I always have Banamine on hand but you have to get it from your vet. It is an injection but if you know how to use it, it can save your horse's life. I believe it comes in a paste as well.
Benadryl is another thing I keep on hand, in capsule form.

Vet Wrap
Gauze rolls
Non-stick gauze pads
Rubber Gloves
Betadine Scrub (Iodine, for washing)
Betadine Solution (Iodine, for soaking)*

Oh and a snake bite kit
and diatomaceous earth
If I think of anything else I'll add it on.
I have a lot of things on there. I've worked with my vets and my nana is a very old fashioned person and likes to have everything on hand.
We have a lot of homemade recipes that work too. :]

I board and ride at a boarding barn that has most or all of these supplies in the office, but do you suggest making a little mini vet kit to keep in my tack trunk with just the main stuff, like gauze and vet wrap and all that stuff?

I have a LOT of stuff in my kit...from vet wrap, and vet RX, to Banamine, and penicillin. And yes, even though I have boarded mostly for the last 4 years, I ALWAYS have my own kit ready and available.

A side on Banamine (which I ALWAYS have on hand), it is best given IV...it can cause some issues when given IM, so if your vet is willing, have them show you how to inject it into the vein. Of course in an emergency it doesn't matter, but not only will it act faster given IV, but you reduce the muscular effects that it can have.

remember if you have a hot horse put iodine near the wound not on it!

Keep your feet on the ground when your head's in the clouds.

Having a card of what the regular horses heart, temperature and respiratory rates are might come in handy

I may have missed it but bleach is good to have on hand - very inexpensive way to kill germs on everything from buckets to bits

You can give liquid banamine orally and avoid the issues with giving it IM.

It's not muscular effects - it will potentially cause a chlostridial infection.
