Jump Style Saddle Pad and Bum Building Bands for Horses
Saddle pad and band system encourages activation of the horse's core muscles.
Developed in Ireland in collaboration with equine vets, trainers and therapists. Application of the resistance bands whilst riding or lunging helps to activate the deep muscles that support the spine and encourages flexion of the hind quarters. When used in combination with a structured and progressive exercise regime the system encourages the horse to work over the back, engage the hind quarters and develop top line muscle.
Uses include general conditioning -as an aid to help strengthen the back and hind limbs, and in rehabilitation- under veterinary guidance following diagnosis of kissing spines, stifle weakness or sacroiliac discomfort.

Resistance band training can be used in a wide range of activities from work in hand, to lunging and long reining, under saddle, over poles and whilst hacking. The Equine Core Conditioning System has been developed for use with many different types of horse and can be incorporated into both general and rehabilitative training regimes. Examples of horses that have benefited from the system include sport horses, young horses, ex race horses, and horses rehabilitating from kissing spines, stifle weakness or sacroiliac discomfort.
