Board members Wayne Elkins and Dani Horton, recently earned their Large Animal Rescue certification.
Horton said the best part was, “gaining the knowledge and the skills to help an animal in need.”
The training covered:
- How to build and use rigging systems
- How to use rope and webbing for rescue
- How to use the rescue glide for moving the horse
- How to rig pulley systems
- How to use the portable crane to lift the horse
- How to tend to a flipped trailer with horses
- How to save horses from a ditch, mud, body of water
The two day training took place at Quantum Leap in Odessa, on December 7-8, 2013. At the end of the two-day clinic, both received their certificates.
“We never know when there will be an emergency and the more prepared we are the better the chances are for the animal,” Horton added.
