A simplified compact lifting or drag system for horse owners, veterinarians, first responders or others to help a horse that is down or trapped.
The Loops Equine Rescue System (LERS) can help in many situations. The system is effective in commonly used technical rescue procedures, including lifting a down horse. The system has been evaluated in peer reviewed publication research studies. It is designed for short term field use situations and does not replace prior full body lifting systems. The advantages to this system is that it lifts by the skeletal system, there are no knots, no J hooks, no metal bars and it fits in a small size duffel bag which can be carried in a horse trailer or be in the tack room. Fire Departments doing equine technical rescue can carry this small bag without displacing other equipment.
