Equine Safety & Ambulance Program

Rescue Glide

This is the Original Rescue Glide designed, manufactured and used by professionals for over thirteen years. The Rescue Glide has been an integral part of the MSPCA at Nevins Farm Equine Safety & Ambulance Program since its design. We have moved down horses off of fields, out of bogs and through stall doorways into our equine ambulances using the Original Rescue Glide.

The most flexible glide available will never lose its original shape. All metal pieces are aluminum to prevent rusting and the screws are countersunk for safety. As part of the MSPCA's Equine Ambulance Program, it is used to take horses out of stalls, therefore it needs to be flexible enough to fit through a stall doorway.

Our Rescue Glides are being used at humane societies, municipalities, private companies, veterinarians and universities throughout North America.

Some of these institutions include:

  • Days End Farm Horse Rescue, Maryland
  • Minnesota Hooved Animal Rescue
  • New York City Police Mounted Patrol
  • Pennsylvania State Animal Rescue Teams
  • Charlottetown Veterinary Clinic PEI Canada
  • Fairfield Equine Clinic, Connecticut
  • Genesee Valley Equine Clinic, New York
  • Cornell University
  • Tufts University Cummings School of Veterinary Medicine
  • University of Georgia
  • University of Minnesota
  • University of Ontario at Guelph Canada
  • University of Pennsylvania New Bolton Center
  • Virginia Tech at the Marion DuPont Equine Medical Center
