Businesses own rules and practices
The code is compiled for the safety of customers, staff and horses. Take your time to familiarize yourself with the code, don´t hesitate to contact the staff if any questions should arise.
I understand that riding at any standard has inherent risk and that all horses may react unpredictably on occasions.
I may fall off a horse or suffer an impact and I could be injured. I accept that risk.
I understand that instructions are given for my safety and that of others and I agree to follow all instructions given to me by staff and instructors at Junction Farm to the best of my abilities.
I understand that should I feel unsafe or at risk of injuring myself or others, I should seek assistance and/ or dismount when safe to do so.
I understand that wearing a correctly fitted equestrian safety helmet and body protector may reduce the severity of an injury should an accident happen and agree that I will always wear an EA approved helmet whilst riding horses at Junction Farm.
I understand it is my choice whether or not I wear a body protector unless specifically instructed to do so by Junction Farm staff.
I understand that the riding school will make decisions based on information I give them and agree to always be honest and volunteer information about:
• my abilities and riding experience
• any previous riding accidents
• any medical condition(s) which may affect my ability to ride
I understand that children are at particular risk around horses and agree that I will keep any children that I am responsible for, under close supervision when they are not being instructed by the Junction Farm staff.
I understand that Junction Farm may refuse my request to ride or of horse for safety and operational reasons.
Please note, Staff are their to to help you. Information you get from the staff is essential for everybodys safety.
2. Calm and composed behaviour is essential around horses. Horses are flight animals that can spook sudden movements and loud noises.
3. It is not allowed to enter the boxes without permission. Entering the paddocks and pastures is also prohibited without permission. Dogs should be on the leash while visiting the stables, it is important for dogs own safety.
4. Feeding is planned carefully for each horse individually. Feeding extra could risk horses health or change horses behaviour, that is why nothing should be fed to horses without staffs permission. Many stables welcome carrots and dried bread, ask the staff for details.
5. Every horse has it´s own, fitted tack. Store the tack in right places so they are not used on a wrong horse. If there is a certain place for the tack, for example a rack or a holder, place the bridle and saddle on them while tacking the horse. Expensive equipment lying on the floor can get broken or cause danger if tangled at the feet of horses or human. Ask the staff for additional information if needed. Remember that a horse may not be left unattented in a box with the tack on. Do not fasten the horse from the mouthpiece. You can place a halter on top of the bridle and after that fasten the horse according to instructions.
6. The staff know the horses, so while grooming the horses it is worth to go along with instructions given from the staff. Typically at the stables you also find information about each individual horse from the box doors, grooming kits and/or from the noticeboard. If any horse should need special treatments, you should always have a permission from the horses owner or from a person, who is authorized by the owner. While walking the horses in hand, wear appropriate gloves. Do not wrap the rope or reins around yor hand. Shoes worn at the stable should be sturdy.
7. While handling the horses, be aware of the surroundings and try to anticipate and avoid situations that may cause danger to yourself, the horse or the others. Ask questions without hesitation.
