  • £155.00


Frustrated with your posture? Then you'll love this stylish patented gilet. With powerful components hidden within, shoulders are instantly drawn back in line with hips. Posture is transformed and those all-important core muscles get working.

Ten years listening to medical and riding professionals has resulted in a device that can actively correct posture and bring truly life and game-changing results for both you and your horse. 

TECHNICAL STUFF...

✔ Encourages better musculoskeletal alignment, improves balance, strength and nerve-flow.

 Provides essential bio-feedback, re-establishes how 'good posture' should feel and then, over time, even when not wearing the gilet, your posture will subconsciously self-correct without you even thinking about it.

 Prevents the natural tendency to assume a fetal (foetal) position when faced with danger or fear and instead, an upright well-balanced position is maintained. The same is true for any of us who tend to slump!

✔ Engenders a ‘switched-on posture', giving stronger more efficient engagement of core muscles.

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

✔ Maintains good overall shoulder position, holding shoulder blades (scapulae) close to the chest wall, providing stability and strength. 

✔ Encourages opening of the chest cavity for deeper breathing.

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

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