Safe & Successful Large Animal Rescue Training – Nov 10th



The Basic Rigging for Large Animal Rescue training held at Holmestead Farm in Germanton, NC on Sunday, November 10th was safe and successful! There were participants from across the region, some from Virginia, all with various backgrounds, that worked hard throughout the day to learn and share ideas about large animal rescue. Special thanks to our volunteer and very knowledgeable  instructors of the day:  Scottie Emerson, Jim Young & Sandy Mayberry. And a very special thanks to John and Tara Stebbins for their hospitality and use of their farm for this training.

Take a look at the teamwork exhibited in the training pictures!
