It will advise those entering the horse training facility that it is a multiple hazard area and they must comply with all safety regulations.  FastTrack Insurance will send trainers a FREE entry sign – all a trainer is required to do is request a no obligation quote for an insurance cover. A trainer simply needs to scan or take a snap of their current insurance policy and email it to info@fasttrackinsurance.co.nz or call 0800 722 369 to receive a quote.
