Horse riding is something many people enjoy, but when things go wrong the consequences can be serious and even life-changing. If you’ve had a horse riding accident that wasn’t your fault, our solicitors could help you claim compensation. Can I Claim Compensation For A Horse Riding Accident?
If your accident was caused by someone else’s negligence, you could claim compensation. Our expert lawyers have helped people make horse riding accident claims after being injured:
In road traffic accidents
While working with horses, either on a voluntary or paid basis
At competitions, whether taking part or watching.
Although there are always risks when dealing with horses, you have a right to be kept safe by those responsible for your wellbeing. This might be school instructors, stable owners, or other road users.
We’ll look at what could have been done to prevent your accident, and help you make a claim against those responsible.
How Can I Claim Horse Riding Accident Compensation?
You should contact us as soon as possible after your accident. We offer a free initial consultation to discuss what happened to you and whether or not we think you have a case. If you do start a claim we’ll discuss different ways to pay like
No Win No Fee agreements.
We’ll gather information and contact those responsible for your accident to see if they accept responsibility. If they do, we’ll try and secure interim compensation payments before your claim settles. This can help pay for things like immediate medical treatment, travel costs, and loss of income if you can’t work.
We aim to make the claims process as simple as possible, supporting you every step of the way.
How Long Do I Have To Make A Horse Riding Compensation Claim?
You’ll normally have three years to make a claim from the date of your accident. However, there are some exceptions to this rule:
Claims on behalf of children – these can be made any time before your child is 18. Once they’re 18 they can make their own claim until they are 21
Mental capacity – there are no time limits to make a claim on behalf of someone who doesn’t have the mental capacity to claim themselves.
If you or a loved one has suffered from a horse riding accident it’s best to contact us as soon as possible.
How Much Compensation Can I Claim For A Horse Riding Injury?

How serious your injury is
Current and future loss of earnings
Medical and travel expenses you've had to pay
Your care and support needs – now and in future.
We’ll make sure your compensation is enough to help you pay for any medical care you need, rehabilitation and any other expenses you’ve had to pay because of your injury.
