What inspired the horse Massage Mitt?

As an extension of the Equilibrium Massage range, the Mitt was brought in to extend the positive effect the Massage Pad was having on horses across the world. While the Massage Pad effectively targets the back, the Massage Mitt can target any muscle you want to!

Using the equine Massage Mitt:

The Massage Mitt has three different settings, which can be selected easily from the mitt control panel. You can select the intensity of the program to suit your horses’ needs. Each program has three different types of massage: pulsing, vibration and stroking. This ensures the muscles are worked in different ways. Each session lasts 10 minutes which allows enough time for full coverage over the horses’ muscle groups.

The Massage Mitt can be easily incorporated into your warming up and cooling down routine.

  • The low setting can then be used as part of a gentle cool down.
  • The medium setting can be used to help warm muscles up prior to exercise or on a day off.
  • The high setting can be used for those horses that prefer a more intense massage.

Using the Massage Mitt as an all over massage for your horse:

Use the massage mitt in a slow sweeping motion over all muscle groups shown below running in the same direction as the hair. Spend 2 minutes on each muscle group, making sure that you repeat this on both sides of the horse.

Using the Massage Mitt to target specific areas on your horse:

Spend longer on the areas that are specific to what your horse needs. We suggest 4 minutes per targeted muscle group, again being sure to do the same on both sides of the horse.

How can Massage benefit horses?

As found with our Equilibrium Massage Pad, there are several benefits of massage.

Massage is well known for its ‘feel good’ factor and our Massage Pad has been shown to aid relaxation and assist with the maintenance of healthy muscle and muscle function. Tension is often one of the most common reasons for poor performance. By increasing relaxation and improving back flexibility, the negative effects of tension can be reduced. A relaxed horse, with relaxed muscles, will move with fluidity and suppleness which is particularly important for competition horses performing dressage movements, and those jumping technical fences.

Who is the Massage Mitt for?

All horses and ponies could certainly benefit from the Massage Mitt, including those

• At rest/retirement
• In work from hacking to competition. This includes horses returning to work or retraining.
• For older horses
• Horses on box rest, standing in for long periods of time or on limited turnout.

How do I care for the Massage Mitt?

The Massage Mitt just needs a gentle wipe down with a damp, clean cloth if the material gets scurfy. For Battery and Charger care, please see their safety instructions included in the packaging, or here.

FAQ's

Replacement batteries and chargers for the Equilibrium Massage Pad, Mitt Hotspot and Massage Mitt can be ordered & purchased directly from our website. Please note these will not fit the older Navy Mitt, if you have one of these please contact us for help.

Yes, you can use the Massage Pad and/or Massage Mitt up to 3 times a day. Especially at a competition you may wish to use it before you ride as a warm up and in-between phases or rounds.

Store the Massage Pad, Mitt Hotspot or Mitt  somewhere dry and safe inside the sports holdall it comes with. Avoid extreme temperatures to prevent damage to the battery and disconnect the battery. Please ensure the product is clean and dry before storage.

The Massage Pad, Mitt Hotspot and Massage Mitt were developed to provide a superficial (surface) massage to maintain the horses’ well being. This was proven in our tests by showing an increase in back flexibility and overall relaxation. The Massage Pad was not developed to replace the manual techniques of a qualified physiotherapist or massage therapist. Only a trained professional should carry out a massage to your horse that is able to reach the deeper muscles.

The battery will last at least twelve 30 minute massage sessions, however you may find it does more than this. Charge when the massage feels weaker.
