What inspired the Equilibrium Magnetic Rug for horses?
Inspired by one of Equilibrium’s own horses, Jack, who retired sound from racing after 71 races. Jack was 10 at the time of retiring and got up to all sorts of mischief when he didn’t have a job to do, so the decision was taken to retrain him as a riding horse. However, Jacks back was incredibly sensitive, and he wasn’t keen on anyone touching it. He would wear his Magnetic Rug under his stable rug overnight and use his Massage Pad in the day. Eventually, Jack went on to have a very successful (second!) career in endurance until he retired in 2014 at Equilibrium HQ, where he still rules the roost today!
What is the material used within the Magnetic Rug for horses?
This comfortable rug is made from a poly-cotton twill giving it the best of both materials. It is breathable and soft, yet strong!
The rug also features
- Anti-rub lining across the chest, shoulder and neck for your horses’ comfort
- Nylon hook receptive inner lining to attach magnets where your horse needs them.
Which magnets are used and how do they work?
The body’s cells have electromagnetic properties which means they can be affected by a magnetic field. The magnets used in this Magnetic Rug for horses present two alternating poles to the body, negative and positive, making them different to standard Neodymium magnets, which present only one pole. These strong, linear and permanent magnetic fields of alternating pole sequences penetrate into the body tissue.
