#nationalequestriansafetyday on March 25th 2017 is a safety awareness day aimed at the equestrian community. Created by our charity, which is dedicated to helping those injured through riding, handling or working with horses, the day aims to highlight the importance of thinking, acting and being safe around horses as equestrians become more active as the season progresses.
The significance of the day chosen is as clocks go forward, more riders return to the saddle and the competition season starts. It is also significant to the charity as Mothering Sunday is also within the month, a date close to the charities heart. The mother of the rider after whom the charity is named and who lost his life in a riding accident was instrumental in setting up the charity in his name and memory to help other riders and their families.
