People have enjoyed riding horses for hundreds and hundreds of years. It is an extremely popular and healthy activity for people from all walks of life. It can be challenging yet very rewarding. You only need to ask someone that has had the pleasure to raise and train their own horse. For these people and many others it is more than a sport. It is a way of life.

However horse riding is an extreme sport. It has this label because there are many dangers associated within the sport. Anybody who has ever ridden will know that. In many aspects of the sport quite sizeable obstacles are jumped at speeds that would be breaking the speed limit on many UK roads. Obviously this means that accidents are a given. It's often very easy to be injured from the fall alone, let alone if your horse falls on top of you or you have the misfortune of being trodden on.
