Is Horse Riding dangerous or risky?

MG Legal, Personal Injury Solicitors Lancaster, know that the concept of consenting to an injury seems somewhat odd. Think about it though; Tom Schwarz may not have consented to Fury winning in the fight last weekend, but by climbing through those ropes he’ll have known that he is more than likely to get a punch (or two minutes and fifty-four seconds of punching, to be exact). Surely then there is an argument that knowledge of potential injury means consenting to a personal injury.
So, in relation to other sports, what is the position? Well, it is widely accepted that Horse Riding can be dangerous, and that by participating in the sport, horse riders are accepting a certain risk and therefore giving their consent. But, is there a limit to this consent, and what happens if a personal injury happens because of a negligent act?
