Save Your Horse!

A Horse Owner's Guide to Large Animal Rescue

Save Your Horse

Approximately two percent of all firefighters have learned this specialized training (or one trained responder per 400 horses in the US; 1 trained responder per 2000 horses in Canada). According to experts, the most critical safety issue at the scene of a large animal incident is the responders' lack of knowledge of and experience around large animals. Untrained responders coupled with uninformed veterinarians and injured horses is a recipe for disaster!

Don't jeopardize your horse, yourself or your responders! This book will teach you AND your responders how to be safe and keep your horse alive. Now in its fifth edition, this book has large type and a large size to make it easier to use in low light and is filled with drawings and photos!

Calling all Volunteers!


As part of our mission to bring safety to ALL, we would like to translate our classes and books into as many major languages as possible. For instance, we have donated the LAR book and all classes to several Humane Societies and rescues in the Caribbean. Unfortunately, these products have just gone to English speaking countries because the language barrier makes teaching difficult.

A French translation means that countries like Bonaire and Haiti, Rwanda and Vietnam will have access to this class.

If you know Latin Spanish and would like to translate a class or book, please let us know. It would mean that Central and South America, as well as the Dominican Republic, Puerto Rico and Cuba would have this knowledge. It would also mean that poor Hispanic areas of the US and Canada would benefit.

According to Wikipedia, the top ten languages are Mandarin, Spanish, Hindi/Urdu, Arabic, Bengali, Portugese, Russian, Japanese and German, and of course English. We have English covered, but welcome help with the others.

Send us an email detailing your interest to Languages The animals of the world will thank you.
