Holistic Equine Therapy: Treating Lactic Acid in High Performance Horses 

Removing lactic acid is the most important thing you’ll do for any athletic horse. They are so full of muscles so lactic acid is a major problem and is the reason race horses and Grand Prix jumpers are not consistent. Once we use the Equi-Stim Leg Saver, we are able to remove the lactic acids and quickly see our horses return back to normal. The Leg Saver works tremendously well, one treatment will get rid of all the lactic acid in your horse. Here is what we do to address equine lactic acid using the Equi-Stim Leg Saver:

Step 1: Attach the Lactic Acid Strap

Attach the lactic acid strap through the buckle on the shoulder strap. 

Run the lactic acid band down the back under the tail back up to the croup.

Step 2: Run Wires and Apply Conductive Gel

Run the wires down from the pocket on the shoulder wrap down through the wire loops on the lactic acid strap. Next, run the red wire to the tail and the white wire to the electrodes under the lactic acid strap. Note that you will be connecting the white wire to the five electrodes in sequence. Apply the electro conductive gel to each of the five pads.

All the problems start or stem from the back end of the horse. Whether your horse’s issues are its tendons, ligaments, knees or ankles, it is all because of the hindquarters. This is why it is so important to treat the back end because if you can keep the back of your horse pain-free and injury free, then the front end will also remain injury free.  

Step 3: Put the Tail Wire into a cup of Conductive Gel

Once the gel has been applied, run the tail wire into a cup of the electro gel and then place it on the tip of the tail. Make sure to separate the hair on the horse’s tail to find the tip. Place the cup on the tip of the tail and bring the tail hair back down. Use tape to secure the cup and wires in place.

Step 4: Run the Final Wire to Spleen Ting Points

For the final wire, you are going to run it to the spleen ting point located on the back of the hoof and secure it in place with velcro. Repeat this process on the other back hoof. The ting points are important because they help the lungs, kidneys and liver, spleen, stomach, large intestine.
