Many people do not do the rotational dewormer method anymore. Those who don't, won't get a kit. Instead they use the results of a Fecal Egg Count (FEC) to determine what their horse needs to be dewormed with. The benefit of this is that the horse gets what it actually needs instead of what it might need and the parasites can't build a resistance by the usage of something ineffective. The downside to the FEC is the cost - it does cost per test and you have to handle poop.
If your horse is pastured with others you can split the cost of the test with the other horses in the field and that saves a bit. Right now, I split the test and instead of $18 per test I spend $3.60.
