Equilibrium Products Equine Massage Pad

The Equilibrium Massage Pad was developed through clinical trials at Myerscough College, UK. The innovative design provides effective, affordable equine massage. Proven to improve back flexibility and promote relaxation in horses, the Equilibrium Massage Pad was created to help a successful ex-racehorse.

How does the Massage Pad work? 

The Equilibrium Massage Pad has three different settings, which can be selected easily from the controller. This allows you to select the intensity of the program to suit your horse. Each program has three types of massage: pulsing, vibration and stroking, which ensures muscles are worked in different ways.


● The low setting can be used to cool down after work.
● The medium setting is ideal to warm up muscles before exercise.
● The high setting for when your horse requires a more intense massage.


Each session will last for 30 minutes however, this can be manually stopped at any time.

It comes in a handy carry bag, which makes it ideal for use at home and away. It is easy to store in the tack room and can be wiped clean. The bag also has storage spots which can be used for items such as the battery and charger.

It can be used on its own or in conjunction with the hand-held Massage Mitt or the Massage Mitt Hotspot for an all over massage.

If you have a pony under 14hh or 5’6 rug sizes, you may want to look at the Pony Massage Pad. Alternatively, if your horse is over 16.2hh in 6’6 rugs and above you may want to look at our XL Massage Pad.

 The Equilibrium Massage Pad can be used for:

  • Horses on box rest to maintain good blood flow
  • After exercise to help support recovery
  • Before exercise as part of warm up
  • At a show to relax after travelling
  • On your horse’s day off as part of a maintenance programme
  • Anytime as a reward.

Clinical Trials

As part of our commitment to research and product development, the Equilibrium Massage Pad was tested by Myerscough College in Lancashire, UK.

The results, following six weeks of testing showed that the massage pad offers significant benefits to working horses, improving back flexibility and promoting relaxation and can show an increase in stride length.

Test Methods

The trial itself consisted of high performance horses where the effects of massage were investigated. Firstly the horses were measured for signs of stress/relaxation immediately before, during and after the application of the massage pads over a six week period. Secondly, the horses were assessed in terms of flexibility and suppleness. There were two groups of horses – a treated group and a control group.

Back flexibility was assessed using the ‘Arch Dip Test’. The test involves the use of pressure stimulus to generate a reflex in the horses’ back. Pressure applied to a specific region in the spinal area results in the horse ‘dipping’ away from the pressure, with a more flexible back allowing the horse to exhibit a greater ability to dip away from the source of the pressure. The arch test involves the application of pressure to the horses’ midline, in order to stimulate an upwards arch reflex in the horses’ back away from the source of pressure. Similarly, a more flexible back allows the horse to exhibit a greater ability to arch the back upwards away from the source of the pressure. The horses that had used the pad showed a significant improvement in back flexibility of approx 46%.

The horses also had their heart rates monitored. It was shown that the horses wearing the massage pad had their heart rates reduced and maintained a state of relaxation during treatment.
