After a mild start to winter, the EMSA’s Newsletter with its Winter Weather Plan Including Horses was published just before the blizzard of record hit the central Atlantic states. There are helpful tips for preparing, enduring and recovering from winter storms. One thing is certain, you’ll have need for a winter plan every year.
The Newsletter includes Dr. Stanitski’s President’s Letter and the introduction of new board member Peggy Entrekin. EMSA has established a protocol for dealing with serious accidents or injuries at horse events. This difficult topic often gets pushed out of mind, so EMSA has a guide to handling and managing such incidents for use by all facility managers. There is a note of congratulations to riding helmet manufacturer Charles Owens for its innovation award to develop new technologies for all sports.
