Equine First Aid Kit

I have a very basic and simple first aid kit for my horses. There are many places where you can find lists of things to include in your kit. Many are all inclusive. This list is short and sweet!

I bought an electrical bag with lots of pockets from Home Depot to hold all my first aid kit items. This makes it easy to grab and go when I’m traveling with my horses.

I filled my bag with:

My First Aid Kit
My First Aid Kit
My First Aid Kit Essential Oils

Diapers make a great wrap for those difficult spots – hocks & knees. I like to use white towels so I can see the dirt and/or blood that may be on an injury and then bleach them clean but rags work just as well. Vet wrap is obvious… As is Hydrogen Peroxide! I use the Saline solution as a wash for injuries and for eyes. Witch Hazel is wonderful for skin ailments. Mineral Oil and coconut are for tummy aches and to lubricate syringes. Syringes can be used as enemas or for giving medication orally. I like the roll on fly repellent and the swat because you can apply them right around the injury without getting them IN the injury. My little spray bottle is great for applying essential oils to the injury, inside the mouth or around the eyes.

Tell me something that’s in your kit that I don’t have by commenting below… It may be something I need to add!!


    1. LOL! This is a BIG bag. It’s very heavy when it’s full but it’s for taking on trips and I keep it in the horse trailer. I wouldn’t want to haul this thing around for very long 🙂
