As we’re sure every horse owner is well aware, horses are extremely fragile creatures and absolutely love to injure themselves at every given opportunity!

As we’re sure every horse owner is well aware, horses are extremely fragile creatures and absolutely love to injure themselves at every given opportunity! We get all sorts of people coming into store; from happy hackers, to top level competition riders, to hunting people. Almost all of the people who walk through out door will have had a woeful injury story to tell us at some point; including our very own staff!

One of the most common things we hear about in store are tendon and ligament injuries. Horses’ legs are so delicate and we can put them under a lot of strain with the work we ask them to do.

There can be all sorts of reasons that a horse will pick up a tendon injury, and it goes without saying that you should always seek assistance/advice from your vet for this type of issue. However, there are things you can do to help to prevent serious injury occurring in the first place. We feel that the utmost care should be taken of your horse’s legs, no matter what kind of work you’re are asking them to do.

Here at Equitogs, one of our extremely popular products is the ICE-VIBE boots from Horseware Ireland. They are a therapy boot which combines cooling and massage features to help prevent injury to horse’s legs and can also be used, in conjunction with veterinary input, to aid recovery from ligament or tendon injuries.

The boots come with two cold packs, which help to reduce inflammation and swelling in the legs; and also feature movable, vibrating panels which help to promote circulation and healing. The blood supply to your horse’s tendons is limited, compared to other areas of the body and cooling their legs too quickly can inhibit the circulation further, which can cause an inflammatory response, and cause more damage in the long term. The cooling and massaging features of the ICE-VIBE boots combined, will cool your horse’s legs steadily whilst still promoting circulation. These boots are great for regular use on competition horses, hunters or those who suffer with puffy legs; and they are especially useful during injury rehab and box rest.
