Free Webinar: Disaster Preparedness for Horse Farms - Horses In Floods, Earthquakes, Tornadoes, Wildfires and Hurricanes – Is Your Barn Prepared?

Tags :

In the last two years, the equestrian community has been hit extremely hard by natural disasters. From the wildfires in both the USA and Australia to the tornadoes in the Midwest and the South to the flooding in the East, most equestrians either know someone personally or have experienced first hand the tragedies and destruction these events can have. Floods, earthquakes, hurricanes, tornadoes and wildfires are generally beyond our control, and any of these events can have devastating affects on communities and individuals.

Emergency personnel can be overwhelmed saving human lives, but what about your horses? Horse professionals have the additional responsibility of trying to ensure the safety of the animals in their care. Having a plan can make a difference. We invite you to attend Equestrian Professional’s free horse business webinar on disaster preparedness, and learn what you can do to keep your horses, your barn and yourself safe.
