Uses for Draw It Out

In today's marketplace we see all kinds of new products that can help your horse stay pain free.  Many people are using Back on Track Products which are fantastic but can be a bit nerve-wracking to use in the summer (especially in Texas & Oklahoma).  Other companies like Ice Horse make unbelievably good wraps for horse and rider (one of our favorites is the stifle wrap).  These products work great on their own, but when they are coupled with Draw It Out their ability to help your horse is magnified beyond measure.  All you have to do is use your preferred Draw It Out formula and apply liberally to the legs before putting your boots on (same for magnetic & ceramic sheets).  The Cold/Heat that these products provide will help accentuate Draw It Out's ability to reduce swelling and soreness.  The best news is your boots won't stain or stink when you take them off after using them with Draw It Out.  Draw It Out's all natural formula doesn't stain your horse or your boots and the absence of chemicals means using your boots or wraps with Draw It Out won't be harsh on the materials.

How to use Draw It Out as a wrap.

 

 
Wrapping a horse’s leg is an important skill for horse owners to acquire. Legs are wrapped for various reasons: protection while riding ,support while standing in a stall or trailer and covering an injury or wound. Most of the time poultices are used in conjunction with wraps.  Poultices are generally of a clay base with or without medication affectionately referred to as "mud". They are effective but are extremely messy and can be very difficult to apply and to clean off the leg.
 
Draw It Out is an innovative approach to leg care.  Draw It Out was created with you and your horse in mind. Unlike liniments and poultices Draw It Out offers the horse relief from puffiness, swelling and pain in a colorless & odorless liquid formula that can be applied with a polo wrap or track bandage.  All you need to do is mix Draw It Out in your preferred concentration and soak your wraps in the solution. The wrap can be left on all day & night until the leg improves or you arrive at your destination. Since our formula contains no carriers or chemicals you can leave it on your horse for an extended amount of time without fear of "burning".  Draw It Out to be used to tighten legs and relieve pain after hard workouts. 
 
Knowing how to properly wrap a leg is essential to get all the benefits Draw It Out has to offer.
  • Always wrap a clean leg with a clean bandage.
  • Wrapping should begin in the center of the cannon bone.
  • Be sure to always wrap from front to back so that any tension from the wrap is on the bone and not the tendon.
  • Usually start the wrap off to the side of the bone and proceed around the leg downward.
  • Overlap each wrap of the bandage 1/2 to 3/4 of the width of the bandage making sure to keep the bandage smooth with even tension on each wrap.
  • Once you reach the fetlock either make an angular wrap around it which will leave a v shape on the front of the pastern or simply work the bandage back up the leg the just below the knee.
Polo wraps can be secured with Velcro at the tip and bottom of the wrap.

 To utilize Draw It Out simply use polo wraps or track bandages saturated in the Draw it Out mixture. Properly wrapped legs will give you superior results.
 Always save the unused solution so can be used again. Store your wraps in the unused solution for future application.
 
Draw It Out as a body brace
Utilizing a body brace after a tough workout can really help a horse keep from stiffening up and becoming sore.  Here is how we recommend utilizing Draw It Out as a body brace.

 

 

 
Mix Draw It Out & water to your desired ratio (we recommend 50/50 in a bucket and sponge your horse down completely.  This will allow the mixture to permeate the hair and absorb into the muscles.  Since there are no carriers or chemicals in Draw It Out  there is no "blistering factor" as found with other liniments.  Draw It Out can be utilized as a body brace as often as needed.
 
We've also had people like Marcus Wadley of Team Draw It Out recommend using a bathing sprayer.  To do this simply fill the reservoir with concentrated Draw It Out and spray your horse down as you would when bathing.  This method also provides a great cool down period for the horse.
 
If you don't have a bathing sprayer that you attach to a hose and don't have time to sponge your horse just mix a spray bottle up and mist your horse's back shoulders and legs.  This a quick and easy way to keep your horse refreshed!
 
A secret of Zak Ellis, another member of Team Draw It Out is to mix a few "shots" of spearmint Listerine into the mix to enhance the cooling effect during the hot Texas summers.
 
If you are looking to bathe your horse as well as cool them off, feel free to mix in any of your favorite shampoo! Draw It Out won't stain your horse, but it also won't clean it either.

  1. Draw It Out
  2. Gauze
  3. Vet Wrap
  4. Barrier Boot

  •  Soak the gauze thoroughly in the mixture until completely saturated.
  • Affix the gauze to the hoof with the vet wrap then use the barrier boot to keep everything in place.
  • Leave on for 30min-1hr and remove.

Pre-Event Usage

 

Draw It Out Veterinary Strength Liniment is the perfect solution to preventing soreness and injuries as well as helping them to heal.  Draw It Out can be applied in a number of ways before an event to ensure your horse is fresh and performing at an optimal level.

 

 

 
If you have a rope horse who is a bit sore in the shoulders, spray the horse down before the event.  Draw It Out helps the body to liber those muscles up during the event.  As you progress your horse will be gaining steam while the competition is running low.
 
If your horse has a tendency to get sore in the back spray them down with a 50/50 mixture of Draw It Out BEFORE you saddle up.  This will allow the soreness to dissipate during your warm up so by the time the competition is going strong your horse is limber and pain free.
 
You can also use our guide on Using Draw It Out as a Wrap to tighten legs before an event.  The best news if you choose to do this is there is no clean up!  You can literally leave the wraps on all the way up until the event.  Depending on your competition you may even be able to leave them on DURING the competition!
 
The same wrap procedure can be used to keep your horse's legs fresh during transportation.  Headed to Canada for Texas or to California from Arkansas?  You can wrap your horse when you pull out of the drive way and leave the wraps on the whole trip!  Not only will this provide some support and protection but it will also keep soreness from building up.  We recommend keeping them moist via spray bottle but some people saran wrap over the top of the wraps to keep the moisture in.  Both methods have proved effective.

I know a lot of you, myself included, aren’t comfortable using our Back On Track quick wraps during the scorching summers we have in Oklahoma and Texas. This weekend was no exception. I used the Draw It Out gel liniment under my quilts and polo wraps but a cool feature about Draw It Out is since it is carrier and chemical free with no chance of burning or blistering your horse, you can actually soak your wraps or quilts in the solution and apply them directly.

A friend’s horse was stocking up this weekend and the BOTs weren’t doing the job. I let her use my Draw It Out concentrate solution UNDER her BOTs and his swelling and puffiness were gone the next day! This stuff is a MUST have in your trailer! I don’t promote a lot, but I promote what is natural, won’t hurt your horse, and WORKS! The other good parts? It’s affordable and nearly mess free—no stickiness, even the gel! Contact me about ordering or with any questions!"
