Fenwick Liquid Titanium® fabric relieves arthritic aches and pains naturally through the Far Infrared (FIR) process which has been successfully used for centuries. Our therapeutic blanket can be worn as a stable sheet or blanket liner with no adverse effects and can be left on 24/7.
Remember, this blanket is breathable, so it can be used in hot, humid weather and your horse will remain comfortable. We used the sheet everyday in South Carolina at the training center in the summer heat, and the horses did not sweat.
If you notice your horse becoming sweaty after wearing the stable sheet for a few hours, it is most likely the Detoxification process. Warmth from radiant heat (infrared energy) helps to flush out toxic substances, heavy metals and other cell waste products through the sweat. This performance fabric functions equally as well on a wet horse as a dry horse.
Thoroughbred & Standardbred race horses have successfully worn this sheet in the barns to help naturally calm them before the race. Performance horses have worn this before a competition to naturally relax them mentally and physically.

Far Infrared Rays (FIR) is a light energy and is considered essential to our well being and health. According to NASA, infrared stimulation is an ideal way to maintain cardiovascular stimulation. Fenwick Liquid Titanium® fabric produces internal warmth enabled by Far Infrared Rays that are able to penetrate into the skin's subcutaneous layers where they convert into radiant heat, raising the body temperature. Blood circulation is the result, thus beginning the "domino-effect" increasing metabolism and creating an improved immune response. Detoxification is achieved as the warmth from radiant heat helps to flush out toxic substances, heavy metals and other cell waste products through the sweat and fat glands in the skin. In addition, our Liquid Titanium® fabric has eased nervous tension, stress and anxiety producing a calm and balanced mood with increased awareness in many horses.
Far Infrared Therapy is a natural, drug-free healing method to relieve pain, restore energy and boost the immune system.
Fenwick Liquid Titanium® also produces Negative Ions which have been proven to make us feel better by providing us with more energy and a positive mood. Think of when you are at the beach and the air smells so clean, or after a rain shower and everything seems so fresh. This gives you an idea of what negative ions can do for you. Then, think of how you feel being in a centrally heated or air-conditioned office all day, every day. You can't wait to get outdoors and breathe fresh air! A horse living in a stall in a city is like us being in an office all day and night. Statistics have proven that when an ionic air purifier is used in offices, people's performance increases by 25%. We can only absorb 15% through breathing, but by using the skin to absorb negative ions, we can absorb up to 100%. Same with your horse!
We do NOT recommend using this product for turnout without a proper turnout blanket or flysheet on top.
