The Kentucky Horse Council and Murray State University has announced that two large animal rescue training programs will be conducted at Murray State University’s Equine Center in Murray, Kentucky.

The first program is a “Basic Ropes Training” to be offered July 18. The second is an “Operations-Level Technical Large Animal Emergency Rescue” (TLAER) training to be offered July 19-21.

The Basic Ropes Training will be taught by Eric Thompson, operations manager and training officer for Emergency Equine Response Unit and a responder for Code 3 Associates. It will be limited to 30 participants.

The TLAER course will be taught by Rebecca Gimenez, PhD, president of TLAER, Inc. There are two levels of involvement in the TLAER: participants and auditors. A limited number of participants will attend lectures and demonstrations, be involved in hands-on training, and receive operations certification for program completion from TLAER. Auditors will observe all lectures, demonstrations, and the hands-on sessions, but will not participate in the hands-on portion. They will receive a certificate of awareness from TLAER
