FLAIR Equine Nasal Strips
Reduce Fatigue and Improve Respiratory Health in Horses
FLAIR Strips are self-adhesive strips that promote optimum respiratory health of equine athletes at all levels by reducing airway resistance and providing improved airflow when your horse needs oxygen most.
FLAIR Strips provide benefits for all horses including intensively trained horses as well as for horses that only exert themselves during occasional weekend competitions or trail rides.
During exercise when horses begin to breathe hard the soft tissues overlying the nasal passages are sucked in, reducing the airway diameter. This reduction in diameter causes greater resistance to airflow into the lungs. FLAIR Strips gently support the soft tissues over the nasal passages providing reduced airway resistance during exercise.
By reducing airway resistance during exercise, FLAIR Strips help prevent fatigue related injuries, help protect the lungs from injury and bleeding and promote optimal athletic performance.
Frances Stead, Owner of Clifton Eventers and 2013 Badminton Champion Clifton Promise, believes that FLAIR Nasal Strips protect the lungs of her equine athletes:
I have always used FLAIR Nasal strips on all my Clifton eventers whenever we have run them fast on cross country. I believe they help ease the stress eventing puts on a horse's breathing system and hence help keep the Clifton equine athletes fit and healthy for a long competitive career in the sport.
Clifton Promise used the new black Flair Nasal strip when he ran under time cross country at Badminton Horse Trials 2013. He finished this phase in great shape and this helped him jump clear in stadium the next day, never touching a rail, which secured him the win to become Badminton Champion 2013. I recommend FLAIR Nasal strips to all event riders.
