The Equiband™ system is designed to promote improved core stability in the lunged and ridden horse.
We have a new shipment due to arrive soon! Systems can be pre-ordered now and will be shipped immediately when they are received in stock. Apologies for the delay.
The Equiband™ system consists of a saddle cloth and two separate lengths of Equiband™ that attach onto the saddle cloth. The saddle cloth is available in 3 sizes, small, regular and large. It is made up of a wool/felt mix and is machine-washable. It is ergonomically shaped to prevent any restriction in the wither or lower back regions. The clips that attach Equiband™ to the saddle cloth are designed for durability and safety. The saddle cloth can be used with any type of saddle.
The Equiband™ itself is made of latex-free rubber, specifically designed for use on horses. The Equiband™ system uses either one or both bands on the horse; one shorter band passes under the abdomen (abdominal band or AB) to attach to each side of the saddle cloth. Its function is to stimulate the abdominal muscles, which act to produce flexion (rounding) of the back. The position of this band is especially indicated for horses that have poor spinal posture and in clinical cases of the back, including 'kissing spines'.
The second and longer Equiband™ passes under the tail behind the horse's hindquarters (hindquarter band or HQ) to attach to each side of the saddle cloth. Its function is to make the horse aware of the position of his hind limbs, activate its hindquarter muscles and to enhance proprioception.
Your Equiband™ system comes complete with saddle cloth, two pre-threaded sets of Equiband™, as well as a tape measure and user guide. For safety, it is essential to follow the guide on how to fit and use the Equiband™ system.
