What are the benefits of massage for horses?

Massage is well known for its ‘feel good’ factor and 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.

What is the material used within the Standard Massage Pad?

The Massage Pad is made up of polyurethane, or PU, with foam padding. The PU outer makes the product extremely hardwearing, but also hygienic – which is ideal if it is shared between many horses and ponies. It is resistant to water and grease, but also to fungus. This material paired with the padding also makes it comfortable for the horse.

Four massage motors are positioned in the target areas for horses and ponies. There are two either side of the wither and another two just behind the saddle area. The careful design of the massage pad then facilitates the spread of the massage along the back muscle.

Who is the Standard Massage Pad for?

While the Standard Massage Pad is suitable for multiple sizes of horses, this XL Massage Pad is ideal for horses in 6’6″+ rugs or those particularly long or broad in the back

You can use the horse Massage Pad before riding, after riding or on a day off! Here's a few scenarios:

  • Horses on box rest to maintain good circulation.
  • After exercise to help support recovery.
  • Before exercise as part of warm up.
  • At a show after travelling to relax.
  • On your horse or pony’s day off as general maintenance.
  • Anytime as a reward.

How does the Standard Massage Pad work?

The control panel allows you to select low, medium or high settings and as a result, you can choose the intensity of the program to suit your pony. 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.

Choosing your setting:

  • LOW for cool down after exercise, for a sensitive horse or to introduce the pad to your horse for the first time.
  • MEDIUM to warm up the muscles prior to exercise or for general maintenance.
  • HIGH if your horse prefers a more intense massage.

The massage pad will run for 30 minutes before turning itself off automatically however, you can manually turn it off sooner if needed.

It can be used on its own or in conjunction with the hand-held Massage Mitt for an all over massage, or the Massage Mitt Hotspot to combine heat and massage.

The Equilibrium Massage Pad has been independently tested by Myerscough College in Lancashire, the findings showed:

Increased Flexibility - 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%.

Stride Length - 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!

Promoting Relaxation - Using a heart rate monitor, horses wearing the Equilibrium Massage Pad showed an increase in relaxation compared to the horses in the control group.
