As riders and online shoppers, we know it can be tough to buy a new bridle or pair of boots without trying them on. That's why we moved the fitting room to your living room (or barn)! From breeches to blankets, if you or your horse can try it on, you can return it, free! Just use the pre-paid return label included in your order within 60 days from the purchase date. And of course, please make sure the item is in like-new condition with original packaging (we said 'fitting room', not 'war room'!).

ShouldersBack is the only product like it on the market! Designed for the equestrian, ShouldersBack is an all-elastic garment that helps you attain proper equitation in a safe and comfortable manner. Researched and developed by a leading orthopedic supply team, ShouldersBack gently pulls, aligns, and holds your shoulders into the "correct" position. The more you slouch, the greater the pull. ShouldersBack's 100% elastic construction ensures you the complete freedom of movement to cope with any unforeseen events.

Imported. Sizes Child (up to 24"), Adult/Adolescent (Up to 38"), Large (38"+). To get your size: Measure the circumference of your rib cage just below your chest.

    EquiFit ShouldersBack is rated 4.4146 out of 5 by 41.
    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Work in Progress I bought the nude-colored "lite" version in a large because I have developed a bad habit of rounding my shoulders at the computer and it's affecting my riding, especially the sitting trot. (The large straps are quite long and I'll need to cut them off.) The "Shoulders Back" device works to remind rather than force. It's minimally intrusive. Having said that, the "invisibility" of it creates some problems already noted in other reviews: the straps over the shoulders are thin, narrow and dig into your arms; the Velcro attachments that adjust the length of the straps are flimsy. For instance, a little soft padding that one could attach at strategic points near one's arm area would be very helpful.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from I put it on over a t-shirt and didn't think it was worth the price. The material felt cheap and the velcro is on small sections at the end of the straps. I returned the item with no hassle.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Equitation Miracle 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!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Excellent 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!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good purchase 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!
