Safety at the Show
The Show Committee asks that all exhibitors treat safety at the Show as a priority and share the responsibility in ensuring that all safety regulations are obeyed. We want you to have a successful and enjoyable Show but also a safe and accident free occasion.
- On entering the grounds make yourself aware of the location of emergency services
- Please observe signs especially those relating to caution in all livestock areas.
- All animals including foals must be haltered and led by a competent handler.
- Please do not exhibit animals that are unsuitable e.g. hard to control or acting in a dangerous manner.
- It is advisable for exhibitors to have their own Public Liability Insurance to cover any eventuality.
- Animals should not be tied to trailers/horse boxes, gates etc.
- All animals must be confined to their designated area and kept under strict control.
- Dogs must be kept on a lead and under the control of the handler at all times.
- Children must be accompanied by an adult.
- If you become aware of any activity that poses a threat to the public, please alert one of the many Show Stewards.
It is imperative that all in attendance co-operate with our Safety Officers and Stewards and caution and care must be exercised at all times throughout the day.
Important notice for all exhibitors – from the Irish Show Association
The Irish Show Association would advise all Animal Owners who have their Animals Insured to have the Insurance Cover extended to cover them while showing Animals at Shows, we understand that it costs very little or nothing all depending on who you have insurance cover with.
The reason for us giving you this advice is that if your animal lashed out and injured someone or damaged someone’s property and it is established that your animal was out of control at the time, you may be held responsible or partly responsible for any injury or damage caused, you may end up paying all, or part of any settlement reached.
