Designers & manufacturers of the “Original Anatomic Cold Water Boots”
Invented and designed by PE Sport & Technical to help prevent/ reduce swelling, cool tendons after exercise/ competition or for treating injuries. PE Sport has had huge success in helping sports horses & race horses with Magnet & Infrared technology, by combining compression & pressure techniques.
Founded on the principle of contouring and shaping, the anatomical design delivers a cold cushioned therapy treatment to the tendon & fetlock areas. Elasticated straps advance the treatment by allowing tension to be applied during fastening, adding an element of compression to intensify the treatment and enhance results.
Cold Water Boots are a brilliant and easy alternative to cold hosing your horse's legs.
They are full of micro-crystals which turn into a gel when soaked in water. The gel forms a soft cushion which is comfortable against the horse's skin. Anatomical design allows horses to be walked around whilst wearing the boots; no need to stand still. Cold Water Boots are a great idea for reducing swelling, cooling tendons after exercise or treating injuries.

USING COLD WATER BOOTS AFTER EXERCISE:
After hard work the Cold Water Boots should be applied for around 20 minutes. For extra cold treatment place ice or ice packs in the bucket of water that they are being soaked in. The colder the water, the colder the boots. For a maximum cold effect, place the Cold Water Boots straight from the ice water into a bag and leave in the fridge for one hour, this will provide a 3-5 minute initial blast of cold on the horse's leg. Never freeze Cold Water Boots.
USING COLD WATER BOOTS FOR INJURY:
Apply at least 6-7 times a day and use for no longer than 20 minutes at a time. After 20 minutes the heat of the horse's leg will naturally start to heat up the Cold Water Boots.
STORING HORSE COLD WATER BOOTS:If competing or using for injury over a couple of days the boots can be stored in the bucket of water. Once finished with the boots they need to be hung out to dry, away from direct sunlight. Once dry they can be stored away. When getting the boots back out to use again, soak for 1 hour to reactivate.
