Report your horse riding incidents & accidents

We are urging all riders and carriage drivers to report all incidents they are involved in, regardless of severity, to us.

Reporting your incidents helps us to better understand the rate of equine-related incidents across the UK. Our online reporting hub covers a range of incidents including road traffic incidents and near misses, dog related incidents, fireworks, cycling, and more. 

Anyone can report their incidents or near misses to us; you don’t have to be a BHS member. It is vital each and every incident is recorded in order to be added to our national statistics.

Why it is important to report your incidents

Reporting factual data really can make a difference to equine safety and it allows us to lobby and advise MP's, road safety partnerships, the police and other safety organisations.

We need the evidence to show there is an issue, but require the factual data to be reported; which really can make a difference to equine safety.

  • We lobby and advise MP's, road safety partnerships, the police and other safety organisations. The statistics are used in government debates on subjects such as road safety and fireworks, and high profile presentations. This database ensures we are a significant partner with all equine safety stakeholders.
  • We use our statistics to offer support to BHS members in local safety campaigns.
  • Allows us to identify hotspots and recurring trends.
  • We use the data to hold equine safety events around the UK to give greater awareness of the serious issues equestrians face.
