Equilibrium® Magnetic Boots are designed to fit from coronet band and extend to below the knee. The ergonomic shape combined with the soft inner lining ensure a comfortable fit for your horse which is extremely important as the chaps are designed to be left on overnight and/or for substantial periods of time.
Four magnets are supplied with each pair of boots. They are designed to be thin and flat, yet extremely flexible, which 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 Equilibrium Magnetic Chaps?
Magnets have been used on both horses and humans for many, many years. Magnetic fields have been seen to sustain good blood flow and could therefore help to optimise leg health. Supporting leg health benefits joint mobility and function, and also helps to maintain strong tendons.
When should Magnetic Boots be used for horses?
- Every day 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.
Which magnets are used in the Equilibrium Chaps and how do they work?
The body’s cells have electromagnetic properties which means they can be energised by a magnetic field. Equilibrium 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, linear and permanent magnetic fields of alternating pole sequences penetrate into the body tissue.
