I understand first hand the feeling of pure helplessness when your horse is injured. No horse owner wants to feel unprepared or unequipped to administer both basic and emergency treatment during a crucial time of need.
I started First Equine Aid out of personal need. My own horse was injured at a boarding facility and I was unprepared to help him. We also often ride in remote areas that don't typically have cell service. I wanted to educate myself on how to care for my horse in case of an emergency, and soon realized, these skills are invaluable to fellow horse owners and riders.
As a course instructor, I travel to barns in the Kentucky area and beyond teaching first aid courses to kids, teens, and adults from beginner through advanced.
