10 Best Magnetic Tendon Boots for Horses (Review Guide)

The use of magnets as a natural, drug-free therapy is not new. However, it has seen a bit of a revival amongst people and animal owners as an alternative treatment for aches, pains, swelling, and inflammation.

Let’s take a look at my favorite boots for horse tendon injuries and regular leg maintenance.

#1 Professional’s Choice Magnetic Tendon Boots (WINNER)

Professional S Choice Magnetic Tendon Boots HORSE

Professional’s Choice has long been a popular horse boot brand. They are best known for their sports medicine boots a type of tendon support boots. 

These boots add magnets to the usual material you see in boots from this brand.

They can be used on all four legs, so you don’t need to purchase boots specifically for hind or front legs. The soft lining helps prevent rubbing.

The purpose of these boots is to allow for the healing effects magnets are said to have on the lower leg, such as the check ligament, suspensory tendon, shins, and other leg injuries.

If you want more coverage, Professional Choice has matching magnetic overreach boots that you can use with these.

How it Compares to Others and Why

These boots are a good middle-of-the-road option, and that’s why I choose them as my winner.

They are not super expensive but not so cheap that the quality is lacking. I also like that they are less bulky than some of the others.

Expert Tips

The more lightweight the boots the better. Lighter boots put less strain on the horse.

#2 New Equine Wear Magnet Therapy Brushing Boots

New Equine Wear Magnet Therapy Brushing Boots

New Equine Wear’s magnetic brushing boots are great for use during light exercise or short turnout sessions.

I like how the brand thought about the best placement of the magnets and put them so they rest over the lower leg’s main blood vessels.

They are classed as universal, which means you can use them on either the front or hind legs. The boots are soft, flexible, and fleece-lined.

Physical Attributes

  • Fleece lining

New Equine Magnetic tendon boots are one of the few brands that use powerful magnets. These boots contain six Anisotropic Neodymium, rare earth magnets. 

Expert Tips

Always consult with your vet before using magnets over areas of bone where the injury involves a fracture as this can result in overstimulation of bone laying cells.

#3 Veredus Magnetic Stable Boot

VEREDUS - Magnetic Stable Boot EVO Front

Their magnetic therapy boot is no different when it comes to the expected quality and style of Veredus.

How it Compares to Others and Why

These boots are excellent and have received a lot of positive feedback.

They are more expensive than other options and are designed for front leg use only, so if you want to treat the hind legs you will have to purchase another pair of boots.

Expert Tips

The best time to use these boots is after exercise to help with post-work swelling.

#4 Tough-1 Magnetic Tendon Boots

How it Compares to Others and Why

Price-wise these boots are probably the best value compared to the others. They aren’t super cheap, but not magnet boots are.

Expert Tips

It is best not to use these boots, or any magnet boots for riding unless it is very light work. Using them causes heat generation and these types of boots do not have ventilation.

Expert Tips

When you first start using magnetic boots for horses only put them on for 10-minutes and slowly build up the time they are on.

Remember never to leave them on ver extended periods as this heats up the leg too much.

#6 Benefab Therapeutic Smart QuickWraps

BENEFAB Therapeutic Smart QuickWrap | 1 Pair

The main foam material is perforated to increase breathability and use good strength magnets.

How it Compares to Others and Why

These boots are expensive, but a lot of thought has gone into their design. I really like how they include infrared with magnets.

On their own, each of these treatments is said to aid recovery. It’s nice to have them together in one piece of equipment.

Expert Tips

These are great boots, but keep in mind the infrared will great heat, so keep an eye on how long you leave them on. Too much heat is not good for tendons and ligaments.

  • PROVEN THERAPY. Our unique fabric is infused with far-infrared nanoparticles which emits far-infrared wavelengths.

Each magnet is medical-grade, neodymium (NORTH/Negative side facing) with a surface strength of 2400 gauss. Through the naturally occurring Iron in our blood, these magnets are effective by pulling the horses’ blood to those targeted areas, serving as a stimulant for therapy.
  • MADE TO LAST.

Both layers of the wrap have a perforated inner core foam that remains breathable for use year-around. These were designed to be used as a shipping boot or a stable boot. Machine washable.
  • HORSE SIZE. Available in hind and front pairs. Horse size. Available in hind and front pairs.

#7 Equilibrium Therapy Magnetic Chaps

Equilibrium Therapy Magnetic Chaps - Grey

These boots are one of the best options for horses that get stiff or suffer from chronic conditions such as arthritis. They cover the whole lower leg, including the top of the hoof.

I love how you can change the location of the magnets so you can target different areas of the leg. You can also find matching chaps for the hind legs to cover the hocks.

Physical Attributes

  • Clinical grade VITAflex magnets

Quantitative Measurements

  • 4 magnets
BenefitsDrawbacks
Good for horses with arthritisCan’t use these boots on inflammation
Magnets are moveable
Helps horses that stock up

How it Compares to Others and Why

The type of magnets in these boots means that they don’t have as wide a range of uses as some of the others. However, they are excellent for horses that get stiff, especially during colder months.

Expert Tips

Don’t use boots with magnets on areas that have open wounds. Also, the brand says not to use their magnets on areas of bruising, inflammation, or locations that receive a steroid injection within the last five days.

#8 eQuick Aero-Magneto Stable Boot

Stable Boots Aero-Magneto

eQuick is a European brand that many in North America will be unfamiliar with. However, if it’s new to you, you will quickly love their products. 

These magnet boots are designed for horses to wear in the stable and during transport. The cover from the knee down to the top of the hoof, with extra protection on the back of the fetlock.

The lower strap helps provide some support to the lower leg. I really like how they are anatomically shaped to fit well, prevent slippage, and avoid rubbing.

Physical Attributes

  • N35 neodymium magnets
  • Ventilation holes
  • 2 layers
  • 3 velcro straps

Quantitative Measurements

  • Sizes small to extra large
BenefitsDrawbacks
Great for after exercise supportExpensive
Increase clearance of toxinsHard to find in the US
Durable
Reduces swelling

How it Compares to Others and Why

These are high-quality therapeutic tendon boots that will benefit horses that do a lot of traveling or exercise. They are expensive, like the other premium options.

The only off-putting aspect of these boots is that you will probably have to order them from Europe, which will make them more expensive if you live outside that region.

Expert Tips

Even though these boots have ventilation, you still need to monitor how hot the legs are getting to prevent overheating.

#9 Zandona Therapeutic Support Boots Air

Like eQuick, Zandona is an Italian equestrian brand and one of my favorites. I just love all of their horse boots. These boots are very similar to eQuick in design and purpose, but a little bit cheaper.

Physical Attributes

  • 18 strategically placed magnets
  • Velcro straps
  • Available in black

Quantitative Measurements

  • 3 velcro straps
  • Front boots and hind boots sold separately
  • Sizes are small to extra large
BenefitsDrawbacks
Lymphatic system support Expensive
Helps blood circulationWill have to order from Europe if in North American

How it Compares to Others and Why

These boots are a high-end brand and pretty expensive. What is really cool about them is that the inner layer is interchangeable. You can swap it for Zandona’s COOLMAX fabric, essentially giving you two different therapy boots in one.

You won’t see this option with most of the others. Reflexology is also incorporated into the design of these boots, which shows a lot of thought went into the design. Magnets are placed so that they rest over reflex points.

Expert Tips

Measure your horse’s legs and use the brand’s size chart to make sure you get the correct size.

#10 Kentucky Horsewear Magnetic Stable boots

MAGNETIC STABLE BOOTS RECUPTEX

I just love everything from Kentucky Horsewear. This brand is one of the newest to the equestrian market. They start off creating horse blankets and have been slowly adding more products to their collection each year.

Comfort is always one of the most important features that Kentucky Horsewear incorporates into its products. These boots are promoted as an alternative to stable bandages. They

Expert Tips

Many of these magnetic boots are washable. However, it is best to wash them as little as possible. When you do wash them use a washing bag, cold water, and a gentle setting.

Things to Consider When Buying Magnetic Boots for Horses

Knowing which boots will work the best for your horse is a bit tricky. What works great for one horse, might not help much or at all for another. It is impossible to know for sure until you try them on an individual horse.

Ideally, you will be able to borrow a few different options before you buy to see what has the best results for your individual horse

Weight and Size Characteristics

How heavy the boot is and its specific fitting characteristics are important things to consider when buying magnetic boots. 

Heavy boots can cause restrictions in the range of motion of the horse’s legs and tendons. They can also add stress to the tendons, ligaments, and joints. 

Boots that are heavy or lack breathability can lead to the tendons getting too hot. Research has found that when tendons get too hot they can suffer damage and inflammation.

Magnet Strength

Not all magnets are created equal. It is important to look at the type of magnet and its strength being used in the boots you are thinking of buying. If the magnetic field is too weak, then it will do nothing to help your horse.

FAQs

I’m sure you have plenty of questions. Here are some of the most common ones I’ve encountered.

How long can you leave magnetic boots on a horse?

You can leave magnetic boots on a horse for up to 12-hours. But always check on the temperature underneath the boots. If your horse’s legs feel too hot, take the boots off for a few hours.

Do magnetic boots help Windgalls?

Yes, some people report that magnetic boots help windgalls. It is most likely a combination of compression from the wrap and the effects of the magnets that helps reduce these swellings.

Conclusion

I hope you’ve spotted the perfect pair of magnetic boots for your horse in my comprehensive guide to what’s available. One last tip is to always consult with your vet before you use any magnet product on your horse.

Final Recommendation

My overall winner is from Professional’s Choice is budget-friendly and can be used for a wide range of equine issues.

If I had to pick a runner up and my budget could cover it, Kentucky Horsewear’s boots come a close behind.
