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.
We're sorry, but certain colors/sizes are sold out and are no longer available.

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 14.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Works for us My horses like this massage pad. Follow the directions about letting your horse get used to the sound and vibration on a low setting - and don't tie them in case they have a reaction to the small noise. I fed my horses the first time I used this, with their halters on and me holding the leadline... and they munched away for the duration of time...pausing once in awhile to "listen". Nice device. Pricey, but useful.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from When it worked, it did not give much of a massage The battery, fully charged, lasted about 15 mins. When it did work, it did not seem to five the horse much of a massage. I sent it back!

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not a useful product First, it did not massage my horses back. It was more like something buzzing. Second, the battery would not hold more than a 15 min charge. Returned it.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing! My husband bought this for me/my horse about 2 years ago. I was a skeptic and planned on returning, but thought I would try it. Within minutes of the massager being on the horse, he totally relaxed. I was immediately sold and love this product! I've let my friends borrow the massager and I highly recommend them purchasing for their equines!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Everyday massage My horse loved this pad the very first time I put it on her. Her quality of movement has improved with regular use. Her attitude and touchiness has improved as well. This pad is a great addition to my scheduled massages for her. I also have the Massage Mitt, which I wish SmartPak would carry! For a horse with any soreness or stiffness issues I this pad is heavenly!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from So Far, So Good I haven't had this massage pad long enough to tell how its going to hold up - the cover seems like it might not hold up to everyday use though....The unit makes a slight noise that my horses picked up on immediately...I found that feeding them while I turned the pad on low and then adjusted it to medium helped them to ignore it completely, at least for a while.I'm hoping this investment will turn out to be a good choice - its not cheap, but I figure I can use it on my back too maybe!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Better than weekly chiropractic! After only 5 sessions, this massage pad has paid for itself. It keeps my hunter/jumper's back soft between human therapy sessions which we have been able to significantly cut back on. And every horse at the barn who has tried it practically falls asleep when it does its magic. Great purchase.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from My horse loves his massages! I have had the equilibrium massage pad for over 2 years...I wish smartpak had carried it when I bought it but now i can send my friends to my favorite store to get their own. I had to go though the distributor after a friend had recommended it to me. I purchased it for my horse to help warm up his back before riding in the winter. It help immensely! He starts off our rides soft & supple like we have warmed up for a long time. He enjoys his time in the pad. I put it on and he drifts of into la la land. He almost looks disappointed when it stops! It is very quiet when its on even the high speed, I have to sometimes put my ear next to it to hear it. The battery stays charged for a good number of uses. We have tried it on multiple horses in the barn and none of them were afraid of it. I have even put it on a chair & sat on it.. it feels great :)

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Product, My Horse LOVES it! I purchased the "Test Ride" option. It was a great way for me to make sure the product worked for me and my horse. I used the massage pad before riding and my horse just LOVED it. He would pass out immediately on the cross ties. I used it for about 15 minutes before riding and I really noticed a difference in the quality of our warmup and my horse's general attitude. I mean, who doesn't love a massage?! My horse does not have any pre-existing back conditions but I decided to try the Equilibrium Massage Pad because the price was right and I liked how portable it is.I've also started bringing it with me to shows, it helps my horse get nice and relaxed before the crazy warmup ring adventure. I would definitely recommend trying this pad!
