The physio recommended that Vallu would more than likely benefit from some sort of magnetic/ceramic rug for him to wear to help his back - especially during the winter. All of our horses use Back on Track products, Vallu has the leg wraps for both front and back legs as do Rama and Basse back home. Rama also has this rug and as mum thinks it's very useful and effective on him, so we thought Vallu could be benefit from it too.
The Back on Track products work because "the textile is a synergy of ancient Chinese experience and modern scientific textile technology. During the manufacturing of polyester- or polyester fibres, the ceramic particles are fused into the fibres. When heated, the ceramic particles radiate a heat back towards the body. This reflected heat is long-wave heat radiation, which is also known as long wave infrared radiation." It fits him really well, and I was pleasantly surprised by this as Vallu is a difficult horse to find rugs that fit him well because of his broad shoulders and big wide neck.
And he only had the rug on for about 45 minutes before riding but he must have felt super well because when I turned him out in the paddock after riding he ran around and pulled a shoe off... Sigh, after the physio and the dentists and he still wants days off! I think he thinks he should be on holiday or retired! ♥︎
|So well trained, it just stood there for 10 minutes and didn't move :D|
