While you might be feeling the gains from all that No-Stirrup November work, chances are you’re feeling the pain too — soothe your tired muscles with some great products from our friends at Draper Therapies!
For the good citizens of Horse Nation who observe that rite of equestrianism, No-Stirrup November, congratulations! You’re about halfway through this month. Whether you went cold turkey and hid those irons away for the entire month under lock and key, or you’re working up to a goal with a carefully-structured gradual approach, chances are you’re feeling the effects — both in your overall strength in the saddle and with some sore and tired muscles after your ride.
While it’s true that the rider’s leg might do the brunt of the heavy lifting where No-Stirrup November is concerned, riders know that the whole body gets a good workout, from the core to the upper body. If you’re feeling like you’ve been through the wringer after a no-stirrup lesson, don’t worry: our friends at Draper Therapies have a line of products not only for your horse but for you too!
Draper’s body therapy line includes the same Celiant® technology that leaves your horse feeling his best:
Celliant’s blend of proprietary ingredients reflect light (both visible and infrared) back to the body. Celliant changes the wavelength of the light so that it is more easily absorbed. The energy from this light improves blood flow in the target area. Celliant works by increasing the amount of blood traveling into the affected area, not by causing the blood to absorb more oxygen. The increased blood flow and blood oxygen levels help muscles and joints combat stiffness, soreness and edema caused by aging, injury or arthritis. Many satisfied users have described the effects of better oxygenation on the body.
Products containing Celliant have no adverse effects as they work directly with the body. All Draper Therapies products are safe to use continually and without build up times.
Sounds like exactly what the body needs after a tough lesson! Here are a few of our favorites:
The shoulder wrap can cuddle up around your neck and shoulders, providing therapeutic relief for tired muscles at the end of a long day. Bonus: you can place the shoulder wrap in the freezer for cooling relief, or microwave it for added heat therapy. How nice does that sound as November turns colder? [Shop Shoulder Wrap]
