"The nature of their work means riders face high risk levels; sadly, that's reflected in the volume of injuries reported every year.
These are people frequently riding and handling horses, often working in remote locations, so it's vital to know what to do when accidents happen – particularly as injuries can be significant and life-threatening.
Our expert trainers will equip people with first aid skills to help them how to deal with a range of incidents in the countryside. This can mean the difference between a life lost and a life saved in an emergency."
