I have just bought my first trailer and hope to do some local competitions/sj/hunter trials etc.

Just trying to put together a permanent horse first aid kit to leave in the trailer - so I need ideas of everything I should include.

What do you all have as standard in your first aid kits?

Thanks

In view of this morning's little incident, I too would be interested to know what people consider to be the basics for an equine first aid kit. That way I can bat my eyelashes at Javier and (when he's recovered from the shock) hopefully relieve him of some of the required items!!
