Many sport horses can benefit from protectors that promote the recovery of specific areas in the leg. There are numerous different products on the market that stimulate the prevention and healing of injuries, utilizing various materials and techniques. For instance, many protectors make use of wool. The magic in unwashed wool lies in the lanolin oil naturally present in sheep's wool. Lanolin offers many health benefits and is used in various skin products. The lanolin in our Woolpad helps with various skin issues, swollen legs, and aids in recovery after intense training, thus preventing injuries. The wool keeps the skin dry, is breathable, and also has mild antimicrobial properties.
In top-level sports, sock-shaped bandages are widely used and can be utilized in many ways. They can be used under regular, hard tendon boots to prevent chafing and friction. Additionally, they can be used to cool your horse's legs. After putting on the sock, you can place a cooling element and fold the sock back. To enhance the effect, there is also the option of dampening the sock.
To cool your horse's legs, various other leg bandages are available. Cooling wraps contain cooling elements in the bandage, ensuring that the horse's legs stay cool for an extended period. These wraps can be fastened with a Velcro closure or wrapped under a bandage.
To promote blood circulation in your horse's legs and stimulate recovery, you can make use of therapeutic stable and transport leg protectors with magnet therapy. The magnetic field stimulates blood circulation and accelerates the removal of waste products.
