EquiFit Tendon GelCompression Boot
They are easy to use and of good quality. Ice compression reduces the need for cold hosing and standing wraps.

Worth the money
Have tried a few different ice recovery products. Am very pleased with the ease of use and the overall results achieved.

Excellent Cold Therapy Product
I bought this product for my mare when she developed a leg ligament injury. I love the fact it provides both cold therapy and compression, two of the components for treatment of inflammation. With the many closures, it stays in place extremely well and covers the full lower leg. 2 pumps are provided though they could have only provided one, and there is a slight twisting lock when you connect to ensure you get the pressure in the boot. There is clearly a left and a right leg, and the ice pack maintains flexibility even when frozen. I use one every day for over a month now and it still looks like new except for the small hay flecks that adhere to the exterior fabric. Once my mare is back in full work, I will be using both on her front legs every time we work they are so easy to use and durable. My mare is used to having her legs wrapped and she is totally unconcerned with these on her leg.

Excellent Product for Cold Therapy
My horse recently had a leg injury and I was using another product that was good, but I was intrigued by the ability to add compression to the cold therapy and the fact the gel product would be less stiff when frozen. While these boots are significantly more expensive that what I had been using, I think they are a good investment. The materials seem sturdy and the boot fits the horse's leg very well. They even give some spares of the connector and two complete bulbs with hosing when one could have been enough. Each boot is designed to fit a right or left front leg. And the ability to add compression to the cold really does seem to make a difference in overall effect, appearing to speed the healing. I am using the one boot for an injury now, but I will use both after work on the front legs once the horse is back in work. Seems ideal for maintenance of an older horse who is still jumping.

I was going to get a pair of whirlpool boots, but decided to give these a try. I like them because they compress everything together, my gelding bowed his tendon and after one week using these everyday you can’t really even see the bow anymore. Makes a great addition to the standard bow treatment and we are using them on the other horses in training as well as a preventive measure.

Easy to use and set up. Like that packs stay cold for two hours so can use on both horses if need be before refreezing again.
