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 Lite™ offers the same upper back support as ShouldersBack™, in a 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 rider’s improve posture, 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 Lite™ is rated 4.2 out of 5 by 73.
    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.

    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.

    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.
