We're bringing you this product at the lowest price allowed by the manufacturer so you won't find it cheaper anywhere else. This also means we can't apply any further 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'!).

Instructions for Use:

Massage Therapy

By using the Magnetic Back Pad first you are helping to relieve the pain and by using the Massage Pad, you can begin to improve the flexibility by mobilising these stiff tight muscles.

The EQUILIBRIUM Therapy® Massage Pad has taken over two years to design and develop and this product has most certainly been worth the wait.

Each massage session lasts for approximately 30 minutes and runs through a cycle of three different massage modes. It will pulse, stroke and vibrate. This ensures that the muscles are worked in different ways within every session for maximum benefit. Not numbing the back by having the same continuous vibration. There are three intensity settings:

Low - (this is the default setting when you switch it on).This setting is good to get the horse/pony used to the pad and also for cooling the back down after exercise.

Medium - This setting is ideal to warm muscles prior to exercise

High - This setting is very intense and helps alleviate back problems

Although the programme will last for 30 minutes you can stop at anytime during the programme. We have found that it has a beneficial effect after only 10 minutes.

The battery charges in a few hours and lasts for at least 6 sessions. This, combined with the product's light weight and nylon carry bag, makes it very portable, so can be used at shows and events, as well as all round the yard. It covers the horse's back from withers to quarters, and being soft and pliable it sits comfortably on the back of a wide range of horses.

Horses and ponies really enjoy using the back pad and when we think of all they give us, it is nice to think that we can do something as nice as this for them.

    Equilibrium Massage Pad is rated 3.9 out of 5 by 15.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Review I just tried this on my older OTTB who has a variety of spinal arthritic issues and gets a bit cold backed in the winter. Pros: - I liked the fit and the way the straps sat. This new configuration seems to be a better fit from the prior version that had 3 belly straps; one of which sat toward the flank and always reminded me of a potential bucking strap. Pad did not shift or slip during use. - Good Vibrations: Vibrations were strong on my pad. I could see it moving and could feel it quite well with my hand on top of and below the pad. - Location: On my horse it got the upper thoracic vertebrae and the lumbar vertebrae Neutrals: - Noise: You can hear the pad vibrating. It's not what I would describe as loud but if you have a particularly spooky horse it may take awhile to get used to it. My horse had no problems though. Cons: - Location: In a perfect world I would love to have the middle of the pad vibrate so it gets the middle of the back where the saddle sits. There are vibrating mechanisms in the front of the pad and the back, but not the middle. - Size: For a long backed horse like mine it's a bit short - ends a good bit before the sacral vertebrae. So fit will depend on size of your horse.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Returned it I tried the Equilibrium Massage Pad using SmartPak's "Test Ride" program, and I'm glad I did. It seemed like a far more inexpensive way to relax a horse's back/loins, as compared to a few other massage products that cost thousands. I liked that it covered more area on the horse's back. The reason I returned it is that it does not vibrate strongly enough to do anything! The product recommends starting on the lowest setting to avoid frightening/spooking your horse, which I did; no issue there, he didn't even feel it. I quickly turned it up and had it on the high setting. I placed my hand under each of the four massage points and none of them were strong enough to do much. At a medium or low setting, you can hardly feel them at all. Although the pad covers a lot of area on the horse's back, the vibration does not effectively run through the pad - so you are left with four distinct and separate points of barely-there vibration.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Equilibrium Massage Pad I got this on the 2 week trial offer. Tried it on all 3 horses: an Anglo-Arab 29 yrs old, a Hanoverian 4yrs old, and a Connemara Pony-Hanoverian cross also 4 yrs old. None of the horses particularly liked it. Two of the three are very sensitive/ticklish. The third just kept trying to gt away from it. The pad was tried on various days and for various times but with no success. I was disappointed because a friend has one and her horses really like it! Since I did not keep it, I really cannot rate the quality, value nor the durability. Thank you SmartPak for the 2 week free trial.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from relaxing................... I bought this for a ottb with back problems (very tight back). His back was not as tight after his massage and he stood perfectly still while he had his spa time. I have hope that after using this consistently that his back will improve.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from In LOVE with this massage pad! Last season I was able to utilize my trainer's pad and it made all the difference in the world for my horses. I purchased this pad and my mounts are so much happier when we start working after spending a few minutes before saddling up with this pad.
