I'm so excited to announce that I'm now sponsored by Equicrown Canada!
Equicrown has a great lineup of products including their Fit compression bandages and lots of custom ordered, fitted compression bandages.
Although we might think about compression bandages as something only for therapy and rehab from injuries or for horses with chronic stocking up issues - I think these are a great addition for any competition horse. If you have ever been on a never ending plane, train or automobile ride you know how difficult it is to regain mobility in your legs once lymphatic fluid has settled in them. Now imagine our horses who are plucked out of their big paddocks, put in a moving box and then confined to a little stall for nearly a week and how their legs must feel! To combat this we bandage and put mats and extra bedding in the stalls but big stable bandages are bulky and clumsy to put on, as well as trapping heat against the legs. And mats and shavings can only do so much.
Equicrown Fit compression bandages, once sized are very easy to apply and fit great to the leg with no risk of bowing a tendon if they are not applied correctly and they are very breathable! Pete loves his!
And for those of us who occasionally have an injured horse - I can imagine that having an Equicrown hock bandage is way easier to deal with for bandage changes than wrapping a hock every day!
This is a great, innovative product with many uses and they are so comfortable for the horses to wear. We will put them to good use here in Florida and especailly at GDF #5 which is the biggest CDI here to date!
