Eques Solutions was proud to organize a Horse Handling Clinic for the Palm Beach County Fire Rescue. The idea for this event came about after the fire at Gulfstream Polo Club. As a member of the Wellington Chamber of Commerce Equestrian Committee, the committee decided it would be a benefit for firemen in the western communities to learn how to handle horses and learn the nature of how horses think.
The event was held at Vinceremos Therapeutic Riding Center and the refreshments were sponsored by Floridian Community Bank. Instructing was a team effort with help from the VTRC staff, Lynn Fedash, Shiela Conde, Bobbi Rottman, and Victor Connor. Dr. Janet Greenfield-Davis spearheaded the education with demonstrations using the sweet horses from VTRC. The event was a great success with an attendance of 28 firemen and women from the western communities. We look forward to organizing other events like this one in the future. Special thanks to everyone that made this event a success including the PBC Fire Rescue!
