When should I use the Equilibrium Therapy Massage Pad?
The Equilibrium Therapy Massage Pad can be used for a variety of reasons, improving performance and helping to alleviate soreness or health issues. It's ideal to use for:
- Horses on box rest to improve blood flow and circulation
- Before exercise to warm up the back muscles prior to being ridden
- After exercise to help with the removal of built-up toxins
- On your horse's day off as part of a maintenance program
- At a show to help the horse recover from travelling
- To help alleviate back problems, including stiffness and discomfort
- To encourage relaxation
How does the Equilibrium Therapy Massage Pad work?
The Equilibrium Therapy Massage Pad has three different settings - high, medium and low - which can be easily selected from the attached controller. This allows you to select the intensity of the program to best suit your horse. Each program has three types of massage to ensure all muscles are worked in different ways: pulsing, vibration and stroking. The sessions will last for 30 minutes but can be stopped manually at any time.
The medium setting is ideal for warming up your horse's back muscles prior to work; the low setting can then be used to cool down your horse and aid recovery afterwards. The high setting helps to alleviate back problems when your horse requires a more intense massage.
The Equilibrium Therapy Massage Pad is the choice of many top riders, including Olympians and World Champions.
What are the benefits of massage?
We know ourselves that massage can make us feel relaxed and help to ease tension. Massage therapy in horses has been shown to help reduce tension too. Tension is one of the most common reasons for poor performance and can cause soreness and stiffness. By increasing relaxation and improving back flexibility, the negative effects of tension can be reduced. Relaxation is essential for improving flexibility and movement, especially for competition and performance horses performing complex dressage movements or jumping technical fences. Clinical trials of this massage pad also concluded that other significant benefits can be seen in various horses, including an increase in stride length and the treatment of chronic back pain and sensitivity.

Le Mieux ProCool Cold Water Boot
The Le Mieuc ProCool Cold Water Boot is a simple and convenient method of cooling the legs following exertion, whether cross country, hunting, other strenuous work or following an injury. These boots are designed with unique water reactive crystals inside which swell and retain cold when soaked in water. Their contoured shape supports the fetlock and tendon for effective results and also helps to prevent the boot from slipping.
Available in Small, Medium or Large - please see the size guide.
Soak these ProCool Cold Water Boots for 2 - 4 hours prior to first use or after long periods of dry storage. Some residue may appear on the surface of the boot - this is not harmful and can enhance the cooling effect.
Soak in cold water for 1hr+ prior to use (out of sunlight); add ice to the water when available - the colder the water, the better the effect. These boots can be refridgerated when wet but NEVER frozen.
The best theraputic effect is gained after multiple 20 - 30min sessions; re-soak for 2 - 3 hours after long periods of inactivity.
For best application, tighten the velcro straps firmly, starting at the top, then readjust once in position.
Let the boots dry out thoroughly prior to storage.Learn More
Le Mieux ProIce Freeze Boots
The Le Mieux ProIce Freeze Boots provide targeted and effective cooling therapy directly to tendons and joints. The foil lining insulates and prolongs the ice cold effect, while the soft mesh lining fully protects the skin from freeze burn and allows for maximum transfer of cold treatment around the entire leg. These ProIce Freeze Boots contain unique Hypo-Freeze Gel which remains soft and pliable, contouring around the lower limb to ensure maximum surface contact with the tendons and joints. This gel eliminates any messy melting ice and wet legs while full contact with the leg ensures the best possible recovery.
The regular use of Le Mieux ProIce Freeze Boots for short periods (20 - 30mins) can prevent the onset of localised swelling and heat after intense exercise. This ice cold therapy ensures ligaments, tendons and joints remain tight. The earlier temperature of tendons can be reduced after exercise the better - the purpose of using cold is to break the cycle of inflammatory response before it causes cell damage.
Place ProIce Freeze Boots in the freezer for a minimum of four to six hours, or overnight prior to application. It's recommended that the boots are used in short 20 - 30min sessions / multiple times daily in severe cases. Press these boots securely around the leg to mould the gel and ensure the straps are firmly closed but not over-tight.
Available in Medium or Large.
Sold as a pair.Learn More

Woof Wear Medical Hoof Boot
The best-selling Woof Wear Medical Hoof Boot is a unique, close fitting hoof boot designed to keep wounds, poultices and dressings clean. This horse poultice boot is suitable for use in the stable and can be used on sensible horses during turnout onto a dry paddock. The boot is designed using flexible and light materials to enable easy fitting and is a cost-effective and time-saving alternative to adhesive bandage and tape.
Featuring a grooved sole for extra grip and a Kevlar® interior for durability, the Woof Wear Medical Hoof Boot also has an asymmetric zip to give the boot a really close fit (and prevent it opening), stopping bedding and other debris from getting inside. It can assist in a number of ailments to the foot such as abscesses, punctured sole or bruised sole. This hoof boot is suitable for use with or without a shoe.
The Woof Wear Medical Hoof Boot is available in 10 different sizes based on shoe size - please see the size guide to ensure the best possible fit.
We expect the boot to last 2-3 weeks under normal circumstances with many customers finding they last much longer. The boot is not indestructible and so is not guaranteed against breakage, due to the horse standing on the boot.
This hoof boot is NOT suitable for riding.

To get the best out of your Medical Hoof Boot:
Do not use the Medical Hoof Boot (MHB) in place of an overreach boot to prevent shoe loss. The MHB is not designed for this application and will not protect against overreaching. We recommend always using a generous sized overreach boot over the top of MHB to protect it should your horse stand on himself or overreach. We recommend this on both front and hind hooves
2. Measure, Measure, Measure…
The MHB is designed to be a snug fit so it doesn’t fall off. If you do not measure accurately or buy a size too big it can result in damage to the MHB due to the boot being trodden on by the other foot.
i) Measure width carefully before bandaging, with or without shoe
ii) Choose size per guide (don’t go to next size up)
iii) No need to add extra for dressings Fitting The Woof Wear Medical Hoof boot has been designed to fit closely around the hoof and be a stretch fit around the pastern. If this is achieved, the boot will not fall off and is less likely to be trodden on with the other foot.
Use the size guide (click 'Sizing' on the tabs above) to ensure you have the closest fit for your horse or pony.
Note - If your horse has specialist or remedial shoes, or large shoes such as Eggbars or Heartbars, you may need to go up a size to accommodate these. We recommend working with your farrier to ensure you get the most applicable size for your horse. If it is your intention to use on both front, or hind feet, and your horse is particularly ‘active’ or a bit close in his action, the risk of standing on the boot with the opposite foot is higher due to the decreased distance between the two feet. In this case you can use an overreach boot over the top of the Medical Hoof Boot to protect it.
1. If your horse requires a poultice, put it on the affected area in the normal way and secure it in place with some adhesive bandage. You will not need to use additional materials to keep it in the place as the hoof boot will do this.
2. Undo the zip fully and open the boot up as much as possible.
3. Lift up the horse’s foot and pull the boot up and over the front of the hoof. Use the ‘V’ shaped indent (in the moulded part of the boot at the front) as a guide to where the middle of the boot is.
4. Once you have pulled the boot onto the foot, let the horse put his foot down as this will help push the foot further into the boot.
5. Ensure the boot is fitted centrally on the foot – you may find it easier to pick the foot back up and check that the moulded sole is straight and not crooked. If it appears crooked undo the zip, pick up the foot and gently swivel the boot around the foot until you are satisfied it is straight. The ‘V’ indent will help guide you with this.
6. Check that the edge of the foot reaches the side of the boot and the bulbs of the heels are also encased within the moulded area, and not overhanging it.
7. When happy with the fit, pull the zip up ensuring it is covered by the neoprene zip cover
8. The stretch neoprene upper should fit snugly around the pastern area to ensure no bedding or mud etc can get inside the boot. If the upper is too tight, it is unlikely you will be able to do the zip up fully and this will be an indication that you have the incorrect size.
9. If turning the horse out, ensure he is happy with the feel of the boot first. In the unlikely event the horse is nervous of the boot, walk him gently around his stable so that he can get used to it. They will soon realise it is comfortable and will not impede movement.
