Who Mark Davies Injured Riders Trust helps


Sometimes the fence wins - this is when injuries can happen



The Fund supports people who have suffered from an accident around horses and where other relief is inadequate or unobtainable and they have nowhere else to turn. We help those from all walks of life and irrespective of whether an accident has happened on or around horses and at home or at a riding event.  Our video featuring Belinda, one of our beneficiaries, and our Patron Zara Phillips shows just how we help.

Anyone who is suffering, or has suffered from a horse related accident could qualify for assistance to improve or maintain their quality of life. We also acknowledge that often such accidents not only impact on the victim, but also on their families’ and friends’ lives so, in these circumstances, our support can often be diverted to those who become ‘carers’.

We’re here to help…

If  you have been involved in any horse related accident – or know someone who has – and for whatever reason you (or they) are finding it hard to cope, then please do contact us.  Our wide ranging advice and moral, practical or financial support has proved itself to be a lifeline for injured horse riders and handlers across Britain.
