Naturally, all this hard work left Blue a bit of a sweaty betty and with some tired muscles. This was the perfect time to put Horsehealth.co.uk muscle slosh to the test. It’s a liquid body wash for your horse with a difference; the blend of ingredients and essential oils help to stimulate blood flow, supporting relief of stiffness and inflammation whilst it cleans. Think Radox for horses!
- Add 15ml to a gallon bucket of water, hot or cold.
- Sponge on where required. I paid particular attention to the limbs and areas of potential muscle fatigue like the hind quarters.
- It contains a green soap concentrate which cleans off any sweaty patches, and leaves the coat with a high shine. I found it was brilliant for getting rid of dust and scurfy patches which didn’t come off with grooming. The joys of having a field kept horse!
- The blend of essential oils get to work on the muscles and leave them invigorated. The mix of cedarwood, rosemary and thyme combine to provide anti-inflammatory, antiseptic, antibacterial and pain relieving properties. A perfect all round blend for tired muscles.
- No need to rinse – brilliant! This time of year I wasn’t keen to give him a full on bath, so just used a wet sponge lightly all over the body.
- I finished by rubbing over with a sheepskin grooming mitt to remove any excess water and to polish.
- I left him munching on hay with his LeMieux Thermo Cool rug on to finish the drying process. Note how you can see the water droplets have been wicked away from his skin by the nano fibre material and transported to the outer layer of the rug!
It’s an inexpensive, multipurpose product which will now become a tack room essential for me. Blue’s coat was lovely and sleek after use, the smell was seriously fresh and invigorating, and he trotted up lovely and supple the next day after work. The rider, however, was sent to the holding box after presenting 2/10ths lame – tempted to steal some for myself next time!
