Why We Love This

The most convenient way to provide cold compression therapy to the tendon area.  The EquiFit Tendon Gel Compression Boot reduces inflammation, controls swelling, and decreases risk of injury. Can be used for a variety of issues including suspensory injuries, bowed tendons, arthritic changes, and much more. Boots should be worn for no longer than 20 minutes per day.

Made in the USA

EquiFit Replacement Tendon GelPaks

Favorite Features  

  • GelPaks adhere to an outer shell that provides air compression via hand pump, and retain intense cold (or heat, if needed) while conforming to your horse's legs and remaining pliable out of the freezer
  • The boot itself includes 5 hook-and-loop closures for optimal fit
  • Eliminate the bulk of machines and the inconvenience associated with traditional cold therapy application
  • Super easy to use

Hassle-Free Returns

SmartPak Returns

We put our products to the test in our barns and on our horses, so we're confident that you'll be thrilled with your purchase. However, we know that life in the barn can sometimes be unpredictable. That's why we've created a stress-free return policy. If you purchase an item and it doesn't meet your expectations, we want to know about it, take care of you and give you your money back.

Free Return Shipping on all Sized Items

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'!).

The Fine Print

We love our products and we're happy to take them back - even custom items. We'll happily take back everything from engraved halters to personalized jackets - even embroidered blankets that have been worn (minus the manure, please). But there are a few things we have to restrict returns on (silly federal regulations).

Undergarments
Health regulations require that undergarments (including bras) need to be in new condition (tags and packages intact) in order to be returned. (Even if it wasn't required, do you really want to shop from a store that takes back used undergarments?!)

Saddles
As riders, we know what a big investment a saddle is. That's why we're proud to offer the best Test Ride program in the business. You can keep our Test Ride saddles risk-free for five days, to really make sure you like the fit and the feel. We know that to truly try a saddle, you have to really ride in it. So go ahead and girth it up. Forget about wrapping your stirrup leathers. Try it with or without a saddle pad. Basically, treat it like you already bought it, so you can make sure you really want to. Because when you buy a saddle from us, we want to make sure you love it. Of course, we want our other customers to love their new saddles, too.
That's why we have a Test Ride option for each saddle we carry - so that all of the other saddles can stay in pristine condition, waiting for their new owners. For this reason, if you purchase a saddle outside the Test Ride program, it's still eligible for return, but must be free from any marks or damage.

So that's it. Seriously. Those are all of our "rules." Well, except the most important one - treating our customers the way we want to be treated. So if you have any questions or if there is anything we can do, please call us at 1-800-461-8898 or email CustomerCare@SmartPak.com. We are always happy to help.

Instructions

Instructions for Use:
Cold Therapy Application Procedure

1. For optimal cold treatment, place GelPaks in freezer for six hours before initial use.
2. As the GelPaks will never freeze solid, lay them flat and evenly disperse gel before placing in corresponding (right or left) boot.
3. Place uncompressed boot against the leg. Secure with Velcro® attachments.
4. Attach pump, turn valve to "On" position and pump to desired level of compression (8-12 pumps).
5. Once desired compression is reached, turn valve to "Off' position and detach tube.
6. To end therapy, turn valve to "On" position to deflate boot before removing from leg.
7. After use, the GelPaks should be returned to the freezer immediately, but only require 20 minutes in the freezer to regain a freezing temperature after initial use. If a freezer is not available, the GelPaks can be placed in a large, sealed bag and buried in an ice chest to regain freezing temperature.


Hot Therapy Application Procedure

1. Place GelPak in heating unit and cover completely with water.
2. Increase water temperature to 71ºC/160ºF and maintain at temperature for 20- minutes.
3. Repeat Steps 2 - 6 from Cold Therapy Instructions.

    EquiFit Tendon GelCompression Boot is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 19.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy to use!! I bought this after seeing results at my barn from others who have similar pairs. Excellent compression and even cold distribution. Love them!
    Date published: 2018-04-12
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from THE BEST ! THE BEST ! Been using these for 3 yrs now - I have tried all the “gel” icing products for over 20 yrs(don’t use anymore) & These work ! From minor dings to major swelling injuries-I do “pump” up just enough so the cold gel is against the leg, esp where needed. Only 20 min -cold really penetrates the tissue and no “burn” feeling on the horse - they enjoy it and stand quietly. I’ve used crushed ice in bags, or the other “gel” icing products & I was constantly adjusting them & horse was NOT comfortable and moved around a lot. I keep gel liners in freezer - STAYS SOFT AGAINST HORSE - always ready to use. Wish I had these 20 yrs ago !

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works great! This was money well spent. My mare has a badly sprained fetlock that I have been icing with just ice for weeks. Since I started using the compression boots her leg actually started to cool down internally and the sweeling goes down completely after the 20 minutes with the compression ice boots on. It just seems to drive the cold further into the tussue, where it is actually needed. Also the cold gel cools differently than ice. I can leave the gel on my arm for 20 min without getting cold burn, yet get a good deep cooling from it, can't do the same with iced water, it is way more agressive!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Favorite boots, a rehab must! I bought these a month ago when my horse came up with a bowed tendon. I had borrowed these from a friend and knew I had to invest in a pair for myself. I absolutely love them, really simple to use and the compression is so much more effective than regular ice boots. My vet was so happy I had these, and I believe they have definitely made a difference in my horse's recovery!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Icing Boot - with compression I LOVE this ice boot, because it actually works. There are a few ice boots I have used that didn't work very well, and left my horses legs not even cold when I used them. I asked my Vet and she completely recommended these boots, and uses them on here horse after workouts as well. The only thing I would say about them is that they are expensive, but you get what you pay for, and with this one you get a GREAT product.
    Date published: 2015-10-29
    Rated 2 out of 5 by from These boots are nice because they are long and provide good coverage but the boot is bulky and tends to gap and create pockets that aren't touching the leg. I tried readjusting throughout the icing process but the leg had warm spots after 30-45 minutes. I did not use the compression feature so I'm not sure if this would have helped. I have tried several brands of ice boots and so far none have been perfect but I've had better luck with another brand of boot.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Pricey but well worth it I purchased these for my gelding who was diagnosed with a superficial flexor tendon injury and was instructed to ice as much as possible. These boots are very easy to use, and I love the fact that they offer compression as well as cold therapy. The gel packs don't stay ice cold, but for how convenient they are to use, I really can't complain. They are fairly durable - I have used them 2-3 times a day for the past two months and they're not showing much wear and tear, besides little pieces of bedding that stick to them. Overall I highly recommend these boots to anyone looking for convenient cols therapy.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from The verdict is still out... My mare is off due to an inflamed splint bone and I wanted to find an easy way to cool her legs down after we get back into work. To preface, I am a physical therapist and therefore have a little bit of a different way of looking at certain things. I think the misconception about these boots is that they are going to make your horses legs as cold as icing them. Guess what? Nothing will make the legs as cold as water and ice. I absolutely love the concept of these boots, cold AND compression is hard to come by. The first time I tried them I took the boots off after twenty minutes and I wasn't that impressed with how cold her legs felt...HOWEVER, I attempted a second time the following evening and after they were on her for twenty minutes I put them on my arm and pumped them up. They still had a lot of cold left to them and while the boot was on my arm it was quite chilly. I am keeping the boots because they will be super simple and not messy at all when I'm just looking for a quick cool down after a ride. I wish they got a little colder but I think I just wanted her legs to be as cold as they get when she gets iced which is too high a standard for anything other than regular old ice and water. Great quality and construction though, I can tell they will last a long time.
    Date published: 2014-10-18
    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Am I the only one? I felt these boots did not stay cold long enough. I have to travel with them in an ice-filled cooler for several hours to events, and after 20 minutes on my mare's front legs, I removed them and they were barely cool. No cold left for the hind legs! I tried on 2 separate occasions with the same result. Perhaps if you could take them right out of the freezer it would be a different story. They are much easier to use than boots with multiple ice/gel pack inserts or just plain ice. The compression is a great idea, but the longevity of the "cooling" effect left a lot to be desired.
    Date published: 2014-06-27
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent product If you can't afford a Game Ready, this is a terrific alternative: cost effective, highly functional, well made, and cools with pressure. Love it!
