The hock is the most complex joint in the horse's body. This wrap is open over the cap bone, light-weight and is sized and shaped to give full, consistent coverage for optimum therapy. Cold therapy use reduces swelling and heat in both the front and back of the hock. Three broad straps configure the wrap to different sized hocks.
Ice Horse Hock Wraps utilize a patented Propylene Glycol formula which is food grade for quality assurance and non-toxic properties.
