Massage has been shown to improve flexibility and promote relaxation in horses.
Tension is often one of the most common reasons for poor performance in horses and by increasing relaxation and improving back flexibility, the negative effects of tension can be reduced!
Like us, most horses can benefit from a massage session but maintaining a healthy back through massage can help prevent performance inhibitors such as stiffness, hollowness, shortened stride length, or in more serious cases napping, bucking and rearing.

Massage Pad Testing
We are dedicated to creating carefully designed products that improve the wellbeing of the horse. All of our products are thoroughly researched, tested and quality checked.
The Equilibrium Massage Pad has been independently tested by Myerscough College in Lancashire, the findings showed:
Massage helps to promote flexibility in healthy muscle tissue, fascia and other soft tissue fibres. The effects of massage on flexibility can be measured using the 'Arch Dip' test to determine the amount of upwards or downwards bend of the horses' back. Test results from our trials demonstrated an overall improvement in back flexibility of approximately 46%.
The trial showed that the stride length of the treated horses increased over the period of the test by 12cms, whereas the control group showed little improvement. Horse owners know that a small change in stride length can make a major difference to the way of going in a horse!
Using a heart rate monitor, horses wearing the Equilibrium Massage Pad showed an increase in relaxation compared to the horses in the control group.
About our Massage Pads
Did you know that our Massage Pads are available in 3 different sizes? Whether you have a pony under 14hh or a horse bigger than 16.2hh or in a 6'6" rug, no matter what size your horse or pony is, allow them to take full advantage of the benefits of massage!
Featuring 3 different intensities, you are able to cater for whatever your horse needs, whether you want to warm up your horse before you ride, use as a cool down or as part of their day off, each program runs through a cycle of three different types of massage – pulsing, vibration and stroking –to ensure all muscles are worked in different ways.
About our Massage Mitts
We have two popular Massage Mitts in our Massage range, our standard Massage Mitt and our Massage Mitt Hotspot. Both are perfect to help you reach and target muscle areas of your horse that the Massage Pad isn't able to get too! Running at a shorter 10 minute cycle, it allows you to easy incorporate into your everyday routine.
Our Massage Mitt Hotspot features the same great massage, but with the addition of optional heat. The benefits of heat include: helping to maintain good oxygen supply to muscles, encouraging muscles relaxation, as well as increasing flexibility - plus our Hotspot can be used on riders alike!!
