Everyone knows how much elite athletes value an ice bath – it's an integral part of exercise recovery. So why and how do we apply these therapies to our equine athlete?
12 POCKET ICE BOOT – fits 15 hh + horses, designed to cover from the coronary band to just over the knee, and around the entire circumference of the leg. Sold as a Pair.
Plush adhesive neoprene – in 5mm thickness with plush outer fabric, to provide a secure and fully adjustable fastening for velcro straps.
Heavy duty velcro straps with elastic inserts – Marine quality, UV resistant and with rot-proof stitching. The ice boot straps also come with an elastic which stretches when the boot is full of fresh ice, and then contracts as the ice melts, so as to hold the boot in place firmly. This allows the boot to be left on the horse safely without supervision, saving you time and leaving your horse to rest and recover.
Elastic pockets – the pockets stretch to hold the fresh ice, and as the ice melts, they shrink with it to keep the ice in contact with the skin. The elastic is permeable to the moisture and cold temperature of the ice.
