Polo is a physically demanding sport for riders and horses alike, especially at the professional level. One California-based company offers a unique and powerful solution for alleviating pain in horses.
Headquartered in San Diego, LifeWave is a health technology firm that has developed a patented, non-transdermal patch technology. One such patch is called AcuLife, and provides safe and natural pain relief for horses.
How exactly does it work? Much like humans, horses have various pressure points throughout their bodies. AcuLife gently stimulates these points on the skin, improving the body’s energy flow to naturally relieve aches and pains. It’s also important to note that no drugs, stimulants, magnets or needles are used or enter the body during this process. And no prescription is necessary.

On February 25, 2014, Carlos Gracida raced down the field at the Everglades Polo Club atop a powerful thoroughbred pony. After decades of being among the best to play the game, having already won every major prize and tournament multiple times in his long career, the 53-year-old had nothing left to prove -- certainly not in the midlevel tournament he was participating in that day, the Freebooters Classic 14.
