Background:  Equestrian activities are associated with a high rate of injury. Attempts to reduce the incidence and severity of injury require accurate characterization of risk factors and pattern of injury. The present study was performed to analyse the injuries seen at an Australian centre where a large number of equestrian injuries present. 
Paediatric horse‐related trauma
TLDR
This retrospective cohort study reported on the epidemiology of horse‐related injuries for patients presenting to the only tertiary paediatric trauma hospital in Queensland and the use of helmets and adult supervision.

TLDR
The largest number of equestrian injuries occur in white females in the 2nd, 4th, and 5th decades of life and serious injuries are due to falling or being bucked off a horse and most commonly occur at home or at a recreational/sporting facility.
Blunt injuries related to equestrian sports: results from an international prospective trauma database analysis
TLDR
Young female riders are at risk from falling, horse-kicks, and crush-injuries, and must specifically be targeted by future prevention initiatives.
Equestrian injuries.
TLDR
While there is little knowledge of injury demographics or the efficacy of prevention countermeasures in this field, it is likely that injuries will continue to occur and the prospect of injury prevention is limited.
Beware of the force of the horse: mechanisms and severity of equestrian-related injuries
TLDR
This study demonstrates that these studies in selected groups might have overestimated the severity of ERIs in the general population, and horseback riding is a risky activity.

A rare case of multiple mandibular fractures and severe facial laceration is presented. The cause was a horse hoof kick to an unmounted equestrian. The pertinent literature is reviewed and the

Pediatric equestrian injuries.
TLDR
Using data from four sources, horse-related injuries are summarized for persons younger than 25 years of age and the pediatrician's role should be in counseling parents with children who ride and in offering recommendations for safety to governing boards of youth horse activities.
