Magnetic Therapy for Horses

Here is some information on how Magnetic Therapy works and when you should use it on your horse.

How does Magnetic Therapy work for horses?

The magnetic field generated by the magnets in a magnetic rug or boot relaxes the capillary walls and surrounding muscle and soft tissue. As a result your horse will benefit from improved oxygen and blood flow which will help to promote healing and speed up the recovery process.

Which type of magnets are the most effective?

There are many different types of therapeutic magnets available. The strength of the magnet depends on size, depth, type of magnet etc.   As long as they have a sufficient strength they will create a magnetic field strong enough to penetrate through the body. Magnets do not heal. It’s the magnetic field the magnet creates which influences the environment for accelerated healing to take place.
