Magnetic Rugs?!?!
Hey guys im new here,
i was wondering do magnetic rugs such as dick wicks work, my horse has a bad back which gets sore and affects her jumping and when she trots her hind legs dont trot through enough, her back muscles get knotted and we have to keep getting the chiropractor out to fix her :cry: .
So are magnetic rugs worth the money?

thnx luvs BKWhisper

Have you consulted a vet? There may be much more effective options.

no i asked the chiropractor wot i shld do nd he sed to wash electric soda over her back each day nd massage her before nd after i ride.
i thought that if i get the rug and keep doing wot i was doing it wld just help a little bit more
but only if the rug actually worked

watch your text language.

Anyways, i think i agree with everyone else consult your vet and ask him/her about it, but yes it would br a good idea to have your horse on the magnestic rug and the soda power (thingy lol), because then you know that its "definatelt" helping.

It amazes me that more horses that are forced to jump don't have more back problems. This is not a natural movement for them. Someone said on another post " food ,water. shelter and grooming isn't the only thing that constitutes animal abuse".
