Equilibrium Massage Pad
Works for us
My horses like this massage pad. Follow the directions about letting your horse get used to the sound and vibration on a low setting - and don't tie them in case they have a reaction to the small noise. I fed my horses the first time I used this, with their halters on and me holding the leadline... and they munched away for the duration of time...pausing once in awhile to "listen". Nice device. Pricey, but useful.

When it worked, it did not give much of a massage
The battery, fully charged, lasted about 15 mins. When it did work, it did not seem to five the horse much of a massage. I sent it back!

Not a useful product
First, it did not massage my horses back. It was more like something buzzing. Second, the battery would not hold more than a 15 min charge. Returned it.

My husband bought this for me/my horse about 2 years ago. I was a skeptic and planned on returning, but thought I would try it. Within minutes of the massager being on the horse, he totally relaxed. I was immediately sold and love this product! I've let my friends borrow the massager and I highly recommend them purchasing for their equines!

My horse loved this pad the very first time I put it on her. Her quality of movement has improved with regular use. Her attitude and touchiness has improved as well. This pad is a great addition to my scheduled massages for her. I also have the Massage Mitt, which I wish SmartPak would carry! For a horse with any soreness or stiffness issues I this pad is heavenly!

So Far, So Good
I haven't had this massage pad long enough to tell how its going to hold up - the cover seems like it might not hold up to everyday use though....
The unit makes a slight noise that my horses picked up on immediately...I found that feeding them while I turned the pad on low and then adjusted it to medium helped them to ignore it completely, at least for a while.
I'm hoping this investment will turn out to be a good choice - its not cheap, but I figure I can use it on my back too maybe!
