Mobility issues with horses are extremely common, particularly with older horses and animals who have competed within a discipline or led an active lifestyle.
Mobility issues are often experienced due to a joint, muscle or ligament problem - the most common being arthritis. Apart from obvious lameness and stiffness, sometimes the signs are more subtle and initially noticed by the riders due to a drop in performance, refusing jumps or changes in the horses behaviour.
Many owners look to support their horses joint care with supplements, a balanced diet and an activity program to keep them fit. Now another option is available and widely respected within the equine community - advanced magnetic technology. Through many '5 star' results and word-of-mouth many owners are now looking towards a more holistic approach in providing their horses with a long-term and natural approach using these unique magnetic fields.
But, does advanced magnetic technology really do its job and help horses with mobility issues?
We look back at some stories shared with our team on how advanced magnetic technology has supported other horses with varying mobility issues.
Camilla Jarvis contacted us about a horse she had loaned and was looking after called Silver who was finding it hard to get up when lying down.
“I just wanted to thank you so much for the wonderful magnetic bands that help my horse Silver, who needs a quiet life and my aim is to keep him sound. I have noticed a marked improvement in his ease of getting up from lying down and general mobility since he has worn his StreamZ advanced magnetic bands. We continue to hack gently at he walks and has a little trot each day to keep supple. He is generally a very happy horse and StreamZ unique approach has a part to play in this.” - Camilla Jarvis.
Rachel Taylor contacted us about her horse Fidget who was recovering from a check ligament injury and was a long term sufferer of arthritis in her hocks.
“I bought EQU StreamZ bands for my horse Fidget when she damaged her check ligament. In just 4-months she has gone from having a hole in her ligament to it healing completely! She is already sound and started trot work a couple of weeks ago with no issues . As an added bonus she has not required any pain killers for her ongoing hock arthritis since she came back into work and we put this down to her StreamZ advanced magnetic bands. 5 stars from us!” - Rachel Taylor
Natalie Major contacted us about her daughters pony who was showing signs of mobility issues.
“My daughters pony Atlas seems to get very stiff and short on both his hind legs, particularly after any sort or jumping or hard work. We have had everything checked and nothing has flagged up on scans. When he rests for a few days he seems happier but unfortunately he has had to rest a lot recently! After trying a friends EQU StreamZ advanced magnetic bands for a couple of days he was so much better!! We have now purchased our own set and he’s remained sound ever since! He seems to be feeling great and because of these results almost every horse on our yard has a pair…they are amazing!“ - Natalie Major
Natalie Burdiss contacted us about her horse Merlin who has experienced a significant benefit to wearing his EQU Streamz bands.
“Merlin wears his EQU StreamZ magnetic bands 24/7. After a lot of problems and investigations carried out by our vet Merlin was diagnosed with kissing spine and degenerative joint disease (DJD) in his hocks. He has undergone surgery for this and receives injections into his hocks to keep him sound but we know this is not the best long-term solution. We came across StreamZ bands and gave them a go. Merlin would be a great ambassador for your product as I feel your technology has contributed to his recovery massively. He is a happy and playful horse as you can see from this picture!”
Improving your horses joint care program can be a key aspect of your horses ongoing wellbeing. Just as we experience, any limitation in joint movement leads to inflammation within the joint and the pain then associated to the swelling.
With advanced magnetic technology making such waves within the equine community; tack such as EQU StreamZ horse bands provide a non-invasive solution to many horses owners. As no heat is created by Streamz unique magnetic approach the tack can be placed around the cannon bone and left on 24/7 - providing long term and continuous support.
Care about your horses joints? Why not look at EQU StreamZ magnetic bands.
