I purchased Velocity to try on my old creaky mare who has arthritis and chronic muscle tension. I have been experimenting with applying Velocity to her trouble spots. So far, she shows relaxation soon after application. Twenty four hours later, the muscles where I used Velocity are softer and seem to be causing less discomfort. My horse has sensitive skin and had no adverse reactions where I applied Velocity. Also, a little goes a long way!
Velocity is a game-changer for my thoroughbred mare! My mare becomes muscle sore very easily, and she is like the Princess and the Pea! If she feels the slightest bit tight, she’s going to let me know it. I give her very long warm-ups before every ride and stretch her out immediately afterward. Since using Velocity, she comes out so much happier for our rides, even in the frigid Ohio winter! She is supple, willing, and forward. I’ve been working to perfect her leg yields all year, and suddenly, after a week of using Velocity, she is eagerly performing them like it’s nothing! I notice on days where I don’t use Velocity, she is stiff and lags behind my leg. With regular application of Velocity to her hindquarters, she is even starting to stretch out better. She usually is very resistant when I try to stretch her quadriceps and loins, but after applying Velocity for a few days, she happily lets me pull her legs all the way out. She’s like a different (and much happier) horse! I’ve tried so many other methods to keep her comfortable. We have ALL of the Back on Track gear, we’ve tried magnesium, countless other liniment products… nothing has worked as well as Velocity (aside from 24/7 turnout, which is not always an option in Ohio). I’m a true believer! Velocity is worth every penny.
Velocity is a great product for treating and preventing soreness and stiffness associated with training and competition. I always use a liniment of some sort on my horses’ legs after a jump school and velocity is my new product of choice! It’s easy to use, smells good, and I like that it can be safely used under wraps without fear of blistering. It also does a wonderful job of keeping legs tight just on its own and without wraps! The horses come out feeling limber and ready to do their jobs! I should probably start using it on my own body too!!
I have used Velocity for 2 months. I have used it for several horses: after jumping on tendons, if I feel some tension on horse’s muscles. Also I have used it if my horse bucked up in box and the hocks were swollen and it really helped to reduce it. So now has Velocity valuable place at my toolbox.
My 12 year old mare has suffered with numerous suspensory injuries on both front legs her entire life. She’s had all the regenerative therapies, surgery, and all the liniments and poultices produced. She has struggled with skin sensitivity and allergies since birth making it impossible for me to wrap her legs with almost all poultices and liniments, especially any with a hint of DMSO. After being diagnosed with a suspensory injury on her right front this past fall, shockwave was performed, surpass or iron tendon was applied but it was with the use of Velocity that the most dramatic improvements were seen! Not only did her legs not swell during the application, but her skin didn’t blister either. It only required a minimal amount of Velocity to see the positive change; it is nearly impossible to feel and see the negative external alterations on her leg due to the injury. I am so impressed with this product that I will never be caught wasting my money on any more poultice products and liniments nor gambling with the severity of skin irritation. The first image was taken 3.5 weeks prior to the second image - only after 4 times of using Velocity. Thank you so much for this incredible product! I am truly a believer!
