Combining cold packs and vibration, rechargeable ICE-VIBE Boots boost circulation for the optimal care of your horse’s legs. Use these boots to prepare for exercise and reduce risk of injury, treat soreness and swelling, and repair daily wear and tear. Set the automatic timer, and you’re free to accomplish other tasks while your horse receives treatment. Each pack contains two ICE-VIBE boots, two cold packs, two vibrating panels, two batteries, one battery charger and three adapters for universal use. PREPARE: Prior to exercise, use ICE-VIBE Boots with only the vibration pads to increase blood flow to tendons and ligaments, making them more elastic which can help reduce risk of injury. TREATMENT: It is important when looking after your horse’s legs to reduce soreness and swelling, but encourage blood flow for healing. After exercise you can use the vibrating boots with the inner cold packs creating cold circulation. This cools the legs, reducing soreness while maintaining blood flow so you can assist the healing process..) REPAIR: On an automatic timer, these boots allow you to assist your horse to repair wear and tear while in the stable or out in the field, both before and after exercise. Do not use boots on fracture or infections. If your horse has sensitive legs, especially horses with white socks that may be clipped, we recommend leaving the cold packs out of the freezer for 5 minutes before use or using them from a refrigerator. Alternatively, use a thin wrap on your horse’s legs before applying cold packs. ICE-VIBE has three optimal settings for different treatments. Level 1: Treatment of soreness and swelling. Use with or without cold packs. Level 2: Boosts circulation with or without the use of cold packs. To prepare legs for exercise, use this setting without cold packs. Level 3: Strongest setting cold therapy after exercise to repair wear and tear.

How to Estimate Your Horse's Boot Size
Most boots come in small, medium and large sizes; a few manufacturers offer boots to fit ponies and extra-large horses. Generally, the height, weight and breed of your horse and leg circumference will provide an estimation of the appropriate boot size to try on your horse if a size chart is not available from a particular boot manufacturer.

If you have a small horse with refined bones, perhaps a large pony or Arabian that weighs less than 1,000 pounds, you'll probably need small-sized horse boots. Many horses require a smaller size boot on their front limbs and one size larger boot on their hind limbs.

Most Thoroughbreds of average bone and an average height of about 16 hands will require large boots, while Warmbloods and sport type horses may need large or even extra large boots. Horses that fall into the middle categories of medium-sized boots will be Quarter Horse and Morgan types standing anywhere from 15.1 to 15.3 hands, along with fine-boned and smaller Thoroughbreds.

How to Check the Fit of Horse Boots
With straps fastened snugly but not over-tightened, you should be able to slide one finger between the protective boot and the horse's leg. Your finger should feel snug between the two surfaces. If the boot is too big or too loose, dirt can get inside and cause abrasions. Or, the boot can slide down and disrupt your horse's movements. If the boot is too tight, it can damage your horse's tendons.

The length of a boot on your horse's front leg should not be so long that it rises to the back of your horse's knee and interferes with normal joint movement. On both front and hind legs, the boot should be long enough to cover most of the cannon bone area and the inside of the fetlock.
