Hello from frozen Louisville-
I’ve had remarkable results lately from the Niagara Equissage system, sold in the US by Equine Products, LLC.
I have personally seen improvements of 10-15+ Beyer points through the proper use of this tool. The system delivers cycloidal massage to performance horses with the use of a saddle-like back pad and hand unit that works with a leg/tendon boot.
In the US thoroughbreds are often not given an appropriate warm up prior to loading in the gate. Use of the Niagara Equissage system within the hour just prior to the post parade has proven to dramatically improve racing performance.
The system improves circulation, joint range of motion, and the respiratory processes. The horse experiences relaxed musculature, tension release, and enhanced lymphatic system performance.
Use pre and post exercise, both during training and racing. Many large racing stables I work with send grooms to the track and fail to use this valuable tool properly, don’t make that mistake!-
