About Cryochaps Ice Boots for Horses
Cryochaps are innovative horse leg wraps designed to ice the legs post-workout in order to prevent injury. By capturing the power of ice bath therapy in a simple and effective leg wrap, our ice boots provide the ideal post-workout cool-down. Highly portable, Cryochaps are great for at the yard, competitions or clinics.
Equine injuries to the lower limbs, both front and hind, are a common occurrence in this day and age. Horses are designed to be super quick and supple, balancing 500kg of bone and muscle on four legs. Humans have selectively bred the horse to become more agile, more expressive, more powerful, faster and stronger. However, their limbs do not always cope, and as any owner will know, injuries are commonplace. Due to increased knowledge in the veterinary world, as well as better diagnostic technology, ligament and tendon injuries can now be diagnosed much more often. Furthermore, diagnosis will then lead to the time consuming rehabilitation that accompanies it.
By harnessing the preventative and healing benefits of ice bath therapy, we have created an equine ice boot that could be effective at preventing injury as well as encouraging healing. With our ice boots for horses, there is no need to stand around with the hose, soaking the entire yard as you try to cool their legs down!
