One of my go-to products for Spice over the last several years was the Leovet Thermo-Massage Gel. As an older horse in full work with a long back, I tried to take good care of his topline. Every ride (especially before hard work, lessons, or winter rides) I would massage this gel into his lumbar area before work. It really seemed to help loosen him up a bit before rides.
It’s not sticky, smells nice, is easy to apply and a little goes a long way (spreads easily on hair and doesn’t clump or stick). It gives a nice warming sensation, but not a long term burning, so it’s safe to use under tack. It’s a mild warm up and perfect before rides (and to add a little pony pampering to your routine).
I absolutely love this product, and though it’s not an exciting one with lots of bells and whistles and before and after photos, I wanted to share it with you as a product worth using!
