We're bringing you this product at the lowest price allowed by the manufacturer. That means this item isn't eligible for additional discounts or promotions.

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 most convenient way to provide cold compression therapy to the tendon area.

The EquiFit Tendon GelCompression 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. 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.

    EquiFit Tendon GelCompression Boot is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 12.
    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.

    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.

    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!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice boots! They are easy to use and of good quality. Ice compression reduces the need for cold hosing and standing wraps.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Worth the money Have tried a few different ice recovery products. Am very pleased with the ease of use and the overall results achieved.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Cold Therapy Product I bought this product for my mare when she developed a leg ligament injury. I love the fact it provides both cold therapy and compression, two of the components for treatment of inflammation. With the many closures, it stays in place extremely well and covers the full lower leg. 2 pumps are provided though they could have only provided one, and there is a slight twisting lock when you connect to ensure you get the pressure in the boot. There is clearly a left and a right leg, and the ice pack maintains flexibility even when frozen. I use one every day for over a month now and it still looks like new except for the small hay flecks that adhere to the exterior fabric. Once my mare is back in full work, I will be using both on her front legs every time we work they are so easy to use and durable. My mare is used to having her legs wrapped and she is totally unconcerned with these on her leg.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Product for Cold Therapy My horse recently had a leg injury and I was using another product that was good, but I was intrigued by the ability to add compression to the cold therapy and the fact the gel product would be less stiff when frozen. While these boots are significantly more expensive that what I had been using, I think they are a good investment. The materials seem sturdy and the boot fits the horse's leg very well. They even give some spares of the connector and two complete bulbs with hosing when one could have been enough. Each boot is designed to fit a right or left front leg. And the ability to add compression to the cold really does seem to make a difference in overall effect, appearing to speed the healing. I am using the one boot for an injury now, but I will use both after work on the front legs once the horse is back in work. Seems ideal for maintenance of an older horse who is still jumping.
