The latest gear
Got a horse who sweats by the bucketload after an event? Trying to keep a horse cool on a hot day before and after a round of cross-country or showjumping can be difficult, but the Aerochill Rug can help with your horse’s recovery after an intensive round of exercise. With its clever cooling system (inset below), the rug is designed for your horse’s comfort by cooling him down fast and helping his muscles recover to aid his performance and stamina for the next phase. To help maximise your horse’s performance, the Aerochill Rug has a super-absorbent polymer fibre fabric that works as a cooling system to draw heat off a hot horse and improve his overall blood circulation. To get the cooling process started, you need to pour water over the rug and pop it straight on your horse, then ensure it’s kept wet so it keeps on working. Not only does this innovative cooling system alleviate heat exhaustion, it also aids muscle recovery. It’s a win-win for horse riders who ride and compete frequently and need their horses to recover quickly after a competition. Because of its cooling system, the rug is excellent for horses who travel in hot conditions, too, and ideal for precompetition use to keep your horse cool before he starts the main exercise. With a front buckle belly strap and fillet string to keep the rug in place, all you need to do is pour water over the rug and put it straight on the horse to reap the rewards. You’ll also get a nifty cooling bag to pop the wet rug in when you’ve finished with it. The Aerochill Rug is perfect for any equestrian disciplines, but is particularly suitable for those who event or do endurance riding. All in all, it’s a great buy for riders with horses who do intensive physical exercise.
