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'!).

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

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

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 18.
    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.

    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.
