    Default Schooling show safety practices/procedures, anyone have a template?

    I'm posting this to the dressage forum because that is the type of show I'm concerned with -- I'm looking for broad general guidelines/best practices for medical and other emergencies at horse shows, something that could be shared in a manual for volunteer schooling show managers. I have found some things in 4-H show manuals but wonder if anyone has examples to share from their GMO or from other small athletic events. The kinds of emergencies I'm thinking of include:
    --rider fall w/moderate to serioius injury
    -- spectator injured (e.g., on bleachers)
    -- sudden adverse weather conditions
    -- what, if any, first aid should be part of the show's supplies

    Things like that. Thanks!

    I am an eventer-- but when we host a schooling horse trials we pay for an EMT to be present with their equipment. (I think actually we make a donation to the local volunteer fire station and they send someone.)

    When I was on our GMO's board, many years ago, we had a book that outlined emergency procedures, but I think it was many for the recognized show that we hosted.

    You might try the USDF website, and look at the guidelines they have for recognized shows...they have some great information on their site.
