The British Horse Society (BHS) seminar at Your Horse Live, 'So you want to be a livery yard owner', will address current
'hot topics' of insurance and fire risk assessment as well as promoting the society's Approved yard scheme.
day tales of litigation and hikes in insurance premiums, running an equestrian establishment can become a nightmare, forcing
some yards out of business. As established yards close down, new yards are opening up, particularly where farmers are encouraged
to diversify, but whether you already run a yard, are thinking of setting one up, or keep a few horses at home, this seminar
is for you.
Covering details of the benefits of joining the BHS' Approval scheme plus presentations by South Essex
Insurance Brokers and Shropshire Fire & Rescue Service, the seminar will be able to advise all those who keep horses,
whether for business or pleasure. Risk assessment is an essential requirement to lessen the chance of avoidable accidents
and the disaster of fire, helping to keep insurance premiums to an affordable level as well as potentially saving lives.
in the seminar will be the new BHS book, Guidelines for Fire Safety in Equine and Agricultural Premises, to be launched at
Your Horse Live, which takes place at Stoneleigh Park near Kenilworth in Warwickshire on 6-7 November. Written by Harry Paviour,
a retired serving brigade officer now the Fire Risk Surveyor at the Fire Service College, the book covers everything the horse
owner and yard proprietor needs to know about fire safety, and will be available from the BHS stand at the show or from the
BHS Bookshop (tel: 08701 201918) or visit: www.bhs.org.uk
