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!
