“I find the Activo-Med rug hugely benefits the horses’ suppleness and makes the sharper horses quieter and softer to ride. They are all much more relaxed when I first get on them and need much less time to warm up. The margins for error are so slight in show jumping and so having the horses as soft and supple as possible it very important. I definitely feel I get better results from the horses when using the Activo-Med Combi rug and both the horses and I would be lost without it.”
