13 February 2016 is Equine Safety Day in Scotland – sign up for a place
Don’t miss the chance to make yourself a safer and more prepared rider with BHS on 13 February at Blue Ridge Equestrian centre near Falkirk, when police, fire brigade and paramedics all join road safety and riding hat experts for a one day conference aimed at reducing equestrian accidents and stable fires throughout Scotland.
After a morning of talks Police Scotland Mounted Branch will give a demonstration on the sort of hazard training that police horses undergo with ideas of how we can all make our horses more resilient.
There will be a hands on demonstration of large animal rescue led by Susan Maxwell of Scottish Fire and Rescue showcasing the work that goes into achieving a safe resolution when things do go wrong, then the dog handling teams from Police Scotland will polish of this interactive afternoon with tips on dog training and the familiarisation of horses and dogs.
Kristine Hynd , BHS Scotland’s national safety officer said; 'We have aimed to put together an interesting equestrian programme that will put a preventative message across in an educational way.'
