One of the things we love about the Equiband System is that it can be used by all types of horses and ponies for a variety of different reasons. And we love hearing about how the Equiband has helped people and their horses. One of our lovely clients shared their story with us about the rehabilitation of an ex-racehorse named Bear…
“He’s really enjoyed his summer in the field and living out, putting on some grass belly, but the last few weeks he’s been back in and back to work. His groundwork is something that he enjoys and we get a lot of great beneficial progress from this for his transition from racehorse to riding horse. He’s very quick to learn and always tries hard and gives his best. He’s very athletic and it’s no surprise that he was a group 1 racehorse. I’m sure he will also be a 5 – star riding horse. We have been using the Equicore concepts system which is proving to be a great addition to our program. He is really lifting and using his abs with this which in turn makes him lift and work through his back and swing from behind. When under saddle you can really feel the difference.”
Bear is being re-trained by the super-talented Claire Townsend, of Racehorse Recharge. You can learn more the services that Claire offers on her website here at www.racehorse-recharge.co.uk

We love the work being done by Claire, as it can be difficult to re-home ex-racehorses and her services are optimising the chances of these horses being able to have a long and fruitful lives. We are glad that the Equiband System can play a small part in the rehabilitation of these incredible horses.
