Riding is a dangerous sport, and it helps to be prepared when accidents happen. What would you do if someone had a bad fall and was injured? Would you know when to call 911? What the dispatcher would ask and how they could help? What actions to take if the injury is minor? When did you last take a CPR course and why are CPR and AED (Automated External Defibrillator) skills so important?
CPR and First Aid Training with an Equestrian Twist is taught by certified CPR, AED (Automated External Defibrillator) and First Aid Instructors who have experience with horses and equestrian sports. We use a nationally recognized curriculum which certifies participants in CPR and First Aid. We discuss situations unique to our work with horses including:
- prevention tips
- common injuries in an equestrian setting
- what to do if an injury happens
- when to call 911
- what information the dispatcher will need
- how dispatch can assist until emergency help arrives
