    Ouch, poor bugger! I can see why you'd want to try everything, I certainly can't see trying a magnetic rug hurting.
    Accupuncture is another one that's pretty popular around here, and I have heard of a lot of people getting great results from it :)

    So the price might give you a heart attack but I've seen these in action and I wouldn't use anything else in the way of a magnetic blanket. It's what the US olympic eventing team uses as well as many top level riders and it's just fabulous.

    We had an OTTB that had track-related injuries, and was also a bit high strung but the moment his owner pulled out his magnetic blanket he would stand patiently to let her put it on. He would then proceed to stand still and drool and would let his manly parts drop and would fall asleep on his feet. Some horses I've seen use it would drool even before the blanket was turned on.

    When you said the price might give me a heart attack I was thinking $5-700, That thing cost almost as much as my car! I'm debating on if I can really even afford the $78 one lol

    I have a BOT saddle pad that my gelding loves and am considering getting one of the blankets as well but the magnetic blankets have peaked my interested.

    As a side note - I have a BOT lap blanket (idk what to call it - it's not big but not small exactly either and it's for people) that doesn't do a darn thing for me. *shrug*

    Going to be honest, there's a reason I don't own one and it's not because I don't think my pony could benefit from it... it's because it costs about as much as my pony did. And lol I bought most of my pony's blankets second hand so most of them didn't even cost $50 The Bio Pulse is something I do intend to have in my arsenal one day but maybe not quite yet. Just thought it might be nice to see the "top of the line" is and see what it does, so maybe you can find something similar for cheap.

    Glad I ran across this post. I was just flipping through a Dover mag earlier and started really thinking about some sort of therapeutic blanket.

    I have a fifteen year old that I've noticed can be just the slightest bit stiff after a super long ride, or a show. Not exactly sore, but he just has to work himself out a little bit before he's fully ready to go. Otherwise he's completely sound all other times.

    I really like the Schneiders sheet. Glad to hear of some definite happiness with horses using similar things.
