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....:lol:

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?

Phly 06-22-2013 12:38 AM

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.
