Are you owned by a horse?
This beloved family member may need emergency rescue at some time in his life. With this course, you and your family can learn how you can be prepared to rescue him. Why wait until disaster strikes? Keep yourself safe when helping your horse!

According to experts, the most critical safety issue at the scene of a large animal incident is the responders’ lack of knowledge of and experience aroundlarge animals. They’re not trained for it, and it is dangerous in ways they just don’t understand. You, as a horse owner should be prepared to help them. Know how rescues are structured and the language used so your help will be accepted by the professionals!
