Horse poultices and clays are ideal for use in standing wraps to comfort tired legs after strenuous exercise, to draw out swelling, or to help treat injuries.
Horse poultices are an excellent way to help heal the body.
Horse poultices can be used to reduce swelling in the legs after strenuous exercise or to draw out heat from injury. Poulticing a leg or hoof can pull toxins from the body and reduce inflammation and help healing. Using a poultice is perfect to improve circulation and blood flow and bring healing to the legs and hooves. A properly applied poultice packed firmly around the injury or desired location for healing will bring relief. The mixture is then wrapped or covered with fabric, plastic or another barrier and left in place for a specific length of time to allow the poultice to work. The reduction in swelling or healing and drop in temperature and lowered heat indicates that the poultice has done its job. Pack the hoof to help aid in healing from stone bruises and other damage.
Horse clay provides aid in healing the body and helps to reduce swelling.
Horse clay is similar to a poultice with the consistency of hard-packed mud. Horse clay is used to fill the hoof prior to wrapping or can be molded around a joint or other part of the leg to draw out heat and toxins. Applying a wrap to the area after the horse clay is added is necessary to keep the mixture in place and allow it to work. The horse clay or poultice is designed to reduce swelling, increase circulation, remove toxins and allow the area to heal. Horze offers poultices and clays for many conditions.
