has such an important place in today's horse world and we want people
to understand how they can recognise a well run yard," said
the Society's chief executive, Kay Driver. "Approval under
the scheme means the proprietor can display our coveted green plaque,
which must be seen as an indication of excellence."
Tim Stockdale added: "We have to keep up standards at livery
yards and this is a very effective way to do it. I'm very happy
seminars will explain the scheme's demands on livery yards and also
publicise how owners can get a list of approved establishments.
British Equine Veterinary Association (BEVA) asked the Society to
look at livery yards after veterinary surgeons expressed some concerns
over welfare. "But we want people to understand that as well
as monitoring standards, it will make it easier for owners to find
yards they can trust," said BEVA spokes person Mrs Lesley Barwise-Munro.
