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'!).

Soft, pliable massage pad covers the horse's back from withers to the flank with an adjustable belly strap that fits a wide range of horses. It is easy to clean, and readily portable, being lightweight and packed in a small nylon carry bag. Each massage session lasts for 30 minutes, using strokes, vibrations and oscillations to stimulate the muscles. Rechargeable battery lasts up to six sessions.

Clinically proven to:
• Promote relaxation
• Improve back flexibility
• Increase stride length
With three settings:
• Low – cool down after exercise
• Medium – warm up muscles
• High – alleviate back problems

The Massage Pad "Test Ride" Program allows you to try the pad for two weeks. If you want to keep the pad, you need to take no action - the pad in your possession is yours to keep! If you do not want to keep the pad, please contact SmartPak for return instructions. The pad must be postmarked within 2 weeks from the receipt of the pad.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic I purchased this when I could no longer borrow the much more expensive massage blanket I had on loan. Despite this being about a quarter of the price, I think this is a FAR better product. My horse has been going better than ever since using this pad (daily, prior to exercise). It is very simple and easy to use, lightweight, and very portable. I can get about a week's use out of it between charges. A fantastic product that I am thrilled with.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from 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.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from 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!

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from 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.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing! 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!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Everyday massage 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!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from 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!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Better than weekly chiropractic! After only 5 sessions, this massage pad has paid for itself. It keeps my hunter/jumper's back soft between human therapy sessions which we have been able to significantly cut back on. And every horse at the barn who has tried it practically falls asleep when it does its magic. Great purchase.

    Ever since I was the girl with 1,000 breyer horses and the raggity braid in her hair, I was always obsessed. In second grade I moved into a town with a barn right down the street, which is when I started taking lessons...
