Why We Love This

The SmartPak Neck Stretcher is made of strong elastic which attaches to the girth and adjusts over the poll. This helpful training aid encourages your horse to drop his head, flex and stretch forward to the bit without encouraging the resistance and resentment of a nonelastic cord. Black.

    SmartPak Neck Stretcher is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 91.
    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Broke the first time I absolutely loved it the first time I used it, but as soon as I went to take it off the plastic on the snap broke. Managed to cut it off and tie another metal snap to the elastic and I still use that but its still not worth it.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent training tool! I’ve had this for about two months and already see such a drastic difference in my horse! She used to be hollow and constantly tense and now she works long and low.
    Date published: 2019-12-20
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very Happy I bought this for my TB mare who's still pretty green. I've used it lightly while lunging before our rides and it definitely encourages her to stretch down and use herself nicely. I leave it as loose as it can go, and I agree with some other reviewers that it seemed a little tight brand new, even for her 15.2 hand self (so she's no giant). I will say that caution should be used...my mare is a little claustrophobic and even very loose this caused her a little concern the first few minutes. Once she realized that she still could raise her head she was happy and moved forward nicely.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect size I’m so happy I purchased these. They have been working great and are so durable. I love the length and the options to tighten them.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Training aid that works I borrowed this neck stretcher from my trainer and decided to get my own. After 2 weeks of flat work in the stretcher, my mare is already showing better head placement and is more relaxed. For longevity purposes, it really needs metal hooks as opposed to plastic ones. I’ll have to see how long the plastic ones last. Overall for the price, I’m pleased with the purchase.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Solved my problem! The NECK STRETCHER has helped my 4 year old ANDALUSIAN to reach for his bit and push from his hind legs in a very gentle and gradual way. I am so happy with the amazing results we have obtained. The adjustments to the tension are easily made and can be done in small increments. My horse has improved his collection and his balance since using the NECK STRETCHER, I recommend it highly!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect tool to train proper position Help our horse to understand the best head and neck position at the different gaits
    Date published: 2019-06-04
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Does Exactly What I need it to Do After 4 years of riding my horse "correctly" to try and encourage him to stretch down, I was frustrated. My horse is an OTTB with lots of baggage. There was no convincing him that working with his head in a more neutral position was in any way more comfortable. My trainer had me use this device on him, and after a month of intermittent use, my horse is moving better than he ever has in his life. It literally took a gentle device that encouraged him to stretch his head down, to convince him that it was a better way to use his body. I'm impressed and recommend this product in educated hands for a horse that you cannot otherwise convince.
    Date published: 2019-05-22
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great tool I also use this as my "safety net" when my TB is being dumb in open spaces outside the ring. It doesn't let him look around like a giraffe for things to spook at!
    Date published: 2019-03-21
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works so well! I bought this not too long ago, and my horse already has so much more muscle! This product helped me a lot!
    Date published: 2018-08-22
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Product Working with a trainer and she suggested I get this to use for a few weeks. Easy. Cheap. Good tool.
    Date published: 2018-05-26
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from It really encouraged neck stretching I tried sliding side reins on my OTTB, usually they work great but this horse would bring his head in and up to avoid the contact. With the neck stretcher he reaches his neck down and out, and softens through his back. I also like that I can adjust it without getting off.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Simple and Perfect! Simple and straightforward design. Have been using it on a wide range of horses and it is long enough to start on a green horse or a bigger horse. Still holding up well after a couple weeks of regular use.
    Date published: 2017-10-06
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good quality, does what I need! I bought this about a month ago. It is good quality, and holding up great. The only thing I would change is to have a more heavy duty (potentially brass/metal) snap on the ends.
    Date published: 2017-08-15
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Effective, but a little flimsy. Works just as advertised and is very adjustable. However, the clip at the top that is supposed to maintain the length does not hold up forever. I now have to check my mare mid-lunge to make sure she isn't stretching one side more than the other (and she typically does after a while, but gives me "the look" so I know to stop her and readjust). It has a lot of give in the elastic, which I know she appreciates if she takes a misstep and needs her head to balance. Quick and easy to attach, so I appreciate that when I have time constraints. Overall, I give it a 4/5.
    Date published: 2017-07-15
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Tool EVER I bought this on the advise of my trainer to get my OTTB to learn to carry herself and not rest in my hands. She used to look rein lame at the trot and this tool has made a world of difference. She is finally developing the muscles to carry herself instead of leaning on men.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great tool This neck stretcher works well on my 17hh warmblood and can be shortened to fit a smaller horse as well.
    Date published: 2017-05-27
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Handy tool This is a good, gentle tool to remind my rather stubborn boy that he should lift the top of his neck, rather than lead with his chest. Now that he knows what it is, he hardly comes in contact with it. I use it every few rides. Very pleased.
    Date published: 2017-02-24
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works so well! I bought this a little while ago. It works great for my pony!
    Date published: 2016-06-01
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from easy to use I bought these after trying a friends pair. Super easy to use and adjust. My more obstinate horse won't give to them, but my other horse works great with the stretcher.
    Date published: 2016-04-30
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice product but... I wish the snaps were heavy duty. I've since seen other brands that come with the brass snaps instead of the plastic.
    Date published: 2016-02-09
    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Disappointed Have only been using this product a month and the little plastic clip has broken so it is unusable. I used it a lot, but didn't abuse it. Would have preferred a metal clip.
    Date published: 2016-01-10
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from We Love It! I bought this product to try and introduce my horse to side reins, but seeing the way he has reacted with this I think I might just stick with it! Rio was inconsistent with his head and I felt like I was beginning to lose control of what he did with his head carriage. I put this on and he was great, he reminded himself on what he is suppose to be doing and I didn't wear his mouth out in the least. I am not concerned with the plastic clips, I actually feel more safe with them.
    Date published: 2015-10-22
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it!!!! Let's just say my horse is a new horse he even loves it and it's helping him use his back a lot more!!
    Date published: 2015-05-15
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy to use and good quality! Purchased 2 of these for training use. Works greatand would recommend trainer use only or expert horse person.
    Date published: 2015-04-08
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great and effective product! I bought this recently after having positive results with my old mare. My new TB gelding loves it just as much!! Helps him use his back and is already making lasting impressions on his movement. I will say that the plastic clips are a bit difficult to use and it is a bit short for my big guy, wish it came with size options. None the less, I love it!
    Date published: 2015-03-03
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome product! I bought this to use on a thoroughbred with no topline muscles. He has really learned to carry himself much better after using this product to help him. I would recommend it to everyone! Great product with great results! The price is right as well...not too expensive for the quality and results seen!
    Date published: 2015-01-07
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Neck Stretcher Just as I expected good quality and well made. Works well.
    Date published: 2014-10-24
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Happy with this! I bought this to use with my Arab, trying to help him stretch down and lunge him with it for about 15 minutes. Easy to adjust, good quality for the price!
