Why is it useful to cool the lower legs of a horse with cold circulating water?

Whenever a horse has been moving and in this way has been making an effort, his tendons and joints of his lower legs have been carrying his weight. Metabolism products are formed and sometimes small tissue damage will occur.

What’s more, as mainly tendon tissue faces a bad blood flow, metabolism will not soon get dispatched and blood cells do not quickly reach such a tissue damage to repair the tissue. To stimulate and improve the blood flow of the lower leg of the horse, it is wise to cool the lower legs of the horse right after every training or contest.

The lower legs will cool down and extra blood gets attracted to warm up the legs again. During this process the tendons and joints take on their original condition. This treatment is used to prevent the legs of quickly ageing.

In fact, it is repairing and preventing therapy at the same time. Also for injuries a treatment from the Equine Legcooler is useful and highly recommended.

used for cooling horse legs of all horses as for rehabilitation
as for prevention.
