A Critical Review of Horse-Related Risk: A Research Agenda for Safer Mounts, Riders and Equestrian Cultures

Kirrilly Thompson, Paul McGreevy and Phil McManus Animals 2015, 5, 561-575; doi:10.3390/ani5030372

Risk taking behavior and culture in riders. The study identifies how the ways in which risk is constructed in each dimension affects the applicability of four basic risk management options of avoidance, transference, mitigation and acceptance.

Helmet Use Amongst Equestrians: Harnessing Social and Attitudinal Factors Revealed in Online Forums

Laura Haigh and Kirrilly Thompson Animals 2015, 5, 576-591; doi:10.3390/ani5030373

Epidemiological research details a high rate of horse-related injury, despite technical countermeasures being widely available and largely affordable. Whilst barriers to engaging in preventative behavior such as helmet-use have been identified, less attention has been given to enabling factors. This article explores these attitudes.

Helmets in Sport: Fact and Fallacy

Matthew R. Gammons, MD Competitive Sports vol 12, 6, Nov/Dec 2013

Helmets offer protection from TBI, but less evidence that they are protective with MTBI or the effect or repetitive head trauma.

Lasting Pituitary Hormone Deficiency after Traumatic Brain Injury

Odile Kozlowski Moreau, Edwige Yollin, Emilie Merlen, Walter Daveluy, and Marc Rousseaux1
JOURNAL OF NEUROTRAUMA 29:81–89 (January 1, 2012)

Pituitary deficiencies have been reported after traumatic brain injury (TBI) and may contribute to lasting cognitive disorders in this context. TBI patients with
cognitive sequelae must undergo pituitary screening because growth hormone, corticotropin, and thyrotropin deficits are particularly common and can adversely affect ADL and reduce QoL. Activities of daily living; cognitive disorders; pituitary deficiency; sequelae; traumatic brain injury
