HOW IT WORKS
Massage therapy is one of the oldest known methods of therapy and is renowned for its ability to promote healing. Massage can help to reduce stiffness and soreness and support blood supply to muscles.
Sportz-Vibe’s massage action is gentle enough that it won’t over work your horse’s muscles but will help to reduce muscle tension. The massage panels are removable which allow you to target specific areas.

A horse rug is an essential part of caring for your horse and a rug that fits correctly is key to protect your horse and keep them safe and comfortable.
Measuring your horse
Feet and Inches
To measure your horse, use a soft tape measure and measure from the centre of the chest to the end of the buttocks.
To measure your horse for a rug with European sizing (cm) measure from the withers, across the back to the top of the tail.
Fitting a rug
The rug should fit well over the withers and the shoulders so that the horse can move freely without the rug slipping back.
The straps should be tight enough to hold the rug in place, but not so tight that they cause the rug’s shape to distort on the horse’s back. If too tight they may cause pressure points around the horse’s chest and wither area.
Cross surcingles should be fastened so you can fit a hand’s breadth between the surcingles and the horse’s body. This means that the straps are tight enough to prevent legs becoming caught should the horse lie down, but not so tight to cause discomfort.
If the rug has leg straps, they should be fastened so that the left strap is passed around the left hind leg and fastened back to the left side. The right strap should then pass around the right hind leg, loop through the left strap, and then fasten to the right side. There should be about 4-5” between the strap and the horse’s leg to prevent the rug slipping without causing the horse any discomfort.
