Search and Rescue Mounted Unit

Advanced Tactical Training Search and Rescue is involved in different aspects of Searches.

One area is the Mounted Unit.

In 2018 we started working with some riders and their horses who had taken an initial Mounted Unit Scent detection course.

These horses, with their riders, started to learn how to search using their horses, not only for elevation, but also scent work.

These amazing animals in conjunction with their riders are going to be trained to work with our team as a whole. As with any of our specialised groups, every member of the mounted unit will be qualified in ground search and rescue, with the additional training of the use with their horses.

Like our canine section, it is a continued devoted training for all involved. We are proud of this new addition to our group and look forward to training with them, as we expand our ability to help those in need even further.
