-- When an accident at a horse farm occurs, from a simple casualty to a major tragedy, besides the farm owner's disappointment/
heartbreak and the injured person's and/or horse's suffering, there is always a financial expense/loss involved. Preventable accidents usually happen because horse farm owners/managers, experienced or not, fall into the habit of overlooking some safety flaws in their facilities, not realizing that accidents to people and/or horses are waiting to happen. And, when least expected… Boom! An accident happens. Thus, that learning experience may be very costly.
Most accidents at horse farms can be prevented if corrections to safety flaws are made in time. Here perfectly applies the saying, "Prevention is the best protection
". Factors that may lead to accidents at horse farms include: facilities' poor design and/or inappropriate materials for the horse breed/equestrian discipline, incorrect use of the facilities and/or insufficient maintenance, not enough knowledge about horse behavior and/or human-horse interaction, lack of safety awareness, external agents (weather, people, animals), among others. Even having the most luxurious and expensive horse facilities doesn't always guarantee that they are well-designed, maintained, and/or managed with high safety standards for people and horses.
Because during his life-career in the horse industry safety has been one of his priorities, Mr. Diego Bravo, who has resided in Ocala (Horse Capital of the World) for 16 years, created the HORSE FARM FACILITIES SAFETY EVALUATION SYSTEM. This service, offered by SAFER HORSE FARMS LLC, is a great tool for horse farm owners to keep their farms safer for their families, employees, and visitors, and for their beloved horses. Having an SHF inspector conduct a professional safety evaluation of a horse farm is a gainful investment for both the owner's peace of mind and preventing expensive accidents. Additionally, when marketing horse farms, real estate agents also benefit from this service because they will be able to market safer properties to their clients. Now serving Ocala and Wellington, FL.
