BHS First Aid courses provide a basic overview of first aid procedures, and focus on the injuries most likely to be sustained while handling and riding horses. The course is appropriate for anyone involved with the handling of horses and will also teach you what to do if you are first on the scene of an accident. The emphasis of the training is on providing essential help until a professional arrives. It does include CPR training.
This two day course is for anyone who has had no first aid training, or whose qualification has lapsed. On completion you receive a certificate valid for two years. After completing this, every two years you will then need to do the BHS one day Refresher First Aid Course. Delegates need to be 16 years and over to attend.
This course is suitable for those wishing to join the BHS Register of Instructors, take BHS Examinations or the UKCC through the BHS.
