Volunteers with suitable vehicles and floats fitted out with communication radios will always have a role within a horse event. An oval or paddock holding a central horse competition will only require one dedicated horse ambulance.
This vehicle & float are ready near the main competition arena for immediate use.
It is not enough to assume that “someone” in the float parking area would be willing to undertake this role at a moment’s notice.
