Frustrated with your posture? Then you'll love this stylish design patented horse rider position correction gilet - used internationally by elite riders, coaches and happy hackers. 

Ten years association with leading medical and riding professionals has delivered an extremely powerful device. This unique bracing jacket combines mechanical aligning of the torso with biofeedback and gaining an understanding of how correct posture should feel. Through establishing this, musculoskeletal memory can be retained for some time after the gilet is removed and adopting an on, off approach avoids the dependency often associated with traditional bracing.

Make no mistake, this gilet will have you sitting like a professional rider. Powerful components, incorporated within, combine to draw back shoulders instantly and in line with hips, whilst those all-important core muscles get the work-out of their lives. Rider position is transformed bringing game-changing results.

TECHNICAL STUFF...

✔ Improves musculoskeletal alignment promoting better balance.

✔ Strengthens core engagement and improves nerve-flow.

 Provides essential bio-feedback for us to recognise how correct posture should feel.

 Prevents the natural tendency to go into a foetal like slumped position when faced with danger or fear and instead an upright balanced position is maintained.

✔ 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.

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

... Promoting a happier more confident horse-rider partnership!
