Frequently asked questions

Are Equi-N-icE and Equinice products the same thing?
Yes. The official name of the product range is Equi-N-icE however, some of our customers and stockists use Equinice for simplicity. All packaging uses the proper title Equi-N-icE.

Is it safe to use Equi-N-icE products on competition horses?
Yes. Horses who have had Equi-N-icE applied have been consistently blood and urine tested whilst using the product under British Jockey Club rules.

Can we use Equi-N-icE with any bandage?
No. Our bandage is made from special 100% undyed cotton, which has its own natural elasticity, so compression can be applied during application. Do not use on a bandage that has elasticity in it as this could dry and tighten and damage legs. 

Can I safely leave the bandage on for more than two hours?

Yes. The bandage will eventually dry out and the bandage can be safely left on for support overnight. 

Can I cover the Equi-N-icE bandage?

No, because Equi-N-icE works by rapid evaporation, any covering will reduce the cooling effect.

Is the Rapid Cooler OK to use under another rug?

By covering the Cooler you will stop evaporation occurring but adding a layer of the Hi Tec Sports fabric will help keep the horse temperate while traveling.

Can I use the Rapid Cooler Rug for a long trip without recharging?

Yes once the Rapid Cooler has cooled the horse the rug will help maintain a cool temperature while traveling or standing in a hot environment.

Can I wash the Equi-N-icE bandage?

Yes. Wash it as you would any normal cotton bandage, in a warm wash.  

Is it easy to wash and dry the Rapid Cooler?

Yes just cool machine wash and line dry.
