It doesn’t matter if you have one horse or an entire barn, every owner needs a first aid kit! It’s all about being prepared in the event of an emergency. No one wants to be caught off guard and unable to help their horse. They’re also good for treating rider injuries!

Must Have First Aid Kit Items

Join University of Minnesota Equine Extension Program as they discuss items that should be in every horse owner’s first aid box.

Riders can also find kits to purchase with everything in them already. You can find a basic one like this SmartPak kit for under $90. You may need to add a few supplies to really complete it though.
