Emergency Planning

Horses present a special challenge when a major disaster hits, and we want all of our readers to stay safe, along with their horses. It’s always a good reminder to have emergency planning in place and be ready in case of a natural disaster or other emergency. Wildfires, floods, and hurricanes are among the most destructive disasters. If you have to evacuate your home, it’s essential to know what options you have for your animals. Horse Illustrated shares tips on emergency planning and first aid and shares stories from those who have dealt with major catastrophes. In addition, we share news about recent natural disasters and how they’ve impacted the horse industry.
