I was first introduced to Runners Relief in 2016 by a couple of friends. I had a gelding who had slightly strained his suspensory that was secondary to some inner heel injury. He had some residual heat and swelling that I tried for days to get down, using different combinations of icing, hosing, water current, poultices, liniments, sweats and nothing was getting the swelling down.
I was on a trip with a friend and she had told me about Runners Relief and how she had used it on a couple of her horses who had tore their suspensory.
Then another friend messaged me about the product and sent me links to the website to read up on it.
I was at the point where I was willing to try anything to help the healing process and reduce the heat and swelling in the lower leg.
After the first application of the product the swelling was completely gone, the leg was nice and tight along with being much cooler to the touch and less heat. I had been trying for days with no change but the Runners Relief did it in 12 hours. After those results I was completely convinced about the product and kept applying as needed for the duration of the 3 month stall rest and the 3+ months of rehab after.
I have since used it on a couple of occasions where the horses have tweaked themselves running in the pasture, etc. I use it after every performance, which makes such a difference when they are competing 3 days in a row.
It is my go to product now and it is always in my trailer and always in my tack room.
