Help maximize your horse’s topline, core strength, stride evenness, and thoracic lift with the EquiBand System from Equicore Concepts. Suitable for all disciplines, this is the first product of its kind that acts as both a surcingle attachment and a riding tool to improve your horse’s core stability.
Abdominal Band or AB sits well behind the rider’s leg. Its function is to stimulate the abdominal musculature during locomotion. The position of this band is especially indicated for horses that have recovered from a colic surgery, have poor (inverted) posture and in clinical cases such as diagnosed conditions of the back including “kissing spine.” The second and longer Equiband settles in the point of least resistance, above the hock and just below the level of the stifle. Its function is to make the horse aware of the position of his hind limbs in locomotion and to enhance proprioception. The position of this band is especially indicated for horses with asymmetrical hind limb movement, poor engagement and poor development of major muscle groups such as biceps femoris (which is associated with movement) as well as horses recovering from diagnosed musculoskeletal or neurological conditions like EPM.
