Ü Safety for Horses and Riders in Eventing - Following
a five-year study this report is directed at the policy-makers in equestrian sport. Until this project began, the Equestrian
Federation of Australia (EFA) collected
no information on the sport of eventing. There was no central database of competitions,
starters, results, falls or injuries. The findings provide a useful source of information when policy-makers look
at future rule changes, as they will provide comprehensive data about risks of horse and rider falls, as well as correlations
between jump types and the risk of falls.
