Oh MY GOSH, I FOUND A GREAT NEW PRODUCT for those of us in hot climates! LOVE LOVE LOVE ‘EQUI COOL DOWN’!






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

These are the items I received, plus the booklet. I have a beanie, a towel (they loved) and a head/neck band which I loved and so did my farrier.

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!

Cathy has on the beanie and the towel, Alice is wearing my neck/headband. Just wet, wring, snap and go! So awesome!

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 farrier came today and he tested my neckband. He would not give it back. It is now his.

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!

Yes!

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.

    Hey readers! So sorry for the glitch!

    We are very happy to give you a 15% discount using the code “horseandman.com”….and we’ll give a 5% donation from every sale to the bucket fund as an additional bonus. We were trying to set this up as quickly as possible – but it created a bit of a glitch that has hopefully been made well (including fixing Met’s order). It was all with the best of intentions :)

    Thank you for the super review! Please remember to check out our equine line as well – our products have been on the market and tested true for over 4 years now. And we love to hear back from our customers either through our website reviews or on our Facebook page (equicooldown).

    “Coolest” regards,
    Jennifer, Equi Cool Down

    Reply to what person directly? Below was your comment, and no person was named. I am in touch with “Sales” and she has said they will give me a refund on my PayPal charge. But of course I haven’t seen that yet. Maybe it’s too much work for this company. I am really unhappy with their “customer service.”

    “Met: This is the reply I received when I gave them your experience. Please contact this person directly

    It worked for her before they realized that they gave us a code dedicated to another source… so that sale
    was credited to another source – which is fine.

    PS: Why did the “incorrect code” work for Amy M? Or is she a company employee?

  6. dawndi Post author

    Met: What a mess! I am in contact with the person who initially gave me the incorrect code and I’m trying
    to get them to fix this. We did get a new code, as you know, but I have asked them to retroactively give the discount
    to those who ordered in good faith. I am sorry this happened.

  7. Met

    Well, I did hear from the company. Pretty lame. They said the new code now works. Of course, I already ordered and paid full price. I wrote back and asked if they were going to refund me 15%. Haven’t heard back. I’m guessing I won’t.

    I was going to let my horse-owning friends know about this product, but I’m thinking I won’t based on the company’s behavior around this issue. I’m pretty disgusted.

  8. dawndi Post author

    I am so sorry. They got their wires crossed and gave us the incorrect code.
    I was now given ‘horseandman.com” as the code, but I don’t know if it gives a discount
    or gives a percentage to the Bucket Fund… So sorry! But the products are great with or without
    a code.

    Second time trying to comment. I ordered two of these products today but the coupon code didn’t work. What showed up when I tried was “•Coupon “ckenyon3″ does not exist!” I contacted the company to complain.

  10. Amy M

    Wow, this is awesome. I have a horse that doesn’t sweat well, and maybe this would be a good way to help keep him cool. I wonder if he could wear the neck one as we ride?

    Just got some human products to try before investing in the horse ones. Fingers crossed!
