- 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 1 out of 5 by from Horrible! The set that came with my Ice Horse Tendon Boots popped after a use or two. I tried to duct tape them to get by and phoned Smartpak to let them know. They quickly sent me replacements, but those popped too. None of the ones I have owned have frozen into "fluffy snow" as advertised. They have always frozen rock solid. I leave them out and try to gently massage out the lumps or I have even use a spoon to painstakingly break up the solid block of ice. I am just going to by an off brand to use in the boot. Super frustrating.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Works Well The ice packs work well and are easy to use. After many uses and refreezing they start to leak, so I just ordered replacements.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Useful cold packs These freeze well, and after several uses, come out of the freezer "chunky." I let them thaw a few minutes and then smooth the chunks out. They stay cold for 20-30 minutes even in summer heat and humidity.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Could be more durable... I have used the Ice Horse products for years, but the ice packs could be more durable. After moderate use they start to leak through the small hole that is used to fill them. Maybe rethinking the design would make them hold up better.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love these My favorite ice packs--for man or beast. They get really, really cold but still stay soft enough that they mold to the site. As a bonus, the price is right.I will say that they don't last forever and can tear and leak after a lot of stress. But I've never had one die before working great for many, many uses.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Practical to use; Distributes cold well These ice boots distribute cold evenly, are easy to use and practical for daily use. I put them on after every schooling session for 15-20 minutes, keep them in an ice chest all day and they are always still cold and ready to go. I just bought a second pair for his back legs.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Yeah Replacements!! What a concept.....inexpensive replacements!! No need to buy the entire thing again because one part broke/got lost/stolen! More equine products should follow suit! I keep an extra pair on hand in the event I need to swap out packs for more horses. At this price you can have several extra on hand!!
