Liniments & Poultices for Horses 

                Horses are prone to receive injuries and develop aches and pains over time, especially if they are racing horses. Due to all the stress their bodies are put through during those races like any living being wear and tear to the body and age will most like develop an ache here or there. When it comes to injury a good rule of thumb is cold treatment for fresh trauma and as a preventative therapy after heavy work and heat treatment for arthritis and older, set injuries that are cold to the touch. Liniments are designed to provide temporary relief to minor aches and pains often associated with arthritis and overworked muscles. Poultices usually provide temporary cold therapy for inflamed tissues and are commonly clay based.

Liniments are a common substance used by trainers and owners of horses. They may be applied diluted or full-strength, usually added into a bucket of water when sponged on the body. Liniments are especially useful in hot weather to help a hot horse cool down: the alcohols help the product to quickly evaporate, and the oils they contain cause the capillaries in the skin to dilate, also increasing the cooling process. Liniments should always be applied according to the manufacturer's directions, and diluted as necessary. Many horse owners apply liniments to the legs as a brace, and then wrap over it. In this case, they should be sure that the liniment is not too strong, or it may cause blistering of the skin. Liniments may be used on the legs and body, but should not be applied to more sensitive areas such as the head, genitals or groin of the horse. The body may also be too sensitive to apply liniments if the horse was recently body-clipped.
