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 is rated 4.555555555555555 out of 5 by 9.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Liniment, Needs New Container I LOVE this liniment! The ingredients are exactly what I look for in a liniment, as I love the effect of Arnica. It has that great tingliness without feeling COLD. It also has a nice scent. However, it's very hard to use out of this little tub, if you have to reach back into the jar after massaging it onto your horse, it winds up with little bits of hair, dirt, etc in it. I should have just put it into a squeeze bottle myself, but it would be nice if it came that way.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from New Favorite Liniment! Just tried this product for the first time, and it is officially my new favorite liniment! It's gentle on the skin, yet very effective (even rubbed it on my own back out of curiosity). It has just enough of a cooling tingle without being COLD, and doesn't leave your fingertips freezing all day after applying it. It almost has a little bit of an Icy Hot effect. It does have a VERY strong scent, which some people may find overpowering, but I love. I especially love that it contains Arnica. I was specifically searching for one that did as I use Arnica gel on myself for all my own sore muscles. This product was very effective in helping me to relieve a large muscle knot in my gelding's stifle that was causing some mild irregularities in his gaits. Overall, very pleased. My only fault with it is that it would be much easier to use if it were in a bottle rather than a tub. Having to scoop it out is a bit messy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My horse loves this liniment!! My mare is coming back from an injury and everytime I ride her I've been rubbing this on her shoulder. She loves it! Generally she hates being curried/rubbed but with when I put this on her she is happy and relaxed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from It works really good on me I bought this for rubbing my horse's neck and back after workout, but I ended up using this more myself. It works really good on achy joints and muscles. It is not sticky, is easy to apply, and gives refreshing feeling. It is in the gel form, but is very soft, so you have to be careful when you open the jar. Don't flip it upside down.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Darn! I was going to buy this because it sounded great....but I wanted to check on USEF's banned substances just in case. Camphor is on the 2014 banned substances list (https://www.usef.org/documents/drugsMeds/drugsMedsGuidelines2014.pdf). Just wanted to put that out there for anyone who that might affect. I'm not sure what the clearance time for camphor is...
