Hello!!
With us going to shows more often i have thought about having a smaller first aid in the car and for shows. Though i arent really sure what to include.

Vetwrap
Gamgee
Wound cream of your choice
A large bottle of clean tap water
Scissors

All the above can be used on humans too.

In addition for people maybe some plasters and antihistamine tablets.

My travelling kit would be:
Afterbite pen (for me)
Sudocrem (small tube)(also could be for me)
Vet wrap
Scissors
Bottle of water
Leg cooling gel (I always have a bottle of this in the tack room as it's better than nothing if I suspect a tendon issue and need cooling pronto and have no ice boots chilled)
Small clean microfibre cloths (ideal for patting dry a wound before you dress it or want to bandage, and they don't tend to deposit any fluffs into a wound either)

I am sure there are more useful things - I guess some human plasters wouldn't go amiss either.

I have the above, plus bute, antiseptic wipes, a small lick-it bar in case I need to bribe someone into treatment or drinking, electrolytes, cotton wool, treatment gloves, hibi, stethoscope and thermometer (from the days when I was regularly away for more than 1 night and it's just stayed in there)
