Every horse owner knows that ailments, aches and pains are commonplace when dealing with animals – particularly horses! Whether your horse is injured, is feeling the changes of elderly life or simply needs a bit of support when competing, a set of therapy boots is a handy piece of kit to have in your tack box.
There are numerous kind of therapy boots for horses, from top equestrian brands such as LeMieux, Horseware and Woof Wear. At Chelford Farm Supplies, we’re thrilled to stock a large selection of horse boots which provide various benefits to help your four-legged friend feeling his best.
Ice boots for horses are a fantastic way to keep legs cool, aid recovery after strenuous work and also enable healing when injury or swelling may be present. Horseware Ice-Vibe Boots are the pinnacle of equestrian cooling technology; not only do Ice Vibes utilise cooling properties, but they also use massage therapy too. A set of Ice Vibe boots are a must-have for any keen eventer, as they will cool your horse’s legs down after cross country while stimulating blood flow to aid recovery.
Cold water boots are another great way to cool your horse’s legs down, without the need to freeze and then carry around ice packs with you. Cold water boots are incredibly easy to use – simply soak your boot in a bucket of water until fully absorbed, and then firmly place on your horse’s leg. As the boot dries and the liquid stimulates the boot’s reactive crystals, the horse’s leg is cooled. A very handy pair of horse boots to have on the go!
Magnetic boots for horses are another popular choice – magnotherapy is a tried and tested course of action for helping blood supply reach your horse’s tendons and joints as well as supply oxygen to tissues. Magnetic horse boots can be routinely used on a daily basis, or for ad-hoc use if your horse is feeling a little stiff.
