Equine Emergency First Aid Certification Class

Our EquiAid Emergency First Aid for Horses provides an introductory overview of how to manage common medical emergencies when they happen to horses. 

Classes can be held with or without live horses. We depend on ranches, stables and other riding facilities to provide a location to hold the class and 3-4 safe quiet horses to use for demonstration and training. Our instructors are all expert horsemen and women that have worked extensively in the equine health care and veterinary industry. Facilities that would like to host a class will need to provide a comfortable area for the participants to sit in for the lecture portion of the class and an arena or round pen large enough to work safely with the horses. If you have questions about hosting a class you are welcome to call us at 844-PET-CPR9 or email info.petemergency@gmail.com.

Topics covered in this training include: Transporting and restraining sick and/or injured horses, how to prepare an emergency plan and first aid kit for your farm, how to perform triage, physical assessments, obtaining vital signs, managing traumatic injuries such as wounds and fractures, how to apply an emergency splint, how to use emergency first aid equipment and more.  

We will discuss the important supplies that should be found in the equine first aid kit and how to use them as well as how to administer first aid for choke, colic, dehydration, severe bleeding, burns, eye injuries, digestive Issues, emergencies that happen on the trail/horse shows and more. In classes where we utilize live horses each participant will be able to perform physical exams, obtain vital signs, bandage limbs, learn the use of equipment such as hooftesters, stethoscopes and more. If live horses are not available models will be used.

Registration Fee- $69.95 per person
