Equilume 'Belfield' Light Masks are an innovative product for performance and breeding horses. Containing specialised blue light technology, they have been designed to help control the hormones of horses; and thus achieve year-round summer coats as well as control the breeding cycles of stud horses.
The Light Masks help influence the reproductive cycles of mares by reducing the production of the hormone melatonin (and thus stimulate the mare’s reproductive system to activate earlier). This means that foals can be bred earlier in the year, giving them more time to mature. It also helps show horse owners achieve a shiny summer coat all year round without the use of stabling.
The biologically effective light within the light mask is backed by expert research to produce a safe, effective and tested product. The innovative head piece provides the optimum level of timed blue light to a single eye to effectively deliver all the benefits associated with long summer days. With advantages for stallions, dry/pregnant mares and performance horses, Equilume is a leader in the horse heath innovation space.
