Horse flies are a constant nuisance, particularly during the period May – October in the northern hemisphere. Since they feed on blood, their aggressive stings are very painful not only for animals, such as horses and cows, but also for humans.

A few comments from Horse Owners!
“I just had my horses SI taped before a 6 hour trailer ride and cannot believe the difference when I unloaded Jigger. He was fresh, flexible and ready to go and did not need any where as much warm-up time as usual. Thank you!”
–  J. Wilsom MI

“My veterinarian taped one of my boarders horses who had a come in from the pasture on 3-legs. His right front was swollen beyond recognition – you couldn’t see any definition in the leg from the pasturn to the knee. She did a circulation taping and in less than 6 hours the leg looked normal – none of us could believe it. Thank you Equi-Tape.”
–  S. Hernandez NM

New Website

Welcome to our new website! We are excited to bring you a new layout to our website that we hope will be a lot easier for all to use. We have kept the standard features we offered on our past website, but with enhanced and easy to use tools.

You can still access all of the dealers we supply across Canada. This page will look a bit different to you, but all of the information is still there for you to use. We kindly ask for you to take a browse on the Dealer page, and if you have any issues or comments please let us know.

Our “News” section will still feature special announcements, contests, related events, new product announcements and updates for anything that may become available over the course of the year!

We have decided to trade in our interactive catalogue for our newly designed “Products” section. This will allow you to filter down to exactly what you are looking for. You can browse in all of the categories we have listed in our hard copy catalogue. This tool will constantly reflect the products that we still have in-stock, and those ones that are discontinued will instantly be removed from the website. We currently ask you to be patient with us while we update this “Products” section to reflect our inventory.

We ask for you all to take a look around, and we look forward to any and all feedback you may have!

Thanks for your continued support.
