Winter Education Series #1: Equine First Aid and Basic Medical Care
First of five unmounted sessions held once per month on Saturday afternoons throughout the winter. Expand your equine education with hands on learning opportunities about topics you don't usually get a chance to learn about in weekly riding lessons!
This first session will focus on equine first aid. Ever wonder what you should have in your medical kit? Do you know what the signs of colic are? Do you know how to apply a standing wrap or stack bandage? Do you know how to take temperature, pulse, and respiration or know what the normal ranges for those are in horses? Learn all this and more in this session!
