We're bringing you this product at the lowest price allowed by the manufacturer. That means this item isn't eligible for additional discounts or promotions.

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'!).

Why We Love This

EquiFit Gel Bands protect rider's heels, ankles and legs from rubs and irritation while riding and are ideal for breaking in new boots! The Equifit Gel Bands stay in place while riding and fit comfortably and unobtrusively under tall boots, chaps and half chaps.  The EquiFit Gel Bands are made of a unique stretchable fabric lined with a polymer gel that gradually releases a soothing mineral oil into the skin. Imported.

Favorite Features

  • No more suffering through breaking in your boots!
  • Very stretchy outer lined with a polymer gel for comfort
  • Dermatologist tested
  • Washable and reusable

    EquiFit Gel Bands is rated 4.3077 out of 5 by 52.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best purchase ever! I bought these on the recommendation of the Smartpak representative to break in a new pair of boots. I bought the tall one and cut it in half to use on both feet. I was able to wear my new boots without getting blisters on my ankles or heels. I even used them around my knees after the ankles were broken in to prevent rubs from the boot height. They work great and make your skin nice and soft underneath. I've been using them for about 1 month and they are still like new. I will never break in new boots again without them!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product! I bought these for my daughter on a recommendation from one of her teammates. Her new boots were rubbing. She says, "They're amazing! I now ride in my new boots and don't feel a thing!" Meaning, no pain, no rubbing, no blisters!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works like a charm! I actually use this for fencing. I ruptured a tendon in my elbow and was unable to fence until it healed. I got the gel band and use it on my elbow. It provides compression and support to the elbow and let's me fence again. I have purchased two already and will continue to use it.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from These are aaaamazing Based of another review I bought these to help with breaking in new tall boots. love the sqooshy feel in the boots. I tend for my ankles to rub on the back of new boots. Not with these on! just do yourself a favor and buy one. I bought the tall set not realising it was a pack of one only. really since i was only using it to protect my ankles i just cut it into two pieces. I don't have them long enough to comment on longevity but so far so good.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from They will do! It was recommended to me to get these gel bands to break in the Tredstep Donatellos, which tend to rub everyone's heels off! They're the only reason I can ride in my tall boots, I can't bear it without them. However, they pill very easily, and are pretty bulky on your ankle. They don't stay in place, so about halfway through the ride my boots are already rubbing. and they really irritate my skin if I wear them for very long! So, unless I get new tall boots, these will work. But I wouldn't get them if you don't absolutely have to.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works perfectly No more sore ankles in my English or western boots. They seem thick but fit into the boots with no problem. My English boots have full zippers and my western boots pull on and the bands work fine with either pair of boots. I wear them over my boot socks and they work great like that.

    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...
