Very good product
If you have a rider that needs that extra look this
it. If you try it you won't forget it.

Useless Shoulder Back
I did not find this brace any help at all:
It is awkward to put on
It will rub on the front of your shoulders
Straps will slide of your shoulders if not very tight
Take a deep breath - pull your shoulders up
then breathe out slowly and roll your shoulders back and down.
This works better!!
Try some Yoga instead with your riding

I'd been out of riding for about 2 years, and my tendency to round my shoulders (I'm the tall and lanky kind) has gotten even worse now that I'm back in the saddle. I knew I needed some aid in order to help build the correct muscles needed to sit tall on my own, and a friend recommended this product to me. What a device! I wear it every day for a few hours, on or off the horse, and afterwards there is visible improvement. It's like having your own personal chiropractor - as my muscles relax, my back cracks - it's wonderful!
If you do decide to buy it, though, be prepared to wear a t-shirt under it, as you won't want to wear it directly on the skin. Wearing two shirts is lighter than show clothes though, so it's not usually a problem!

I actually purchased this because I have an extremely weak right shoulder due to scar tissue. I have constant pain, but I have found that while wearing the Shoulders-back nearly all of my pain is alleviated. It's helped improve my balance in the saddle and during weight training as well. Can't say enough good things about it! You do need to wear it on top of a base layer as it will cause chaffing on the skin. I've also found that I can only wear it about 6-7 hours at a time. Totally worth the money. Great device to help you improve your posture!

As an "older equestrian", the Equifit shoulders back garment helps with improving my posture when riding as well as when I'm working on the computer. It doesn't "force" your shoulders into the correct position automatically, but helps "remind" you what good posture feels like. As a result, it has helped reduce shoulder pain overall and assists in improving my seat and balance when on my horse. Thanks!

Helped me regain my posture
I tore my rotator cuffs a few months ago, and even after physical therapy my shoulder stayed kind of caved in. I bought this in hopes it would "train" my shoulder to be in the right position. I started wearing it around the house, and noticed a change in my posture after just a few uses (30 minutes at a time, while I did household chores). I then started riding in it, and my posture improved and my shoulders were no longer making me unbalanced.
