Horse trailers: Preventing tragedy in transport
This is an archived session from 2020.
Horse trailer incidents are very common. Do you have basic knowledge of simple maintenance and hitching concerns to prevent trailer wrecks? Who can approach a damaged horse trailer and provide assistance? What if there were 10 horses in a trailer at night, on the interstate and it is on fire? Who should deploy to assist and what are the challenges to extricate and rescue animals while keeping people safe? Technical large animal emergency rescue combines logistical, operational and functional challenges into some simple procedures and equipment for approaching any type of scene.
