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

The EquiFit ShouldersBack Original™ was developed by a leading orthopedic team to help rider’s improve posture. Designed for the equestrian, ShouldersBack™ is an all-elastic garment that helps you attain proper equitation in a safe and comfortable manner. ShouldersBack™ is also worn by professional athletes, dancers, chiropractors, dental hygienists, actors and models. With consistent use ShouldersBack helps retrain your mind and muscles to stay in a correct, upright position. ShouldersBack™ is comfortable, breathable and does not restrict nor hinder your movement. Because ShouldersBack™ does alter your positioning, EquiFit recommends beginning slowly and listening to your body. Slip it on for just one hour a day and, if it feels good to you, gradually increase the time to your comfort level. ShouldersBack is great for both men and women.

Care Instructions:
Hand wash, line dry.

    EquiFit ShouldersBack Original™ is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 53.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from No More Back Pain A few years ago, I had back pain from riding my green horse, an Arab who was 4 at the time, and I wore this product all the time, including school and riding, and my back felt so much better. However, this product caused rubbing on the inside of my arms that was uncomftorable when I had to move my arms a lot, like when I was jumping or in gym class.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good Product I purchased shoulders back due to a neck and shoulder injury setting my posture off. It has been very helpful in and out of the saddle!! The arm straps do chafe and can leave me with soreness under my arms - aside from that - I think the product is very good!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great for Flat Work Posture Fit well, and kept shoulders back. Did hamper release on jumps. Would recommend wearing for flat work, but not for jumping bigger jumps.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Upper back back brace Whoever designed this had women in mind. It allows maximum support for middle and upper back without interfering with your bra.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works well I work at my computer all day. I felt like I needed something to give my back a little more support. I've worn it while I'm working and my back feels much better and I sit up much straighter.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent product! I bought the EquiFit Shoulders Back as I am recently retired. With many years at a desk, and now wanting to get back into the show ring, my shoulders were stooped a bit. This product did the trick, and helped my body position in the saddle, so that I sat in the saddle much better. I'm also wearing it around the house from time to time to remember to keep my shoulders back. Showring, here I come!!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Teaching me not to slouch I bought this to help correct my lazy slouch both in and out of the saddle. I've been using it 30 to 45 minutes a day just around the house and when riding. Just sort of as a reminder to straighten up - SHOULDERS BACK! So far it is helping, it's only been 10 days though, long term results have yet to be seen. I will say that the first few times I used it, I could really feel the stretch in my upper shoulders and neck muscles - there was no question it was pulling them back and I could feel a difference in my posture instantly. You do have to play with and adjust the straps to get the fit just right, but that is sort of the whole point - as you get your act together, the fit will loosen until you don't need this thing. I do wish the price were lower - other than that I have no real complaint.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Little Tricky I really like this product, it supports my upper body when I'm doing stalls and riding wonderfully BUT... it's almost like you need 2 people to put it on. The secret that I have figured out is that you have to velcro the arm straps first then slip it on like a shirt. Otherwise it's great! Some people have stated that it is too hot but I don't really think that it is. Good product but it would be nice if the straps weren't like a Rubics Cube.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent product Comfortable, and effective - I highly recommend this to anyone who is considering it. My son also likes it while computing, says it helps ease his achy neck.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from the perfect reminder I only gave 4 stars because Ii had hopes that SmartPak would carry the new ShoudersBack Lite for summertime, but I still ride in mine often and always show in it. I really like how it doesn't force you to keep your shoulders back: it just reminds you and shows you what muscles to relax and flex, so it's not cheating! I sleep in it when i get sore shoulders/neck and it helps a ton.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Don't leave home without it! The Shoulders Back DEFINITELY makes a difference in equitation placings! I would highly recommend, even if you don't necessarily have a "problem" with your shoulders... it just improves the entire overall look. I've made all of the kids that ride with me get one and have seen their placings noticeably improve!
    Date published: 2008-06-18
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Reminder for ALL I use this tool to remind me to keep my shoulders back. After hours of training young horses I find myself leaning forward and paying attention to the front end of my animal more than I do worrying about my equitation and its effects on the back end of my animal. So not only does my equitation suffer during training, but I often require that physical reminder to get my body back in proper position so I can fine tune my animals to listen to a rider in perfect equitation.
