How to cool down horses quickly – Ice Therapy with Jade Findlay and Equi-Ice
Cooling down your horse quickly after strenuous exercise is so important for it’s recovery and health, and no-one knows this more than Jade Findlay, equestrian and eventing specialist. At the recent Melbourne International 3 Day Event, Jade used Equi-Ice after her cross-country event to cool down her mare.
Reducing your horses core body temperature after exercise or in warmer weather helps with their general comfort, and post eventing, is critical to helping the horse recover. In this video I chat with Jade about how Ice Therapy helps in her practice, and what she likes about Equi-Ice. She highlights that Equi-Ice makes a big difference to her horse’s recovery time and comfortm and estimates that the cool down process is around 10 minutes quicker with Equi-Ice.
