Young rider gets a lesson in operating a hose

(CNS): Members of the Cayman Islands Fire Service recently visited the Cayman Riding School (CRS) to teach young riders about fire safety in the stables as well as in the home. The school is affiliated with the British Pony Club and so runs a programme every Saturday afternoon for ages five and up to teach all about the care, riding and welfare of horses, including fire prevention and safety.

With that last goal in mind, four officers with two fire trucks were on hand to inform 25 young people about the operation of the Fire Service and how to prevent fire.

“We are so grateful to the fire officers for giving up their time and coming along to Cayman Riding School,” said Tracey Surrey, the owner and one of the riding instructors at CRS. “It is so important that we teach fire prevention and all sorts of safety issues to our children – it is never too early to learn.

“We recently held a human first aid course and before that an animal welfare session with a local vet as part of the British Pony Club programme – our young children have gained a wealth of practical knowledge that they can take with them into their daily life.”
