The innovation of Bucas: The Therapy rug! The rug is made of Recuptex material. This material acts as a Faraday cage, the upper part of the blanket reflects the magnetic fields in the body. This preservation of the magnetic fields stimulates blood circulation and oxygen supply in the body and back of the horse, which is relaxing for the horse.
The Therapy range has been created to help horses suffering with certain ailments (such as back problems), and prevent issues from developing. Made of extremely fine stainless steel mesh, the Therapy material reflects the magnetic fields within your horse’s body and stimulates blood circulation and oxygen flow. This helps to heal and reduce swelling and inflammation, which makes the therapy range great for warm ups at shows and recovery after work. Bucas therapy rugs are made to last and can be washed up to 100 times without losing any of their effectiveness. Don’t forget we also stock turnout rugs, stable rugs, horse fly sheets and many other horse rugs.
Many riders and amazons are enthusiastic about the blanket, including Mary King, Janne Friederike Meyer-Zimmermann, Therese Nilshagen, and Thomas Carlile!
All of these #TeamBucas riders and Bucas Ambassadors are very enthusiastic about Bucas and its therapy rugs line. We’ve asked some of them for their experiences.
1. What do you like about the Bucas therapy blanket?
The great thing about the Bucas Therapy rug is that you can easily put it on your horse before and/or after the training. In addition, the blanket has a very nice fit, fine closures and stays in place. You can use it for anything!
2. Did you have expectations of the blanket and have they been met?
To be honest, I was quite skeptical about the Bucas Therapy rug at first. I had the opportunity to test the Bucas rug for two weeks. After that, me and my parents were sold. It gives my horses and us so much relaxation.
3. Have you noticed a difference in your horse since you used the rug?
Yes, I notice a clear difference. My mare is a very bloody type and energetic by nature. She is stressed on the wagon and 9/10 times she comes off sweaty. She is also often restless in strange stables during multi-day competitions and has less appetite. When I use the Bucas therapy rug, she is almost stationary on the wagon. We had never believed this beforehand. She was also asleep the last competitions when we arrived in the morning and her appetite was like at home.
4. When to use the Bucas therapy rug?
I mainly use the blanket before and/or after training, during transport and at competitions.
5. Would you recommend the Bucas therapy rug to others? And if so, why?
Yes, we ourselves have benefited greatly from it and seen the result. As a result, I can recommend it to others.
6. What grade would you give the rug? (on a scale of 1 – 10)
9.0. Not 10 because the blanket is probably a bit too cold in winter, and perhaps too hot under another blanket.
