A RESISTANCE BAND :rofl::rofl::rofl::rofl::rofl:


My horse had a high ligament tear and an evulsion fracture. He is also a lazy boy who does not like to use his hind end unles really pushed there. The vet recommended the equi core bands for his rehab. They have definitely made a difference in his way of travel, fitness, and musculature. I liken them to having a physical therapist say to him, “Now, tighten your abs; now use your butt” in a way that he understands. He has made a full recovery for flat work and feels the best he has felt in years. The vet wants me to continue to use them on 1 or 2 rides a week for about 15 minutes to reinforce what he has learned.
As someone who has been doing the PT exercises for their back for 40 years so that my muscles never forget where they are supposed to be and how they are supposed to work, I understand where she is coming from.
