounds. Old equipment and stable accidents also pose dangerous risks.
It’s been estimated that 7 million people ride horses in the U.S. each year. As the sport increases in popularity, related businesses are sure to grow along with it.
