Looking for a rug that can also promote your horse's wellbeing? Check out these two, currently available on the Horseware website.
Rambo Ionic stable sheet
The inner fabric of the Rambo Ionic Stable sheet is printed with a powdered form of tourmaline.
This naturally occurring crystal releases negative ions, which in turn work to strengthen, stimulate and support a horse’s circulatory and endocrine system, increasing blood flow to the brain, muscles and other key parts of the body.
Negative ion therapy not only increases the level of oxygen in the muscles, but also helps to clear toxins from the body.
Rambo Ionic technology also restores the pH balance, reduces blood pressure and helps to remove toxins from the body.
The fabric of the blanket is highly wicking and durable, so it can be used while travelling and in the stable as well as before and after exercise to promote the wellbeing of the horse.
Available in sizes: 3’9-7’3 and priced at £135.95-£163.95.*
Sportz-Vibe ZX rug
Designed and created by the team who brought you Ice Vibe, Sportz-Vibe ZX is a massage therapy rug for horses.
Comfortable, lightweight and portable, this rug is ideal as a warm-up or recovery rug as it helps to warm up muscles before work and ease soreness and stiffness afterwards.
Using the latest wireless technology, it allows for a single remote to wirelessly control the integrated massage panels.
Using Sportz-Vibe ZX before exercise can help reduce the risk of injury as increasing blood flow to muscles, tendons and ligaments helps to make them more elastic.
It can also help manage every day wear and tear, and help your horse to recover more quickly after hard work.
Sportz-Vibe’s massage action is gentle enough that it won’t over-work your horses’ muscles, but will effectively reduce muscle tension and the removable massage panels mean you can target a specific area.
Massage therapy is one of the oldest known methods of therapy, and is renowned for its ability to promote healing.
Massage can help to reduce pain, improve blood supply to tissue, and reduce inflammation in horses that are suffering from long-term muscular back problems.
By encouraging the lymph system to move, massage helps to drain inflammation and stimulate repair to damaged tissue.
Available in sizes 5’3-7’3 and priced at £561.95.*
