How Do Equine Balance Bands Work? 

The specially formulated bands maintain a following and supportive contact with the horse's body during movement, providing continuous feedback to the central nervous system so that the horse becomes more aware of his body and limbs.

Use of the bands stimulates:

  • Core muscle development

  • Engagement of the hind quarters

  • Strength building and support of the back and pelvis.

  • Resistance band training can be used in a wide range of activities from work in hand, to lunging and long reining, under saddle, over poles and whilst hacking.

  • The Equine Core Conditioning System has been developed for use with many different types of horse and can  be incorporated  into both general and rehabilitative training regimes.

  • Examples of horses that have benefited from the system include sport horses, young horses, competition horses, ex race horses, and horses rehabilitating from kissing spines, stifle weakness or sacroiliac discomfort.

Professional Grade - Equine Specific Resistance Bands

 Equine Balance Bands design, trial and manufacture durable bands exclusively for horse training - unlike other resistance band training products currently available on the market that use human grade thera-bands.

 

Constructed from 10 cm wide latex free TPE, the bands hug the horse's body without rubbing or slipping - providing an optimum level of sensory stimulation with increased resilience to wear, tear and sweat.

 

Equine Balance Premium Plus Bands are branded with our signature logo.

ALL EQUINE BALANCE BANDS PRODUCTS COME WITH 6 MONTHS WARRANTY.
