Isle of Man Welfare Week: Equine First Aid

21 Apr 2022

Thursday 21 April | 10.00 am - 2.00 pm

This training session will teach you all you need to know about basic equine first aid, helping you to become capable and confident in dealing with common ailments, injuries and diseases.

We will guide you to answer the questions: what is an emergency and when exactly should you call the vet? Helping you to keep costs down and equine welfare up! Perhaps, most importantly, teaching you what you can do to give your horse the best possible outcome in an emergency situation.

The training is led by experienced equine vet, Liz Brown BSc BVSc MRCVS, and includes classroom sessions and hands-on practice.

This interactive and engaging training has already helped many horse owner and riders and here's what they had to say:

"Keep doing this sort of thing, it helps beat myths! Enthusiastic and knowledgeable presentation"

"A large amount of information in a small amount of time, when to call the vet was among the most useful tips"

"Clear information, good friendly atmosphere; I was made to feel welcome and included. Well organised professional yet relaxed event, thank you"

Tickets cost: £20 each, plus booking fees.
Participants will get a goody bag of essential first aid equipment to take home, including a stethoscope and digital thermometer. Spaces are limited and allocated on a first come first served basis.

The training starts: 10 am lasts around four hours.
Tea and coffee will be available; please bring your own packed lunch if you’re likely to get hungry.
