to download form The Western Australian Horse Council was developed 30 years ago to provide a state wide voice for the horse community The Council can best be described as community based and is run by volunteers who work in a number of key generic areas in the horse industry The Council is very committed to co ordinating relief funds for all those in the horse community affected by natural disasters and have been extremely active in providing support to the horse communities in Toodyay Victoria Carnarvon and Queensland In the recent bushfires around the Upper Swan Bullsbrook and Kelmscott areas we published a data base of people offering free TEMPORARY services and support on the Council s website www wahorsecouncil com au The Council has been offered a number of Equestrian grounds in the Metropolitan and Country areas as Emergency Evacuation Centres These centres would be available to the horse community requiring alternative TEMPORARY accommodation in the event of floods bushfires etc People would be responsible for providing their own equipment People would need to contact a designated person regarding using a centre and also need to be aware that these venues may not be available at certain times The Council is asking you and your organisation to pass on this information so that in the event of a disaster persons are aware of how to access this assistance We would also encourage people to consider offering their spare yards paddocks to people in need so we can increase the areas covered in WA Apart from private property suitable venues include equestrian centres show grounds racecourses sale yards farmland etc When you have lost everything anything is acceptable Diane Bennit Chair Western Australian Horse Council BACK TO TOP OF PAGE ARE

rather than the horses committee member Tracy Talbot coordinated the production of a pamphlet on minimising the fire risk for horse owners and developing a Bushfire Action Plan The pamphlets draft format has been presented to Fire and Emergency Services Authority FESA and once completed will be uploaded to the web along with an Action Plan Checklist that can be downloaded The aim is to have this pamphlet circulated to an many horse owners as possible in high risk areas by working with the Fire and Emergency Services Authority FESA State Emergency services SES and local shires Texan Tips to Protect Horses from Wildfire August 21 2009 by Texas AgriLife Extension Service Article 14762 Horse owners and ranchers can take precautions to reduce the risk and spread of wildfire and protect their animals from injury or death by fire said Texas AgriLife agents The most important thing to remember is to have a fire plan in place said Rick Machen Texas AgriLife Extension Service livestock specialist in Uvalde You ll have a limited time to react when a wildfire hits so you ll need to be prepared and practiced for it The plan should include how to access and transport livestock that might be in danger he said Make sure you have keys to padlocks and can get easy access to every gate on the perimeter fence Machen said If there s a wildfire farmers and horse owners need to know in advance what their priorities are he noted Sometimes firefighters will ask which they should save first a structure livestock machinery or feed he said If you have time to evacuate livestock proceed with caution he said as some animals might refuse to leave and others might run back into a burning barn or building Close gates that give livestock access to dangerous or soon to be dangerous areas Machen said When evacuating the animals be sure to keep them from going into areas where they might become trapped or have a limited chance of escape Livestock are frequently injured or killed by running into fences barriers and other obstructions while trying to flee he added Having the right equipment and experienced handlers to move livestock is important but if time is of the essence it might be necessary to release the animals and recapture them later All farm and ranch family members and workers should be on the lookout for potential fire hazards and know how to respond in case of a fire added Bruce Lesikar AgriLife Extension agricultural engineer Lesikar said some basic safety precautions should include installing and maintaining smoke detectors in barns and buildings placing fire extinguishers in barns vehicles and tractors and posting emergency numbers in a central location near a telephone To help prevent or feed a fire store fuels pesticides and other chemicals away from heat sources and combustible materials he said If there s a wildfire these should be removed from the premises He added that trash hay lumber empty feed sacks and other flammable materials should be kept away from barns and buildings Firebreaks or fireguards are another useful tool in helping prevent the spread of wildfire noted Wayne Hanselka an AgriLife Extension program leader for rangeland ecology management based in Corpus Christi As their names indicate these are designed to keep fire in or out of a pasture Hanselka said Cleared firebreaks must extend to bare ground or mineral soil with no line of continuous dead fuel that allows the fire to creep across the fire line He added there are a variety of firebreaks and method for creating them and they should be constructed to meet

    twelve kilometer track which has now been allotted depending on yet another survey The Leeuwin Horseriders Group are therefore requiring public support to get back the original plan for the track to be used as a multi purpose track Most parts of the corridor are between 60 and 100 meters in width We have contacted our local MP Barry House for support and as he stated he cannot see why the firebreak could not be used for a bridal path This would mean that cyclists and walkers would have their own track We obviously do not need a special surface as cyclists and walkers do Most of the rail tracks in Victoria are mutli purpose and that works exceptionally well If anyone has any suggestions in our plight or would like to email the Augusta Margaret River Shire dnicholson amrshire wa

June 2012 Horse property managers are recognising more and more the value of good environmental management They are facing increasing scrutiny of their environmental management performance from regulatory government agencies from external stakeholders and from neighbours and industry peers All would like to see horses kept in a sustainable manner with minimal adverse impact on the environment The WA Horse Industry Council and Perth Region NRM have developed an information hub containing best practices for horse property management along with links to hundreds of technical and locally relevant resources to support property planning and implementation In addition to best practices for horse property management there are sections on pasture establishment and management soil management weed and pest management legal requirements contacts seasonal calendars events and more Check it out here http sustainableagricultureperth targeton com or Google the words Horse management perth LICENSE OR LEAVE TOWN OF KWINANA WARNS HORSE PROPERTY OWNERS September 09 The ongoing struggle by Town of Kwinana horse property owners over the introduction of a set of fees for the right to keep horses not any other livestock has not been resolved An introduction fee Residents on both rural and special rural properties have received blunt letters advising that fees were due and unless paid all horses would be directed to be removed from the property Failure to register an equine Premises each year constitutes an offence under the Local Law and is subject to penalties of us to 1000 with daily penalties of 100 per day Despite a letter of justification in which the Council points out that they have many other licences that attract fees they have failed to clarify why any licence was necessary in the first place when it is not deemed necessary by other shires If Kwinana residents have to be protected from the health hazard of horses then the Council needs to fully explain exactly what health problems they create The Governement spends many thousands each year encouraging people to exercise and take 30 to create a healthier lifestyle and reduce the state s huge health costs but the Town of Kwinana s actions and anti horse attitude are actively discouraging horse ownership in their shire and the wonderful health and lifestyle benefits that are gained by being involved with horses TOWN OF KWINANA HORSE PROPERTY REGISTRATION FEES Ongoing June 09 A public meeting was held on Wednesday the 28th July by Town of Kwinana horse property owners The meeting discussed Town Council discriminative and anti horse actions toward horses on rural and special rural properties within the municipality Serious issues were seen as existing with the fairness appropriateness suitability application and Town of Kwinana s management of its Health Keeping of Animals and Equine Premises Local Laws which were introduced in 1997 for purposes and under auspices of the Western Australia Health Act 1911 The sombre mood of the meeting was clearly expressed and horse property owners said they were no longer prepared to accept the constant discrimination and aggravation The council also received a resounding vote of no confidence from the attendees The Town Council s motives were seriously questioned as their actions might include an undisclosed strategy to force horse owners out of the Town precincts The Kwinana Equine Action Group a working group of the Western Australian Horse Council has consistently questioned the legality discriminatory practices moral issues and unjustifiable fees for keeping horses This is particularly so considering that Council originally offered that it had only received five complaints relating to horses since World War Two Furthermore it had not identified whether or not the complaints had been substantiated in any way as might justify the excessive impositions it had undertaken Most recent fees introduced by the Town of Kwinana include a registration application fee of 94 to register an approved local property for the keeping of horses The application must be accompanied by a detailed plan of the property showing the wet and dry areas topography areas to be used or not for horses all buildings stables yards and fencing together with the number of horses the applicant wishes to maintain on their property The Town of Kwinana as a matter of local policy requires inspection of all properties by a Health Inspector regardless of need or not which is an area of concern for horse property owners as despite numerous requests the Town of Kwinana has not supplied information as to exactly what criteria or standard is expected to be met or what an inspection actually was for This has been exacerbated by the Town openly stating that the entry onto properties was also as a means for Council to discover any number of infringements of Council Laws as may
