AQHA Wee Feelin Special , AKA “Kiki”
“ During record breaking heat on the first day of the Triple Crown Super Show in Perry, Georgia our mare Kiki stopped sweating. After her youth run, she returned to her stall and went into immediate heat stress and shock. Veterinarian Dr. Eric Johnson quickly acted and got her stabilized. If she were to continue to compete the next two days we had to find a way to cool her down. Immediately we went to the Equi Cool Down booth and purchased a body wrap. It was amazing! We kept her core body temperature down and were able to compete the rest of the weekend.
We won’t go anywhere now without our Equi Cool Down Body Wrap. It was literally a lifesaver, especially for a Florida horse.”
Palm Beach Post: Cooling Products by Equi Cool Down save Logan’s Life
It was just another warm, humid, early fall day in South Florida. Jodie Alvarez and her friend Kaley decided to take their horses on a leisurely trail ride at a nature preserve near their home in Loxahatchee. The relaxing day turned into a nightmare when Alvarez’s Thoroughbred, Logan, collapsed.
Luckily, a quick-thinking neighbor brought her a new horse product designed to quickly cool a horse’s body temperature. Alvarez and her vet credit Equi Cool Down for saving Logan’s life.
For more than just equestrian and human athletes, our cooling products offer incredible benefits for those with medical conditions, such as heart issues, anhidrosis, and more.
Pro Equine Grooms: A Community for Grooms, about Grooms, and by Grooms
Grooms and horse owners face a few major obstacles during their daily barn routine: Dirt and sweat. We also need to contend with taking care of our horses, in all sorts of weather and conditions. We are responsible for cooling them out. We are responsible for taking care of their tendons after exercise. We need to help them normalize their body temperatures in some conditions. Then, and only then, do we tend to our own needs. (Which, by the way, are similar to the horse’s needs, we just come second.)
The entire Equi Cool Down Line of cooling products will help you do those things (for your and your horse). I’ll go ahead and tell you that the line of products is vast, and the technology is awesome and the price points are Groom friendly.
The Equine Insider puts ECD to the test!
It can be hard to beat the summer heat, especially when you spend most of your time at the barn or in the saddle. Access to a freezer or fridge can be hard to come by, and many cooling products for horse or rider require refrigeration or freezing of the materials first.
Equi Cool Down line of cooling products are different, though: all that’s necessary to activate the product’s cooling properties is to get it wet. The water doesn’t even have to be cold – according to Equi Cool Down, the “patent-pending textile technology uses an advanced hyper-evaporative material. When activated, the [material] will drop up to 22 degrees colder than the outside temperature…The cooling effect can last for hours!”

Elite Equestrian Cooling Products Review of Equi Cool Down
Jacksonville, FL (February 3, 2014) – As most equestrians know, when their horses give their best, whether inside the show ring, in a training arena, or out on the trail, they usually work up quite a sweat. And just like human athletes, horses deserve a well-earned break and way to cool down and relax after a hard work out. However, for horses, the chance to cool down isn’t just something they enjoy, it’s something they absolutely need. Now it is easier than ever for equine athletes to get the cool relief they need thanks to an innovative new line of cooling products from Equi Cool Down. These amazing products are made from a patent-pending textile technology that uses an advanced hyper-evaporative material. When activated by applying water, the wrap will drop up to 22 degrees colder than the outside temperature, providing for gradual, non-invasive cooling.

I just wanted to let you know that both myself and my horse Spider use your products and absolutely love them. I am a migraine sufferer so the headband is a great product for me on the hot summer days. We compete in rodeo so I need to be on the top of my game if we want to be successful. We travel all over Ontario so it is imperative that Spider cools down quickly after his barrel race because I am loading him back on to the trailer to head down the road to the next one. I can get into a list of his accomplishments in detail if you would like but he is a 3-time Ontario RAM Rodeo Ladies Barrel Racing Champion, 2-time Qualifier to the Canadian Cowboys Association Rodeo Finals in Regina, Saskatchewan-(finishing second once), multiple time RAM Rodeo finals qualifier. We have a tack shop that stocks your product. And we would be more than happy to endorse/promote your product. I also have my next up and coming horse on your products as well.
“Being from Florida and as hot as it gets here it’s always been a concern for me as a horse owner and trained Vet tech to always be careful of my horses horses getting to hot I have seen horse drop and not get back up just from being to hot. Just like a lot of horse owners I am always looking for best product that works the best for me and my horses and gives the best results. It has been hard trying to find something that will help my horses through the heat I have tried so many different products and the one that has worked best for me and my team was the Equi Cool Down leg wraps once I put them on my horse was feeling better he was cooling down nice and easy after working hard at the rodeo. You could tell he was loving the refreshing feel of it.”
