has been created to efficiently oppose the growing number of saddle thefts.
In the past years an uncountable number of saddles have been stolen, with a stunning increase.
The reasons for this tendency are: thieves do not encounter difficulties in reusing/reselling stolen saddles; consumers are excessively inclined to buy saddles of doubtful origin; the traditional codification systems implemented by the producers do not always allow to easily and safely identify a stolen saddle and attribute it to its legitimate owner, because till now saddles couldn’t have an unambiguous unalterable serial number and a worldwide register for saddles didn’t exist.
SicurSell® is an anti-theft device for horse saddles based on electronic and documentary identification by means of which the saddle, - a non-registered movable object and thus subject to the legal rule of “possession = ownership”-, becomes a registered movable object, attributed to a specific owner.
This is possible thanks to the synergy of these three elements:
A small visible device in stainless steel is implemented in the cantle, by means of a micro hole, using a special technique which makes it impossible to remove it without evidently damaging the saddle, while a so-called “NFC tag” (Near Field Communication - evolution of the RFID technology) is inserted inside the saddle where it remains hidden for the eye, but it can be revealed by a smartphone. These measures create a double univocal code, that identifies it in such a quick and simple way. NFC tags are very small chips on which you can permanently store a considerable amount of information that can be read by an NFC equipped smartphone, simply by holding it close to the tag.
All features of the saddle (external SicurSell® number, internal tag number, brand, serial number, colour, model, size, particular features) and the owner’s personal data are collected in the installation form, which gets a certified date and then gets registered in the SicurSell® WWSR database, together with photos of the saddle, the owner’s ID and, if present, the insurance policy. This allows to trace the saddle and property transfers in a simple, fast, and safe way and it also has the advantage that it guarantees, at any moment, the origin of a saddle at the time it is sold or bought.
The saddle owner will be provided with access codes to log-in to a private client area on the website, or using the free App, where one may check all information and download the documents that refer to the saddle and its owner, like the installation form with the certified data, pictures of the saddle, the SicurSell® number, the NFC Tag Number, the expiry date of the insurance policy, etc. With the App one can also send an alarm message to report a theft, which makes geolocation of the saddle possible. This cutting-edge technology instantly proves ownership of the saddle and it’s essential in case the theft of a saddle has to be reported to the police, while it provides an unambiguous description and documentary proof of ownership and for identification.
SicurSell® has proved to be an extremely efficient anti-theft device for saddles. This allowed us to negotiate a specific anti-theft policy at convenient prices and conditions with UnipolSai Insurance Company, for saddles equipped with the SicurSell® System in Italy. We’re in the process of extending coverage to other European countries.
The policy also covers thefts taken place outside the tack room such as from trunks and lockers, vans and/or cars, on the condition however that was burglary involved (padlocks and/or locks broken).
EXTREMELY LOW RATES
The annual rate amounts to 2,5 %, i.e. € 25,00 for each € 1.000,00 of value (this means that the premium rate for a saddle having a value of € 2.000,00 will amount to € 50,00 per year, for a saddle of € 3.000,00 to € 75,00, and so on).
The policy covers the saddle, not the tack room, and therefore no preventive expertise of the areas is required. The evaluation of used saddles will be made by SecurSell® experts. For new saddles or saddles bought during the last 12 months, you can indicate the effective purchase price which will be refunded 100% without any depreciation during the first year, i.e. the so-called “first risk”.
IN CASE OF THEFT
You have to communicate the theft to Sicursell, adding date and place informations, and immediately report it to the Police using the specially provided form (available in your reserved area) or reproducing in the Police report the informations it contains. This will allow you to generate an unequivocal report useful to the recovery of your saddle in case of its finding. The report is essential to activate the insurance policy. You have to pass on a copy of the report by mail to: firstname.lastname@example.org
