FITTEST HORSE: The Ultimate Performance Suit for Equine Athletes

FITTEST HORSE: The Ultimate Performance Suit for Equine Athletes

BARCELONA, SPAIN: Innovation in the horse world takes on many forms and one that caught our attention is a new brand called FITTEST HORSE. To truly be innovative the goal of a product/service is to improve a process or an outcome; to enhance performance; save time/money and enhance the health or physical well-being of an equine and this product named FITTEST SUIT checks those boxes. The product itself is a stylish compression suit that provides equine athletes with various health and performance benefits. 

A Special Suit for a Special Animal
By applying a balanced surface pressure to specific body parts, FITTEST SUIT bi-elastic form-fitting garment triggers the acceleration of blood flow and increases oxygen delivery to specific muscle groups. Its fabric is composed mainly of polyester and elastane. The benefit? It allows horses to work at a higher rate for a longer period of time, and circulation improvements help the horse body to recover faster by reducing the build-up of lactic acid.

The compression suit also helps to prevent injury by keeping the muscles warm and helps relieve pain from muscle stiffness and soreness. During training, the suit can also limit the vibration in the skeletal muscles, thus minimizing any impact effects on the skeletal system. For those who live in warm environments the suit is ideal in reducing heat exhaustion by wicking sweat and moisture away from the body in addition to preventing mosquito bites.

Usage Examples
Given the versatility of FITTEST SUIT you can apply the suit during a training session or in the post training. Keep in mind; although the fabric is ideal for performance and prevention, it can also be used in transport to avoid an increase in temperature and to reduce excessive sweating due to nerves. For duration of usage – it’s ideal for training (short-term) and transport (long-term). FITTEST SUIT can be worn while riding the horse since the design allows for a range of motion and avoids uncomfortable pressure points on the horse. In testing, riders have not reported feeling unstable in the saddle while riding with FITTEST SUIT.

It should only take a minute or two to put on and it’s very easy to remove as well. Think of it as a tight fitting blanket.
