So, remember last week when I said that if you have a great product that you manufacture or have a great ‘find’ that you use and love, to tell me?…
Well, I received 3 items from a reader. She represents EQUI COOL DOWN. The items are rapid cool down towels, blankets and wraps for horses and for humans.
OK, so I told her that I would diligently use the products, but would not guarantee a review unless I really loved them…
…and I LOVE THEM!
I only used the human products, but I am going to purchase more human products AND the neck wrap/leg wraps for my older horses, for sure.
Here’s why –
— Really easy to use
–They work really well
HOW I TESTED THEM
It is hot here. Africa hot. I hate to go outside after 11am. This makes me sad. You see, if I go out in the heat and work, I generally feel like throwing up once I’m done. I lay on my bed like a fish and gasp for air.
Can you imagine how your horse feels after working in the heat? Oy. Or just standing around in the heat. Ugh.
OK, so what I did was pass these items around to our friends who were staying for the weekend and wanted to go to the Fair. The last thing we wanted to do was go to the dusty MidState Fair in 104 degree weather…
But we went. I could not think of a better, more miserable testing ground…
I had the neck/head band, my friend had the towel and her daughter wore the beanie.
OHMYGOSH I cannot tell you how well they worked – it was unbelievable! All you do is wet them, wring them out and wave or snap them in the air. That’s it. Put them on and they felt icy cold for a long time. Once the items returned to room temperature, we’d just snap them again and they were good as new! If the product started to dry out, we’d pop into a bathroom and re-wet them, wring them and snap!
SAVED us! We were totally comfortable walking around the hot, dusty Fair.
Unbelievable. I could have sold a million of them at the Fair. Everyone who saw it – wanted it. I wore my neck/headband under my hat, so I know it would fit under a helmet. Same with the beanie.
My friends would not part with the towel and beanie – they took the items home with them.
So now I only have the head/neckband… except… I gave that to my farrier today. I am ordering more!
WORKING HORSES, OLDER HORSES… WORKING PEOPLE, OLDER PEOPLE…! My farrier took mine home!
So, I am fairly certain these items would be GREAT for working horses. Or just standing horses who have to endure heat. Or, older horses who have a tough time in the heat. There are several different types of equine products – leg, neck, body… click here to learn more.
Today the farrier came and I had him try my neck/head band. He was skeptical … but he LOVED it. I had to give it to him, he loved it so much. And, I figured he deserved it after trimming 7 or my horses in this heat.

The wonderful reader who works closely with the company and contacted me – said that if I liked the product and reviewed it, she would offer a discount to Horse and Man readers!
I recommend that you get the human neck/head band or the towel – so inexpensive for such heat relief! My friend loved the towel because it had more surface area (you could use any type of chipbag clip or safety pin to keep it around your neck). I liked the neckband. So did my farrier.
For horses, I would start with the neckwrap, but the body wrap look amazing for a working horse or older horse. I’m pretty sure any horse would love any product.
