Capped Hock / Elbow / Knee
Capped hock, elbows and knees are all bursal injuries and result from a direct trauma to the area.
E.g. A horse may knock its knee whilst jumping. The result is swelling caused by the production of excess synovial fluid.
Can Niagara Equissage help with Capped hock?
Any build up of synovial fluid can be successfully treated with Niagara Equissage. Although unsightly, such ‘blemishes’ are unlikely to cause unsoundness and Niagara Equissage can do much to reduce their appearance.
Massage the affected areas with the Hand Unit for 10 minutes per day to disperse the fluids and reduce the risk of callous skin forming (by keeping the area nourished with a good blood supply).

We have used Brandes Formula for 12 months now and have been extremely pleased with the way our horses have run in that time. They have looked well in their coats and performed consistently on the track. It has definitely helped maintain their good health and improved the health of horses that come to us. I believe that this is one of the best products we have ever used for maintaining the well being of horses that are in rigorous training.

I have been taking it myself for some months now and I benefited greatly from it. No more do I suffer with bad colds, etc.
I have also introduced a great number of my race horse clients to Brandes Formula. All have seen the difference. Horses are healthier and therefore recover quicker after racing so can run more often. Brandes Formula is an excellent product that I am happy to endorse.
