A fantastic First Aid Training Course, certainly the best I have attended over the years. Kay delivered the course with exactly the right amount of fun and seriousness, oh and brought very delicious cakes on the last day too!!!!! I am going to organise a one day First Aid course with Medi K for my liveries, it makes you realise how important it is and would recommend anyone involved with horses on any level to take a Training Course with Kay.
