Additional Information.

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

The Equilibrium Massage Pad was tested by Myerscough College in Lancashire, UK.

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

Test Methods

The trial investigated the effects of massage on well-schooled horses. Signs of stress or relaxation were measured immediately before, during and after the application of the Equilibrium Horse Massage Pad 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.

The horses that had used the Massage Pad showed a significant improvement in back flexibility of 46%. The horses also had their heart rates monitored as a measure of relaxation.

55 Equilibrium Therapy Massage Pad
Verified Purchase

By on 19 September 2020

I bought this massage pad because my daughter, who is an equine vet and competes BE, has one and thinks it is having a positive impact on her horses. From what I have seen so far in my horses, I agree. Viovet was competitive on price and really fast delivery, as usual.

I have started using this because my horse has been cold backed and it works if you put this on just before you ride

Fantastic product. I can't get over the different it makes to mare. I put it on her before riding and she loosens up so much quicker. It's great to take to shows and use before and after riding aswell.

45 Massage pad
Verified Purchase

By on 22 April 2018

I like the look of this pad and the fact that it’s lightweight and easy to keep clean. I also like the carry bag, easy to swing over your shoulder and stays there if your hands are full.
The whole effect is an item that is easy to use and maintain. When in use it makes very little noise and because the controls are housed within a pocket I have had to check that the cycle is complete. It would be better if there was an external sign that it had finished . Also I was slightly surprised at the amount of heat generated on the horses back and I have not yet used the highest setting. It is a one size fits all option and I personally would like it to be slightly longer. I have only had the pad a short time but use it on a horse with kissing spines and sacroiliac damage. I am hopeful that it will help him with longer use.

55 Equilibrium battery charger
Verified Purchase

By on 17 January 2018

It's a battery charger. It charges the battery. It does the job. Price was good. One of the few places where one can buy a charger without the battery. As always delivery from VioVet was swift and efficient.
I assume the horse likes it, to be honest I doubt she can tell the difference between different battery chargers.

Battery and charger

Lisa Parrish

I have the original style pad from many years ago and need a replacement charger. Will this work? Thanks

  • VioVet Staff

Hi Lisa,

Thanks for your question. Unfortunately the new charger will not work with the older style Equilibrium Therapy Massage Mitt (navy in colour) and battery. If you need a new charger you would need to also purchase a new battery.

Kind regards,

Bridget.
