Hi - I'm at a new stables and I think i need to get myself my own first aid kit for the horse as I dont see one around. So... I see there are kits online but they look like you get very little for your money.

What do you suggest for a minimum that should be in the kit?
what are essential and what are things that are still a good idea to get.. thanks!

thanks everyone for replies. I think we will make our own box up for now using that list and anything else we hear about :)
