Equine Skeletal Systems: The Horse's Legs

November 22, 2017 3 min read

A wise professor once told me, a horse without healthy joints is no horse at all. This helped teach me the great importance that a horse's legs and feet play into their lives - especially for our performance horses. In nature, horses are flight animals that graze frequently. Even while grazing, the amount of weight and pressure bared by a horse's legs is extreme. In order to survive (and perform), they must be able to change directions on a dime, jump over obstacles, and remain hardy enough to perform these functions repeatedly, maybe even multiple times throughout the day. The true power behind the Equine Legs is tremendous and requires a lot of responsibility from us to take care of them. In the wild, horses may go uncured and suffer soundness and lameness issues, but in our barns at home, we should exercise caution and keep up with maintenance of our horse's legs. We are all bound to find ourselves using preventative and rehabilitative measures for our horse's legs; the question is, how effective is your regimen? Since horses are often faced with poor footing, competitive environments, trailering, and more, they tend to stock up (i.e. swell). During these times, a horse can greatly benefit from proper wrapping. With that being said, to better serve your horse, it makes sense to purchase these products and be prepared to address any soreness and/or injury that may occur. Your horse works hard to perform for you, and their legs need a proper preventative and rehabilitative regimen. Here at BeneFab® by Sore No-More®, we offer a variety of products to help create a perfect daily regimen for your horse. Everything we design incorporates ceramic therapy which works by increasing blood circulation. This in turn helps reduce inflammation, ultimately preventing and rehabilitating soreness and stiffness. For the equine athlete… Our Smart QuickWraps feature ceramic-infused fabric in addition to 11-14 medical grade, neodymium magnets (the number of magnets depend upon which leg and its known acupuncture points)that target major tendons, ligaments, and joints in the hind and front legs. Their versatile design allows for the inner cushion and outer wrap to be separated for custom coverage. To cover the knee, the QuickWrap inner section (which is where the targeted magnets are embedded) can be moved up so that the cushion extends over the knee, providing the therapeutic benefits to that area. To cover the coronet band, the inner cushion can be moved down. For those who struggle with wet climates, scrapes, or funguses… In addition to helping to relieve soreness and stiffness, our Therapeutic VersiWraps are made up of ceramic-infused, antimicrobial fabric that prevents the growth of fungus and bacteria. They also offer innovative protection along with the benefits of ceramic therapy. For the frequent wrapper… Our Therapeutic Polo Wraps are a necessary addition to any Polo Wrap collection. They’re made up of ceramic-infused fabric that is a high-quality polyester fleece, and offer a mor e flexible hold than traditional polo bandages, along with the benefits of ceramic therapy. They're designed for longevity and effectiveness, without sacrificing style. For extra additional relief... Sore No-More's all-natural, herbal-based formulas provide relief from sore, tense muscles before or after a workout. The Performance Ultra line is an FEI-approved, clinical strength formula, and is the only liniment on the market that's backed by clinical data showing a 90% reduction in back pain with 6-weeks of use. We highly recommend using Sore No-More® products underneath BeneFab® gear for best results!

Inflammation is our body's natural response to injury or infection and can be very beneficial. But it can become a problem when inflammation hangs around too long or in healthy tissue. Inflammation can impede circulation, leading to the buildup of cholesterol-rich, fatty plaque, damaging the lining of arteries.
