Foxhall’s equine solarium employs a series of large red lamps emitting infrared rays. Infrared rays are a form of heat radiation which is capable of deep penetration. These rays will raise the body temperature of your horse and activate major bodily functions. As your horse’s capillaries expand, this will stimulate blood flow, regeneration, circulation and oxygenation and deliver recuperation from tissue injuries, toxins, digestive issues and presence of pathogens and parasites.

The use of an equine solarium with its infrared rays will also relax tightened and stressed muscles, promoting a calming effect that contributes to healing and reduced soreness. An equine solarium can also be used to strengthen your horse’s immune system through the production of white blood cells, contributing to your horse’s overall wellbeing.

When the equine solarium at Foxhall is used for your horse’s pre-exercise warmup, muscle loosening and relaxation will improve training performance and reduce injury. Equine solariums promote a faster recovery from exercise. Equine solariums can also be used for warming and drying after wash-downs.
