Taut muscles mean that the horse can experience pain, overcompensate with movements that are harmful to the body, develop a shorter stride length and have impaired muscle growth. Our tests show that Accuhorsemat® makes horses calmer and relaxes the muscles, which speeds up the export of waste products from the muscles.
Increases blood circulation, softens muscles and releases endorphins.
Accuhorsemat gives your horse the best conditions for recovery
This new and innovative blanket is a practical and easy way to increase the blood flow in muscle tissue. Increased blood flow will among other things, make the muscles warm, supple and less tense and it also helps getting rid of waste products in the muscles after training. It releases wellbeing endorphins which helps your horse to relax and feel good.
The Thermography Study shows that placing the acupressure mats on vital areas of the horse’s body is sufficient as the effect of increased bloodflow will spread through the whole body of the horse.
“With the Accuhorsemat your horse will experience an increase in the delivery of oxygen to the muscles. As seen in the thermography report, there is increased uptake over critical areas of interest that better engage the hind end and the withers to allow more fluid movement and extension through the front end of the horse”.
Circulation is critical to a horse’s recovery process. It brings nutrient rich oxygen to help muscles recover, removes toxins and wastes, reduces inflamation, and improves the body’s ability to heal itself.
Accuhorsemat significantly increases blood flow in as little as 15 minutes. You can see that the increased circulation happens across the horse’s whole body, not just where the mats are placed!
Benefits and Results with ACCUHORSEMAT®
Acupressure is an ancient treatment method for relaxation and pain relief which involves stimulating the acupuncture points along the body’s energy paths – so-called meridians.
The Accuhorsemat® has acupressure mats covered with “spike rosettes” perfectly positioned over the horse’s shoulder and haunch, which are similar to the spike mats available for people. The horse’s skin and nervous system are much more sensitive than those of humans, and when 11,000 neat spikes work on the horse’s acupressure points, a noticeable effect is achieved in a short time.

What our Customers are saying
“Using the Accuhorsemat allows horses to become more supple and warmed up, and I noticed that the horses suffer less from muscle soreness and tensionsafter cross-country tests. The Accuhorsemat is a very important tool and plays a big part in our competing success.”
“The Accuhorsemat relaxes my horses’ backs, hips & shoulders, helping them stay loose & limber! I love this product & find it very affordable & super helpful to my horses’ successful performances!”
“I am using Accuhorsemat now for over a year on all my horses on a daily basis. It became part of our afternoon‘spa-ritual’: my horses are standing under the solarium with their Accuhorsemat and within a minute (often less) they are totally relaxed and snoozing. I feel it helps them recover faster after training. At competitions I also always have the Accuhorsemat with me, first to keep up our daily routine but also after long transports and before training to warm up the muscles.”
“I am really happy with the Accuhorsemat My horse is a slow starter. We always made the joke that he is a diesel engine. Since I use the Accuhorsemat it feels that he is already warmed up when I start riding. He feels much looser in his body and more relaxed but absolutely not slow.
I never start any training, riding or lunging, without using the Accuhorsemat
“As an elite rider my horses are exposed continuously to high stresses. Both through competitions and training but also through transportation to and from competitions. Accuhorsemat have not only calmed down my horses but I also feel that they recover more quickly after training and competition”
“The idea of the Accuhorsemat is a good concept for horses which have difficulty in relaxing at the start of their work. By using the Accuhorsemat I experience a noticeable difference for these types of horses and that is why I can recommend it to others as well. An extra plus is the stimulation of the entire body’s blood circulation.”
