force of horse

Postby nancyo » Sun Jan 06, 2008 7:26 pm

i was trampled by a horse in the abdomen and am curious of the psi. the horse was approx 1000 lbs and in propulsion when he contacted my abdomen (i was on the ground at pt of impact). the hoof was about 3 1/2" across. there was serious internal damage. maybe it's the sick side of me that wants to find out a number to put on the feel of the foot going into my abdomen, maybe i'm just curious. any help would be great. :lol:

I doubt the pressure was uniform. However, the area of the hoof, assuming it is roughly circular, is about 10 square inches. P = F/A, so about 100 psi if all his weight was on one hoof. Half that, assuming two hooves on the ground (in motion) at a time might be a better assumption.
