Stable Injuries

There seems to be a country-wide obsession or love of all things equestrian. This is evidenced by the more than 30 million Americans who engage in some level of horseback riding on an annual basis. While this is great news for the equestrian industry, it also means that hospitals are asked to handle and cure more than 2,300 equestrian-related injuries. These injuries are the statistics collected only on those under the age of 25 who are injured each year. Anyone over the age of 25 is not included in this injury count.

One of the reasons for the large number of serious injuries relating to horses each year is the size of the horse. Horses are large (they can weigh 1,500 pounds sometimes and stand at about 10 feet), fast (some breeds can get up to 30 miles per hour), and unpredictable. Of the horse characteristics that make them dangerous, the last one is the greatest cause of concern.

When people are injured by horses, the injuries are most frequently to the extremities. This can be an injury to the arm, wrist, or shoulder or it can affect the lower extremities like the leg, ankle, and foot. The location of the injury, in most cases, depends on how the person is injured.
