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!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from EquiFit Shoulders Back LIte I am happy with the product. If you want to use under clothing, must protect underarm from chaffing. I did get reminded to sit up and pull my shoulders back. good reminder.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Well made effective product. Very effective- the light version doesn't get too hot. Best over a shirt or it rubs but it does what it says.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from An Absolute Must Have After spending too much time at a computer, I had adopted a somewhat forward shoulder posture, and shoulder pain. I also was twisting one shoulder more forward than the other when riding and my horse was reacting poorly to it.During the first ride I felt like this product "called me out" on some habits I was not aware I had. You can certainly still move in it, but if you get out of position you can feel the brace, which has been a great reminder to me to correct my posture in the saddle. It also helped me to anchor my elbows so I could offer a more steady contact to my horse.I have worn it both under and over a shirt and it has been comfortable.I recommend this for anyone who wants to improve their posture both in the saddle and out!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from It works! I decided to buy one of these vests to see if it would improve my posture (I have horribly round shoulders). It does pull my shoulders back and I even find myself walking and sitting straighter after I take it off. The only drawback is that it is not very comfortable. After a couple of hours in it my armpits are screaming. But I can deal with that if it corrects my posture. No pain, no gain, right?

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from You CANNOT live without this product! Shoulders Back is an amazing product! Cures poor posture immediately. Do not hesitate in purchasing! I wear my Shoulders Back riding, while working out, and sitting at my desk!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent This is a great item. I just ordered a smaller size by mistake and cannot wait to get the right size so I can use it during my horseback riding. the LITE is really lightweight and great for summer. I am happy that I ordered this.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great aide I purchased this at the advice of my trainer...I've always struggled with my shoulders and upper body when I ride ever since I was young child. You can definitely feel your shoulders pulled back when you have the "ShouldersBack" on. You can tighten it to your desired amount - I often pull the straps tight when riding and then reduce the amount of pull when I'm around the barn, but it will still slightly pull your shoulders back. As far as the comfort level, considering that it is physically pulling your shoulders back, I think its as comfortable as possible. I won't wear it against my skin, as this could cause some skin irritation from rubbing; I often wear a shear t-shirt under it, then put another shirt over it and you can't tell I have it on. Overall, I am happy with the level of comfort. Lastly, my trainer says that it has really improved my upper body. Most importantly to me, it reduces the degree of shoulder rounding and I feel more aware of my shoulder rounding when I am doing it.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product!! I bought this product to help with upper back pain and to help keep my shoulders back when riding. It really does the trick for me. Relieves pain and helps to keep shoulders in the right position, instead of slumping forward. Highly recommend this product if you don't have a great upper body posture or pain between your shoulders blades. Quite comfortable and very adjustable to fit your specific body shape.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from shoulders back Nice product. Helps improve your overall posture. Adjustable by velcro. Expensive, but the only product of its type that I could find. It's worth the try, especially if you have back problems because improved posture can help with that.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Works but not the most comfortable I've worn the ShouldersBack a few times now - I got the summer version for obvious reasons. While it does remind you to put your shoulders back, it does chafe the insides of my arms. I find myself only willing to wear it for short periods of time or over a t-shirt - which kinda makes the summer version pointless, as I'm not going to wear it on the outside of my clothing, and then I end up with two shirts on. It might be a size issue - I got the medium, which I think is right, but I'm on the smaller side of the range, so maybe if you are bigger it will fit differently. All in all, worthwhile, but not perfect.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Bought it in Black I use this during training and riding often as it helps remind me to have correct posture. It should be marketed to the dance population. I know I could have used it when younger in both dance and riding.

    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...
