BHS Seminar at "Your Horse Live"

Insurance and fire risk assessment are the 'Hot Topics' for British Horse Society seminar

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.

With every 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.

Featuring 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 <http://www.bhs.org.uk> (Price 29.99 plus p&p).

'So you want to be a livery yard owner' is open to all horse owners and yard proprietors, existing and potential, and will take place in the Bailey's Horse Feeds Learning Centre at Your Horse Live at 1.15 p.m. on both days of the show.
