Stay Safe Working With Horses
Stay Safe Working with Horses is a browser-based interactive application designed to promote safety awareness when handling horses. This application takes a hands-on approach to horse handling safety as it offers various safety tips throughout its three stages. Taking the form of a point-and-click adventure, the player must complete each stage by clicking on the numerically coordinated text boxes that, once activated, reveal safety tips for the proper handling of horses. After the completion of each stage, the application will run a full-motion animation, summarizing the stage’s lesson. In the later stages of the application, the player will learn about the temperament of horses as well as safety tips upon releasing their horse from the stable using the same point-and-click mechanics.
The interactive is only playable on platforms that support Adobe Flash and is not supported on mobile devices. It includes voiceover narration, which can be turn on and off by clicking a sound icon at the top of the screen.
