Frustrated with posture and want to improve your riding position? Then you'll love this gilet-style 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 deliver this unique and powerful posture correction device capable of transforming shoulder, pelvic and spinal alignment.

Understanding how good posture feels is an important first step in achieving your best position in the saddle. Wearing the Rider Gilet does this by physically adjusting posture and providing essential biofeedback.

Although fashioned to look like a regular gilet waistcoat, internally, a variety of components combine to draw the shoulders back in line with hips and lift the diaphragm. Core muscles are engaged, transforming symmetry and rider position. Musculoskeletal strength and efficiency are improved instantly bringing game-changing results with reduced risk of injury through fatigue. 

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 is deteriorating.

OTHER FEATURES:

✔ Prevents the natural tendency to go into a foetal-like forward slumped position and instead promotes an upright balanced seat in the saddle.

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

✔ Helps maintain shoulder stability and strength through an arrangement of internal straps that work to hold shoulder blades (scapulae) in at 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!
