The Equine Safety Initiative

The Equine Safety Initiative aims to highlight the importance of being adequately insured around horses. By doing so, it aims to protect riders, stable staff, farriers and all forms of riding establishments in the event of a horse-related accident. The Initiative has been developed in conjunction with equestrian governing bodies including AIRE, SJI and ISSA, along with numerous riding establishments across Ireland. We’d love you to get involved too, so please click here to find out more.
