Is working around horses as dangerous as we think it is?

Common wisdom says that working around horses is dangerous. But is it really? And how dangerous is it in comparison to, oh, say working in Nascar? Or working in the construction industry? The Maryland Horse Council is conducting a survey on injuries in equine businesses. The scope of the survey includes, but is not limited to, owners of training, boarding, and lesson, stables, shipping companies, stall mucking companies, vet hospitals, carriage operators, pony ride operators, hunt clubs, as well as to individual service professionals and providers – anyone who would hire employees or have interns or student workers, including but not limited to, veterinarians, farriers, and dentists. It will be a blind survey, and you can participate anonymously through the internet. It will only take a few minutes.
