Were You Injured By A Horse?

Horse riding is a popular pastime in the Ocala area both competitively and recreationally. From trail rides to competitive riding schools, horses are a major part of the good life our area has to offer.

As with any recreational pastime, when proper safety precautions are not taken, people are put at risk of serious injuries. A certain level of caution and care is necessary when interacting with horses because of their size and power. This is especially the case when children are interacting with horses.

The owners of equine businesses such as trail rides and riding schools have certain responsibilities. Under Florida law, these businesses must post warnings about the risks people face when riding. Some of the ways equine business owners can fail to protect their customers include:

  • Failing to post legally required warnings
  • Failing to provide safety equipment such as helmets
  • Improperly training staff

Horse and equine accidents can cause very serious injuries such as:

  • Traumatic brain injury (TBI)
  • Spinal cord injuries (paraplegia, quadriplegia, partial paralysis)
  • Bone fractures
