Developed for BHS Hampshire by the world-leading Large Animal Rescue Team at Hampshire Fire and Rescue, this workshop is for all horse owners, equine establishment proprietors and equine professionals to assist them in reacting positively to unforeseen eventualities and be better prepared for emergency situations.
