Abstract

High injury potential in rodeo is well recognized but the injury data for pediatric and adolescent rodeo athletes remain sparse. A systematic review of the literature published between 1990 and 2017 was conducted to assess the incidence and determinants of rodeo-related injuries in this population and to suggest injury prevention measures. Three of the 10 included studies reported event frequency and exposure data while the other seven pertained to particular injuries and/or rodeo events. Although each study documented cases of severe injuries, the limited epidemiological data indicated the majority of pediatric and adolescent athletes sustained minor injuries, such as sprains, strains, and contusions. Most injuries resulted from the impact of a fall or animal contact with the head being the most reported injury site. Owing to an unpredictable nature of this sport, injury prevention is challenging but there is evidence that helmets reduce the incidence and severity of head injuries.
