Be on the Lookout for 4-legged Superheroes

In striking red, blue and black, they look like superheroes champing at the bit to save the world. 
And why shouldn’t they? They’re Olympic Games horse contenders trying out a new way to wind down after competing. Their suits, which zip up at the front and hind legs, are said to reduce muscle soreness and help horses recover after tough exercise. They also reduce the effect of vibration during travelling. 
Olympic gold medallist Stuart Tinney, expected to join the Australian equestrian team, has been testing out the suits. Although the suit is not an official Olympics uniform, his decision to champion it may encourage the Australian team – and others – to use it. 
He said: ‘I am confident it helps the horses muscles relax and recover after exercise. We are now preparing our Olympic horses for London and incorporating the suits in our management program.

The compression and recovery suit has been designed by Australian company Hidez, which officially launched the product in June. 

Many athletes - from pro golfers to runners - routinely wear compression garments, which are breathable and act as a second skin. The suit was recently championed by Hay List, best male sprinter in the world, who was trained and bred in Australia. 

Observers have compared them to the costumes worn by the Power Rangers in the 1990s TV show. No doubt, the riders hope they will help their mounts put on a truly super show!
