Here is some information on our Magnetic Products and when you should use them on your horse.

How do Magnetic Products work for horses?

When a magnetic field generated by the magnets in our magnetic rug or boots comes into contact with your horse’s body, this field penetrates through muscle and soft tissue. It is thought to assist the body’s natural healing process and help to speed up recovery.

Whilst there’s very little scientific evidence on exactly how magnets work, there’s plenty of anecdotal evidence and our customers share their positive experiences on the review section on each of our product pages.

Which type of magnets are the most effective?

There are many different types of magnets available. The strength of the magnet depends on size, depth, type of magnet etc. As long as they have a sufficient strength they will create a magnetic field strong enough to penetrate through the body. Magnets do not heal. It’s the magnetic field the magnet creates which influences the environment.
