ABOUT US

We are a family owned cutting horse ranch based out of Athens, TX.

We have been in the cutting horse business 15 years and have raised some of the best local performance horses you can find in East Texas. Our show horses are our pride and joy, so we wanted nothing but the best for them. That's why we started working with Cryotherapy!

You would be amazed at what it could do for your equine athletes!

Why is Cryotherapy Important?

Cyrotherapy is known to have anti-inflammatory and pain relieving effects, both of which help affected horses.

Cryotherapy is known to have anti-inflammatory effects, along with analgesia (pain relief), vasoconstriction (narrowing of the blood vessels), and hypo-metabolism (which reduces the metabolic demands of the foot or, as Orsini explained it, "puts the foot into a temporary state of hibernation"). The therapy’s key mechanism is that it reduces enzymatic activity in the lamellar tissue by about 50% for every 10°C drop in tissue temperature.

Can be used to help reduce inflammation and  pain following a competition or injury. Treatment is is short and can provide almost immediate relief in your horse including in areas such as the hock, stifle, back, joints, hoof, pastern, and fetlock. The cold is applied locally to ligaments and muscles for a short period of time, between 3 and 5 minutes. The cooling intensity is so high that the body does not have enough time to compensate for the loss of heat. About 15 minutes later, overcompensation occurs, creating increased blood flow to the treated area and helping damaged tissues to recover faster.

Muscle tissue accounts for over 50% of an athletic horse’s body mass and when those muscles get damaged, cryotherapy is there to help!
