In the example which they report, the competitor went on to win a competition the next day, but the outcome could have been very different. I have blogged on this subject in the past.

I feel that at the very least, anyone suffering a kick in the head from their horse as this lady did should seek medical attention before being allowed to continue in the competition. Horse riding is of course a dangerous sport and we are all aware of the risks. However, I don't think we do not need to add to those risks un-necessarily.
