“As the veterinarian for Black Caviar and accompanying her on the flight from Melbourne to the UK I was extremely impressed with the compression suit that was used on her for the trip. Throughout the flight she was very comfortable and her body temperature remained stable all the way. There was no sign of sweating and on removal of the suit at Heathrow I was delighted that her legs had no swelling at all and felt cool and tight.
I felt that the compression suit used on Black Caviar enabled her to reach the UK in peak condition and if I was flying more horses overseas I would highly recommend the use of this compression suit to give the horse the best chance of arriving in the best possible physical shape. The suit also appears to aid recovery after exercise.”

” I ordered the HIDEZ travel and recovery suit for Smoken-Up, the Southern Hemisphere record (1.48 mile) holder and champion pacer over 4 months ago. Since receiving our HIDEZ suit we have used it for all of his road and air travel. We have never had any trouble with him overheating or any skin irritations and the HIDEZ suit is usually on him for hours at a time.When recovering Smoken-Up likes to rest in his HIDEZ suit for several hours after exercise and pace meetings. We have found the suit enhances his recovery time from muscle soreness and reduces his pain from lactic acids.The HIDEZ suits are fairly resilint and wear really well, we have used it about 30 times an have washed it in cold water with a very small amount of soap suds (if any at all) many times.The big thing that I notice is that Smoken-Up really loves his suit, its a noticeable difference. The HIDEZ suits make the animals feel really good and I recommend them to any sporting horse.”

“We’ve taken part in some trials for HIDEZ and have had great results.
We would like to thank HIDEZ for suppling Vettori with his own customised graduated compression suit. Obviously the HIDEZ suit helped with Vettori’s performance and his recovery, Vettori has even worn his HIDEZ suit during international flights.
Anyone interested in a HIDEZ suit, please contact us we highly recommend them. Thank you HIDEZ PTY LTD they work amazingly.”

“In preparing our horse Diamond R Boston (Boss) for the annual Shahzada 400km Memorial Endurance Riding Challenge this year, we decided to use a HIDEZ recovery suit.
One of the toughest endurance rides in the world, Shahzada is a five day marathon which requires the utmost attention to detail to complete. Meticulous preparation prior to the ride, and careful horse management during the ride is crucial to maximise your chances of completing what in endurance riding is termed the ‘ultimate challenge’.
Travel to the ride was about seven hours, and involved significant sections of dirt road which we had the float completely closed for. Despite this, Boss arrived in great physical condition with no inflammation or sweating. Skin irritations can be a real problem during this ride, but the HIDEZ suit didn’t cause any problems in this regard. Boss returned home having done us all proud by not only completing Shahzada, but winning it by almost an hour ahead of his nearest rival. We feel the HIDEZ recovery suit definitely helped him recover each evening and contributed to this to this success.”
