The equine muscular system is a complex and fascinating aspect of horse anatomy, playing a pivotal role in movement, support, and overall functionality. In this blog, we will delve into the intricacies of the equine muscular system, exploring its components, functions, and significance in equine health and performance.
We will reflect on the importance of maintaining muscular health and how Gladiator Equine’s range of products can be instrumental in supporting the muscular system, aiding in repair, recovery, and the development of a champion athlete.
Components and Functions of the Equine Muscular System
The equine muscular system is comprised of over 700 individual muscles, each contributing to the various movements and functions of the horse:
- Skeletal Muscles: Enable movement by contracting and relaxing, allowing horses to run, jump, and perform various activities.
- Smooth Muscles: Found in internal organs and vessels, controlling involuntary movements like digestion and circulation.
- Cardiac Muscle: Makes up the heart, pumping blood throughout the body, supplying oxygen and nutrients to the tissues.
Gladiator Equine’s Role: Advanced Support for the Muscular System
Gladiator Equine’s range of products – including the Bell Boot, Fetlock Wrap, Blanket, and Reign Ease® device – are meticulously designed to support the equine muscular system. The advanced Far Infrared (FIR) technology embedded in our products works at the cellular level to increase blood flow, reduce inflammation, and facilitate the healing and recovery processes within the muscles.
- Bell Boot and Fetlock Wrap: These products target the lower extremities, aiding in the reduction of inflammation and promoting healing in the tendons and muscles, crucial for movement and support.
- Blanket: It covers a substantial area of the horse’s body, providing comprehensive support to the major muscle groups, aiding in relaxation, recovery, and alleviating pain.
- Reign Ease®: Placed on the horse’s poll, it utilizes FIR technology to soothe and relax the muscles in the neck and head area, contributing to overall well-being and stress reduction.
