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'!).

    EquiFit ShouldersBack is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 52.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from great purchase I bought my first 1 back brace 5 years ago and it wore out. It helps me get in shape for equitation classes, since i mostly ride the hunter classes.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from a must have for shoulder pain I measured myself and bought the youth/adult. Had to send for the bigger one, but opted to keep the smaller one, because there was not enough tension on the big one. The first 10 min were very painful. I kept it on for two hours and the relieve was immense. The next day my headache was gone and I stood straight. . The next day my headache was gone and I stood straight. I wear it now on a regular basis, when I drive the bus. I have to agree the straps cut in the armpit, but I think I can alter it by putting the straps of an old bask bag under them.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Idea, But Needs Improvement This product really helps keep those shoulders back, while not interfering with your bra. However, after two rides, I had significant schafing from the edges of the shoulder straps. A padded strap made of a softer fabric would really help, since this is something that should be used daily for some time.

    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 upperback 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!

    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.
