Ten years working with top medical and riding professionals have helped deliver a device powerful enough to affect muscle structures and dramatically improve body posture.

✔ Encourages better musculoskeletal alignment for improved balance, strength and nerve-flow

 Provides essential bio-feedback for a better understanding of how 'good posture' should feel - once established the brain can work towards subconscious correction

✔ Engendering a ‘core on’ posture for improved strength

✔ Lifts the diaphragm up and away from pelvic activity for lighter hand to horse contact

✔ Maintains shoulder blade position (scapulae), close to the chest wall, adding stability and strength to shoulder function 

✔ Encourages opening of the chest cavity for improved breathing

THE ULTIMATE GOAL

  • To generate a deeper brain-body connection and stronger more efficient engagement of core muscles

  • Achieve body symmetry and balance without thinking about it

  • Training the brain to subconsciously override the natural tendency to adopt the 'fetal position', when faced with perceived fear or danger and instead to automatically and subconsciously choose a well-balanced posture

  • Allowing your coach to concentrate on your riding technique rather than nagging about posture

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

    Surprising and Powerful Links Between Posture and Mood 

    WHAT IS GOOD POSTURE 

    MEDICAL FINDINGS

    International event rider TINA CANTON used our ClaviBrace® version of the Rider Gilet, along with our specially developed arm gaiter, after she broke her collarbone. And although Tina opted for surgical plating, her splintered bone provided a fragile fixing for the screws and metal plate. By wearing the ClaviBrace and gaiter, it strengthened the plate enough to give her the confidence to return to competition much faster than the eight weeks her surgeon had prescribed.

    This got Tina thinking, she loved how it improved her posture and could see, with some adjustment, how this would benefit riders.
    "I use the gilet for schooling and riding competition and my pupils wear it too, it makes teaching so much easier when I don't have to nag about posture!" says Tina. Read more...

    WHY IS GOOD POSTURE SO DIFFICULT TO ACHIEVE?

    Research by London surgeon and shoulder guru Mr Ian Bayley shows how important it is to identify wrong shoulder position and the consequences or ignoring it, read more about Scapular Dyskinesis (shoulder blades that wing outwards).
