Introducing RockTape Equine.
The best kinesiology tape. For horses and riders.
RockTape Equine is a kinesiology tape that has a unique adhesive perfect for all equestrian sports.
It can be applied both to the rider and the horse. RockTape Equine can be used as either a sole or adjunctive treatment in equine therapy. It can reduce or control pain, manage swelling or edema, increase joint range of motion and muscle function, and maintain a level of functionality and comfort for the horse throughout the rehabilitation process.
It can also be used on riders to maintain functionality and comfort in training and assist with recovery.
"For me, every little opportunity counts. It’s about always being an unrestricted participant, never missing a chance, finding new ways to do something better, and living life to the fullest. RockTape isn’t going to make me taller, lose 5kg’s, or turn me into an Olympic triathlete…
However, using RockTape has given me back my upper body strength by helping rehab my tennis elbows, corrected my posture on a horse so I ride more effectively, and allows me to help my horses by correcting their gait when I can’t explain it to them in English! RockTape is easy, non-invasive, and proven… It’s all about the things that help me stay in the game!"

Foreword by Gillian Higgins, founder and presenter of Horses Inside Out:
“As a therapist, anatomist, biochemist, coach and horse owner, I am always looking for ways to support the health and comfort of horses. The philosophy of Horses Inside Out is understanding anatomy improves performance and reduces the risk of injury. For successful performance it is essential to understand movement. The horses’ muscular system is made up of over 700 surfaces and deep muscle, tendons, ligaments, fascia and connective tissue. For Smooth, fluid, comfortable, efficient movement these structures need to work in perfect harmony. As in the human body, there is always scope for these myo-fascial units of chains to become strained, stiff or sore. I have found that in addition to manual, physical and exercise therapy techniques which I use, the principle of kinesiology taping, gives me another tool for supporting the horse in his role as an athlete, affecting the fascial system and improving sports performance.”
