Essential Items for Your Barn First Aid Kit

image


It never fails, with four horses I always have some sort of scrape, scratch or bite mark to attend to on at least one of them if not more.  I have a fully stocked first aid kit in my tack room for minor injuries, and the Vet’s number handy.  I also have a human first aid kit too!

Here is a great article  from Southernstates.com and  a quick reference to compare your first aid kit in your barn.

“If you own a horse you know it’s not a question of if your horse will get injured or have a medical emergency, but rather when. As powerful and athletic as horses are, they are also surprisingly fragile. The best way to handle any emergency situation that may arise with your horse is to think like a scout and be prepared. A well-stocked barn medicine chest will let you immediately start treating your horse’s injury or illness, instead of running around the barn looking for items you need.”

I keep mine in a bright neon orange bag so it is easily recognized in the tack room or truck when we go traveling.

There are several sites that offer already prepared first aid kits if you don’t already have one or just want to have an extra fully equipped kit.
