LEARN ABOUT WHY REDMOND BENTONITE CLAY HEALS
Bentonite, also known as montmorillonite, is an age-old healing clay with incredibly diverse curative properties. Some call it Mother Nature’s pharmacy. We call it the “clay of a thousand uses.” Redmond bentonite in particular excels at healing sores, rope burns, cuts, and bites on horses.

“Absolutely love this stuﬀ! Had a wound on my mare that nothing would heal. I tried everything from Neosporin, SWAT, Vetericyn, Bag Balm, and a few others I had at the barn. They did nothing or made it worse! Put on First Aid, and like magic the first day it started finally healing up. Now 3 days later it's almost gone! Doesn't hurt or sting. My mare after just two uses, quit trying to avoid her treatment. Keeps bugs oﬀ and really does work! New favorite product!”AARON JONES, AMAZON CUSTOMER
“Simply the best first aid for horses out there. Redmond Equine, in my opinion, makes absolutely the best horse products, period. My neighbor was at a horse show where the arena sand wore sores on the bulbs of her horse’s heels. She slathered this product on them, it dried and created a protective barrier. She had no more issues with her horse’s heels becoming raw. Superior product.”KIM LANDFATHER, AMAZON CUSTOMER
“Amazing healing product! All-natural, just clay and water. Working magically for all cuts, sores, etc.”MARINA M., AMAZON CUSTOMER
“This is a great product for horses. It heals wounds quickly and keeps flies oﬀ the area. I would highly recommend this product for all horse owners’ medical kits.”TONI, AMAZON CUSTOMER
“There is nothing better for putting on an open wound and keeping flies and other flying beasties oﬀ the wound—and it stays in place without sweating oﬀ.”J. PETSCH, AMAZON CUSTOMER
Recently, my young horse Eddie got in a scuffle and ended up with a small cut over his eye. [Redmond] clay was the perfect answer since I didn’t want to use any chemicals and risk it getting in his eye. The clay dried up and stayed in place for several days, forming a protective layer to keep out insects and debris, almost like a bandage. Now it looks great—like it never even happened”JULIE GOODNIGHT
FIRST AID FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
I have used this product on my mare. When she lays down and gets up ,she sometimes cuts the front part of her pastern. I wash off the areas, dry them and then apply. I know the cut is protected and able to heal with out infection and keep the flys out !
I use this on my gelding whose sheath area gets attacked by flies. I use it to treat any bites he gets as well as a coating all over the area to help repel them (it also seems to protect the area from the fly repellent, keeping it from irritating the skin).
Hi Alison, Thank you for sharing your success with First Aid for Horses. What a great idea to coat the area to repel flies and also protect from the fly repellent skin irritation! Redmond Rock with Garlic may also be helpful in keeping those pesky flies away. Here's to a fly free summer for your horse.
I purchased a 6 pack to use on a mini that has severe skin allergies from black flies…so far, we’ve been using for a week with no improvement, and it seems to take quite a bit of product to create a layer…To be fair, nothing has helped the skin…
Have not used this product yet but when it comes time to use it I can bet 100% it will work great just like the rest of the products I’ve used from Redmond equine!
I reach for the Redmond First Aid almost daily at my barn as it’s so universal. With all these flies due to the summer heat, my horse has really suffered from their nasty bites and his legs even developed a few non threatening bumps.
I applied some First Aid and let it sit on his legs for 4 days, and by the end of the 4 days, I wiped his leg clean with some water and a cloth and the bumps were gone!
It’s like the clay had dried them up, and it also helped a lot that it created a shield against the bugs.
Safe to say I use this on all his cuts, hair patches, bumps, fly bites and more! Love that it’s also in scented so it does not cause either parties irritations.
