Equi-Ice is the simplest and most effective way to apply cold therapy to reduce inflammation, eliminate pain and promote faster recovery and healing post-exercise.
With no special inserts required you simply fill with ice and the sectioned design ensures measured melting and direct application to your horse’s core muscle groups.
Equi-Ice delivers the benefits of cold therapy to your horse immediately after exercise in a convenient, durable and re-useable ice pack.
Designed by Australia’s leading specialist equine physiotherapist, Tom Simpson, Equi-Ice is specifically created for the anatomy of the horse. It’s sectioned design ensures maximum coverage of direct ice application to your horse’s spine and back muscles. This even placement during icing results in a faster recovery for your horse post-exercise or injury.
During icing, each compartment is filled with ice and the ice pack is placed gently onto the horse’s back in the saddle area. Equi-Ice is not to be tied onto the horse.
After 15-20 minutes, the ice pack can be removed and the horse towel dried.
Equi-Ice is most effective when used immediately after strenuous exercise. You should be guided by your veterinarian or physiotherapist as to the recommended frequency of application. If your horse appears in pain or you are concerned about your horse’s back health, you should always consult your treating veterinarian for advice before using Equi-Ice.
