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 to 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 wash the Equi-N-icE bandage?
Yes. Wash it as you would any normal cotton bandage, in a warm wash.
Can I cover the Equi-N-icE bandage?
No, because Equi-N-icE works by rapid evaporation, any covering is counterproductive.
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.
Is it easy to wash and dry the Rapid Cooler?
Yes just cool machine wash and line dry.
