Horse Riding Is Leading Cause of Sport-Related Traumatic Brain Injuries, Study Finds



Why oh why would anyone risk it when you can ride Epona all-day every day risk free?

Shut down the tracks. Put down the horses.
Give it up. We get it. You like football and no person could ever succeed in life without experiencing the physical man love of slamming bodies together over and over. And if that kills you, so be it. You were a better person for it.

This is, after all, a football board. But I like how John Harbaugh says it better.

The question is asked over and over: Why would anyone want to play football? And why would anyone let their kids play?

Here’s my answer: I believe there’s practically no other place where a young man is held to a higher standard.

Football is hard. It’s tough. It demands discipline. It teaches obedience. It builds character.

Football is a metaphor for life.

This game asks a young man to push himself further than he ever thought he could go. It literally challenges his physical courage. It shows him what it means to sacrifice. It teaches him the importance of doing his job well. We learn to put others first, to be part of something bigger than ourselves. And we learn to lift our teammates – and ourselves – up together.

These are rare lessons nowadays.

Ah yes, the very common and widely embraced sport of HORSE RIDING.



Hold on gents, I gotta go get my high school son of the horse riding team.

Dude you are hilarious.

What do you think an NFL football coach is going to say on the official Baltimore Ravens website?

"Ya know, kids. I don't think you should be playing this sport. It's bad for you. Please come watch us this weekend though. Tickets go on sale at midnight."

You're showing your Nintendo bias again.

I'd venture to say that far more adults routinely ride horses in the US than play competitive football.

To be fair to glean what the sport of football does for a person, I'd rather listen to the opinion of a person who's known the sport at every level vs the opinion of a person who's only known it by the Madden player he is on his TV.

https://www.cdc.gov/mmwr/preview/mmwrhtml/mm6119a4.htm

How you can be on board with such a reckless sporting activity is anyone's guess.
It's irrelevant in your book that the rate of drowning is only 2/100,000. It's irrelevant to you that drowning is the leading cause in the 1-4 demographic with only 438 deaths, meaning it's fairly obvious that it's the leading cause in this age group mostly because the age group rarely dies of other causes.

That could only be explained by your your stunning innumeracy, the same innumeracy that leads you to cite 58% as a number supposedly supporting your point.

58% is the number of drownings attributable to swimming pools (ie the sport)

3,300 dead people every year. All because of a sport. Football can't touch that.

Again... is it worth it?

Speaking of rates per 100,000 how about...

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Motorcycle_safety

Quote:
According to the U.S. National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), in 2006, 13.10 cars out of 100,000 ended up in fatal crashes. The rate for motorcycles is 72.34 per 100,000 registered motorcycles.[2] Motorcycles also have a higher fatality rate per unit of distance travelled when compared with automobiles.
Obviously motorcycle riding has to be sentenced to the past in in this brave new rubber world we're building.

Stop your whining already. People are just trying to point out that football and concussions are having a major impact on peoples lives. And you just want to throw out crap like it's dangerous to walk down the street. Trying to reason ANYTHING with you is like trying to pull the tooth out of a lion.

As far as a HS sport, it will be nowhere near football in terms of participation.

Considering the risk we're talking about for football is not fatalities, this is just facially stupid.

And, even though you keep trying to pretend this doesn't matter, if we are comparing a 2/100,000 of death by drowning to even a 1/100 chance of serious health problems from CTE, then football is a greater concern.

Have THEY decided to diagnose CTE or even do an autopsy on anyone else from ANY OTHER SPORT that are prone to head injuries?

No?

Huh....

I guess the concussions in those other sports really don't count.

Is this player broke by chance?

All I want to know is how many people in the general public have CTE later in life like these NFL players? Something tells me it would be higher than expected.

From the 2012 Lehman study, the mortality rate of NFL players due to neurodegenerative disease is 3-4x the general population.

The answer to your question is that no people without a history of head trauma have CTE.
