Hurricane Safety Features
Many seasonal equestrians do not realize that Hurricane season is from June 1st to November 30th. Our facility offers the ONLY quarantine barn in the State of Florida specifically designed to today’s code requirements.
Our CBS constructed barn provides hurricane shutters for the windows and hurricane rated roll-up doors on all of the entrances. We also have custom designed hurricane curtains made out of Kevlar to protect all of the walkways and aisles. These curtains allow you full access to the entire barn, while protecting your horse from the weather. Equine Quarantine at Ossian Ventures is equipped with a commercial Kohler generator capable of powering the entire facility until the power is restored. Remember, hurricane season doesn’t end until November 30th, which is a prime time of year for the import of horses into Florida.
