ENDURANCE RIDING AND ARABIAN THOROUGHBREDS
The original nature and characteristics of a horse are best represented in Endurance Riding. With a healthy horse, the goal is to ride a long distance (up to 160 kilometres) which equals the classic 100 miles in one day.
The horse is constantly monitored by a veterinarian and only horses who have passed the vet exam without any issues are allowed to continue the endurance competition. Endurance riding is exceptionally demanding for both the horse and rider, but it is also a total partnership experience for a rider and horse in open nature. Thoroughbred Arabians are often used for this purpose.
The thoroughbred’s equestrian domain, this breed has also been tried and tested in trail riding, Western and gallop. Thoroughbred Arabians are not only wonderful show horses, but a horse known for its close relationship between rider and horse. This breed boasts exceptional intelligence, toughness, ability to recover, loyalty and sensitivity. The thoroughbred turns the riding sport into an elegant and elitist experience.
Whether you use the cooling on the legs of your “distance specialist” during the mandatory stop-overs as a preventative measure – keep your horse fresh – address an acute or abating injury or if your partner “the horse” wants a refreshing wellness chill-out, the cooling boots with the emcools HypoCarbon® cooling technology is wonderful for this.
Although it has been proven that cryotherapy achieves very good treatment results in both humans and horses, this effective treatment is still underused in equestrian sports. Cryotherapy used on a regular basis is a simple way to keep the horse fresh, fit and healthy.
