Equicore concepts Equiband
The Equiband system® is not a training tool or gimmick!
The concept of its use for core strengthening and movement retraining in the horse is based on scientifically-researched and validated techniques used in human conditioning and rehabilitation, and on results from peer-reviewed published studies of use of the Equiband system® for equine core strengthening and movement retraining. These studies include the use of resistance bands in core muscle activation, along with individually-designed exercise programmes by veterinarians and professional therapists.
The Equiband system is now available to hire. The complete system is available for you to use, including the ‘Thoracic sling band’ which cannot be bought by general public and is only available to purchase by RAMP registered physiotherapists.
The system will be fitted to your horse and an exercise plan will be discussed before the equipment is left with you.
The fitting session will take around 30-45 minutes and includes band desensitisation as well as a discussion of recommended use and exercise plan and costs £25.
The system costs £25/week to hire and can be hired on a rolling contract or for a set term.
Travel charges may apply for clients residing outside 15 miles of the clinic address (HG3 4EU)

Contact for more information regarding hire of equipment – your pet must have had a minimum of one treatment session with me prior to hire of equipment – this ensures the correct settings and applications can be chosen.
