Lifting Project – Filming Day

Working group members and our Accredited Instructors are helping the BARTA team with filming the lifting project at our Horse Trust training centre.

We are being helped by Ollie Bensted-Smith from Buckinghamshire firm FAROL, who are supporting the project by supplying a Kramer Tele-handler and operator for the filming. If you want to find out more about FAROL, here is a link to their website:

On the day we will be filming: lifting off the ground with a medical suspension harness, lifting from an obstruction with the rescue harness and a combination lift and skid. Other areas included in the package will be: traversing uphill, looking at steerage, movement range and the role of the banks-person.

Later we plan to include the limitations of a fore-end loader and using both bipods and tripods.
