Why use a Magnetic Rug for your horse?

Magnets have been used on both horses and humans for many, many years. Magnetic fields have been seen to sustain good blood flow and can therefore help to optimise back health.

When should a Magnetic Rug be used for your horse?

  • Every day as part of your horses’ daily routine for maintaining back health. Usually overnight or in the day when stood in.
  • For horses in work from hacking to competition. This includes horses returning to work or retraining.
  • For older horses or those who are slow to warm up.
  • Horses on box rest, standing in for long periods of time or on limited turnout.
  • General knocks and bumps.

Which magnets are used and how do they work?

The body’s cells have electromagnetic properties which means they can be affected by a magnetic field. Vitaflex® magnets are used in this Magnetic Rug for horses and present two alternating poles to the body, negative and positive, making them different to standard Neodymium magnets, which present only one pole. These strong, circular and permanent magnetic fields of alternating pole sequences penetrate into the body tissue.

FAQS

Can I start using the magnetic products on my horse straight away?

Yes. Your horse is unlikely to have any adverse reactions to wearing magnets. As with all new products, you may like to try the products on your horse for a short time initially while you’re nearby to check for fit.

When should I not use magnetic products on my horse?

Do not apply Vitaflex® magnets on open wounds, bruises, infection, areas of inflammations or for the first 5 days following steroid injections.

It is not advisable to use magnets on a horse with a heart murmur or in the first trimester of pregnancy for you or your horse! Note: People with heart pacemakers should not carry magnetic products..

How long will the magnets last?

The magnets will not become less efficient over time.

Can I wash the magnets?

The magnets themselves CANNOT be washed. The Magnetic Back Pad can be washed on a cool wash with a non-biological detergent. The magnets should be removed from the protective pockets prior to washing to avoid accidental damage to the washing machine and the magnets.

How should the products be stored when not in use?

Store in a dry place away from extreme temperatures. For example, avoid storing the magnets in a very cold place such as a tack room during winter, as the magnets may lose their flexibility.

Can the Magnetic Back Pad be worn for turnout?

The Magnetic Back Pad should only be worn in the stable and not worn for turnout as it is best used when the horse is at rest.

Can I put the Magnetic Back Pad on a wet horse?

For comfort reasons, we would recommend towel drying your horse thoroughly before putting the Magnetic Back Pad on.
