We attend yards and riding establishments, don’t mind getting dirty, thoroughly enjoy the horsey chatter & we most importantly make first aid fun. Oh, and we work around you and your horses schedules.

Kay adds that if someone is with a person that has an accident they tend to panic because they don’t know what to do. And often it’s what not to do that’s the most important thing to learn.
