First Aid for Horse and Rider is essential for every tack room and saddlebag.
With simple language and a quick-access format, this book provides advice from both a DVM and an MD about handling all the common injuries and conditions that can arise when people and horses come together. It opens with an essential chapter on what to do if both horses and riders are injured.
For horses, it covers animal/insect bites, wounds and bleeding, bone injuries, eye conditions, heat stress, allergic reactions, hoof problems, acute lameness, and more. For riders, it covers CPR, head injuries, lightning injuries, bone and joint injuries and many other conditions.
