Training horse lovers in Equine First Aid & Health

Equine First Aid Training saves the lives of horses and we are pleased to offer a variety of equine first aid clinics to horse owners of any age or level of experience.

Accidents and injuries can happen at any time anywhere, for any number of reasons. This makes it essential that everyone involved with horses--riders, instructors, grooms, competitors, volunteers--knows how to administer first aid. When minutes count, you need to know how to make the most of every second.

Equine First Aid courses provide a basic overview of first aid procedures, and include a focus on many common horse health conditions you may be dealing with on a day to day basis. Our goal is to give you the peace of mind knowing that you can step in and help your horse when you need to until a professional arrives.
