HFC members stood by at the Horse Park of New Jersey for the international Jersey Fresh event. This is a major event and is a pre-qualifier for the Olympics. Crews are requested to standby to assist in the event that there is an incident with a downed rider and/or horse, particularly if an extrication is required if a fence is involved. We had the pleasure of working with the Massachusetts SPCA equine ambulance crew, whom conducted training that we had attended earlier in the year. During our pre-planning the night before the event, some of the international judges were pleased to have the opportunity to look at 8281.
