This course requires the Basic Health and Emergency First Aid course as a pre-requisite and we are offering it on Oct 25th, 2019.
This class is intended to cover more serious injuries as well as prepare a person when they are not close to home/veterinary care, or in remote areas difficult to access. This will probably be a favorite among the Back-Country Horse(wo)men folks. We cover how to PLAN for a trip including destination factors, assessing if a horse is conditioned for use and how to get him/her in condition, assessing the risk factors (weather, trail conditions, wildlife, toxic fauna), and what information to have in case of emergency. We also cover PREPARATION: understanding a horse and working safely around it, what to pack for the horse/human, what to keep in your trailer, different types of communication; planning food and water, how to prepare if you live remotely. And finally REACTING: how to work with a panicked horse, assessing severity and treating bleeding, gut, chest wounds, foreign bodies, burns/bites/stings, broken bones/fractures, colic/compaction, trapped horses, extreme weather, predator attacks, what to do if you get lost, or if your equipment fails, administering meds, and finally euthanasia. This course also comes with a 50+ page handbook to put in your first aid kits for reference.
*All attendees receive a Certificate of Completion
