If you own a horse you will  at some stage have come across ICEMAN™. The original tried and tested blue herbal topical cooling gel.

The combination of herbs known for their healing and anti-inflammatory properties including Arnica and Echinacea combined together give instant relief hence the well know phrase “Ice Pain Away”. The late Bill Quinn formulated ICEMAN™ for use on his race horse’s legs. Horse’s muscles and tendons have to be cooled down before and after exercise to prevent and heal damage after a strenuous work out.  

Due to the success of the product, and its ability to give relief from discomfort there are now many imitation products on the market. None of these imitation products have been able to duplicate the secret Iceman formula the H8000 herbal combination with its ability to give rapid muscular joint and tendon relief.

This revolutionary product:

  • Gives immediate and effective cooling.
  • Is non irritating.
  • Contains unique herbal extracts.
  • Priced to be used generously.
  • Leaves very little visible residue on the skin.
  • Contains no prohibited substances.
  • The gel is almost neutral and is very easy to apply.
  • The plant extracts remain active long after the liquids have evaporated.


  • Apply generously on the skin after exercising.
  • Repeat after 30 minutes if necessary.
  • Exposure to light enhances the unique photo/phyto properties of the product.


  • Do not use on broken skin, wounds, or around the eyes.
  • Discontinue use and rinse well with water if excessive irritation occurs.
  • Local skin irritation may occur if the horse is allergic to the gel.
  • Consult a veterinarian if irritation persists.
  • Although this remedy has been extensively tested under a large variety of conditions, failure thereof may be the result of a wide range of reasons.

ICEMAN™ is available in a 500 g, 2.5 kg, and 5 kg.
