This is the best tape on the market for equine staying power. I recently had a client leave it on her horse for 4 weeks with no signs of falling off. I was floored!
RockTape can be used for both horse and rider in equine therapy. Some benefits include reduction or pain management, decrease swelling and/or edema, increase joint range of motion, normalize muscle tone, and maintain a level of functionality and comfort for the horse throughout the rehabilitation process. It can also be used to assist the athlete to maintain functionality and comfort in training and assist with recovery.
RockTape may assist the below treatments and activities:
- Muscle Strain or Tear
- Muscle Stiffness
- Post Acupuncture / Body Work Inflammation
- Prolong the Effects of Myofacial Release
- Tendonitis, Tendonopathy or Desmitis
- Rehabilitation, Management and/or Prevention of Movement Dysfunctions
Safety: It is important to note that some horses may behaviorally react to the RockTape, just as they would a nuisance fly on their skin. This is due to the horse’s highly evolved proprioception mechanism that is regulated and monitored from receptors located in the muscles, tendons and joints. Always position yourself in a safe place in relation to the horse when applying RockTape Equine. It is advisable to lunge the horse after the tape has been applied to determine the effect of the tape on the horse, prior to riding.
“For me, every little opportunity counts. It’s about always being an unrestricted participant, never missing a chance, finding new ways to do something better, and living life to the fullest. RockTape isn’t going to make me taller, lose 5kg’s, or turn me into an Olympic triathlete…
However, using RockTape has given me back my upper body strength by helping rehab my tennis elbows, corrected my posture on a horse so I ride more effectively, and allows me to help my horses by correcting their gait when I can’t explain it to them in English! RockTape is easy, non-invasive, and proven… It’s all about the things that help me stay in the game!”-Amanda Ross individual Competitor Sydney Olympics, 2000

How does it work?
RockTape microscopically lifts the skin away from the muscle and fascia, which decompresses the area which reduces swelling. RockTape also signals the central nervous system through the skin's nerves, which provides powerul feedback to minimize pain and cue form.
What are the benefits?
- Relieves swelling through decompression which speeds recovery.
- Increases awareness of your body position to help you maintain proper posture and form.

Great tape for equine. Effective and lasts for several days on the body. Size is perfect for large muscle groups.
I love this size. I like that it covers bigger muscle areas in your horse. Sticks very well, even if the horse has slightly longer hair. Love the design too.
