How can Infrared therapy help you and your horse?
Far infrared radiation is a natural process and is scientifically proven to gently and safely assist blood circulation. Helping to support healthy joints, soft tissue, maintain healthy blood flow, ease muscle tension, support recovery and aid in helping keep structures and functions sound.
Boost circulation with Protechmasta Far Infrared technology. Improved blood flow provides optimum levels of oxygen to the muscles to help prevent fatigue and perform stronger for longer.
Helps support healthy joints
Protechmasta helps decrease joint stiffness, pain, and muscle spasms and reduces inflammation and the build-up of fluid in tissues (oedema).
Eases muscle tension
The heat generated from the increased blood flow makes connective tissue more flexible as it’s extensibility will increase, allowing for improved suppleness and prevention of injury.
Protechmasta products are great to use after exercise to assist your horse’s circulation and aid the cool down process. The range is also beneficial to
support recovery or whilst on box rest.
Eases swollen or filled leg
A boost of blood flow around the body brings nutrients and fuel to cells and also takes away toxins, dead cells, and other unwanted debris which will help to reduce inflammation.
Reduce sweating and reduce the potential for heat stress, all of which are known to be performance prohibitors.
How does Infrared therapy work?
Protechmasta products use a naturalistic ceramic infused lining that emits a safe form of Far Infrared radiation, also known as Biogenetic Radiation, to the body, this is then reflected from the body creating a natural black body effect. Want to find out more about how Infrared therapy works?

Toledo gets hot and excited on the lorry through nervous anticipation. We’ve tried loads of different rugs but it is Protechmasta that has seriously helped.

I love, love, love this product, wear it every time I ride whether schooling or competition warm up, my horse responds so well to it and is ready for working a lot sooner than usual. One of the best products I have ever brought!!!
So after years of riding, I find when dismounting I’m stiff and struggle to walk for a few paces, so thought I’d try these tights. The first time I wore them, the fit and feel was excellent and after a 2 hour hack I found such an improvement when I dismounted as I felt loose and could walk and stand upright almost immediately! I really couldn’t believe the difference this range made so I will definitely be ordering some more, after all, my horses have the luxury of protecmasta range so why shouldn’t I??
I love these riding tights !!! They are so comfortable and fit perfectly. They are great wearing around the yard all day and stay very clean, the dirt just seems to brush off with your hand. I have a problem with my spine and get a lot of leg and hip pain but wearing these tights the pain is noticeably less during the days I have them on. I will definitely be buying another pair of these tights they are such good quality and worth the money compared to others I have bought.
I was very sceptical of purchasing a pair of riding tights as I often find that legging or tight type breeches do not support me enough. However , I was very pleased when I tried these on and found they were comfortable and supporting in the right places. I have also recently had a knee injury and I found with these tights I did not feel the need to wear my knee brace as much for support . They did also seem to help reduce the swelling in my knee caused by the injury. Definitely a must have in your wardrobe
Absolutely amazing product, my usually extremely tense and stressy mare has become so much more relaxed and focused after just a week of using this poll pad. Could not recommend this enough for any horse of any age even just for use in the stable.
I can't say enough about this rug!! My 16.2hh Warmblood 20yr gelding likes to be warm, he gets stiff in his back legs and neck easily. He came in from the field with a nasty scrap down the back of his hind leg from thigh to hock. So I put the rug on him, treated him with Masta herbal skin cream and put his Protech bandages on while he stood in for the day. When I came to turn him out he was moving freely and the swelling in his leg had gone down. This morning he came marching in as if nothing had happened. Obviously the healing properties and aid of circulation in the rug and bandages worked wonders for Max.
Fab item, put on my mare who is always stiff for 20 mins when you start riding her, 5 minutes in she was soft and round, I always try and put her in it before working her now, she also has it on when we're finished
Fits very well. True to size. Horse was very relaxed from the get go and went very well even though it was bitterly cold weather. Not restrictive at all unlike some other designs of exercise sheet.
Brilliant rug, already have the no neck version but am delighted with this version of it. The old one has been washed many times but still looks like new and you can visibly see the horse relax when it has been on for only a short space of time.

Findings from an independent clinical trial conducted by Sandie Chambers from Equitherm
Reduced and restored heart rate
Pre-exercise resting heart rate reduced – known to relieve pre-exercise and competition stress and general anxiety.
Post-exercise heart rate restored to resting rate quicker – showing significantly improved recovery rates, a sign of reduced exercise stress.
Inflammation reduced even after 30 minutes– promoting improved circulation, therefore, minimising the risk for injury and improved vascular health.
Skin surface temperature stabilised pre and post-exercise – which will help regulate temperature, reduce sweating and reduce the potential for heat stress, all of which are known to be performance prohibitors.
