Frustrated with posture, want to improve your riding position? Then you'll love this gilet style technical training aid. Used internationally by elite riders, coaches and happy hackers alike.

Ten years working in association with leading medical and riding professionals has helped us deliver this unique powerful posture correction device capable of transforming shoulder, pelvic and spinal alignment.

Although fashioned to look like a regular gilet style waistcoat from the outside, internally, integrated components combine to draw shoulders back in line with hips, lift the diaphragm and switch those all-important core muscles on. Musculoskeletal strength and efficiently is improved, reducing risk of injury through fatigue. Rider position is transformed instantly bringing game changing results.

Understanding how good posture should feel is an all important first step in achieving your best position in the saddle. Wearing the Rider Gilet provides essential biofeedback helping you retain good symmetry long-term, through mechanically adjusting muscle memory and enabling you to focus more on your horses' action.

Depending on your reason for wearing the Rider Gilet, once good posture has been established you need only use it when you feel your posture in deteriorating.

OTHER FEATURES:

✔ Prevents the natural tendency to go into a foetal slumped position and instead an upright balanced position is achieved.

✔ Concealed components draw the shoulders back and lift the ribcage (diaphragm) up and away from pelvic activity, resulting in lighter hand-to-horse contact.

✔ Helps maintain shoulder strength and stability, through an arrangement of internal straps that work to hold shoulder blades (scapulae) to the chest wall.

✔ Encourages opening of the chest cavity for deeper breathing.

✔ Improves nerve-flow.

✔ Allows your coach to concentrate on your riding technique rather than nagging about posture.

Promotes a happier more confident horse/rider partnership!
