Top Tips to Keep Stables and Horses Secure

In recent years thefts from stables has increased. North Wales stabling experts Cheval Liberte offer some tips to keep your property and animals safe.

Denbighshire (I-Newswire) February 18, 2014 - When looking to purchase wooden stables, internal stables or even an American Barn there are a number of issues to consider, security being an important issue to bear in mind.

Equestrian yards and stable blocks can be targeted by thieves who are looking to make off with valuable riding equipment.

Police advice horse enthusiasts to ensure their equipment is marked and recorded with their postcode. This will ensure that when recovered it can be taken back to its rightful owner.

Police claim it is common to get calls relating to the theft of bridles, bits and other items of tack.

Horse riding equipment including saddles and bridles are expensive to be replaced and opportunist thieves are taking advantage, say police officers.

Staff at north Wales based Cheval Liberte take security of stables very seriously and they advise the following methods should be followed to safeguard your stable from being broken into.

1. Have adequate locks on gates surrounding your yard.

2. Mark all tack with your postcode.

3. Think about installing CCTV cameras.

4. Photograph your horses and equipment so if they are stolen you have something to show police.

5. Install security lighting around your stables.

6. If possible, wheel clamp horseboxes.

7. Horses could be targeted too - remember to microchip your animals. However, never padlock a stable when your horse is inside.

8. Join a local police Horse Watch scheme if one operates in your area.

Obviously there are many things other than security to consider when buying stables or American Barns including stable frontages and partitions, stable doors and windows, shutters and other accessories. Whatever you decide rest assured that Cheval Liberte can discuss all your equine needs.
