BUCAS Bucas Therapy Cooler
- How to fit a Horse Rug
Bucas Therapy Cooler
(No neck included)
The Bucas Therapy range helps to prevent numerous problems and also helps in the treatment of a vast array of ailments.
The Therapy material is made from an extremely fine, stainless steel mesh so it reflects the magnetic fields created inside the body. This in turn stimulates blood circulation and oxygen flow in the horse’s body and back, which heals and reduces both swelling and inflammation and promotes faster healing.
It can be left on your horse for 24 hours, 7 days a week if necessary as it is NOT a magnetic rug, but it is advised to slowly increase and monitor the use of the Bucas Therapy rug when first used. As the properties in the material help warm up the muscles some horse may sweat after long periods of use. It’s great to use when travelling as it helps keep the muscles warm which helps warm up at a show quicker and for use travelling home as it will help recovery of muscles after work.
Bucas Therapy rug is the ideal choice for helping horses including those with back problems or who are a little slow to warm up when riding. It also has been known to accelerate the recovery process of some aliments, and all of this in a natural environment.
The Therapy properties cannot be washed out. The rug can be washed up to 100 times at 40°C and it will still hold its properties, unlike many other therapy rugs currently on the market.
The rug comes with front and rear attachments which means the rug can be attached to any Bucas rug which has the combi neck attachment points. The Therapy rug can be attached and start working under your horse’s stable rug or while they graze in the paddock under their turnout rug.
Horse Rug Size Guide:
The fit of your rug is extremely important to ensure the comfort of your horse and to prevent rubbing and rug slippage. As horses of the same height at the wither come in a variety of shapes and sizes, it is useful to take certain measurements of your horse.
Using a soft measuring tape, measure from (A) at the center point of the chest, across the point of the shoulder and to the point (B) at the center of the tail. When you have the measurement, remove 10cm (4inches) and choose your horse’s size from the size guide table. Bear in mind that every horse is different and that this table is a guide only.
Horseware® rugs come in a variety of weights. To make it easy, we’ve created this little temperature scale. It explains the weight available for each rug and is located under each product section.
A turnout rug acts as a waterproof insulator layer, helping to maintain condition in cold weather. However be aware that conditions may vary in a short time span. Always ensure your horse is comfortable at all times.
What rug suits my horse?
For a deep shouldered horse with a deep neck and wide build you would need the XL cut, which is 20% deeper in the neck and sides to give them room, or you could choose the Optimo style rugs which have the ultimate freedom of movement.
For a deep shouldered, narrow horse you would be advised to have a Surefit design with V-Front closure.
For an average build of horse, go with a classic neck cut or if you prefer to give them more comfort again, a V-Front fit would suit.
For high withered narrow horses a Wug® helps to reduce the wither pressure. For very narrow or young horses the Wug® or All-In-One design rugs are good choices to help fit their shape and prevent the rugs from slipping.
