The Equestrian Security Concept
& Farming communities are seeing an ever increasing rise in
theft & damage to property, the members are also aware of
their Insurance cover rising in response, The problems arise in
Prevention, Trace-ability, Identification, & Recovery, of
Tack, Horseboxes, Isolated Farm Buildings / Stables, and Farm
On the Tack Front :-
I.R.D.Ltd of Chichester West Sussex, in the U.K. are working in
Association with the Master Saddle Makers of the Walsall Equestrian
Society, to place a Radio Frequency tag in their Saddles whilst
at the manufacturing stage, this allows a security system that
identifies each stage of ownership from manufacturer, retailer,
customer, and if required Insurance Company. This tag would be
very difficult to remove without the skills of a Master Saddler,
should a thief try to dispose of this tag, he would destroy the
saddle rendering it useless to re-sale.
When purchased the owner registers their tack on I R D Ltd database
In time all Saddles will be tagged at source in this, or a similar
method, with the availability to log your tack on a permanent
Database, making life hard for the average thief to steal your
tack, and to re-sale it on.
& Identification :-
are looking to all personnel within equestrian circles, to help
reduce the vast amount of Crime & Theft happening to the existing
tack & equipment in use by them, by tagging their Saddles,
Alarming their Stables & Buildings, with a I R D Ltd, Silent
Alarm System, ( Spyminder ) that is operated by using Mobile Phones
without landlines, it will warn against Entry, Fire & many
other items, It calls up to 10 Numbers simultaneously, giving
a fair chance of quick detection.
It would also help by fitting a Locating System to any horse-boxes
that do not already carry a tracking system, I R d ltd have a
Locator System that has a facility for identifying when a parked
Horsebox is moved out of any given field or location by warning
you by phone, this allows you the time to warn the authorities
well before the box moves too far from your yard or event, It
is operated by using your own PC or Laptop, It does not involve
a third party cost.
It can be listed on an I.R.D.ltd Database should you not own a
Pc or Laptop.
Horse watch and the Police need positive proof of ownership before
they can attempt to prosecute against theft, we all need to supply
this evidence of proof, to give the authorities a fair chance
to help us retain our goods.
Horsewatch are trying, I.R.D.ltd are trying, The Saddle Makers
of Walsall are trying, and without the People who use the Tack
trying, we will not combat Crime in our Industry.
