Hope Fire Company members were trained on horse physiology- particularly the horses’ eye sight, how their brains process what they see, and the corresponding reactions. HFC members were then trained on how to handle horses in the event of an emergency situation in which we are called to assist. We’d like to send out a special thank you to the local horse owner community, for reaching out to us to have this incorporated into our training schedule- thank you for helping us help you!
