Large Animal Rescue training pays off!
Two years ago the New Mexico Horse Council along with
Corrales Horse and Mule People (C.H.A.M. P.) helped sponsor a community Large
Animal Rescue pilot program. The training
was presented to first responders by Code 3 of Denver. That training paid off July 7 when a horse was
rescued from an irrigation ditch near Corrales Road and Alameda. The rescue harness used on the horse was
obtained by the Corrales Fire Department with the help of NMHC and
C.H.A.M.P. A story on the July 7 rescue
appeared in the July 9 Rio West section of the Albuquerque Journal.
