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'!).

Effol Horse Balm cools, relaxes and activates after stress. Has a refreshing and vitalizing effect on sore muscles as well as tension or stiffness. Effol Horse Balm is very kind to the coat and skin. Does not stick. Bandaging is not necessary. Contains: Arnica, Horse Chesnut extract, Menthol and Camphor. 500 ml (16.9 oz).

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Miracle in a jar! This past October, I was competing at a very large scale show with my quarter horse. After taking him back to the barn after our class he began to become very stiff and sore in his neck, to the point where he couldn't lift it, or move without falling. (He had this problem when he was younger) My trainer got him up, and gave me some of this and told me to massage it into his neck. As I had my final callback class to ride in, and I was the first one to go out. So we used a bit of this, and it worked almost instantly. The knot in his neck smoothed out a bit, and he seemed to feel better. After my class we did spend a good two hours just massaging his neck, but this stuff works wonders. Great for horses with sensitive skin as well! Won't burn or sting them like other liniments/balms will. I LOVE THIS STUFF. Definitely won't have a tack room without it(Photo is of Cati at the show after using this balm)

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this stuff (for myself!) Effol Horse Balm can be used on people or horses - I use it on myself for my various aches and pains after riding. It's actually very similar to a human product called Biofreeze that both my chiropractor and massage therapist recommend to their patients for a third of the price and five times the quantity! It goes on cold (feels refreshing!) and then feels warm after a couple minutes, and it really does work making muscle strains feel better. It's very strong smelling but I personally like it. Also the container says do not use within 48 hours of competing but looking at the ingredients, I'm not sure what the ingredient of concern is. I don't compete so it's not an issue for me but it may be for some. Overall it's a great product and I'm always sure to have some on hand.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Gel Liniment! I love this product! The gel stays where you want it & has immediate effects. It is very mild (I've used it on myself). You might not like it if you are used to very stong liniments, but this is perfect for more sensitive areas/horses.

    Ever since I was the girl with 1,000 breyer horses and the raggity braid in her hair, I was always obsessed. In second grade I moved into a town with a barn right down the street, which is when I started taking lessons...
