None of us wants anything bad to happen when we're with our horses, and all the more so when we're on the road. But rather than (1) constantly transferring emergency supplies from barn to trailer and back again, or (2) counting on luck and going out unprepared, try a third option: EquiMedic USA's Large Trailering First Aid Kit. Designed to be kept in your trailer, the soft-sided kit is made to offer sufficient supplies for four to ten horses, organized in a variety of pockets, zippered sections, and loops. It features 59 different products that allow you to address the first-aid needs of humans and horses alike, and includes items ranging from cold packs and syringes to iodine wipes and insect repellent. EquiMedic also offers a smaller trailering kit sufficient for one to three horses.
Cost: $260 (large kit); $130 (small kit).
