“I tried the Equilume mask for the first time coming out of winter. I have a mare that has some dermal challenges with her coat and the mask was a game changer, a few weeks of use and her summer coat well & truly started to shine through much earlier than it has in previous years. It was easy and effective. As I’m planning to travel between hemispheres this year with my top eventer, the Equilume mask will be used as part of my preparation.”
