With ponies, etc, they are probably not insured
Not in any experience I know of and mine is mostly pony
Vets fees for ponies are too high for that
All club events or sponsored rides etc etc etc require insurance
Basic insurance comes with BHS membership which goes with most even
Most basic livery [ like us ] require basic insurance.
AS to the topic of the post around here so many places are dual
function - second one being tourism that its astonishing how far a
coat of paint goes and having the scrap pile out of sight goes !!!
There are often comments about how well everyone must be doing cos
the places look so well !!!!
Swans come to mind
I noticed a fair while ago in the lakes that a lot of places, the
tourism actually paid for the upkeep so I can see where you are
To have any chance with visitors -- roundingup ducks, teas, or even just
walks the outward appearance has to be "clean"
White paint on the walls or tidied pointing, rubbish cleared from immediate
view and another coat of paint on rotting windows gives enough of an
impression that its a safe place to visit.
Whether it pays or not is another matter entirely !!!!!
Also one steading might be kept 'pretty' for the paying
guests, while the work is moved to another.
The area I walked through doesn't really do tourism, which might be
why things have gone the way they have.
Few don't have public around in some way now. Whether its caravan /boat
storage in winter barns - even 3 -4 brings in some pennies, workshop space
for a local aspiring business, B&B, house let out, summat.
There are a few stalwarts who live off the wife working in Tesco's and
puckle around in their mire but then they have always done so. Even if they
were getting £500 a month they would do the same!
