Recent Event - Floating your horse safely

Saturday 17th July 2021

10:30am - 1pm

A number of people went away with greater insights than they came with by hearing how to get your horse, vehicle and float prepared for safe floating. Ensure you are both ready for fire or emergency evacuation or a day out. In this workshop Pam Reid ESI Coach provided us with training principles to allow us to work with our horses and establish confidence in floating. Additionally, we learned about float and vehicle compliance from SA Police so both we and our horses are safer whilst floating on the roads.
