Following on from the popularity of Pippin’s Pick last month, Pippin has again put his nose to good use to seek out his favourite winter rug, as featured in the October issue.
It was a tough selection this month, but it was the bigger the better for Pippin and his curiosity kept leading him back to the box of Horseware products, and on closer inspection (and after a very vigorous sniff), he decided the Rambo Ionic Stable Sheet Therapy rug was his pick!
Rambo Ionic stable sheet
Sizes: 3’9” – 7’3”
Colours: Black, Black and Orange
RRP: £135.95 – £163.95
Crafted from ring-spun polyester with moisture management technology, the inner fabric of the Rambo Ionic stable sheet is printed with unique Rambo Ionic technology – which offers the benefits associated with the crystal Tourmaline, in a powdered form. Tourmaline is a naturally occurring crystal and when ground down to powder form, it releases an electric charge that converts the surrounding air molecules to negative ions.
When applied to this stable sheet and worn by the horse, Tourmaline releases negative ions that cause a change in the water in the horses body, increasing blood flow to important areas such as the muscles. In turn, this brings increased levels of oxygen to the muscles and helps to clear toxins from the body.
The fabric of the rug is highly wicking and durable so the rug can be used while traveling, in the stable, as well as before and after exercise to promote the wellbeing of the horse. Ideal for use before exercise to prepare muscles for work, and after, to help reduce any lactic acid build up caused by exercise, the technology also helps to reduce blood pressure, restore pH balance, strengthen the immune system, stimulate metabolism and increase circulation as well as increase oxygen delivery to cells and tissue.
With a classic cut, this rug offers complete freedom of movement and features double front closures cross surcingles and a fillet string.
In addition to the stable sheet, Horseware Products also produce the Rambo Ionic stableboots, which feature a neoprene outer with a removable insert made with polycotton fabric and again, printed with Rambo Ionic technology. For use while horses are travelling or in the stable, the removable liners help to promote circulation and offer horses similar benefits as the sheet, providing a ‘whole body’ effect for those who choose to use both. The therapy boots are available in sizes full and extra full, with an RRP of £93.95.
