I have been on the lookout for an excellent pair of cold boots for ages now. Studies show that cold running water, or ice are the best ways to reduce the temperature of the horses legs, so I've been looking for an excellent pair of something that will work well when at an event post cross country.
I have tried everything! A hose of water is impossible out in a field in the middle of nowhere and I've tried boots that you dunk in water, bandages that you freeze and other things designed to work. Sadly none have been really what I wanted, due to being awkward, time consuming or just basically not working! It's been frustrating......Until I tried Cryochaps!
That's it I'm now sorted!! These boots are absolutely perfect! They are so easy to apply and use. They stay cold at events and the best bit....THEY WORK!! Thank heavens!!
I pop them in the freezer and on the morning of an event I pop them in a cold box where they stay until I need them. They stay cold all day and are very quick to use.
To look at they have a gel pad, and attached to this is a soft material section that has straps and Velcro. They will wrap around any size of leg, they are long enough to cover the WHOLE length of the leg! And they fit all my horses really well, not only providing cold therapy but compression too. I love them!
