We were asked by Yorkshire Ambulance Service (YAS) to help with a 58 year old horse rider who had been thrown from her horse in a remote area between Cold Moor and Cringle Moor.
We assisted the ambulance paramedic with the lady’s treatment before carrying her on a stretcher in our Landrover ambulance to a nearby farm about a kilometre from where she fell.
The lady was then transferred to the YAS ambulance for her journey to James Cook University Hospital.
Twelve team members were involved in the incident that lasted around 90 minutes.
Applications can be made to join the team in a support role (Operational Support) or as a hill going (Search and Rescue) member.
Applications for either role can be made at any time. Intakes for Operational Support members occur at various times of the year. There is one annual intake for Search and Rescue normally each September.Join Now
