IRON HORSE is the new brand launched by Animantia team for the creation of specific protective equipment for horses.
The equine armour, one and only of its kind on the international market, is conceived with the goal to protect the horses travelling by plane, trailer, train and by any other necessary means.
In addition is essential for the post-operative comfort and protection for horses as they recover from anesthesia and as shockproof for the rehabilitation of horses with neurological problems and behavioral issues.
Nowadays more and more prestigious horses travel by plane all over the world and often they undergo trauma of all sorts, despite sedation. Even during ground transportation, horses arrive, for different reasons, at their destination with major physical damages.
The idea was born precisely because there was no specific solution for horses that are exposed to long trips or to risky situations involving physical trauma. In addition, wearing the armor, the horse can safely avoid sedation that usually involves several travel days and stops for doping controls.
A multipurpose creation for total protection of the horse’s health
that includes helmet, body protection and leg protection.
ITALIAN CONCEPT & DESIGN
Made with high quality materials, easy to use, worn like a normal blanket, provides great protection and comfort.
Ergonomically shaped for a close fit while being simple and fast to put on. It adheres perfectly to the body following every movement without constraint. The composing materials are able to absorb intense levels of shock and impact. Fully adjustable via multiple areas of attachment in Velcro.
Due to the composition, totally devoid of PVC (polymerizing vinyl chloride) and toxic materials, the body armor ensures, in a natural and physiological way, a consistent body temperature while allowing continuous transpiration. It helps to transmit any moisture preventing your horse from overheating.
The external casing is made of a high-tech artisan fabric with thermoformed quilting that provides great beauty and refinement.
It is equipped with a hinge for removable covers that are machine washable. The high-tech artisan fabric, due to its natural characteristic, is devoid of any artificial chemicals that could migrate to the animal. Hypoallergenic, it does not develop physiological dust and making it naturally insect resistant.
The inner padding is in expanded polyurethane of very high lift, naturally antibacterial, resistant to streptococcus, staphylococcus, and antidecubitus because of its breathability. Nontoxic.
The inner lining, soft and nice to feel, is characterized by a cavity that creates total breathability since it allows the natural air flow and ease of mobility for the horse.
If needed, the armour can also be used without padding as a protective high-tech blanket.
