The evaluation of risks in the equestrian compartment, both in trot and canter racecourses than in simple equestrian schools, contains in itself a notable complexity that doesn't make the assignment simple neither for the employer than for the advisor that doesn't own a specific formation in equestrian subject. Procedures are poorly standardized and conditioned very much by the variability of the implicated subjects, both in animal and human terms. The great difference among the environments and the conditions in which involved people operate, as well as the subjective differences of single horses also in terms of reactions to the specific context, makes it difficult to generalize the applications in safety terms, being however on the other hand forced to compile all-round valid guidelines. The innovations introduced by the D.Lgs. 81/08 focus the attention on some characteristic elements of working compartments, such as the precariousness of the job, the appeal to poorly specialized and foreigner manpower, the difficulty to introduce in consolidated practices new management procedures that would produce an effective reduction of risk and stress, the difficulty of communication with the always greater number of foreign workers.
