So a remark by Younger Sister 2 tonight sent me on a completely uncontrollable question and answer search. She said she was going to go ride a friend’s greenie but would be alone.
That statement had me wondering what would happen if she needed to avail herself of EMS services for an ambulance ride to the hospital. Would EMS ( in the complete absence of another human capable of taking control of the horse) throw that horse in a stall or round pen to prevent further injuries? If they did, would they even know how to take a bridle off? Or a saddle? Would they even do that if possible? It also got me thinking that with as many horses are in our area, EMS/Fire/Police need to at least know to throw the horse in a stall or pasture and how to do it safely. It’s got me wondering if there is any sort of large animal training that they have to or can take.
What about in y’all’s area? Is there any large animal or equine specific training that you know of that Fire/EMS/Police have available to them? Do y’all have any suggestions?
I would love if any current or former first responders could give me some insight please!
