How risky is jumping horses?

Very: Horses are huge and strong. You should not do jumping unless you have serious experience and a well trained animal. Nonetheless, even the most experienced fall off occasionally and may get stepped on by the horse or even have the horse roll over on them. Be sure you have good insurance and always ride with a companion.
