Cryochaps are innovative ice boots for horses designed to ice the legs after exercise or injury in order to aid recovery.

By capturing the power of ice bath therapy in a simple and effective leg wrap, these ice boots provide the ideal post-race cool-down. Highly portable, Cryochaps are great for endurance rides.


Cryochaps horse ice boots are designed to replicate ice bath therapy used for human athletes. Ice therapy is thought to reduce the pain and swelling associated with trauma after exercise and helps to initiate healing. Hence, cooling after exercise with ice cold water is already used to aid recovery in human athletes.

Your horse is an athlete too! So, after intense exercise, cooling the legs with our cooling boots for horses may promote a faster recovery and better performance for the next ride. Cryochaps address the heat build up and inflammatory response with cooling and compression.

Endurance riders spend time and effort constructing specific fitness programs for competition so, why not introduce Cryochaps to that regime as part of your horse’s routine cool down?


Exercise is said to cause tiny tears in tissues, including muscle, tendons and ligaments. This is known as micro trauma. However, rapidly reducing tissue temperatures after exercise has three main impacts:

  • Constricts the blood vessels. This flushes waste products, such as lactic acid, out of the affected tissues.
  • Decreases metabolic activity. This slows down the physiological processes that cause inflammation.
  • Reduces swelling and tissue breakdown.

After Cryochaps are removed, the legs begin to warm up again. Consequently, the blood vessels vasodilate, which increases blood flow and delivers oxygen to help kick start the healing process. It also flushes out unwanted waste, which accelerates the healing process. 

Evidence from studies in humans suggests that a water temperature of less than 10 degrees celsius and an immersion time of 10-15 minutes demonstrated the best results. Whilst most of us don’t have the facilities to quickly put together an ice bath for a 400kg horse, Cryochaps ice boots for horses have been designed to recreate this ice bath environment. Compared to many other ice boots, Cryochaps have unrivalled cold transfer, which is enabled by the ice wraps having a great fit and contact to the horses leg using both ice and compression, so adding the benefit of compression over and above the ice bath environment. Cryochaps are designed to cover all the major tendons and ligaments in the lower leg.

Ice and compression after exercise has been found to:

  • Improve Recovery
  • Reduce Inflammation
  • Reduce Tendon Temperatures

With Cryochaps, your horse can benefit from cold therapy after every training session or race! All you have to do is wrap, strap and leave on for 10-15 minutes.


The boots fit horses and ponies from 13hh to 17.2hh. Front (M) | Hind (L).

Sold as pairs.
