Testimonials

  • To perform at the top level my horses get the top care. That’s why I choose Respond Blanket for pre and post muscle therapy. The blanket is excellent and so easy to use. Our horses fall asleep when it’s on they love the therapy!

  • We have been using Respond Systems therapy blankets and lasers since 1996. The whole crew from Respond Systems is fantastic to work with. The therapy blankets get tuned up every fall and come back good as new. People ask me if I have ever worked with other magnetic products or lasers, and I have always said that I have no need to. Respond Systems answers all the questions they should. It’s a product that you wouldn’t know you needed it until you have had one. In driving with the marathon carriage being 600 kilos and the horses having to work well over their back, Respond Systems is a big help.

  • We use the Sentry Blanket before and after every competition, to loosen stiff muscles and aid in recovery.

  • I ask for maximum performance from my horses over three tough days of competition, so I need maximum therapeutic support.  I use the Respond Sentry blanket before and after competition and see immediate positive results.

  • The Respond Systems Iron Foot Pad has become a mainstay in our horse management program. Our event horses feet are arguably the most important body part related to their soundness and every upper level horse in the barn stands on the iron foot for 25 min daily while they are getting tacked up or groomed. It maximizes circulation in their feet, naturally alleviating pain, bruising, or soreness, and has significantly improved their performance as a result! We love it and our horses love it!
