Equine Encounters – Initial

One Day Workshop £160 per person (maximum 10 people)

Designed to support our work in ensuring not only emergency responders, but all those dealing with incidents involving equines are provided with both training and standardisation of techniques and in turn achieving a wide scale seamless, professional approach to dealing with all incidents involving animals.

The initial level of our Equine Encounter range of courses is suitable for those people that might come into contact with equines during their normal working day. This highly practical workshop is suitable for yard staff, welfare groups and all emergency responders.
