Question ? What do You Put in a Horse First Aid Kit ?

First of all, please note that I have owned horses for a number of years and been around them for all my life, I have now decided to move to a new livery yard so I am buying new equipment for me and the horses I own/ride. I am used to borrowing equipment from my old yard and I'm now buying my own equipment (I'm sure you know why).

The magic question is; what do I get for my horsey first aid kit?

If you comment, thanks. No nasty/unappropriate comments please!

Hi, theres already a thread on this which may be able to help you with your question. Of course, your not expected to buy all the gear straight up. Just start with the basics - Antibiotic Spray, Vet Wrap, etc.
