Horse Watch

Horse Watch logo

We work closely with the equine community through its members and volunteers to help keep them informed of any horse or rural related incidents. This process is supported by the Horse Watch scheme.

Rural crime which includes offences against the equine community is a continuous problem. You can help Avon and Somerset Horsewatch to help you and your community by informing your regional/local co-ordinator of anything suspicious or by getting involved yourself.

The documents below help to give information and advice on a whole range of security measures covering horses, tack, trailers, horseboxes and stables. To get more information on horses go to the Horses page.

Get involved

The success of the scheme relies on the dedication of its members. Their commitment to their horses provides a basis on which to build a range of measures which can help to reduce the risk of becoming a victim of crime.

If you're interested in becoming a member and would like more information on this scheme please get in touch by emailing
