As riders, we would never dream of jumping on our horses and shooting straight off into canter. A gentle warm up stimulates blood flow to the horses’ muscles, tendons, and ligaments, so increasing their elasticity and ability to perform. We take the time to ease into the faster work. It just makes sense.
How many of us put equal effort into a cool down regimen, stretching off tired muscles and cooling down overly hot tendons? The forces created during exercise can cause tiny tears in the tissues and temperatures in tendons can rise to damaging levels. Using Cryochaps to cool your horse’s legs after exercise could reduce swelling, minimise tissue breakdown and kick starts the healing process.
Warm up slowly and cool off with Cryochaps to help keep your horse in action.
