The Topical Pain Reliever of Champions. Racehorse Strength Equi-Block is the first
line of defense in our three-part Pain Reduction Program. Racehorse Strength Equi-Block
is our most powerful product and must be applied to the exact area of lameness.
It is 98% effective when used correctly on the proper area. Remember that in many
cases there are secondary lameness problems as well. If Equi-Block is applied
only to a primary problem and not to the secondary problem, you are not going
to see a 100% improvement. It is very important that you try to pinpoint the secondary
problem and apply Equi-Block to that area as well. Consult your Veterinarian if
you need help doing this.
Racehorse Strength Equi-Block is the number one equine topical pain reliever
sold worldwide. The reason for this is simple, effectiveness and results! Racehorse
Strength Equi-Block blocks more pain, decreases more inflammation, works faster,
lasts longer (most horses receive up to 24 hours of pain relief), requires less
product and less applications to achieve desired results! Racehorse Strength
Equi-Block will not scurf or blister and will absolutely not test positive.
Racehorse Strength Equi-Block has proven itself to be extremely effective on
several kinds of degenerative joint disease such as arthritis, bursitis, bone
chips, etc. in the knees, hocks, fetlocks and stifles. It is also very effective
at relieving soft tissue soreness such as strained suspensories, bowed tendons,
bucked shins, splint and curb problems. Equi-Block is very effective on hoof
pain; it has the unique ability to decrease hoof inflammation when applied to
the coronet and pastern. Before using Equi-Block on hoof problems, please consult
your Veterinarian for proper evaluation of the hoof.
Note: This product is not a cure. It is meant to be used as a means
of alleviating pain to expedite the natural healing process so that your horse
can be more comfortable and perform at the best of his or her natural ability.
Apply just enough Racehorse Strength Equi-Block to cover the affected area evenly
by hand. Apply to both sides of a joint where applicable (i.e. if applying to
hock rub into front, sides and back of hock). This gives maximum pain relieving
results as nerve endings can pick up pain signals from several different angles.
Always slick the hair down in its natural direction. Remove any excess. Do not
wrap the area, as this will most likely cause unnecessary discomfort for your
animal. Do not apply more than 3 to 4 times daily.
During the initial application of Racehorse Strength Equi-Block, pain relief
will generally last from 3 to 5 hours depending on the nature of your horse's
condition. If you use Equi-Block on a regular basis, the length of time the
pain relief lasts will gradually increase with each subsequent application.
The amount of Equi-Block required to maintain pain relief will also decrease
as Substance P is depleted from the nerve endings. In other words, the more
often Equi-Block is used the less product you have to use and the longer the
pain relief lasts. We suggest three applications daily through the recovery
Equi-Block will begin to actively work within 30 seconds. Yes, it works that
fast! This does not mean that your animal is cured of the lameness by any means.
Racehorse Strength Equi-Block simply and effectively takes away pain, which
in turn greatly increases recovery time without the use of drugs.
Because there are less nerve endings and surrounding muscle tissue in the knee
than in the larger body parts such as the stifle or whirlbone areas, pain relief
should occur fairly rapidly, usually on the first application within 30 to 60
minutes. In instances of severe pain, 2 or 3 applications over a 24 hour period
may be required to achieve total pain relief.
As per the knee, less nerve endings in the fetlock make this one of the easier
joints to provide almost instantaneous pain relief to. Relief should be achieved
on the first application in approximately 30 to 60 minutes. Again, in instances
of severe pain, 2 to 3 applications over a 24 hour period may be necessary to
achieve maximum results. Daily applications will reduce inflammation and provide
longer lasting pain relief, most horses should receive 18 to 24 hours of pain
relief after several applications.
Because the number of nerve endings in the hock are greater than that of the
knee or fetlock, application of Equi-Block to this area does not provide as
quick a reduction in pain as seen in the knee or fetlock. In order to provide
the same total pain relieving results it will be necessary to apply Equi-Block
twice daily for the first three days (morning and evening). It should then only
be necessary to apply once daily to maintain relief.
Stifles & Whirlbones
These are the hardest joint to provide pain relief to. In order to provide the
results necessary to see a noticeable improvement, you will have to apply Equi-Block
twice a day for 5 consecutive days. If you faithfully stick to this routine,
you will see results!
Also, when applying Equi-Block to the stifle area, rub it in on the inside
as well as the front and the outside. A major nerve branch extends down into
this joint from the inside; you must apply Equi-Block over this nerve in order
to see optimum pain relief to this area.
In most instances, hoof pain can be totally eliminated using the following method.
Initially it will require 2 applications per day for 3 to 5 consecutive days
before maximum results are achieved. After which time, depending on the severity,
it may only be necessary to apply once per day.
Because you cannot penetrate the hoof wall externally, you must block the transmission
of pain and inflammation from above. To achieve this, apply Equi-Block from
half way down the fetlock over the entire pastern and around the coronet. Remember
to apply completely around these areas. If the horse has a quarter or heel crack,
care must be taken not to get Equi-Block on these areas.
This product can literally block pain completely. Do not use on a horse that
is to race, train, perform, etc. if your animal has just sustained a serious
sprain, strain or soft tissue injury. Rest and ice are still the best remedies.
Not only does this show compassion for the horse, but it will also prolong its
racing or performing career if allowed sufficient recovery time for the injury
to heal properly. If you have any doubts about the healing of any injury, contact
In some instances, Equi-Block may get hot, continue to apply daily and this
sensation will diminish with each subsequent application. Please use this product
with care. For external use only. Do not apply to open wounds, cuts or abrasions.
Avoid contact with the eyes and mucous membranes. If Equi-Block gets in the
eyes, flush thoroughly with water. Do not bandage. Do not apply to unaffected
areas. Discontinue use if excessive irritation occurs. Do not use other than
directed. If condition worsens, discontinue use and consult a Veterinarian.
Wash your hands thoroughly after each application or use gloves to apply. Keep
this and all drugs out of the reach of children.
Racing and Performance Tips
Many trainers put Racehorse Strength Equi-Block on their animals from the knees/fetlocks
down, approximately 1 to 2 hours before a race or performance. We generally
recommend applying Equi-Block two hours prior to performance as this usually
allows Equi-Block to be working at its maximum while allowing the horse to warm
up with a diminished level of pain, thus boosting the horse's confidence prior
to actual performance. Do not try Equi-Block on your horse before a performance
or race if you have never used it before. Let your horse get used to it first
during practice runs or workouts.
When you use Equi-Block as a performance enhancer, it eliminates distracting
pain. This enables your animal to stay focused and use all its energy toward
the objective of winning. Equi-Block works in conjunction with the sweat glands,
the harder the workout the more active the Capsaicin absorption and it's pain
