A lightweight and portable massage pad, clinically proven to improve back flexibility and promote relaxation. Effective massage for ponies under 140 cm.
The Pony Massage Pad allows an effective massage session for your smaller pony. Based on the popular ‘original’ Massage Pad, the Pony Massage Pad has been specifically designed for ponies and short coupled horses. It is ideal for ponies under 140 cm.
Four massage motors are positioned in the target areas for ponies. There are two either side of the wither and another two just behind the saddle area. The careful design of the massage pad then facilitates the spread of the massage along the back muscle.
The Equilibrium Massage Pad was independently tested by Myerscough College in Lancashire, UK. The results, following six weeks of testing, showed that the Massage Pad offers significant benefits to horses. The horses in the trial were split into two groups. The control group wore the Massage Pad, but it wasn’t turned on. The other group had the Massage Pad turned on. These horses showed a significant improvement in back flexibility of 46%. The horses also had their heart rates monitored as a measure of relaxation.
The control panel allows you to select low, medium or high settings and as a result, you can choose the intensity of the program to suit your pony. Each program runs through a cycle of three different types of massage – pulsing, vibration and stroking – to ensure all muscles are worked in different ways.
In short, you can use the Pony Massage Pad before riding, after riding, or on a day off! Here are a few scenarios, where you could use the Pony Massage Pad:
