The EQ BANDS Story

Inspired By

I have been involved in equestrian sport for as long as I can remember and have been lucky enough to work with some of the best horses and riders in the world. Through my career as a soft tissue therapist for performance horses and riders, I quickly realised the vast majority of issues with the horses was coming from the riders. Rider strength and conditioning is now fairly common place with elite riders, and is fast becoming more widely accepted and embraced across all disciplines and levels. However, with riders often having very little time and resources for my programmes I started to try and be resourceful with bands and ball's. The riders of all levels loved it, simple to use, yard, home and a million exercise options. They have changed my biomechanics sessions and how riders feel in the saddle to an extent even I could not have imagined. Seeing that lightbulb from riders when they feel what coaches have been teling them for all those years and then the horses eyes, amost saying thank you. That will never get old!

In biomechanics sessions I would always be saying, 'remember what you felt with the bands or balls' and immediately it would change the riders position and focus. That's where the thought behind bands that can be used both on and off a horse came from. When riders or coaches would ask me what equipment I would recommend for every rider - I couldn't decide between a ball or bands. However often riders that had these elastic bands or balls would hide them away as they didn't look good around the house.   

Enabling riders to workout both on and off the horse, anywhere, anytime, with stunning, bespoke and well thought products was always the goal.  

That is why and how EQ BANDS ™ was born.
