Look before you leap: risk calculation obstacles in eventing

What data is most useful in calculating risk of injury?

Calculating the risk of injury in equestrian sports (and eventing in particular) is difficult due to differences in definitions of risk and in risk calculation, methodologic problems and incomplete data registration.

Eventing is considered the most risky of horse-riding events; especially the cross-country phase. Although many data are available, the mechanism or complexity of the injury is not always registered.  When hospital data are used (less severe) injuries are underreported.
