Printables For Organizing Your Horse Life
 By Winniefield Park   •   29th Jul 2016   •   3,402 views   •   0 comments
When was the last time Snowflake had her hooves trimmed? When did Blue last have that bout of colic? And who is the new boarderís veterinarian? Good records make remembering the details of our horse activities much easier. And an easy-to-fill out form or contract is the simplest way to get those details organized. I keep all my horseís records, including invoices and receipts, clipped into a single binder. I actually have a binder for each family member, including the dog, and they all sit in one spot so they are easy to find. A binder or file folder might help you remember those small but important details about your horse. Here are just a few of the forms and contracts you can download and print out to keep your horse life organized.

Printables For Organizing Your Horse Life

Health
A well stocked first-aid kit is an essential in every stable, and itís handy to have one when youíre traveling too. Print out Horse & Riderís ĎKitted Outí list to take with you when youíre shopping for items.

This print-out from KER can help you determine whether a horse is too thin, too fat, or in perfect condition.

And keep track of your horseís health with a form like Farnamís health records. There are sheets for parasite control, hoof care, vaccinations, dental records and general health.

Legal Forms
Iím always surprised at the amount of Ďhorse businessí that goes on without contracts and documentation, but Iím not really surprised by the amount of drama and ill will that occurs when relationships between barn owners, sellers, buyers, boarders etc... go awry. A well thought out boarding, leasing, breeding, selling agreement helps everyone know where they stand, whatís expected and whatís not allowed. The Horse Legal Forms on Equine.com are a good place to start when putting these types of forms together. A lease form can also be found at Tidyforms and Printable Contract.

Stall Cards
Stall cards are useful because even in small stables, keeping track of how each horse must be cared for can be tricky. The ownerís name, contact information, veterinarian contacts and care instructions are important information to anyone looking after a horse and essential in an emergency. Sample stall cards can be found at Flyonovereq and Blue Horizon Farm.

Waivers
If youíre offering riding lessons or any other situation where Ďthe publicí will be ride, handle or otherwise come in contact horses a Ďhold blamelessí contract is a good idea. Iíve been told however, that these types of contracts are not bulletproof. When faced with someone, especially a child, who will need lifelong care after a debilitating horse related accident a judge is likely to rule in favor of the injured regardless of whether a contract has been signed. Iíve never put this to the test thankfully, but it might be worth contacting a lawyer when it comes to this type of waiver. Printable Contracts is one that might be a good starting point.

Show Clothes
You might not think of yourself when putting together your horse records, but itís handy to have a list of sizes and measurements when you go shopping for riding clothes. The College Horseman provides a pdf to fill in all the blanks. Youíll need a cloth measuring tape for the numbers part, and a friend to help you measure is easier than doing it yourself.
