It was an educational visit with Barkley from Flair Nasal Strips today teaching NLE the importance of the Flair Strip in both cross country and show jumping.
Many people don’t realize the confirmation of the nasal passage and how without a nasal strip can prevent the maximum amount of air into the lungs which can cause fatigue as well as lack of full recovery. After horses exert themselves over many cross country fences or even multiple show jumping courses, fatigue is generated and in order to make a full recovery they need the maximum about of oxygen brought into there system.
NLE doesn’t just compete with the nasal strips, we also gallop with them during conditioning.
Here are some pictures of proper application as well as pictures of the nasal passage of the horse. Hope you all enjoy!
