A Critical Review of Horse-Related Risk: A Research Agenda for Safer Mounts, Riders and Equestrian Cultures
The acceptance and avoidance of horse-related risk is generally high, and the potential benefit in developing mitigation strategies directed at improving the predictability of horses and improving riders’ competence in the physical skills that make them more resilient to injury and falls is highlighted.
An Investigation of Racing Performance and Whip Use by Jockeys in Thoroughbred Races
Horses, on average, achieved highest speeds in the 600 to 400 m section when there was no whip use, and the increased whip use was most frequent in the final two 200 m sections when horses were fatigued.
