Take a closer look at the Magnetic Hock Boots for horses.
The unique design of the Magnetic Hock Boots not only allows you to put magnets anywhere from the coronet band up to and including the hock joint, but also ensures that your horse can comfortably wear them overnight without fear of them slipping down the leg.
The ergonomic shape combined with the soft inner lining ensure a comfortable fit for your horse. This is extremely important as the boots are designed to be left on overnight and/or for substantial periods of time.
Four Vitaflex® Magnets are supplied with each pair of boots. They are reasonably thin and flat, yet extremely flexible. This allows them to mould to the horses’ legs, should they need to be placed over a joint. Supplied in a small pouch, they can be placed anywhere within the magnetic boot lining with the simple hook and loop attachment. This allows you to target the magnets exactly where your horse needs them.
Why use Magnetic Hock Boots?
Magnets have been used on both horses and humans for many, many years. Magnetic fields have been seen to sustain good blood flow and can therefore help to optimise leg health. Supporting leg health benefits joint mobility and function, and also helps to maintain strong tendons.
When should Magnetic Hock Boots be used for horses?
- Every day as part of your horses’ daily routine for maintaining leg health. Usually overnight or in the day when stood in.
- For horses in work from hacking to competition. This includes horses returning to work or retraining.
- For older horses or those who are slow to warm up.
- Horses on box rest, standing in for long periods of time or on limited turnout.
- General knocks and bumps.
Why does Equilibrium Products use Vitaflex® magnets and how do they work?
The body’s cells have electromagnetic properties which means they can be energised by a magnetic field. Vitaflex® magnets present two alternating poles to the body, negative and positive, making them different to standard Neodymium magnets, which present only one pole. These strong, circular and permanent magnetic fields of alternating pole sequences penetrate into the body tissue.
