Large Animal Rescue Training Course: 2020 CANCELLED

Due to the uncertainty surrounding COVID 19, the Western Australian Horse Council has, with regret, elected to cancel the 2020 AR3 Large Animal Rescue Training.  

The WA Horse Council, member organisation of the Committee for Animal Welfare in Emergencies (CAWE), is once again bringing the Large Animal Rescue Training Course to the State Equestrian Centre, Brigadoon in May. For further information on the course and to register see the Flyer or visit the WA Horse Council Facebook page.
