COOLING WRAPS - REASON FOR USE
Cold therapies reduce pain, inflammation and the heat associated with inflammation.
The wraps worn while racing or training can cause tendons to retain heat and should be removed when a horse is cooling out.
Cooling warm legs after exercise is an important part of injury prevention.

Ice boots for horses to treat an injury
If you’re using cold therapy to treat an acute injury, it can be used three to four times a day for a maximum for 40 minutes at a time.
Ice is best used on acute injuries within the first two days of the injury happening.
Catching an injury early and using ice boots can help reduce the severity and thus improve the healing chances of a soft-tissue injury.
Ice boots for horses as a maintenance tool
Using ice boots for maintenance post-exercise is a routine many horse owners swear by. Following a hard schooling session, a round of cross country or trip up the gallops putting ice boots on your horse can help the ligaments and tendons recover quickly.
Again, a maximum time of 40 minutes is recommended and if the ice boots are part of a maintenance routine, wearing them once a day post-exercise is sufficient.
Veterinarians and equine professionals have varying views on how best to use ice boots and cold therapy.
We do recommend speaking to your vet or equine professional on their next visit if you’d like more advice on how ice boots could fit into your horse’s routine and benefit their limb health.
