Product Review: Benefab® Smart Therapeutic Poll Pad

June 22, 2018 2 min read

By Betsy from Bitsandbays.com When a body worker mentioned that my gelding was tight in his poll, I immediately wondered if my favorite alternative-therapy brand might have something to help. Enter the Benefab®Smart Therapeutic Poll Pad. Ceramic Infused Therapy: Check.Magnetic Therapy:Check.Targeted Acupressure Points: Check.Padded For Comfort:Check.Cute Colors:Check. I have been absolutely delighted with the reaction my gelding has offered to the Benefab® Smart Therapeutic Poll Pad, and tickled that it was even available in the perfect color to match his Perri’s Padded Leather Halter. On top of the standard Benefab® ceramic-infused materials, the poll pad includes two carefully placed 2400 gauss magnets at key acupressure points. According to the Benefab website, the poll pad “helps harmonize bodily functions safely and naturallystimulating recovery time, promoting blood circulation, increasing oxygen flow, and ultimately reducing pain and stiffness.” I keep the poll pad on my halter at all times (it can also be used on a bridle) and have personally seen really outstanding results in my gelding’s relaxation level, as well as less tightness in his poll. I am happy any time I can make my horses more comfortable and relaxed. They are athletes who work hard whenever they are asked, and I feel it is my responsibility (and my pleasure) to help ensure that they lead happy, healthy lives. The great thing about the Benefab® Smart Therapeutic Poll Pad is that it isn’t just useful for rehabbing an injury; it is an excellent way to add a myriad of health-related benefits to your horse’s daily life. Whether you have noticed some discomfort in your horse’s poll (tenderness, stiffness, head shaking, reluctance to be bridled, etc.) or you just want to take advantage of the numerous benefits the Benefab® products offer (read more about them here) you can’t go wrong with the Therapeutic Smart Poll Pad. Stay tuned for a review of the Benefab® Therapeutic Polo Wraps on bitsandbays.com!

A horse’s nature and their environment can contribute to scrapes, bruises, cuts, punctures, and all sorts of different trauma to the legs. Usually, these are not serious, and the swelling goes away easily. However, horses are also susceptible to a more challenging type of limb swelling called cellulitis.
