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

A summerweight version of the original ShouldersBack!

ShouldersBack Lite gently pulls, aligns, and holds your shoulders into the “correct” position, training your mind and muscles to keep a taller stance even after you slip it off -- just like the popular original.

Favorite Features

  • Made from PowerMesh it is a soft sheer variation on the original
  • Lightweight and flexible
  • 100% elastic construction with VELCRO® closure ensures complete freedom of movement

Hand wash, line dry.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Helpful product I bought this for motorcycle riding to give me some shoulder support. After about an hour of riding I would get tension across my shoulders but the Equifit ShouldersBack helped that and extended my ride with less tension but does not eliminate the tension. Glad I bought it.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Useful Rider Training Aid My grandmother fussed at me for slouching as a child, now my instructor fusses at me for slouching as an adult! The ShouldersBack has been a useful training aid for myself to assist in creating new (better) habits!

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Just o.k. I have worn this a few times and don't really like it.  The straps do cut into your arms even with a shirt under it.  I think this is partly caused by the velcro that is used, there is no padding on it or finished edges, andy by the way it is constructed.  The straps get pulled toward the center of your body causing it to cut into your arms.  If the back were put together differently it could pull the straps more away from the center of your body and sit on the front part of your shoulder.  I think this would also make it more effective in pulling your shoulders back.  I'm going to see if I can take it apart and sew it together better and put some padding on the straps.  If that doesn't work I will make my own.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Product! LOVE IT! Purchased this for my daughter after months of begging to get it. Now that she has it, she wears it everytime she rides. It definitely does what it's designed to do; it prevents her from letting her shoulders come forward when her & her horse are jumping! Not to mention, it has even improved her posture OFF her horse! That makes me one happy Momma!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from great product! I have bought 3 of these and they always end up disappearing, i think my barn mates are taking them! Great product, it really does help get your shoulders back.However, a little disappointed with the sizing. Don't order a small if you're an adult. I'm 5'3" about 100lbs and ordered what i thought was an adult small, nope, its a child's size. it does fit me but if you're an average adult order a medium. I called SmartPak and Liz told me if it doesn't ft just send it back and they'll send me a medium.I can always depend on SmartPak, they have the best customer service!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from You will enjoy....!! Best purchase I made! I have been told not to get this because they did not see the value of it. I first started noticing that I needed to keep my shoulders back with riding but I even found myself needing it at work. And it wasn't that I REALLY wasn't putting my shoulders back but that I was putting them back WRONG! INSTANT RELIEF of back pain! I was so glad that I got this! I gradually worked myself to wearing it 6 hours a day so far to get my muscles use to it and hopefully train them to not need it soon! Really helped correcting it though. Would recommend wearing a t-shirt underneath it!

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not Comfortable for Riding I tried wearing this over my shirt once while riding (it was a 1 hour jumping lesson) and I did think it helped keep my shoulders back, however, it rubbed my underarms raw. I still use it occasionally when I'm sitting at my desk to remind me not to slouch, but it's not comfortable enough for moving around in.

    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...
