January 20 @ 11:00 am - 2:00 pm$60
During the winter months when the weather is too cold to be out riding for too long, come spend some time learning how to be the best we can be for our trusty steeds.
This mini course will cover how to take the basic vital signs on our horses and what those normal values should be.
How to do recognize symptoms with your horse and be able to determine when it’s time to call the vet.
How to listen for guts sounds to be sure your horse isn’t on their way to colic and some simple and powerful things to do help them.
We will go over how to apply safe and simple wraps and how to treat wounds to get the best results for healing.
We will also go over a general first aid kit to carry with you on the trail or back country, and how to perform emergency first aid on the trail.
