From Annette Doerr, NYSHC- Palisades Region
Just a quick note to thank you for your program. You did an awesome job with it, I'm very impressed! We're received such a positive response from the County Fire Coordinator that they're chomping at the bit to get started! We'll be implementing many of your websites ideas and I wanted to thank you for making our horses safer, one by one, county by county!!
I'll be in touch as I will need to order more books after our monthly meeting. I think anyone with a horse needs to own this book, you did a great job on it.
From Tracey Merrett, Lockport, NY
Just a note to let you know that I love my book! It is all I hoped for and more. I think all of the fire companies in small communities should have a copy!

At [a friend's] suggestion, I checked out and ordered SAVE YOUR HORSE! by Michelle Staples, Red Jeans Ink, 2006.
As a retired fire fighter, I wish I'd had this book back when I ran fire calls. Fortunately, I never encountered a trailer accident. I have rescued a number of loose horses on highways, for which I'm always thankful that I'm a horse person.
Michelle has done an outstanding job of cutting to the chase and outlining definitive steps for several rescue scenarios. What's more, she has written this book so that it can be easily integrated into the Incident Command structure used by most jurisdictions. Her suggestions are valid for owners as well as first responders. I will warn you that some of the photos are graphic and difficult to see, but very necessary to illustrate points in the scenarios.
I would HIGHLY recommend that folks have this book with them in their towing vehicle, along with the equine's coggins and health certificates.
From Robin Marshall, Horse Talk in New Zealand
The book just blew me away - thanks for writing it!
From Debbie Dever in Skye, Victoria, Australia
I got your book today.... WOW! what a fantastic job you've done. I've had a quick flick through and I'm impressed... I will most definitely be showing it around for you and hope to get you some business from this end.
From Alison McDougall, Guelph, Ontario, Canada
I think your book is awesome and I am planning on showing it to all my horse friends.
From Magnus Magnusson, Industrial Rescue and Safety Equipment, Lerum, Sweden
My order arrived safely today. The book looks great.
From Lynne Beaird in Catawba, NC
Thank you for writing that wonderful book. Much needed information and so valuable. You are a gem.
From Laurie Loveman, Fire Safety in Horse Barns-Firehouse Family Novels at www.laurieloveman.com
If it is possible to "love" a book about such a serious topic, then I love yours! You have just done everything right.
From David Whyte, Strathclyde Fire & Rescue Service, Ardrossan, Scotland
Once again many thanks for the book. What we are currently doing is, in conjunction with the material contained in the book, preparing a series of training events directed towards animal rescue. This training will be delivered to 15 of our rural fire stations which attend this type of call.
From Steve Veale, Cornwall Fire District, Cornwall, England
Many thanks for the book, some very interesting and useful stuff within. I have passed it on to the crews at one of our rescue tender stations for them to use as a training aid, it was very well received.
From Bev and Marv Dutra, Philo, CA
