Reducing the onset of arthritis in horses

Arthritis is one of the most common reasons that horses are retired early. It is believed that early training of young horses can often lead to arthritis in later life. Arthritis can be managed with painkillers, injections and other drugs but surely prevention is the way forward?

There are various ways you can help to prevent or slow down the onset of some forms of arthritis.   Diet, controlled exercise in young horses, thorough recovery time and procedures after exercise, natural supplements to help reduce inflammation in the joints after exercise, AND the Activo-Med equipment!!!

There are many studies of how Pulsed Electromagnetic therapy (PEMF) and massage therapy, plus light or cold laser therapy can both aid in the prevention and slow down the onset of many arthritic cases.

PEMF uses a range of frequencies and intensities to help stimulate different cells in the body, which in turn promotes cell development, efficiency and optimisation. Cold laser therapy (WLP) uses light therapy in addition to PEMF, which, when applied at the correct frequency and wavelength for the correct duration can help stimulate body cells at all depths within the body to rejuvenate and repair.

Please take a look at our list of products above that use these therapies, including the Combi Pro rug, leg wraps and light therapy products.

Wellington Premier League

Wellington Premier League is just around the corner, and the FMBs Team will be available offering free demos of equipment on site all week, so please let us know if you are attending or competing!

We are sponsoring some of the main classes throughout the show, and will be available to discuss our products with you in more depth including the fantastic Activo-Med Water Treadmill and Cold Water Spa, available in the Equine Rebalance Therapy Centre based onsite at Wellington Riding. These therapy products are an invaluable part of keeping competition horses fit and well, or when rehabilitating from injury.

We would also like to offer show sponsorship to one rider at the Premier League, with the opportunity to use the Activo-Med Combi Pro rug throughout the duration of the show, along with a sponsor saddle pad and cap. If you are competing at the show and would like to make use of this offer please get in contact.

We look forward to seeing you all next week!

Demo’s at VOS

During the last week we have had a fantastic trip to World Equestrian Centre Wilmington OH to support one of our Sales Representatives KC Van Aarem while she was there working for David Beisel.

As part of our support to KC we offered free demonstrations and use of the Activo-Med blanket and leg wraps at the show to riders and trainers.  We met a great number of riders and trainers who all enjoyed learning more about how the products can help them and their horses.

Some of the people we were lucky enough to meet included:

Sara Ring and her horse Vos. Vos particularly loved the blanket. Sara said that she could really see how much the mare enjoyed having the therapy session with the blanket.

Rider Patty Stoval and her colleague Sarah Lane were really surprised at how easy the blanket is to use compared to others on the market, noting that it really is lightweight and the horse that received the demonstration did not mind having the blanket on, unlike other blankets.

We also got to meet trainer Hedi De Angelo along with a client of hers, McKenzie Evon. McKenzie had a fantastic show being placed 1st in the Low children’s/Adult Classic along with winning the Taylor Harris National Children’s Medal. All while using the Activo-Med Blanket, McKenzie swore that El Taxi (Pepe) felt more relaxed and happy after a session with the blanket and leg wraps.

Maddi Burchell and Dali LOVE Activo-Med

Maddi Burchell is a Grand Prix rider who is trained by Carl Hester on her own 10 year old PRE Dali. “I absolutely love the results of the Activo-Med rug, Dali’s muscles are softer from the outset. As a rider I can then achieve so much more suppleness and thoroughness in his work, after he has been warmed up using the rug.”

As a Lazer therapist and qualified veterinary thermography I have seen the results of the Activo- Med results compared to many other similar products on the market and so feel totally confident that when I recommend Activo-Med products as a rider and trainer, I also know I am correct fro ma therapists point of view too.

I know that both Carl and Charlotte have been Activo-Med fans from over a decade. My only slight reservation is that I do not have the most up to date model, perhaps I should look at Trading in and Trading Up!

Nick Skelton and Big Star LOVE FMBs Therapy Systems

Celebrating over 8 years of FMBs Therapy Systems’ involvement with Nick Skelton and his top horses including his amazing Olympic Gold Medal winning partner Big Star…

Having been a customer of FMBs Therapy systems for well over eight years, GB Show Jumping team stalwart Nick Skelton understands the benefits that our products can provide for performance horses better than most. With an Activo-Med Cold Saltwater Spa, Activo-Med Therapy Dry Treadmill and Activo-Med Combi-Pro Rug, light therapy unit and leg wraps listed among Nick’s yard essentials, his horses enjoy Therapy treatments daily and in the run up to the 2016 Rio Olympics this obviously included his Rio Olympic Gold Medal winning partner Big Star.

“As everyone knows Big Star and I had a very good year last year culminating in us winning an individual Gold Medal in the Show Jumping out in Rio. I genuinely believe that the Activo-Med products from FMBs Therapy Systems that we used in the lead up to (and since) the Olympics attributed hugely to us getting to Rio allowing us to get our hands on that medal.
In the lead up to Rio, Big Star enjoyed the Combi-Pro rug everyday on the daily pre-set programmes to keep him supple, relaxed and his muscles in top condition. He was also lucky enough to go in our Activo-Med spa daily too. The combination of cold-water and salt provides the ideal environment for injury prevention and for the reduction of any inflammation of the muscles/joints that may occur after exercise allowing his body to recover faster than if he didn’t benefit from the spa. The dry treadmill that we also have on the yard helps all the horses, including Big Star, to build strength, stamina and balance and the gradient controls enabled us to work towards strengthening his back end without putting extra pressure on his body and legs.
I think everyone would agree that Big Star was in the shape, condition and form of his life in Rio and we think that the therapy that the FMBs products deliver had a big part to play in that.”
