“The Vitafloor is a great addition for our competition horses. It really helps to keep them in top shape , sound, and healthy!”

“We have been using the Vitafloor in both the transportable version and the full stall version for a few years now. We have these units installed at a couple of my clients farms and they see use daily for a number of reasons, from pre-warming a horse prior to work under saddle, to rehabilitation following a soft tissue injury or maintaining bone and tissue density when on lay-up. In addition we have employed the systems for treating various ailments to the foot and have had occasion to place horses with early signs of colic on the machine with good results. It seems that placing a horse with a mild colic on the system has similar benefits to that old fashioned trailer ride. Overall I have been very pleased with the Vitafloor products and find many uses for the technology when it is available. The horses seem to like it as well.”

“I have consistently had good therapeutic results with 5 different roping horses with different injuries. The injuries included mild to moderate navicular disease, moderate torn medial ligaments, and sore and stiff stifle joints. My experience with the Vitafloor vibrating floor system has been over the last two years had I have had great recovery and post therapy results to have been able to keep my horses competing and sound using this non‐invasive therapy, which they also seemed to enjoy. I highly and unequivocally recommend this therapeutic option to all horsemen with the health of their horses as one of their highest priorities.”

“A HUGE thank you again to Nicky Oostveen for her dedication in our horse, Fresca’s rehab. Fresca was loved and exceptionally well cared during her rehabilitation at Dutch Dreamhorses, Inc. Fresca arrived to their facility a month and a half into a tendon tear injury. We had been caring for her (complete stall rest, bute, ice, standing wraps) but she wasn’t healing and her pain and swelling were NOT improving. We felt we needed to do something for her to help her progress from injury into the healing phase. After just a few short weeks at Dutch Dreamhorses, Inc. Fresca’s swelling was gone and her pain had improved significantly. After just 4 months, she was clinically sound during her vet check and the ultra sound showed that the tendon was almost completely healed.Fresca was put on their Vitafloor 2x a day. Initially she was hand walked 2x a day and then, with the vet’s approval, she was able to spend the rest of her time there on the walker which helped keep her sane during her rehab as well as a little toned. Fresca is home now and we will continue her rehab here. We cannot stress enough how happy we were with her rehabilitation at Dutch Dreamhorses, Inc. They take such good care of the horses that we actually got pretty lazy about checking in on her weekly. She was part of their family.If you have a horse that needs rehabilitation, we highly recommend them, they are wonderful people and we can vouch that they are completely committed to doing whatever they can to heal their patients. Thank you Nicky! We really appreciate what you have done for Fresca!”

“I had the privilege of using a Vitafloor while stabled in Belgium in preparation for the 2014 World Equestrian Games. I was hesitant about my horse being nervous but he very quickly accepted the sessions and was soon leading himself onto the floor! Vitafloor helps keep my horses comfortable in ways that I can’t. The vibration penetrates much deeper than any icing technology or massage and treats the whole body in every session. In addition to the physical benefits, the horses love it!”

“The Vitafloor has become a very functional part of keeping our horses healthy and happy. It loosens up the older horses that are body sore and arthritic and maintains muscle tone on injured ones that cannot exercise. On the way in they walk sore and on the way out their swing and elasticity is back. Vitafloor gives the horses with laminitis pain relieve and it helps build stronger hoof wall. We diverted serious colic cases including two foals with meconium impactions. Vitality is up on the elderly and it has helped young riding horses with sore backs. It’s very helpful with breeding; I put the older stallions on prior to collecting because it speeds things up. It also helps maintain the semen volume and density during the more frequent collection times on the older stallions, some in their mid-twenties. Those that were slightly down in semen quantity and quality last year are back up and a year older. The Vitafloor is a safe, cost effective, non-invasive way to help prevent problems and improve the horses well-being.”

“The Vitafloor® is a fantastic tool for helping to bring horses back to fitness quickly and safely after injury – in fact the speed of recovery has surprised us. We now put all our horses on the Vitafloor to help maintain fitness and to reduce the incidence of injury in the first place – it is now an integral part of our daily regime at Robins Farm Racing. Apart from the fact that it virtually runs itself, freeing our staff to do other work, we’ve found that having the Vitafloor has helped us keep recovering horses on box rest onsite… we need that second unit!!”

“We have used Vitafloor for two years now and we have seen the great effect that the products have on our horses. The horses feel great. They are relaxed, happy, fit and moving better than ever. We are very grateful to Vitafloor for their help and the use of their fantastic therapies. They are simple to use and the horses love it.”

“Since I have begun warming my horses up with the Vitafloor vibrating floor system, I feel a little like I am cheating. My horses start out warmed up and energetic. They begin in a soft elastic frame and with continued gymnastic exercises, I finish with a very supple, elastic horse that seems to find collection much easier. The quality of the work, which is achieved in a shorter period of time, is much greater. The quality of the collection, the piaffe, passage and the pirouettes are much better and the horses are more comfortable when collected. I am even finding that straightness is easier and horses that were mouthy are quieter and more comfortable in the bridle. In short, all aspects of the riding and training of the horses have improved in a very short period of time.”

“With the Vitafloor I continue to see the benefits, with faster and healthier hoof growth. I recommend it to all my clients.”

“My 15 year old Dutch gelding is competing successfully at GP, and I attribute his health and soundness in large measure to the daily use of the Vitafloor. Even though he is ‘older’ and competing at the top levels of dressage, he continues not to need any orthopedic shoeing or any kind of maintenance, injections or medicine.”

Jan Dickieson

Encinitas, CA, USA

“Since using the Vitafloor my horses feel warmed up & loose in their muscles as soon as I get on now. At shows not only are they looser but also calmer overall. Based on my own personal experience I believe Vitafloor to be the best product available.”

Laurie Falvo

“The Vitafloor® is very user‐friendly and practical in design. Since using it, my horses are fitter and more relaxed with improved musculature. It also helps prevent tying up.”

Bob Leonard Racing

“My clients and I love these pads and boots! I have a horse who always gets heat bumps under his saddle during the summer, but not on the days I use the Sedelogic pad. One thing I love about these pads is they don’t change the fit of a saddle that is custom fitted to the horse like other pads such as sheepskins often do. I have also found that if a saddle is slightly off, it’ll make a horse more comfortable until our saddle maker can come out. It fills in the problem spots without adjusting other areas, such as making the shoulders tighter while trying to balance out the back part.

My clients and I have noticed a higher level of comfort and forgiveness from their horses. Sometimes when working on a new move or even basic work like transitions, the rider may have a step of imbalance in their seat. Before, the horse would immediately notify the rider of their displeasure. Now the horse will give the rider at least a few steps to rebalance themselves before bracing in the back. Also, one of my clients’ favorite things about these pads is the ease of washing, which also makes them way more economical. We’ve also noticed a big difference in heat when using the boots. At the end of the ride the legs that have sheepskin lined boots are much hotter than the legs with Sedelogic boots.”

“I have been using the Sedelogic Saddle Pads now for over a year, and have found many benefits with this product. The horses warm up easier and are happier and more relaxed over their backs making it easier for them to engage from back to front. Riders feel more hip and back relief, and it helps amateurs to sit the gaits more easily. It gives more protection than sheepskin, as well as being much cooler and fast drying. It is very durable, easy to clean and does not break down or lose its’ protective properties or shape. I would recommend these pads for any type of horse or rider!”

Jason Canton

USDF Gold Medallist
Grand Prix Dressage Trainer

We always train all our horses with the innovative Sedelogic saddlepads. Every horse is different, so every horse has his own pad for the best performances. That’s only possible with Sedelogic. I train Wotan for example with the Orthopad so the saddle gets slightly lifted in the back. For him, it’s the perfect solution to give his best in every competition.”

Remco Bouwens

The Netherlands

“I can’t say enough about how incredible these products are. It’s great to have a boot or pad that can become instantly customized for any of my horses to support them with their individual needs and body type. The boots fit like a glove. It makes it very convenient to work numerous horses throughout the day and I love the support it gives my mares.

The Sedelogic Pad is truly AMAZING! I feel very close to my horses yet they have ultimate protection on their back. The pad seems to distribute pressure in two opposite directions to absorb the shock in a way that helps my horses to move more freely and comfortably. These are very well thought out products that I am proud to have on my Grand Prix mares. Will be exciting to see where this goes in the future- I highly recommend Sedelogic to all my fellow riders as a superior pad and boot!”

Dustin Durhan

2011 Grand Prix Winner
Professional Trainer

The Sedelogic pad is our favorite pad on the market. First of all it comes in different models so it can adjust to make the horse and rider more comfortable. It’s ability to make the saddle not move on some horses that are difficult to fit make it invaluable to us as trainers and riders. We would highly recommend the Sedelogic pads to anyone for every horse.”

Marie Meyers and Marisa Festerling

“I absolutely love the Sedelogic Pad!! I have never had a product make such a positive difference in my personal horse, my client’s horses & my clients themselves. We all felt it immediately!! Both riders & horses backs are soft & supple.”

“From my 20 year experience from veterinary guidance of Dutch teams in various disciplines of equestrian sports, I have not come across an innovative product with so much value. Because of this proven pressure distributing and shock absorbing technology, many back problems can be prevented and treated.”

Drs. B. Th. Horsmans

Equine Veterinarian

“I’m now convinced that a mounting aid saves unnecessary expenditure of energy, and reduces the strain on muscles and joints. Placing an unnecessary strain on your mount is poor horsemanship, and making life hard for yourself is plain silly.

Ingrid Klimke

“Mounty´s Cool+Press is more than good – it’s very good!”

Isabell Werth

Most successful dressage rider of all time

“Comments like “Anyone who uses a mounting aid should forget about riding and apply for a senior citizens’ bus pass” show just how woolly-minded some self-appointed equestrian experts can be. Clearly they have no idea of the tractive forces the horse has to withstand when a rider standing on the ground heaves himself into the saddle. As a professional rider, I find self-satisfied condescension easier to bear than the longsuffering pity of my horse!”

“As far as Mounty Cool+Press is concerned, we think it’s a first-rate product. We use the boots at our stables every day, and we always take them with us to riding events. The Mounty mounting aid has been a fixed part of our stable for years. We wouldn’t be without it “

Wolfram and Brigitte Wittig

“Mounty Cool+Press, is very useful for the treatment of tendons and suspensory ligaments”

“The Mounty mounting aid is an amazingly simple, well-designed piece of equipment that I can only recommend in the highest terms. The use of a mounting aid should be part of the standard procedure for the prevention and management of problems in the horse’s back and lumbar regions.”

Dr. Karsten Weitkamp

Horse veterinarian, team veterinarian of the German Olympic Equestrian Committee (DOKR),
participant in two Olympic Games as the German team veterinarian

“I use Cool+Press with my horses all the time. They make a perfect aid to regeneration after work-outs.”

Alois Pollmann-Schweckhorst

successful international show jumper

“Especially our reining horses enjoy Cool+Press after training. It is the best way to keep the legs healthy. We take the system to every competition.”

“My horses love the Warm-Up while brushing them. They are totally relaxed. So it is good for them and for me. The back is loosens even before mounting! It saves time and money and makes my horses happy.”

Rolf Peterka

Western Trainer & Breeder

“I’ve been using the Mounty mounting aid whenever possible for quite some time now – and with good reason. For a start, this useful aid makes mounting easier for the horse and the rider. It makes the entire process faster, more dynamic, and, above all, less of a trial of strength. That applies to the rider and the horse in equal measure. People who think mini climbing expeditions are a demonstration of their sporting ability are simply out of touch!”
