First aid training for the Equestrian industry

We understand how important first aid training and health and safety is to companies and employers; but we also understand how hard it can be to fit these courses around a busy working environment.

First aid training for the Equestrian industryHere at RT Training we strive to make things easy for you. Together with your input we can provide courses that are suited to fit your needs and tailored to your particular work environment. Whether it be an office, factory, stable, school, or out in the field. We provide highly trained instructors specialised within your industry, who through their experience and understanding of your sector, can not only work around you and the best interests of your organisation, but also, and perhaps more importantly, provide a bespoke service that ensures the best possible protection for your employees, clients and customers.

We are members of the Federation of First Aid Training Organisations, are a Highfield Awarding Body approved centre, and are an Adventure Activities Licencing Authority approved provider.

We offer specialised equine first aid courses for the equestrian industry. This includes bespoke versions our popular first aid courses. All courses adhere to HSE’s and first aid industry standards, with additional content modified to suit requirements for equine related injuries and risk. These include:

  • Crush injuries
  • Head and spinal injuries
  • ‘Rider’ and ‘stable’ related injuries
  • Extreme body temperature
  • Instruction on correct first-aid equipment needed for equine first-aid.

And more.

Our three day  First Aid at Work [Equestrian industry Course]

This course provides delegates with a standard Highfield Awarding Body HSE First Aid at Work qualification. This course would cover the fully HSE syllabus, but there would be particular emphases on the issues that are likely to occur in a equine environment e.g. spinal, head and other impact/crush injuries, fractures and dislocations, as well as Hypothermia, Exposure and Heat Exhaustion; beyond this we would look to tailored this course for your particular work environment.

Our four day  First Aid at Work [Equestrian and Incident Management Course]

This second option has the HSE First Aid at Work qualification as its core, again with a special focus on spinal, head and other impact/crush injuries, fractures and dislocations, as well as Hypothermia, Exposure and Heat Exhaustion; but then importantly this second course has a fourth day outdoor ‘Incident Management’ component.

Through a series of simulation exercises, this fourth day would provide the delegates with hands-on practical First Aid ‘incident management’ challenges, appropriate to the sorts of ‘real life’ First Aid scenarios they might encounter in their workplace.

The fourth day would be very focused on the practical issues around the ‘incident management issues’ associated with multi casualty events, spinal injuries, head and other impact/crush injuries, fractures and dislocations, as well as Hypothermia, Exposure and Heat Exhaustion.

Going for the second option, means an employer is able to demonstrate that they have gone beyond the basics, and have put in place some gold standard provision; which should ever anything go wrong, would stand the employer in very good stead.

Each delegate will be provided with a First Aid at Work Training Handbook and an emergency response training pack.

On successful completion of the course, each delegate is issued with their own First Aid Certificate [valid for three years].

In addition our trainers are all experienced around horses and understand the workings of a busy stable. Therefore our instructors are able to work around the requirements of the horse, and staff attending to those needs.
