AeroChill Cooling Rug
This cooling rug has been created to aid cooling of the horse after exercise, helping to alleviate heat exhaustion and assist muscle recovery. The fabric of the rug is designed to pull heat from the horse (a process know as evaporative cooling). To use the rug simply pour water over the rug and place straight onto the horse. For the rug to keep providing an evaporative effect it must be kept wet.
+ 900-denier fabric (air blown to achieve a tighter weave using less yarn) offering a durable, breathable and lightweight finish.
+ front buckle fastening with belly strap, cross surcingles and fillet string to ensure the rug stays in place whilst on the horse.
+ comes complete with an Aerochill cool bag
How does it work?
The AeroChill Cooling Rug works using evaporative cooling.
How to use
When to Apply: Use the AeroChill Cooling rug straight after exercise/competition and walk the horse off either in hand, on a horse walker or whilst grazing in hand. Leave the rug on the horse for 25 – 35 mins after which you can return to your normal regime. If you wish to reapply the rug after this period of time simply wet the rug again to activate.
Activation: The AeroChill cooling rug needs two elements to work correctly – water and airflow. When using the rug for the first time place the whole rug in a bucket of water for 10 – 15 mins before use. For all future uses place the whole rug in a bucket of water (or use the AeroChill bag included with the rug) for 2 – 5 mins. Squeeze the water out of the rug so that its is still wet but not dripping with water then place on the horse ensuring the chest buckle and all straps are fastened.
The rug is designed to accelerate recovery following exercise through the removal of heat from muscles and lowering heart rate.
The rug comes with a branded AeroChill cool bag featuring two carry handles and a zip fastening. The bag can be filled with water for soaking the rug and can also be used to with the AeroChill Cooling boots.
There are 2 sizes of rug to choose from:
S/M (covering rug sizes 5’9 – 6’3)
Large (covering rug sizes 6’6 – 6’9).
