Accidents and injuries can happen at any time anywhere, for any number of reasons. This makes it essential that everyone involved with horses – riders, instructors, grooms, competitors, volunteers, and fence judges – knows how to administer first aid, and that every professional has a recognised and up-to-date First Aid qualification (a prerequisite for being included on the Register of Instructors).
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. The course takes place over two days.
