Overview

Why We Love This

How it Works: The Importance of Core Strength
Core musculature stabilizes the horse’s back in movement. Core strength helps to prevent the development of back pain and injuries. The Equiband™ system has been designed specifically to stimulate receptors in the horse’s skin and hair follicles. In response to this stimulation, the abdominal, oblique, sublumbar and deep neck and back muscles are activated. These muscles stabilize the spine, and engage the hindquarters during movement. Regular use of the Equiband™ system strengthens this core musculature, making it easier for the horse to work with an optimal posture, which reduces the risk of pain and injury due to hollowing or instability of the joints in the neck and the back. The Equiband™ system (est. 2011) is a completely unique design that promotes continuous core activation during ridden, lunging, or in-hand exercise. It is suggested for use with a program of ground-based core activation and strengthening techniques, and only with veterinary and/or licensed therapist guidance.

The Equiband® system can be used during ridden or groundwork exercises. It comes complete with one saddle pad, two pre-threaded sets of Equiband® (two shorter abdominal bands and two longer hindquarter bands), 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.

The Equiband® is made of a unique latex-free resistance band, specifically designed for use on horses. The Equiband® system uses either one or both bands on the horse.

Made in the USA.

Abdominal Band (AB):
The shorter band attaches the left side of the saddle pad to the right, passing under the abdomen. The band sits well behind the rider’s leg. Its function is to stimulate the abdominal and oblique musculature during locomotion. The abdominal musculature supports the horse’s back. The position of this band is especially indicated for horses that have recovered from a colic surgery, have poor (inverted) posture, and in clinical cases such as diagnosed conditions of the back, including ‘kissing spines’.

Hindquarter Band (HQ):
The second and longer Equiband® attaches at an oblique angle from the left side of the saddle pad to the right, passing under the tail, behind the horse’s hindquarters. It will settle in the point of least resistance, anywhere above the hock and just below the level of the stifle. Its function is to make the horse aware of the position of his hind limbs in locomotion, and to enhance proprioception. Use of this band is especially indicated for horses with asymmetrical hind limb movement, poor engagement, and poor development of major muscle groups such as biceps femoris (which is associated with movement), as well as horses recovering from diagnosed musculoskeletal or neurological conditions (such as EPM).

Saddle Pad:

The saddle pad is available in multiple sizes to achieve optimal muscle activation for all breeds of horses and ponies. It is ergonomically shaped to prevent any restriction in the wither or lower back regions. The clips that attach Equiband® to the saddle pad are designed for durability and safety. The saddle pad is designed for use with jumping, dressage and western saddles, as well as surcingles.
**The Equiband® system can be used on horses of any age or discipline, providing they are free of any undiagnosed lameness or neurological disorder. The Equiband® system is not a substitute for veterinary care, and when in doubt veterinary advice must be sought prior to using the Equiband® system.**

  • Comes with saddle pad, two pre-threaded sets of Equibands, a tape measure, and a user guide
  • Use with all types of English saddles, a surcingle, or Western saddles

Equicore Complete Equiband® Pro System is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 9.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from I would give it 10 Stars Absolutely I would buy this again.  Please make a pad that is compatible with a jump saddle.  This piece of equipment has been a game changer for my older horse.  It has given wings to my 20 year old TB mare.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Improves Topline My 13yo MFT mare has had atrophy on the left side of her top line and a friend recommended this to build topline and improve her gaits. I have tried to use at least once a week for the last year and a half and the results are impressive. My chiropractor and saddle fitter have been impressed by how much her topline has improved. I love that I can use it both under saddle and with a surcingle. I highly recommend it!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Seems to work but abdominal band doesn’t stay put I’ve been using this to being my horse back into work. He’s senior and has MIPS hock arthritis and not quite kissing spines. It seems to help him balance and work under himself better, and he’s building topline, but the abdominal band slips back. I’ve tightened as the instructions say but it is now very tight and still slips. My horse understandably finds it irritating especially pulling on his winter fuzz so I might have to discontinue the abdominal band.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Product! Well made! Working really well to help with more development of my horses back and abdominal area as we are now competing at FEI level. He just needed that little extra stimulation in working abs and back. :)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy to Use I got this to use with my 3-year-old mare; she wasn't yet under saddle but needed to work on building some muscle beforehand. I wanted a tool that I could use from the ground and didn't "force" her to pick a certain way of going. The Equiband system was perfect for my needs! My mare adapted to working in both the abdominal and hind band (walk/trot) in just a few minutes. My only complaint would be related to the saddle pad. It is very durable/sturdy, but not as "nice" as most high-priced saddle pads. Additionally, I had an issue with the placement of the hind buckle. The angle it is sewn at causes the band to slip lower than I'd like; I can't do much but tighten the band more to mediate that. The band winds up right above her gaskin rather than mid-thigh. On a larger horse, I don't think the angle would be a problem. I purchased the regular size (fits 14.2-16.2 hh) as my mare is between 14.1-14.2 but still growing.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product! I've had an Equiband System for years and love it! I bought the western pad, which fits under my western, dressage and jump saddles, as well as a surcingle. It has really helped my horses learn to use their bodies better, whether youngsters or older horses.
