Georgina recently secured judgment for a riding school student following a 3-day multi-track trial with equine experts in attendance. The Claimant was a nervous, novice rider, who fell from a horse whilst cantering up a hard track, out of sight from the escort. She had previously attended 3 lessons and 1 hack at the school, and had cantered once in the arena only. She lost control of the horse, having released the horse’s reins, upon the instructor’s advice to hold on to the saddle whilst cantering. The Defendant was found liable in negligence.
