Horsemanship Level 4: Vet & First Aid
The Vet & First Aid section of Level 4 Horsemanship is very similar to the Level 3 requirements, the difference being you are expected to know the subject more thoroughly.
8. Vet & First Aid. T, P, R; Identify minor wounds; cause, care & treatment.
Since these topics are covered quite thoroughly in previous blog posts you can review them here:
- Temperature, Pulse & Respiration: ‘Healthy as a Horse’
- Minor wounds & treatment: ‘Keep Calm and Stop the Bleeding First’
At level 4 you may be asked to demonstrate taking your horse’s vital signs, or to show in the first aid kit what materials you would use to treat a wound. However, you will not be asked to apply bandages until level 5.
