Horse falls in a swimming pool.
Horse rescued from sink hole.
Horse falls down an embankment.

These are just a few of the headlines that have made it into the news lately. Understanding the need for an emergency rescue team, HHT sent two field agents to get trained in emergency rescue techniques under the direction of Tomas & Rebecca Gimenez.


Over the past few years HHT has had situations that would have warranted the use of special equipment that would have made a rescue easier and quicker. Our goal is to be fully equipped to handle large animal rescues by the end of 2009.

We have received funding for an emergency rescue glide and are thrilled to have such an important piece of rescue equipment at our disposal. Three rescues  in the past year that involved Wonder, Angel and Melissa would have benefited had we had this equipment then. Below is a list of equipment we hope to have available to use within the next 12 months. As we raise the money to purchase this equipment we will post updates to our inventory.

Hemi laid for 3 days in the mud hole he had dug trying to get up. Covered in mud, and only 4 years old, Hemi was gently placed on our Rescue Glide, Slid into our trailer, and transported to UT for a humane euthanasia. Tonight he is no longer in pain and running free over the Rainbow Bridge.
