What if you had a full-time equine massage therapist for your barn? OK, so that might be a little over the top. But having an Equilibrium Massage Pad is the next best thing.
The Massage Pad is clinically proven relax the horse and its back, allowing for greater flexibility and a lengthening of stride. “Riders have reported an increase in their horse’s stride of up to 12 centimeters,” Robin Moore, owner of World Equestrian Brands LLC said. Clinical studies conducted by Myerscough College have proven that after six weeks of use, horses demonstrated significant improvements in back flexibility, relaxation and showed an increase in stride length.
Each session with the massage pad lasts 30 minutes. The pad has three settings: low to cool a horse‘s muscles after exercise, medium to warm muscles before a workout and high to relax a horse’s muscles on a day off from training. The Equilibrium Therapy Massage Pad can also be used to relax a horse during exercise. “It’s great for endurance horses when they are in the box trying to bring their heart rate down,” Moore explained.
Here’s what top event rider Kim Severson has to say about the Equilibrium Massage Pad:
The Equilibrium Massage pad has become an integral part of the management of the horses in my barn. The horses are in all levels of training from novice and preliminary, to my more experienced intermediate and advanced horses, and they all benefit from the use of this pad.
We use it in a variety of ways, sometimes before riding to help relax and warm the back up, or after training to aid in cool down. For us, the massage pad is part of maintaining healthy horses, not only as something to use if there is an issue.
We travel a lot, and the massage pad is easy to pack, easy to use, and highly effective. The benefits are clear, and the horses love it.” – Kim Severson
