First Aid Kit

If your horse does any traveling, you should have two first aid kits: one in the stable and one in the trailer in case your horse receives injury away from home.
  • Bath and hand towels for applying pressure to slow or stop heavy bleeding
  • Rolls of gauze bandage and gauze squares for dressings.
  • Surgical tape and duct tape (for keeping things where you put them)
  • Rubber bands (for keeping tail or mane out of the way of an injury)
  • Scissors
  • Wrapping bandages
  • Leg wraps
  • Spray bottle
  • Petroleum jelly
  • Ointment
  • Clean water
  • Large syringe for wound flushing
  • Sterile saline solution
  • Betadine or other disinfectant
  • Tweezers
  • Q-tips
  • Silverquine gel
