Product Feature – First Aid Kit, Everything Horse Magazine

It’s happened before and chances are, it’ll happen again. How many times have you reached for a first aid kit down the yard and there’s not 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 we take a look at first aid kits available to horse and rider.

It’s advisable that every horse owner should have a well stocked first aid kit for their horse, but what exactly should be in it?

Here’s some essentials: Cotton wool, gauge, scissors, thermometer, anti-bacterial scrub, anti-bacterial cream, duct tape, poultice, gamgee, stable bandages, bandages for dressings, wound gel, wound wash, poultice dressing.

For the rider – from scrapes to falls, injuries down the stables can range from those that need an A&E dash, to a quick nick with only a little ‘tlc’ needed. 


Here’s some essentials: Plasters (variety of sizes), scissors, eye wash, latex gloves, roll of cotton wool, sterile gauze dressings, safety pins, bandages, tweezers, wound cleansers.

And don’t forget it get injured, no matter how small the accident, always remember to log it in the accident book!
