The Equiery is supporting a University of Maryland School of Public Health study on horse-related injuries and safety practices among people who interact with horses in Maryland and Virginia.

The goal of this survey is to characterize the injuries that are most commonly occurring in this population and to identify ways in which safety practices can be improved to reduce the occurrence of injury and improve the outcome after injury.

We are asking all Equiery readers to participate in this survey, regardless of whether or not you have suffered a horse-related injury.

Everyone who completes the survey will be able to enter into a drawing to win a $50 gift certificate to Dover Saddlery! The survey should take about 5 minutes to complete. Your responses are very important to us and the results of the survey will be shared in a future issue of The Equiery. You must be at least 18 years of age in order to participate.
