New stable boots to help horses with stiff joints have been launched by Veredus.
The Veredus Magnetick Stable EVO boots are designed to “bring relief from stiffness and support joints”.
They are aimed at older horses suffering with stiff joints – especially in the cold, damp weather – and younger horses in hard work.
The boots have a “Dry Fast Dry” interchangeable “under bandage” – which is a highly absorbent fabric that lines the inside of the boot, wicking moisture away from the leg.
It is fixed securely to the inside of the boot by velcro and can be easily removed for washing.
An elastic velcro fastening system gives support under the fetlock and securely positions the boot around the leg, while avoiding the risk of over tightening.
“The Evo boot has been designed to hug the horse’s leg giving support to tendons and helping reduce after work swellings,” said a spokesman for Veredus.
“A series of magnets is encased in padding, which sit behind the lining around the ligament and tendon area. Magneto therapy stimulates cell activity, which helps to increase the blood flow injured parts. It also speeds relaxes the muscles, reduces swelling and helps to stimulate the production of elastin and collagen.”
The boots come in front and rear design and cost £141.
They come in small, medium and large.
