5 Things You Didn’t Know About Magnets for Horses
Whether you believe in magnets or not, there is something mysterious about the effect it can have on the body. And while cold, hard scientific proof is difficult to find, we do know some truths and have definitely witnessed some positive results when it comes to keeping horses legs and backs in top condition.
Here are 5 things you might not have known about Magnets.
1) They are suitable for all horses.
Magnets can be used on all horses and ponies to maintain healthy muscles, joints, tendons and ligaments.
It’s great to help horses that are working hard, feel the cold, or maybe those who are being brought back into work and are recruiting muscles that haven’t been used for a while.
2) Let them do their work overnight.
Using magnets doesn’t have to cause an inconvenience to your routine or require extra time. While some other products can only be used for a limited amount of time, our Magnetic Range is designed to fit into your schedule – so you can leave them on overnight and use them everyday.
In an ideal world, magnets should be used for at least 4 hours if possible – making an overnight solution super convenient, especially when we all know time can be short on the yard, particularly during winter!
3) Neodynium, Ceramic, Rubber – not all magnets are the same.
There are lots of different types of magnets made up of various components, and the type of magnet can also determine the strength. You can be blinded by science but apart from strength, there are a few other things to consider – such as weight, flexibility, how they are being applied, and as they have a local or targeted effect, are the magnets where you need them to be? Our Magnetic Range use unique magnets which can be moved to exactly where YOU need them.
4) Just because a magnet sticks to metal doesn’t mean it will produce an effect.
Every magnet will have a gauss surface strength. This is what makes it stick to a metal surface, ie. a fridge magnet sticking to a fridge. It is important to understand however, that this surface measurement is not necessarily representative of its effect on your horse. Find out more about how magnetic therapy works.
5) Magnets don’t wear out.
Magnets used in most magnetic products are called Static Magnets – where they have been ‘charged’ and then hold that charge for the remainder of their days. This means their magnetic field will remain constant and the results should not diminish over time, with proper care of course!
Overall, magnets have been seen to have positive effects in horses for both maintaining health and performance. And while there are different types of magnets, choosing one to fit into your routine, that’s comfortable for your horse to wear and above all, effective!
