Magnotherapy for Horses
Equine magnotherapy is the application of magnetic fields (magnets), as an aid to maintaining health and assisting the natural healing system. Pain is alleviated, especially in conditions suffering from a lack of circulation with a reduced supply of nutrition and oxygen.
How do Magnets Work?
Magnets work by increasing blood flow around the body helping to promote healing and speed up the recovery process. They are also used to relax your horse’s muscles prior to work and after cooling down to prevent injuries.

A really good way of using magnotherapty for horses is to use horse boots containing magnets. Bioflow boots use neoprene, which is a great material for ordinary riding boots, as it is quite tough an weather-proof. 13 of 13 Amazon customers give this product a five star review.
Bioflow uses multi-directional magnetism. When blood flows beneath this magnetic field, the cells are agitated which provides a beneficial effect to horses.
