- Item #16478


Sign in to choose an existing horse

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

Use the First+Ice Replacement Packs with any Ice Horse boot or wrap! Keep one set in the freezer while using another set on your horse.

    Ice Horse First+Ice Replacement Packs is rated 3.7647 out of 5 by 17.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great product! I have had my ice boots for 4 years and Ice Horse made it so easy to replace the ice packs. I use these boots after each session with my horse as a preventative measure, so far so good, his legs cool quickly and are very clean/tight.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Really gets the areas cold!! I purchased these in order to help re-hab my horse's suspensory. They get his leg colder than any other ice pack, and I've tried them all! I just put them inside a splint boot or inside my other ice boots. They work really well inside my back on track knee boots as well!

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good product for ice therapy I do like to use the ice horse product. they work well when used properly. read the instructions. First wet the area where the product is to be applied. it just conducts the cooling therapy better. Always make sure to squeeze any accumulated air out of each pouch after use. they will last longer this way. Only three stars due to the fact they don't stay very moldable as they did for the first use. but over all a good product

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from easy I have had the tendon boots for more than 10 years. Boots are very easy to use, horses tolerate them well .I show about 6 or 7 weeks annually and use them on 1 or 2 horses daily while showing. I have had only 1 ice pack break until now. For whatever reason, I had 6 rupture simultaneously. They were in a really hot part of my trailer, so perhaps that is why. But for the length of time I have had them, I certainly think it is reasonable!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Idea I must ice my drill team horse's legs after each practice. I love the idea of this product but find it difficult to use. The ice packs freeze solid--no matter how you lay them out in the freezer. When frozen they become difficult to get into the holder pockets in the boot. It took too much time and was frustrating (as your fingers froze). Once I did get them in the pockets, then I had the problem of getting them tight enough on my horse's legs (the hard frozen packet would be square and my horse's legs are round). As they thawed, the boot would slip down the leg. My horse is a big guy and these boots only come in one size. I found it difficult to even strap them on. Bottom line. I have ordered another type of ice pack. A common ice pack of "gel". The gel pack stays soft when frozen so it is easy to put them into the boot pockets and to put the boot securely on a round leg. Again a wonderful idea for icing a horse's leg on a regular basis but the manufacture should give some thought to the type of ice pack provided and, also, offering different sizes of boots as horse's legs vary.
