Here is what other riders/ owners found when they attended a course…

Jo Siddington – It’s a the first I had seen of a course like this, I wanted to be able to deal with emergency situations confidently prior to a vet coming and also to have more knowledge when to and not to call the vet. After the course I have more insight in to dealing with colic, better understanding generally of first aid and feeling more confident to deal with emergency situations.

Joseph Padworth – It is hard to pick what was the best thing. It was good to discuss the different type of illnesses and the scenario of the strangles cases was eye opening.

Jo Watlington – I really enjoyed the day and came away feeling it was a worthwhile investment of my time and money.
