Wink Horse First Aid Kits

So this is a theoretical question: If you were to tell a completely beginner horseperson what they need in a horse first aid kit, what would you say? Don't assume anything. Tell what you have in yours. Let's see how this goes....

This is a good question. I have NO idea! I was just thinking yesterday at Fleet Farm that I should really buy some wound spray or something, but I don't have any idea what kinds qork best, or what. I'd guess some ointment for wounds. Beyond that... No idea. I'd be interested in hearing as well.

I would first tell them to talk to there vet about what they need what I have in my is ace shot and bamame shot and past wraps with quilts, gaze there is a whole list on the U.S riders web site that will tell you what you need and should have this is a great question

Yes do! clem had some nasty bite marks on her poll the other week (they're healing nicely). Had NO idea what to do for them, so I just didn't. LOL

That being said she still rules the herd with a pin of her ears so I'm guessing some poor horse in the pasture is worse off! Hopefully their owner knew better than I did what to do!

But what stuff do you believe any good horse person should have around?

Swat, iodine, vet wrap, fly spray, would be my MUST haves.
There's lots of other things but those will get you through the typicall day to day nicks and scrapes.
