Rider Safety Is A Serious Issue

Equestrian sports attract an estimated 7 million people annually in the United States.

Equestrian rider safety continues to be a serious concern.  A common challenge that all riders face is the risk of injuries resulting from falls.  Every ride can result in a fall, but certain scenarios introduce more risk than others.

FEI Research* shows that the risk of fall with injury ranges from 1 in every 250 starters for low impact falls to 1 in every 520 starters for serious injuries. The type of fall also correlates to the risk of injury or death. The risk of having a serious injury is once every 55 falls.  A rotational fall, however, increases the risk to once every 5 falls. The LandSafe Rider Fall Safety System is a training program designed to teach the best practices of fall prevention and response.

Safety is a common denominator across all aspects of life, hence knowledge should always be shared ...

Landsafe training gives us tools to handle situations that may be out of our control, to feel secure in our body’s response with muscle memory built. We can then enjoy the many gifts that horses bring us — in any riding discipline.
