This revolutionary system harnesses all the benefits of natural daylight for the stabled horse and permits continued exposure to optimum lighting when travelling or at pasture. Spring is brought forward and autumn delayed, extending the period of peak physical performance and training capacity.
|Cleaner air||Regulates body clock||Utilises stored fat|
|Improves respiratory health||Increases appetite||Increases muscle mass|
|Accelerates wound healing||Enhances alertness and mood||Extends peak performance|
At the heart of everything we do is to develop science based lighting solutions backed by research that allow animals to live and behave more naturally, so that they are healthier and perform better.More info
We will create a customized programme that brings forward spring and delays autumn, extending the period of peak performance and training capacity.

"My two barren mares that wore masks since november both cycled, were bred, and got in foal just as I had hoped. I bred the first one on feb 14th and the second on feb 20th. Figuring normal gestation of 11 months 10 days, my first two mares to foal were right on target. Thats almost perfect in my opinion. Using the masks have been a life changer. I love them! They have given me confidence in the future."
"I have been excited since being introduced to this concept and have successfully used the Equilume™ Light Masks for the last two breeding seasons, I am confident that they will be a world wide success for breeders. In the difficult breeding year of 2013, Equilume™ was a ‘shining light’ in tightening our average gestation lengths."
Last season, I really put the Equilume Light Mask to the test. I used it on mares that for years would’nt cycle until April or May. With the EquilumeTM Light Mask the mares were cycling by the end of January. Staying outside with the mask is positive for the horse, for their life, for mares cycling, for their hair coat. I look forward to using the mask again this season. I am sold!
“I loved having the light mask this past winter for my mare. It worked SO well. She is an older mare, and absolutely hates being stalled. So I had no choice than to either wait til summer to start breeding her, or use the light mask. I took a chance and used the light mask. It worked like a charm! She started cycling early (March), kept her weight on beautifully, and most importantly, she was HAPPY to be outside. The mask held up great! I never had any issues with her rubbing it off, or it falling apart, etc. I would love to have another one!"
We used the Equilume Light Masks last season on a selection of our in-foal mares with a history of long gestation lengths. We found that the masks worked to good effect and resulted in a significant reduction in gestation lengths compared to the same mare's gestations last year. We intend to use them again.
We at Taylor Made used the Equilume Light Masks on over 50 barren and maiden mares this season (2016) to bring forward seasonal reproductive activity. We found that the light masks worked just as well as conventional stable lighting at ensuring early cyclicity. In addition we believe that there are significant advantages to extended turn-out for mares that Equilume facilitates.
The very best device I have seen in 25years of reproductive practice, second only to the introduction of the ultrasound. It will get them bred early.
Equilume is the best lighting program I have ever experienced! We used it on 100% of our mares (including Recipient mares). My mares were cycling better than ever before on February 1st. I always said that mares that lived outside had less uterine fluid, this was the proof! This year my mares were outside grazing and playing with their buddies 16 more hours a day than they had in the past. My old mares this year had minimal problems with poor uterine clearance and urine pooling. I have no doubt that is because of being outside 24/7.
"I was delighted with the benefits we gained from our first season using the Equilume Light Masks in 2013. Aside from the obvious efficiencies of not having to box our mares under lights, our barren and maidens had strong heats in early September with excellent fertility. Without any hesitation, we will be using the light masks again next season."
"I think that Equilume Light Masks will open the eyes of the horse industry to the benefits of light manipulation in the same way that deslorelin brought focus to ovulation-inducing drugs"
