Why We Love This

The EquiFit ShouldersBack Lite™ offers the same upper back support as ShouldersBack™ in a lightweight, sheer fabric for warm seasons and climates. Designed for the equestrian, ShouldersBack™ is an all-elastic garment that helps you attain proper equitation in a safe and comfortable manner. Developed by a leading orthopedic team to help riders improve posture, it’s also worn by professional athletes, dancers, chiropractors, dental hygienists, actors, and models. With consistent use it helps retrain your mind and muscles to stay in a correct, upright position. The fabric 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.

Made in the USA.

Care Instructions:

Hand wash, line dry.

 

Favorite Features

  • Developed by a leading orthopedic team to help you attain proper equitation in a safe and comfortable manner
  • Gently pulls and aligns for proper posture without restricting movement so you'll be looking and feeling good in the saddle
  • Made with PowerMesh, a soft, sheer fabric that gives you more breathability and comfort in warmer weather
  • Can also be worn while working, driving, etc. so you can work on your equitation anywhere

Hassle-Free Returns

SmartPak Returns

We put our products to the test in our barns and on our horses, so we're confident that you'll be thrilled with your purchase. However, we know that life in the barn can sometimes be unpredictable. That's why we've created a stress-free return policy. If you purchase an item and it doesn't meet your expectations, we want to know about it, take care of you and give you your money back.

Free Return Shipping on all Sized Items

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'!).

The Fine Print

We love our products and we're happy to take them back - even custom items. We'll happily take back everything from engraved halters to personalized jackets - even embroidered blankets that have been worn (minus the manure, please). But there are a few things we have to restrict returns on (silly federal regulations).

Undergarments
Health regulations require that undergarments (including bras) need to be in new condition (tags and packages intact) in order to be returned. (Even if it wasn't required, do you really want to shop from a store that takes back used undergarments?!)

Saddles
As riders, we know what a big investment a saddle is. That's why we're proud to offer the best Test Ride program in the business. You can keep our Test Ride saddles risk-free for five days, to really make sure you like the fit and the feel. We know that to truly try a saddle, you have to really ride in it. So go ahead and girth it up. Forget about wrapping your stirrup leathers. Try it with or without a saddle pad. Basically, treat it like you already bought it, so you can make sure you really want to. Because when you buy a saddle from us, we want to make sure you love it. Of course, we want our other customers to love their new saddles, too.
That's why we have a Test Ride option for each saddle we carry - so that all of the other saddles can stay in pristine condition, waiting for their new owners. For this reason, if you purchase a saddle outside the Test Ride program, it's still eligible for return, but must be free from any marks or damage.

So that's it. Seriously. Those are all of our "rules." Well, except the most important one - treating our customers the way we want to be treated. So if you have any questions or if there is anything we can do, please call us at 1-800-461-8898 or email CustomerCare@SmartPak.com. We are always happy to help.

    EquiFit ShouldersBack Lite™ is rated 4.2 out of 5 by 76.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Training Aid I’ve been wearing this during half my schooling rides and feel a big difference wearing it and not. My balance is much better on the flat and over fences. It’s breathable and comfy to wear, and the fit is perfect on my petite frame. As all Equifit products I’ve used, the quality is excellent.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great results but NOT comfortable Form follows function with this product, it definitely works! But since it looks kind of like, well, an undergarment, you might be inclined to wear it under your clothing. Look closely at the picture. There's a reason it's shown over a t-shirt: the straps are knife-edge sharp! There is NO WAY of wearing this over a bra or tank top; you need another shirt under it to protect your flesh. Which means another layer, maybe fine for winter but in summer you probably won't want to wear it. Also all the straps fasten with velcro and the leftover lengths curl up. Needs a major redesign, but great concept!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product and well worth the money! This product is great for those who struggle with slouchy shoulders! It’s fairly comfortable and really helps to subtlety remind you to keep your shoulders back. I wear it a couple of times a week and it does it’s job. When I don’t wear it, I am more cognizant of what my shoulders are doing and focus on keeping them where they would be with the shoulders back on. I would highly recommend this product! It would also be great for those that work in an office setting.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from This does the job! I went back and forth on ordering this because some people said it chafed or pinched. I didn't experience any of that, but I suspect some people fitted it too tight using it to hold their shoulders in place instead of fitting it so it only engaged when they slouched so your muscles can learn and develop. I ride an 18 hand jumper and he can get heavy. This helps me stay back and drive forward. I do get a little hip ache after riding now but I'm sure it is because I have a bad habit of giving one shoulder forward and my body needs to build up the weak muscles. I noticed a big difference in my horse too.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Posture help, but chafes. I recently bought this and used it at my first equitation show of the season, and it worked very good in the ring as a good reminder to keep my shoulder back. However, after it was on for a little while it really chafed my underarms and became very painful. I did have 2 shirts on underneath (it was cold) yet it still caused pain. This may have been my fault for keeping it on too long, but I don’t know what else I could do to fix this problem other than only keeping it on for VERY minimal time periods.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Product I had one for years and it finally fell apart. So this was a replacement. Ride in IT most of the time on the flat an jumping. Excellent posture support. Comfortable to wear and easy to adjust.
    Date published: 2017-07-11
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from works sooo well I bought this because I physically can't keep my shoulders back and this helped sooo much!!! My horse understood what I was asking him so much better, and I felt so much more confident. It does rub a little because my body automatically tries to fight it, but I think in the long run it will help a ton. One thin weird was that there were a lot of flaps because I had to size up, and I just tucked them under, but they did look a little weird.
    Date published: 2017-05-03
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Really works!! I tried this because my trainer is always telling me to keep my shoulders back. It really works! She loves the way it helps me to keep the shoulders back.
    Date published: 2017-05-02
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from excellent design I am using this for a bout month now and so far very happy with it. It is strong enough to correct my posture, yet soft enough that it doesn't cause any pain or irritation. Love it!
    Date published: 2016-12-07
    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not comfortable I bought this afew weeks ago and was really excited to try it out. Unfortunately it's not comfortable at all. The material they use for the straps that go around your shoulders is very stiff. Sadly, I had to rerun it.
