Help to keep Severnvale safe
- Severnvale Equestrian Centre (SVEC), and all those who are connected with it, does all that is reasonably practicable to make sure that there is a healthy and safe environment for all persons at the Centre. Not withstanding this, all persons using, or visiting the Centre, do so at their own risk, and must remain aware at all times of the potential risk from live animals, which sometime behave unpredictably. They must also remain alert to the risk from vehicles and plant, such as cars, lorries and tractors, which move in and around the Centre.
- Straw, hay, animal bedding and the timber buildings present a significant fire hazard. Therefore all persons at the Centre must do all that they can to prevent a fire from starting and know the evacuation procedures that must be followed.
- For the safety of everyone, all Clients and visitors are required to follow reasonable instructions that may be given to them by the Centre’s Instructors, and all those who are connected with it. It is particular important that young people (less than 12 years of age) are supervised by an adult, as they are less likely to be aware of the risks around them.
- It is the express condition of Severnvale Equestrian Centre that those riding there voluntarily accept the risks of injury or damage that is implicit in riding a horse. Where the rider is less than 18 years of age, his or her parents, or other adult accompanying them, must accept this condition on their behalf.
- A properly fitting hard hat, of an approved type, and footwear with heels (spurs, if worn, must point downwards) must be worn at all times when mounted at the Centre.
