 How prepared are you should your horse need medical attention and first aid? Be sure to always have an equine specific first aid kit on hand in your stable, and in your saddlebags when out for a trail ride.

You should also be aware of your horses vital signs, so you know what is normal and what could potentially be a sign of illness.
