Adjustable latex resistance bands that conveniently attach to a saddle pad for use when riding or lunging to help promote core strengthening, correct and balanced movement either under saddle or while lunging your horse.
Our pad systems include two clips for the abdominal bands, so as to get a more custom fit for your horse. Sometimes the abdominal band can slide around so finding the right spot using different clips, can alleviate this issue.
1) Saddle pad with one set of bands
--One all purpose pad with clips sewn on to attach bands.
--One purple hind end band with clips
--One purple abdominal band with clips
This is all you need to get started, additional bands can be purchased later if you find the need for it!
2) Saddle pad with two sets of bands
--One all purpose saddle pad with clips sewn on to attach bands.
--Two purple hind end bands with clips
--Two purple abdominal bands with clips
Having two sets of bands is helpful for using on different horses, or just having a back up set.
3) Saddle pad only (no bands)
This is a semi-DIY option where I supply the pad with clips sewn on (with my industrial heavy duty sewing machine), and you supply and use bands of your choice to clip to the saddle pad. This is an option for budget conscious horse owners to allow you to affordably build your own training/resistance band system that conveniently attaches to a saddle pad, rather than tying bands to billets or other less convenient options.
--One all purpose saddle pad with female clips sewn on to attach bands of your own supply
--Remaining male clips to attach to the female clips, so you can effectively create two attachable bands. (i.e one for abdominal and one for hind end)
--Tri-glides to organize your bands if needed
For all options, you will need a way to attach the pad to the horse - like a surcingle or saddle. Surcingle not included.
User guide is included with all options.
The bands are 99.998% free of soluble proteins (latex allergens), but should not be used by people with latex sensitivity.
They are also equivalent to Theraband Gold and are rates at 20-30 approximate pounds of resistance at 100% to 200% elongation (2x to 3x un-stretched length).
All Purpose Pad Measurements: 23" spine; 18" drop
Length of hind end band (any strength) - 9 ft
Lax length of abdominal band (any strength) - 6 ft
--Terms and Conditions of purchase--
By purchasing this equine equipment, you recognize the horses can be unpredictable and it is impossible to predict how they will react to a new training program therefore it is up to you to know your horse and how they respond to new situations. By purchasing, you agree to hold me/my shop harmless in the event of an accident while using my product.
The package came in a timely manner, and was clean and well packaged. I have only had the chance to use it a couple times, but I really like it. The bands do kind of hold dust, so do need to be wiped off as recommended, and mine currently slip and loosen when in use. But the user manual has tips on how to deal with these things, and I just need to implement those recommendations! I am tempted to order an extra band to try the 2 abdominal band set up!
I used this on my horse twice before the hind band snapped. I had it fitted properly, worked well the first session (used about 10 minutes), as soon as my horse started trotting on the second session the hind band split. I followed all fitting guides to the T, have the bands at 65% resistance (50% is recommended) I doubt they would hold up at 50%. Very disappointing.
We are sorry to hear the band broke. The weight rating of the bands are 20-30 lbs at 2x elongation, and without being there to assess fit, it is hard to say why it broke. There are many variables to consider, like saddle shifting forward or your horses conformation that can put extra pressure on the bands. Also, we cannot rule out a manufacturing defect that was not noticed. Bands that break is an atypical result for our product. We are happy to send a replacement band, or if you prefer, we'll accept a return.
I’ve used many different resistance band systems over the years, this Is by far the best!! The bands lay wide and flat, and I absolutely love the two band option for the belly!
Thank you for making this product, I’ve literally tied extra bands onto other systems to get the results I’ve needed.
Really pleased with the quality of this, and impressed with the quick shipping. Excited to keep working with it and seeing how my horse’s fitness and strength improves.
