WAY TO TREAT YOUR HORSE’S LEGS”
a proprietary blend of multi-tensioned fibers infused with
antimicrobial technology, acts as a
compression sleeve/therapeutic joint support for horses. The sleeve
fits loosely over the pastern and offers 20-30 mmHg of compression
at the fetlock joint when applied to a mildly or moderately swollen
leg. The sleeve takes the place of traditional standing wraps
and can be worn for longer periods of time than traditional wraps.
Unlike traditional wraps, the sleeve allows heat to dissipate, does
not immobilize the joints and remains in position as swelling
decreases. Because Equiflexsleeve has no adjustable straps or
fasteners, the element of human error in application is removed.
The sleeve comes in seven sizes fitting both front and hind legs and
is available in eight colors (black, navy, charcoal gray, hunter
green, light blue, royal purple, pink and white).
The sleeve is comparable in pricing to traditional wraps.
Made in America, Equiflexsleeve is knit in North Carolina (Twin City
Knitting) and is packaged in Ohio.

FROM THE INVENTOR
In early 2009, while treating my own
horse’s degenerative suspensory ligament lameness, I set out to
develop a product that would provide him with the support of a
traditional standing wraps without any of the negative side effects
associated with long-term use of those wraps. Working closely
with physicians and equine veterinarians, I was able to produce such
After more than three
years of testing and development, the result is a joint
support/compression sleeve that is comfortable for the horse, can be
used instead of standing wraps and can be used for longer periods of
time than standing wraps.
Although this product was
designed strictly as a replacement for standing wraps, the testing
showed that the majority of horses could wear the sleeves for light
hacks or longe work. You will need to experiment to see how the
sleeve wears on your horse.
