Horseback Riding Injuries
There are many outdoor activities people of all ages choose to participate in across the country. One of these activities is horseback riding. Like any sport or physical activity, there are risks and dangers with horseback riding or equestrian lessons. No matter your skill level, every rider is at risk of an injury, especially if riding instructors or other parties act negligently.
Riding instructors are required to provide proper training and safe equipment to riders, and if they do not, you may be at risk of a serious injury. If you or someone you know has suffered an injury in a horseback riding accident, contact the Cedar Rapids personal injury lawyers of the Law Offices of Leehey Olson Law, P.C., at (319) 294-4424 today.

- Wear proper safety gear at all times including a helmet, and riding boots
- Check all equipment before riding and never use any damaged saddles or other items
- Do not ride without proper training or supervision
- Ride at your own skill level
