Compensation for pony fall

In an accident claim ruling at the Appeal Court, a judge has said that a couple who ran an equestrian school must pay personal injury compensation to a girl who suffered serious head injuries in a fall from one of their ponies.

The incident which the accident claim relates to occurred in 2001, when the now 17-year-old claimant was thrown from a nine-year-old pony.

Even though the judge ruled that the owners of the equestrian school were not negligent for the accident, they must still pay compensation for the accident claim because, under the terms of the 1971 Animals Act, they are still considered 'strictly liable'.
