Tying Up/Azoturia

Tying up or Azoturia is a build-up of lactic acid. It ends up creating a very hard area in the hind quarters and the horse will find it difficult to move which can seriously affect performance. It is also known as ‘Monday morning sickness’ because it’s a build-up of protein in some cases where the horse hasn't had enough exercise. Some horses are simply prone to it, but you will find that the pad helps enormously.

The first thing to do is to break down the lactic acid using the Niagara Equissage Pulse® Digital back pad and the hand unit in isolation right on top of the area. This is extremely effective as well as being preventative for the condition.
