Research shows that rising summer temperatures can create heat stress for your horses, potentially leading to heat stroke, a life threatening condition in horses. Most of this research and related articles address how to identify and relieve heat stress in horses. Rather than reacting to the effects of heat stress, the Equine Koozie is intended to prevent Heat Stress in horses before it becomes a problem.
Using the patented three-layer Hydroweave technology, Equine Koozie is the easiest, safest way to help minimize heat stress. Developed by equine enthusiasts for their own horses, the Equine Koozie works by absorbing sweat (a horse's natural cooling mechanism) and transferring heat from the horse through the fabric's inner core to the outer core, where it is evaporated, thus reducing the animal's internal temperature. The Equine Koozie is worn as a vest covering the chest area, where the horse's vital organs are located and where relief is most needed. It is pre-soaked in water for a few moments before use and works for up to six hours afterward. Simply re-soak for a few moments, and it is good to go all over again.

The Equine Koozie is a common sense approach to prevent heat stress. The Equine Koozie can be used anytime, such as when transporting, riding, exercising, stalling as well as for alleviating the stress and excessive sweating associated with medical/dental procedures.
