As riders and online shoppers, we know it can be tough to buy a new bridle or pair of boots without trying them on. That's why we moved the fitting room to your living room (or barn)! From breeches to blankets, if you or your horse can try it on, you can return it, free! Just use the pre-paid return label included in your order within 60 days from the purchase date. And of course, please make sure the item is in like-new condition with original packaging (we said 'fitting room', not 'war room'!).

Pol-Cat Poultice is rated 4.884615384615385 out of 5 by 26.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Pol Cat has been around a long time. Have been using it for many years, many at the racetrack use it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works Great I use a poultice on my horse after shows and recently ran out. I didn't want to get a large tub of something in fear that it would dry out if stored. I thought this was the right size for the right price. I sure am glad I got it! Has a little bit of menthol smell, not overpowering, goes on smooth, easy to get off either by hosing or currying. My older horse's usually stocked up legs were perfectly normal size also after using this product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A+ Poultice Goes on easily, very smooth. Brushes off easily when dry. Reasonably priced and highly recommended!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect Poultice I love this poultice! It is as creamy as lotion, making it easy to apply, and when I put it on my horse's legs after a tough workout he sighed, breathed deeper, and licked his lips. I can tell it relaxed him and helped him bounce back from the workout while soothing his tendons. It's easily rinsed off when it's completely dried. An awesome poultice at an awesome price - yay!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Not Easy To Apply This poultice smells nice & works well, but I found it is hard & thick, making it difficult to apply.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works Great! It really helps with inflammation, the horses seem to really enjoy when we put it on there legs.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Everyone Should Have A Tub I was minutes away from calling the vet when my neighbor stopped over with her tub of Pol-Cat. My 19 year old mare had swollen rear legs from walking on a rough frozen pasture on newly trimmed feet. Two twice-daily applications of Pol-Cat on her legs and she was good as new. When I applied the first coat, she stopped eating and stood there with a look a of pure bliss on her face. Thankfully we got the snow we needed to cushion the pasture but from now on I will ALWAYS have a tub of Pol-Cat on hand!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great poultice This poultice is silky smooth and goes on very easily. When dry you can easily brush it off with a soft rubber curry. It smells great too. I also love the Sore No More poultice but I think this goes on a little smoother yet because it seems a bit more wet than SNM.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from AWESOME! I have used this poultice for 3 years and I dont think I will ever buy anything else! Cleans off great with water, or dry with a rubber curry. Keeps my reiner cool and tight. Great preventative as well as great at reducing swelling when there is an issue. A little goes a long way and its easy to apply.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great I love this poultice. The only thing I will say is that this poultice does have to be wrapped with paper bags. It does not quick dry to leave on without wraps. It is nice though with the medicated clay. I use it to wrap after heavy jumping or cross-country days.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Pol-Cat worked as well as Up-Tite I have always used a brand called Up-Tite and in a pinch, ordered Pol-Cat and hoped it would work just as well. It had a similar appearance, but I actually found the Pol-Cat poultice easier/smoother to apply. Best of all, my horses' legs looked great the next morning. It does create a large amount of fine dust when you brush it off, so you might not want to do that in an enclosed area.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My Go-To Poultice Product This is my favorite poultice brand and the one that I always buy. I would recommend it to anyone looking for a nice basic clay poultice that is OK with or without wraps.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best poultice i've used. With 5 horses in different disciplines (an open hunter, a level 7 jumper, an pre-lim eventer, a level 2/3 dressage horse and an equitation partner) and a total of 10 hard lessons a week i'm always poulticing somebody!!! my dressage horse is a 13 y/o qh and he is lovely at it. he strained a tendon this past september and pol cat was his best friend. i poulticed him every day for about 2 months. the 10lb bucket lasted all that time and never did i sit and scrub it off or un-wrap to a "dry" leg. i now poultice him every few days or so after a work out just to help keep his legs nice and tight. it does well and ::knocks on wood:: has prevented any swelling etc. With my horses averaging 4ft and high level lateral work they can use the extra help and pol cat is that little extra.thanks pol cat!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from It's what your looking for I like it for my horses because you can use it without banages if you want and you can use on the bottom of the hoof too.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great I Pol-Cat Poultice after my weekly lessons and at shows, since my horse and I jump in the big classes. It goes on smooth, stays wet longer, and you can feel it working as you apply it. Pol-Cat does a fantastic job keeping his legs tight and pain-free. Plus it smells good too and lasts a long time!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nothing Better Than This There is truly no better poultice that lasts longer, stays cool and wet, and makes horses' legs incredibly smooth and tight. No hunter or jumper rider should be without this product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy on, easy off! When my vet recommended I poultice my mare's legs to help treat a case of lymphangitis, I had visions of me, my horse, and my barn aisle covered in poultice. Other brands I've used in the past were messy and just seemed to get everywhere. Not so with PolCat! It is very smooth and easy to apply, yet it is thick enough that it stays were you put it. PolCat is also surprisingly easy to remove, even without water. Just let it dry and brush it right off! This product really helped with the inflammation in my mare's legs, and the 10 lb bucket lasted through a full week of daily poulticing with lots to spare. A great product at a great value!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Thumbs up I bought a tub of this when I ran out of my usual poultice and I was hooked. When my horses jump the big classes, several times a week, I need something to help keep their legs cool and tight. And I found it!
