The Ice-Vibe cooling boots are used for a cooling effect on both front and hind legs, before or after exercise - or even during rehabilitation. They are designed to enhance blood circulation through vibrations that have a massaging effect and work against strained ligaments and tendon injuries. They also help stimulate the lymphatic system to reduce swelling and soreness.
Use the boots once daily to assist the horse during training, or increase treatment during rehabilitation for more effective healing.
Using them before exercise helps prepare the horse's legs by increasing blood flow to tendons and ligaments, making them more elastic and reducing the risk of injuries. Using them after exercise minimizes the risk of soreness, swelling, and inflammation.
The cooling pack, with an interior of gel beads that conform to the horse's legs, is secured with Velcro straps closest to the horse, under the boot. These should be placed in the freezer for approximately 4 hours for effective cooling. If you want to use the cooling boots at a competition after your round, you can place the packs in a cooler bag and take them with you in transport.
The boots are made of neoprene, which is a flexible, lightweight, and dirt- and water-resistant material. They have four inner pockets where the vibration panel is placed. Only one vibration panel is used per leg; multiple panels in multiple pockets are not used simultaneously. The different pockets are provided so that you can move the panel away from potentially sensitive areas and control where it operates. The standard is to use the pocket farthest from the Velcro straps. The panel is placed with the flat side against the horse and the power button facing upward. After putting the boot on the horse, you activate the panel by holding the button for 3 seconds.
The vibration panels have three different settings and you need to acclimate the horse to the use of the boots initially. To acclimate the horse, start by treating one leg at a time at the lowest level. At level 1, the vibrations will automatically shut off after 10 minutes.
For a horse accustomed to using the boots, it's most common to use level 2. At this level, vibrations automatically turn off after 20 minutes.
Level 3 also automatically shuts off after 20 minutes but has a higher intensity, primarily used for horses with heavily swollen hind legs or significant scar tissue that requires a more intense massage.
Never use the cooling packs without the vibration panels, as it can overcool the legs.

- About the Brand
The Irish brand Horseware has over the years almost become synonymous with horse blankets and is the clear market leader in Sweden. The blanket series Rambo, top-of-the-line models of world-class quality, and Amigo, offering affordable quality blankets, have made Horseware immensely popular among horse owners. Even though blankets are the foundation and what most people associate with Horseware, the Micklem bridles have also become a highly regarded addition to the product range, thanks to their ergonomic design that has revolutionized how bridles are designed based on the horse's ergonomics.
