When horses exercise heavily, their nasal passages collapse. By preventing this collapse, FLAIR™ Nasal Strips:
- Reduce lung stress and bleeding (EIPH)
- Reduce fatigue
- Speed recovery
FLAIR™ strips support nasal passageways helping horses get the oxygen they need while expending less energy.
Because a horse can only breathe through its nose, breathing takes a great deal of work and energy. The springs embedded in the FLAIR™ strips minimize the collapse of nasal passages so horses work less to get air, use less energy, and conserve oxygen.
Shortened Recovery Time Clinical tests have shown that horses wearing the FLAIR™ strip used 5 to 8 percent less energy at high speed and during recovery. Trainers have noticed that their horses are more relaxed, look fresher, and catch their breath faster after heavy exercise.
Reduced Lung Stress and Bleeding Every horse experiences exercise-induced pulmonary haemorrhage (EIPH) -- bleeding in the lungs -- during stressful exercise, though blood may not be visible. Clinical tests have shown a significant reduction (10 fold) in the amount of bleeding when a horse wears a FLAIR™ strip
Developed by veterinarians, FLAIR™ Nasal Strips are clinically proven to help maximise your horse's potential.
“The respiratory system is a limiting factor in performance of horses. The fact that all horses break some blood vessels in the lung (i.e. bleed or experience exercise-induced pulmonary haemorrhage) during hard exercise shows that this is a system on the edge. Therefore anything that you can do as an owner, rider or trainer to reduce this stress must be beneficial. My view is that the FLAIR™ Nasal Strip is a safe, simple and effective way to support the horse’s respiratory system during training and competition.”
