How does the Massage Pad work?Â
The Equilibrium XL Massage Pad has three different settings, which can be selected easily from the controller. This allows you to select the intensity of the program to suit your horse. Each program has three types of massage: pulsing, vibration and stroking, which ensures muscles are worked in different ways.
The Equilibrium XL Massage Pad can be incorporated into your warming up and cooling down routine.
- The low setting can be used to cool down after work.
- The medium setting is ideal to warm up muscles before exercise.
- The high setting for when your horse requires a more intense massage.
Each session will last for 30 minutes however, this can be manually stopped at any time.
It comes in a handy carry bag, which makes it ideal for use at home and away.Â It is easy to store in the tack room and can be wiped clean. The bag also has storage spots which can be used for items such as the battery and charger.
It can be used on its own or in conjunction with the hand-held Massage Mitt or the Massage Mitt Hotspot for an all over massage.
If you have a pony under 14hh or 5â€™6 rug sizes, you may want to look at the Pony Massage Pad. Alternatively, if you have a big pony or small horse, you may want to look at the Standard Massage Pad.

The Equilibrium Massage Pad was tested by Myerscough College in Lancashire, UK.
The results showed that the Massage Pad offers significant benefits to working horses, which include improving back flexibility and promoting relaxation and can show an increase in stride length.
The trial investigated the effects of massage on well-schooled horses. Signs of stress or relaxation were measured immediately before, during and after the application of the Equilibrium Horse Massage Pad over a six-week period. Secondly, the horses were assessed in terms of flexibility and suppleness. There were two groups of horses â€“ a treated group and a control group.
The horses that had used the Massage Pad showed a significant improvement in back flexibility of 46%. The horses also had their heart rates monitored as a measure of relaxation.
