Product Description

Quick Chill Cooling Rug for Horses from Equilibrium
The perfect solution to cool the temperature of your horse. This advanced rug utilises water-activated conduction technology to draw heat away from your horses’ body, promoting optimal comfort and cooling during warm weather.

Ideal for:

  • Cooling your horse down without the need to get them soaking wet.
  • Warm competition days to gently cool your horse before, in between or after classes.
  • Horses who get hot when/after travelling.
  • Horses who don’t like the hose, or the feeling of running water.
  • Yards or remote locations where running water may be limited.
  • Training sessions, competitions, or arena hires where access to running water is limited.
  • Countries or areas where hose pipe bans may be enforced.

How the Quick Chill Rug works:
Designed with your horses’ wellbeing in mind, the Quick Chill rug provides a refreshing cooling effect without the need for traditional soaking.

The rug is made from a high tech, breathable open cell structure material, which is designed to effectively absorb and store water. This material has been chosen for its ability to retain water, but also to allow the water molecules to move through the fabric easily. The rug should be fully submerged in a bucket of water, or thoroughly soaked. Once removed from the bucket, wring out the excess water and place onto the horse. The water stored within the fabric is essential for the cooling process, but due to it being held within the fabric, it will stop your horse from getting soaking wet.

How it Works

2. Heat transfer, evaporative cooling and breathability.
Your horse will be warmer than the rug, and so the thermal energy will move via conduction from
the hottest place (the horse) to the cooler place (the rug) to equalise temperatures. The water from
the rug also evaporates into the atmosphere to further aid cooling, similar to what happens when
your horse sweats to naturally attempt to cool themselves down.
The cooling area of the rug is contoured and shaped so that it covers the large muscle groups across
the back and hindquarters with direct contact, and the remainder of the rug is mesh to allow it to
remain lightweight for use in the summer, but also to remain well-ventilated to facilitate
breathability and evaporation to further aid the cooling process.
3. Reusability
This process helps regulate the horses body temperature while providing a cooling sensation without
soaking the horse. The rug can be reactivated as many times as it is needed by re-soaking it in water,
making it an environmentally friendly solution to keep horses cool in warm conditions.

Info and Care

How to use the Quick Chill Cooling Rug:
Simply submerge the cooling rug in a bucket of water until it is fully saturated, before wringing it out
as an effective way to cool your horse down without soaking them.
If you have limited access to water, you can activate the rug as above where you have running water
(i.e. at home or the stables), before placing it into a plastic bag and taking it with you to where it is
needed. The rug will stay activated in this environment for the rest of the day.
Alternatively, sprinkle water from a hose or bottle of water onto the rug, wring out the excess water
and then put on your horse.
We recommend monitoring the temperature of the outside of the rug by feel to ensure it is removed
when it feels warm. It can then either be reactivated in water to be used again straight away or left
to dry out.
Care should be taken in humid climates and the rug should be checked more often, as humidity can
affect the process of evaporation in general, from the rug or even on an un-rugged horse.

How do I care for the Quick Chill Rug?
Machine washable at 30 degrees, so you can quickly and easily clean your rug.
