When and Why Should You Use Leg Tightener?
When the tightener you are using now does not do the following things:
- 1st Does it have Deep Penetration? Does it reach down to the ligaments and tendons and go to work where a tightener should work?
- 2nd Does it Hold? This is very important to you, when you set your horse down to hard work or racing. Here is where it counts. You can win or lose here.
- 3rd Does it leave the skin Pliable? and Normal, or is it just an astringent skin tightener? Don’t be fooled by this type of tightener. Tightening the skin, and tightening the ligaments and tendons are two completely different things. If a tightener does not Penetrate Deep Into The Base of the condition, you will not get Long Lasting Results, that are necessary in competition or competitive racing.

What Do Customers Say About Our Products?
McTarnahans® leg tightener has been an outstanding product. I used it years ago when working as a racing stable groom and it kept the horses going. When I needed something a bit stronger than plain liminent for my Morgan show horse, I remembered this product, ordered it and had wonderful results. My Morgan is back in the ring and will be 100% by the first of next show season. I was so happy to have found it again.

A friend recommended this product to me for putting on my mares hooves that are very weather cracked, one is even split way up to almost the coronet band. The Enticer does a really good job of killing the bacteria that can cause cracks, and helps keep the hoof moist. This is probably the closest thing to reducine I have used thus far. Seeing how I keep hearing it has been discontinued I believe this Enticer is the new way to go!
