A Poultice that Pulls Out Swelling in Horses and Humans

My roping horse Nacho loves his job. He struggles with swollen legs and stocking up, however, after intense training or traveling. His problem seemed to be never-ending and was frustrating for us both.

Over Labor Day weekend in 2019, we hauled a long distance. When I unloaded Nacho off the trailer, i noticed his legs had stocked up again. It was late at night, so I couldn't walk him out to reduce the swelling.

Instead, I applied Redmond Red Edge poultice to his legs and put Nacho in his stall. The next morning I was happy to find the swelling 99% gone.

Not only do I use Red Edge now on my horse, but I also use it on myself! I have a bad shoulder, and while it was surgically repaired, it still bothers me  when I rope—especially during and after a hard practice session.

Now, when I finish, I apply the poultice to my shoulder, and within 30 minutes to an hour, the inflammation and pain are gone.

Red Edge works for both my horse and me, and it works rapidly! It’s a relief knowing I’ve found a product that I can count on.
