Equilibrium Massage Back Pad




The Equilibrium Massage Pad is an innovative design that is highly effective, affordable, and easy to use. It is clinically proven to improve back flexibility and promote relaxation and was developed through clinical trials at Myerscough College, UK. The results, following 6 weeks of testing, show that the Equilibrium Massage Pad offers significant benefits to working horses, improving back flexibility, promoting relaxation and that it could help to increase stride length.

Shaped to follow the contours of the horse’s back, it provides coverage from withers to quarters and provides battery-operated 30-minute sessions, with three different, easily adjustable programs that allow you to choose the intensity of the massage to suit your horse's needs. These programs can be used as a warm-up before exercise, or during the day to help relax your horse.

The Equilibrium Massage Pad has three different settings – high, medium and low – which can be selected easily from the attached controller. This enables you to select the intensity of the program to suit your horse. Each program has three different types of massage – pulsing, vibration and stroking – to ensure muscles are worked in different ways.

The Equilibrium Massage Pad can be easily incorporated into your warming up and cooling down routine. The medium setting is ideal to warm up muscles before exercise, the low setting can be used to cool down after work, and the high setting for when your horse requires a more intense massage. Each session will last for 30 minutes however, this can be manually stopped at any time.

The Massage Pad fits an array of horses and ponies so can be easily transferred from horse to horse or pony. It comes in a handy carry bag which makes it ideal for use at home, away. It is easy to store in the tack room and is wipe clean. The bag also has useful storage spots for the battery and charger.

When to use Massage
- Horses on box rest to promote blood flow
- After exercise to help with toxin removal
- Before exercise as part of warm up
- At a show to help recover from travelling
- On your horses day off as part of a maintenance programme
- Anytime as a rewarding treatment

Benefits of Massage
Massage has shown to help reduce back stiffness caused by injury and long-term chronic conditions such as arthritis. It does this by increasing the blood supply to the affected muscles and removing the build-up of toxins. Tension is often one of the most common reasons for poor performance and by increasing relaxation and improving back flexibility; the negative effects of tension can be reduced. Relaxed muscles will assist with flexibility and movement in particular for competition horses performing dressage movements and jumping technical fences.

Available in three sizes, making it ideal for all horses & ponies!

The Pony Massage Pad has been specifically designed for ponies under 14hh or horses or ponies wearing 5’6” or shorter rugs.

The Standard Massage Pad is designed for horses between 14hh to 16.2hh, or those wearing 5'6" - 6'6" rugs.

The XL Massage Pad is most suited for horses who wear 6’6″ plus rugs or those particularly long or broad in the back. The XL Pad features 6 massage motors to cover an even larger surface area.

Please note, the pony and standard sizes are supplied with 1x front strap & 2 belly straps. The XL comes with 1x front strap & 3x belly straps.

    Professional Opinion

    "All my horses benefit from regular use of the Equilibrium Therapy Massage Pad at home and away. I used it on Varo M at Olympia to help him warm up before the big class and again before the jump off to keep him relaxed and it cartainly paid off." - Daniel Neilson Showjumper

    “I started using the Equilibrium Massage Pad after learning about it at the 2009 USEA Convention. My barn is always really busy, and we are on the road competing a lot. This massage pad fits into our program perfectly- the results are clear - and the benefit to the horses is twofold- it is great for aiding in a supple and relaxed back, which enhances performance, and additionally you can tell they are enjoying it mentally from their expression. All around, it's a good addition to our program.”
    Buck Davidson – US, International Event Rider
     “The Equilibrium Therapy Massage Pad is useful in both prehabilitation and rehabilitation settings for helping maintain the health of the musculoskeletal system of the horse following thorough assessment. I use it myself in the days building up to and after an event on my own horses.” - Helen Mathie - Chartered Physiotherapist 
    “We took the ponies back after the last session and used the Equilibrium Therapy Massage Pad to help relax the ponies and ease any aches and pains, after all our backs are sore after walking in the wet all weather arena!
    As this discipline is intense, the ponies have to go from standing to gallop in a short distance then stop. The ponies need to be looked after so I purchased an Equilibrium Therapy massage pad, which is amazing: you can see the ponies just relaxing and enjoying their rest. I have convinced another rider how good they are and she is as pleased as I am!” - Welsh Mounted Games PC Team
