Are you sure it is safe for me to travel?

21 June 2022

Tuesday 21 June 2022 | 6.30 pm - 8 pm | Robinsons Equi Teach

Are you sure it is safe for me to travel? Do you know what safety checks should be carried out on your towing vehicle, trailer or horse box before you load your horse and set off on your journey?

Join Des Payne from our BHS Safety Team and David Eason who is a qualified driving instructor and experienced B+E trainer operating from Jacks Driving School as they will show us on an actual horse trailer and 3.5 ton horse box what checks should be completed including:

  • Body of vehicle
  • Floor & ramp
  • Hitch/jockey wheel
  • Tyres
  • Towing weights, as well as calculating the combined weight of horse,equipment etc.
  • Brakes/breakaway cable
  • Electric & lights

They will also discuss the following:

  • What documentation you require for you and your horse ready for your journey
  • Correct insurance as well as road side assistance/breakdown cover
  • What's included in the trailer training course and why it is important to consider still taking the training even thought this is no longer a legal requirement.
  • And best of all, David will share some handy tips to help perfect those reversing skills.

The evening will be information and interaction and will take place outside in the centre car park, so please come suitably dressed for the evening.

This event is free and is open to everyone!
