“This book could save your horse’s life!”
Every horse, no matter how quiet or well educated, has the potential to become involved in an emergency incident and need to be rescued. If this were to happen to you, how confident are you that you could contribute to the rescue of your horse without further injuring him or putting your own life and the lives of others at risk?
Equine Emergency Rescue is written for horse owners, emergency responders, equine vets, RSPCA and stock inspectors, race course vets and barrier staff and anyone else who works with horses because, if emergency responders who attend an incident involving a horse do not understand horses or are unfamiliar with Large Animal Rescue techniques, this book shows them step-by-step instructions and reassures them that using these steps will increase their own safety and that of the horse.
Equine Emergency Rescue is a guide to the methods and tools necessary to successfully extricate a horse or other large animal from entrapment using low-tech, low-risk options that are easier, quicker and safer than extreme techniques using helicopters, cranes or 4WD vehicles. It is currently being translated into German to reach a wider audience.
