Hagyard to Offer Large Animal Emergency Response Training

Hagyard Equine Medical Institute of Lexington, Ky., strives to train veterinarians, first responders, and individual horse owners in large animal emergency response techniques by offering annual courses.

The group's next large animal emergency response training course will take place Aug. 20-21 and 22-23, at the Kentucky Horse Park. Each course is "hands-on" and uses live, trained horses. Training will include rescue and transport of a recumbent horse, containment of large animals, and mud and water rescue.

The cost of this course is $350 and includes lunch for both days. Pre-registration is required, and the class is restricted to 25 participants.
