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'!).

Let’s face it – horses are hard on your back! Whether hauling hay bales, mucking or spending hours in the saddle, horse people often need back support. This high quality Professional Choice Comfort Fit Back Support is completely adjustable and comfortable to wear around the barn or in the saddle where it’s low profile, won’t interfere with your position, and only you’ll know it’s there. Four-way stretch for full mobility. The Professional Choice Comfort Fit Back Support retains body heat to provide soothing heat therapy to keep your muscles loose. Also great for non-horse related strenuous work or to support weak or injured backs. Imported.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good quality, easy to use I have had my own already, so I got one for my husband, who has suffered from backaches all his life. He has a high-tech brace already, but it is difficult to put on and off. This support is easy to put on, easy to adjust, and it does relieve his backache really well. It even holds his ice-pack in place. Not sure how long it will last in good using condition, but thus far it is lasting very well against daily use.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Easy application, good quality I got this for my husband, who has a chronic back issue. I already have mine, so I recommended this to him. This support is easy to put on, easy to adjust, and last a long time. Not the absolute best one when it comes to the back protection, but it is perhaps the 2nd best range product on the market. Also, this support creates moist heat underneath, so it works like a heat pad as well. It might be a bit too hot in summer, but for those who have serious back issues, sweaty is probably not a significant issue. For the price, durability, smart look, this is really a good product.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Keeps back warm With chronic low back pain I have found that heat works better than ice, so this lumbar wrap provides a small amount of support, not as much as I prefer, but it keeps my back warm so I am in less pain after riding.A small fits me perfectly, at 5'8" and slender.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good Support, Fits Well I am a personal trainer, so I use my back all day six days a week in addition to riding a few days a week. I use this back brace while working to help protect my back and it works! It has been too hot to wear it riding yet, but I think it will be great in the winter to keep the lumbar muscles warm and loose. I have a 27 inch waist and the smallest size fits great. It also seems to be made very well so it should last.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from good support but hot Bought this to help with an old injury that is giving me problems lower back/si joint. This gives good solid support. But I did find it made me sweat-alot! I'm not sure how I'll be able to use it in hot weather. But it does feel snug and comforting.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good Purchase for me I had lower back surgery a few months ago and was looking for a brace that would help me continue to ride my 4 wheeler. A friend sent me this link and said he used this when he rode horses. I went on my first long ride (120 miles) last weekend with the brace and what a differance it made. I loosened it up when we stopped and took a break and a few times I forgot to tighten it back up before we took off and it didn't take long before I stopped and tightened it. It really seemed to help me, it didn't stop my back from hurting completely but at least I can still enjoy riding my 4 wheeler and be able to walk the next morning.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Check it out be fore purchase I've used this brand support belt asince the 90's.Time took it's toll and I ordered a larger one. The back condition also changed from a failed back surgery to massive bone degeneration, coupled with artristis stenosis and scolosis and spondyloisthesis. With this current situation the relief that I originaly received was not possible. To suggestions: carefullly discuss this with your doctor and realistisic expecatations.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Purchase In reading an equitation article, it was suggested to turn the back support around to support the rib cage from collapsing and encouraging the rider to sit up. I tried this with the Professional Choice back support and it has made a significant difference in my riding seat and my overall posture, all while being very comfortable. I love it!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Investment After having back problems for several months I tried the Chiropractor, which helped a little. He gave me a back support to wear which didn't really help to much. When i saw the professional choice, I thought I would give it a try because I usually really like their products. I LOVE this product. It gives me the extra support i was looking for. Since I work in the barn everyday I am constantly using my back. This is totally worth the investment. Great quality.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing Difference I have always been hesitant of back braces, but this one has changed my mind. The flexibility and support is amazing. No more soaking in a hot tub to get rid of the aches and pains of mucking and riding. I would recommend this product to anyone!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wonderful Back Support I love this back support -- it is fully adjustable so I can wear it over or under clothing, ride and do other work in it . It is easily washable. I received compression fractures to my back a few months ago and it is helping me be able to ride and enjoy my horses once more.I would recommend it to anyone. It makes me feel comfortable without binding or pulling. Best of all, it stays in place where you want and need it.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from This really helps! I have been using the Professionals Choice back support for only a week and am very pleased with the results. I have an arthritic lower back than get quite painful from sitting the trot while riding. Since I have been using it my seat has become more stable because I have no pain. I forgot to put it on one day and I could really feel the difference. It fits very nicely and is comfortable. You do get sweaty under it but that hasn't really bothered me. Fits over or under your clothes.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from I should have bought this sooner! This is an absolute requirement...bad back or'll want to wear it for barn chores, riding, or just sitting around to improve your posture.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best back support I've ever worn! My back has a multitude of serious problems due to injuries and arthritis, which often made it extremely uncomfortable to do all the necessary horsekeeping chores - especially hoof care. I've tried several different back supports over the years and this one is, hands down, the best quality and most effective I've ever worn. THhe Professional Choice Comfort Fit Back Support even surpasses a so-called "medical grade" support that was prescribed for me several years ago. Well worth the investment for not only riding but for any physical activities and, because it has three way adjustability, and it's comfortable, as well. And easy to conceal under your clothing.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from My husband loves it... My husband does most of the hauling and lifting on our farm - moving hay and shavings, installing fencing, etc. He's hurt his back several times already so he is particularly susceptible to injury. He wears the support for any type of lifting and he swears by it. It supports his back while he works without limiting his mobility. When I had a muscle strain in my lower back, I used the support. It was comfortable yet kept my back fairly quiet. Our brace shows no signs of wear even after years of regular use.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Outstanding Product After a car accident, I began treatment with a chiropractor. After several months I noticed I did not ride as much as I use to and was missing my "equine therapy" very much! Spoke with my chiropractor about whether a back support would help me - he said it may and asked if I had any ones in mind designed for equestrians. I have used SMB boots on the horses and seen the difference it makes, so told him about the Professional Choice Back Support which he ordered. When it came in he was surprised at the design stating none of the supports he could order out of his books were as well designed as this one. The moment he placed it on me, I felt relief in my lower back I had not had in months! Now each time I ride, my support is on, sitting trots do not hurt and long hacks are now enjoyable! The best part too - they do wonderfully in the washing machine!
