Presented by Iron Oak Canyon Ranch's Animal Care Academy, this segment of our Equine Education series of clinics and classes will focus on large-scale emergencies and evacuation readiness. In the event of a disaster, every horse and ranch owner should be prepared with emergency supplies and a plan.
In this class, you’ll learn how to create an emergency plan. When seconds count, having a course of action can be critical to saving lives. You’ll also learn what supplies you should have on hand, how to prepare for emergencies, and how to communicate effectively during one. Course topics will include staging, loading, supplies, backup plans, and training staff to react appropriately.
This class will be taught by ranch owner Lessa Ritzma, whose previous career credits include zookeeper and exotic animal trainer, along with over twenty years of horse experience, along with industry professionals and large animal evacuation experts.
This is an audit-only, hands-off class. All participants will qualify for the Equine Education: Emergency and Evacuation Preparation credit for Iron Oak Canyon Ranch's Equine Education certificate. It will also qualify for a bonus credit for the Animal Behavior certificate.
$25 per participant for 2-hour class. Limit 50 participants. Weather permitting.
