Best First Aid Kits for Horse and Rider

first aid kit from Horseware Ireland

Every yard should have a well-stocked first aid kit for the horse and rider that is kept in a clean, dry and secure cupboard. Here, we take a look at first aid kits for both horse and human. We recommend more than one kit for each, so items are stored separately for hygiene and ease of reach.

How many times have you reached for a first aid kit down the yard without one to be seen? It’s not only necessary to have items you need in an emergency for a horse stocking up on items for yourself and other ‘yard goers’ is just as important. Here are a selection of the best first0-aid kits for horse and rider.
