Horses will get a number of cuts and grazes on a regular basis so most horse riders will know the basics of horse first aid. Your horse will usually sustain a number of smaller cuts and grazes, which is not major enough to require anything further than basic first aid. It is for this reason that all horse riders should have their own first aid kit for horses and any necessary supplies. When you come across grazes on your horse, it is best to wash the skin with some cold water and then add some wound healing cream to speed up to recovery process; try to avoid putting any medical dressing on as grazes tend to heal better and faster when they are open. Deeper lacerations are better dealt with by flushing the wound with saline or cold clean water and call the vet as the horse may require some level of stitching. When it comes to various swellings and strains the best course of action is to pressure bandage using dressing from the horse first aid kit and box resting the horse until the swelling passes. If you are ever concerned about any injury, get in touch with your vet.
