While windpuffs are often only cosmetic blemishes that do not require serious medical attention, many owners choose to use soothing poultice on the swelling to reduce any discomfort the horse may be feeling. While it is unlikely that the horse is experiencing strong pain of any sort, a swollen tendon sheath often inhibits the proper function of the tendon itself, causing mild discomfort. Poultice is a fantastic external application for the temporary relief of that discomfort. The mixture of essential oils creates a soothing effect after events or racing. While you need not worry about true windpuffs, soothing external applications such as poultice are always a good idea for overexerted horses.
