With recent concerns over attacks on horses, it’s no surprise that people have become increasingly interested in equestrian security. As horse owners ourselves, we understand just how important it is to know your horses are healthy and safe from harm.
We’ve been asked to fit security measures to protect tack and stable equipment quite a lot over the years, but recently people have specifically asked us to install CCTV systems, so they can see their horse and know they’re OK when they’re not with them.
CCTV is the perfect security measure for giving you peace of mind where horses are concerned. As long as you have an internet connection, you can access the footage from your smartphone, tablet or computer, meaning you could be the other side of the world and still be able to see how your horse is fairing.
Another benefit of CCTV is being able to play back footage. Unfortunately, horses get injured, and as an owner, you want to be able to heal them as quickly as possible. Finding out how the injury occurred by playing back the CCTV footage is the only sure-fire way of knowing how they acquired the injury, unless you were with your horse when it happened.
CCTV can also be useful to ensure that anyone caring for your horse is undertaking the required tasks and looking after your animal as you would expect. If you log in and find your horse is poorly or injured, or the perimeter has been tampered with, you can inform those looking after your horse and they, in turn, can react much faster to the situation.
Of course, the well-being and security of your animals is your main concern, but it’s also fun to watch and find out what they do when you’re not around! Karen loves doing this with her horse, Alfie. She can often be found taking a sneaky peek at him on the live feed from her phone. Even though Alfie seems to spend most of his time sleeping, we like being able to look in on him to make sure he’s OK.
Whether your horse is in your back garden or at the local livery yard, you can visually check in on them whenever you like with one of our CCTV systems. We have a range of different systems available and with our free, no obligation security audit, we’ll be able to provide the perfect package for your needs.
The same applies for farm security. CCTV can be a fantastic tool for keeping an eye on your farmyard animals and machinery, and it can be integrated with your other security measures, so everything works hand in hand.

We look forward to helping you improve your equestrian security to make sure all our horses are safe, healthy and secure.
