What would you do if your horse was trapped in an overturned trailer, or fell into a ravine or well?

Why should horse owners know about Large Animal Rescue?

It's scary to think that the very people who are trained to care for you in an accident probably don't have the training to help your horse. Most Emergency Responders are not used to handling large animals. Although well meaning, they can inadvertently injure your horse, as well as themselves and bystanders, when trying to help. Not only is Large Animal Rescue not usually covered in their training, it can be downright dangerous in ways they don't understand!

  • Be prepared to help your horse when no one else can
  • Keep a copy of this vital book in your trailer
  • Buy copies for your horse friends as gifts
  • Donate copies to your local firefighters and large animal veterinarians
