Horse rider wins battle for compensation after six years

A horse rider who sustained severe personal injuries following a collision with a motorcycle has won a six-year battle for road traffic accident compensation.

The woman and her husband had been riding in the New Forest, Hampshire, in October 2009 when the road traffic accident took place.

As they approached a Honda motorcycle which was also carrying a pillion passenger, the biker lost control of the vehicle and collided into the horse the woman had been riding. As a result of the crash the horse bolted causing the rider to be thrown from her saddle and onto the floor.

The motorcyclist denied that his bike had hit the horse and instead claims that the horse had bolted as he had approached causing the rider to fall.

However, a judge at the High Court, Winchester District Registry, decided that the evidence indicated that there had been a collision and he ruled that the accident had been caused by the biker travelling at high speed.

The result of the hearing means the claimant can now recover full XX1XX for her injuries.
