Sorry Out of Stock
Tough, stylish & exceptionally well made, the Nomad is perfect for washing horses on the go. The detachable tank holds 14 litres of water and the washer is completely portable. It's powered by a removable, rechargeable, 18 volt L-ion battery and has a 20ft hose. The powerful operation of the pump & fully adjustable spray pattern are ideal for bathing horses before competitions, cooling off after exercise or cleaning muddy legs off after hunting.
Setting the spray to a wider pattern is perfect for quickly cooling & washing off event, endurance, jumping and dressage horses. One tank holds enough water to wash off two event horses after the cross country.
Shower With Warm Water Too
If there isn't a hot-wash box on the yard, the Nomad is completely versatile.
Fill the tank with warm water from the tap to bath horses prior to competing.
It's more comfortable for the horse &
warm water is far better at getting horses clean!
Cooling Competition HorsesWhen horses are competing in very warm conditions or are hot as a result of strenuous exercise (eg a rectal temperature of +40 degrees C / 104 degrees F) they often need to be cooled quickly and effectively.
To achieve this the Nomad's tank can be part filled with ice to provide a flow of cooled water over the horses body, especially the large muscles masses of the horses quarters. Short periods of cooling with iced water should be alternated with short periods walking to promote circulation.
In his work prior to the Atlanta Olympics, Dr David Marlin of the Animal Health Trust found that horses cooled quickly in this way are less likely to suffer heat stress, recover more quickly and don't become as dehydrated . He found no evidence that this technique causes any muscle problems such as 'tying up'.
Cooling should stop if the horses temperature has dropped to 38 to 39 degrees, if he shivers, if his skin is cool to the touch after walking or if his respiratory rate has slowed to 30 breaths per limit or less. For further information on Dr Marlin's research click here.
