What to do in case an emergency happens and you don't have a vet to call

I always hear these awful stories about people out trail riding or moving cattle and something happens to one of their horses.  I realized if I had an emergency with my horse in a situation as these I would have no idea what to do.  At home I call the vet, but what if I didn’t have a vet just a phone call away what would I do.

I found an outstanding article with suggestions for when an emergency situation arises with your horse and you don’t have a vet to call.  Cynthia McFarland and Linda Tellington-Jones give great on how to use TTouch for specific scenarios.

Would you know what to do if your horse ties up or colic’s on the trail?  McFarland and Tellington-Jones give step by step instructions on how to effectively do belly lifts to relieve the symptoms until you can reach a vet.  They also give suggestions for shock, injury, gas colic, exhaustion and fatigue. 

I hope the information in this article can help save the life of your horse and give you tools to better prepare you in case of an emergency.
