Sportz-Vibe by Horseware Ireland is an easy to use effective massage therapy rug that is comfortable, lightweight, and extremely portable.  

Excellent as a warm up tool and as a recovery aid, the Sportz-Vibe Massage Rug for Horses helps to warm up muscles before work, ease soreness and stiffness afterwards, and accelerates recovery after injury.  

Designed and created by the team who brought you the highly successful Ice-Vibe Circulation Therapy range. 

The stimulation of Sportz-Vibe is gentle enough that it won't over-work your horses muscles but is strong enough that it will effectively reduce muscle tension and stimulate the lymph system into repair.  Its removable massage panels mean that you can target areas of discomfort and treat them individually or collectively.  Areas that Sportz-Vibe panels can be positioned in the rug are: neck, shoulders, centre back and hind quarters.   Adjustable front straps and surcingle straps allows one size of Sportz-Vibe Rug to treat 3 different sizes of horse.  Sports-Vibe comes in, Small, Medium and Large.  

The vibration panels in the rug create a massage effect, this aids in the relaxation of muscle.  A more relaxed muscle means better blood flow which is essential to bring oxygen and nutrients to tissues.  A good supply of oxygen and nutrients are necessary to repair damaged muscle and also to build and develop new muscle. In addition, by activating the Lymph system to move, the massage effect facilitates the removal of inflammation and stimulates repair to damaged tissue thus promoting healing.  Massage is renowned for its ability to promote healing, reduce pain, improve blood supply to tissue, and reduce inflammation.  


Sportz-Vibe comes with 4 removable massage panels which can be placed in four areas on either side of the rug, centre back, hind quarters, shoulders and neck.  These work alternatively on either side of the horse’s body to stimulate circulation. Sportz-Vibe has two treatment settings, both automatically switch off after twenty minutes and can be used up to 3 times a day. 


The Sportz-Vibe Massage Therapy Rug is made from a high quality breathable fabric which is adjustable for horses of different builds and once the panels and rechargeable battery is removed, is fully machine washable. It comes with four massage panels, a universal charger, a rechargeable battery which lasts up to three hours and includes an in-built battery level indicator.  A detachable hood is included and all arrives in a smart Sportz-Vibe back pack, it is very easy to store and transport.  Sportz-Vibe rugs come with a 6 month warranty from date of purchase.
