Selects Ice Horse Cold Therapy

The Canadian Equestrian Team (CET) is pleased to announce they have selected MacKinnon Products’ Ice Horse as their official cold therapy treatment for the 2015 Pan American Games to be held in Toronto July 12-26.

“We were thrilled to have received a call from one of the team veterinarians in late spring,” said Julie Garella, Ice Horse CEO. “They let us know the team had tried a couple of Ice Horse products at the 2014 World Equestrian Games in France. So good were the results, that the CET decided to use an assortment of products from Big Black Boots to Back Blankets while training for, and competing at, the upcoming games.”

Canadian Eventing team veterinarian, Dr. Christiana Ober speaks to the benefits of Ice Horse products, “The Ice Horse products are an integral part of our preventive maintenance and soundness program. We use them after gallops and hard schools to prevent inflammation in legs and joints. We have used the boots religiously leading up to and during the TORONTO 2015 Pan American games. I believe in these products and their ability to alleviate inflammation.”

Effective Cold Therapy Now Easier Than Ever, Thanks to Ice Horse!

 

 

 

Ice Horse, the most trusted name in equine cold therapy today announced a major design change making the application of cold therapy for equine athletes easier than ever to apply.

Over the past few years the company developed a breathable wrap using a pocket to hold the ice packs. The wrap itself stretches to provide even compression on the area being treated.   The latest enhancement allows ice packs to Velcro directly onto the wrap.

Julie Garella, CEO of MacKinnon Products that manufactures Ice Horse says “We had a lot of calls from caregivers telling us how much they liked our product, but wishing they didn’t have to fiddle around with placing the ice packs into sleeves inside the wraps.  It took us awhile to figure out a design that would allow the ice to Velcro directly on the wrap, without compromising the elasticity, which is, provides maximum compression of the ice against the leg. This enhancement achieves both. “

The new design elements mark the company’s foray into the veterinary and equine orthopedic markets. “Everyone understands a cold sack of peas on a sore area” says Garella. “Our products simply make the application on horses easy to use and cost effective”.

Dr. Mark Revenaugh of Northwest Equine Performance and veterinarian for the United States Equestrian Team agrees.  “Cold therapy is oftentimes the best treatment for sport horse injuries.  Standing your horse in a snow bank or an ice-cold stream is optimal, but those options are not always practical.  I’ve found Ice Horse to be a great option:  it’s easy to use, practical, and highly effective.” 

For customers with the pocket style wraps, “don’t worry“ says Garella. The new ice packs come with a strip covering the Velcro so they are still compatible with the pocketed version. All Ice Horse products still proudly made in the United States.
