What started as a pleasant day on the trail could have turned deadly when the riverbank failed as riders watered their horses. Thankfully, the area has a team of trained responders. This is how they helped.

The dinner and lecture will take place Aug. 15 at Fasig-Tipton, in Lexington, Kentucky.
The event will help prepare first responders for dealing with animals, including horses, in the event of a disaster.
The course focused on the safe transfer and handling of horses and other large animals in emergency situations.
A basic training class and an operations-level course (which will be open to auditors) will be offered.
