Re: [RC] Eventing deaths - Jackie Causgrove

Yes, I understand but what are the overall statistics????
and considering that there are HOW many horse trails going on in this country alone????
So, yes, it stands to reason, statistically, since there are far more events and more rider/horses participating, then you are going to see more of this.
However, this needs to be compared to the whole; otherwise, it's could very well be a skewed result.

I have actively participated in both eventing and endurance. At
competitions that I personally attended more horses died at events.
Ironically most of them "dropped dead" on course and the one endurance
ride that I was present when a horse died it was from running through a
solid fence. That said I have seen many many more horses die at
steeplechase races and some at the flat track.
I have known more riders that died eventing and the injured rider in
Florida is one of our locals. Libby
