FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE Canada Knows Cold: Canadian Equestrian Team Selects Ice Horse Cold Therapy The Canadian Equestrian Team (CET) is pleased to announce they have selected MacKinnon Products’ Ice Horse as their official cold therapy treatment for the 2015 Pan American Games to be held in Toronto July 12-26. “We were thrilled to have received a call from one of the team veterinarians in late spring,” said Julie Garella, Ice Horse CEO. “They let us know the team had tried a couple of Ice Horse products at the 2014 World Equestrian Games in France. So good were the results, that the CET decided to use an assortment of products from Big Black Boots to Back Blankets while training for, and competing at, the upcoming games.” Canadian Eventing team veterinarian, Dr. Christiana Ober speaks to the benefits of Ice Horse products, “The Ice Horse products are an integral part of our preventive maintenance and soundness program. We use them after gallops and hard schools to prevent inflammation in legs and joints. We have used the boots religiously leading up to and during the TORONTO 2015 Pan American games. I believe in these products and their ability to alleviate inflammation.” About Ice Horse: For over 15 years Ice Horse has been the trusted name in cold therapy for horses and riders. The products feature inserts which when frozen turn to soft fluffy snow, mold to the horse legs and stay cold for over two hours. To learn more visit www.icehorse.net.
