EMERGENCY EQUINE FIRST AID
It’s not a matter of if, it’s a matter of WHEN.
Equine first aid is the earliest help provided to a horse following injury or detected illness. Prompt emergency treatment can preserve a horse’s life, alleviate suffering, aid the veterinarian’s efforts, and promote recovery.
Join us for a day of hands-on learning so you can gain the confidence to help your horse in an emergency.
