Research into equestrians – Can you help?
First-of-its-kind research looking at sleep in international event riders.
Study being done on behalf of Hartpury University and the FEI.
Just a short 5-minute questionnaire. You need to have competed at at least one FEI event in 2023 and be over the age of 18.
Other sports have been studying sleep in their athletes for years and it’s made massive amounts of progress for them. So why aren’t we doing it? We have not only ourselves to care for but our amazing horses, making longer days for us and often finding it hard to shut off at the end.
Hopefully going forward the results from sleep studies will be able to help rider welfare, which we often overlook.
Please do help if you can!
