Hello Cheryl,

Here is what I recommend for my clients I see on a regular basis (as we can not leagally prescribe medication for a patient we have not seen within 12 months) in regards to just medications to have on hand.

Phenylbutazone (Bute)
Flunixamine (Banamine)
Trimethoprimsulfa (TMS, SMZ, Sulfas....what ever name you know them by)
Acepromazine (Ace)
Dexamethazone (Dex)
Neo-poly-bacitracin ophthalmic ointment (eye ointment witn NO steroid)

It's a pretty short list for most clients when talking about prescription medications. I also advise my clients to always call me before needing to give anything so we can discuss the situation. I say this a lot, but you should have the type of relationship with your vet, where you feel comfortable calling them just to ask questions.

There are a whole slew of recommendations regarding things to have in a first aid kit, and the post has been stickied in the health section.

I think it is also important that you know how to give injections and that you practice (because likely you will be nervous to panicky when you actually need to do them) so that you can make sure you can get the meds you need into your horse. If you don't know how, your vet should be more than willing to give you a tutorial. I definitely recommend checking out the first aid sticky as well!
