Website dedicated to the documenting of equine accidents. It also offers advice for how to prevent accidents.

Methodology:

Visitors input data to unpublished database.

Key Findings:

  • A variety of triggers can lead to a horse accident.

  • Numerous accidents can be avoided by following the comprehensive advice given on this website.

Themes: Horse, accident, emergency, incidents.

Comments:

This site provides valuable advice and links to all equestrians, and the data collected by the site is allowing the BHS to create a picture of the patterns and trends of horse accidents in the UK. However, no statistics can be seen from this site (increase or decrease in road accidents for example), and due to the map size on the page, clusters of accidents cannot be easily recognised by a member of the public visiting the site.
