Horses: The Danger

Did you know that you are 20 times more likely to have an accident on a horse than on a motorbike?

On average, two people per month are left paralysed from a horse fall and many others are left permanently disabled through severe head injuries.  And there are just as many dangers to be faced whilst handling horses from the ground too.

That’s why it is so important for horse-lovers to stick together.

The Mark Davies Injured Riders Fund was founded to help those who become injured by horses whether riding or working with horses on the ground.  It is the only charity in the UK which helps all injured riders from leisure riders to competition riders, across all disciplines and at any level.

Your support means that we can make a difference to people who unfortunately become injured by horses.  Find out how to support us and about some of the people we have helped on our website.  You can also learn about who Mark Davies was.

Thank you for your support!
