What does Equiseat Aid do?

We all sit wonky in the saddle, either because of long-term cognitive habits, or because our horses and ponies make us that way.

Whatever the reason, wouldn’t it be great to be able to sit straighter, be more balanced and give your horse the best chance of moving correctly and fundamentally reducing the risk of injury and wear and tear? Of course, that’s what we would all love to achieve, right?

This is why the Equiseat Aid was born. It is designed to wrap around your stronger leg, to stop you from gripping up, allowing your hips to engage symmetrically, straightening your pelvis and engaging both seat bones in the saddle evenly, in turn also straightening the upper body. By reducing the grip in your stronger leg, the Equiseat Aid encourages your weaker leg to engage more.

The Equiseat Aid allows you to focus on what you're doing without having to consciously think about where straight is, and overtime it builds up the muscle memory so that when you take it off, your seat will stay in that straight position.

If your horse has struggled with back soreness, any hind leg lameness or just any general wear and tear that has come from ridden work. Then this simple to use product could help! It has been proven to reduce the number of physio visits a horse needs, as the fact that the rider is sitting straighter, means the horse can build muscles equally on both sides of their body, in turn making them stronger all over. 

The product is so simple to use which makes it easy for every day use, no matter the discipline or ability. Equiseat Aid has been developed with equine welfare and ethics very much in mind. We want to encourage more riders to take action when it comes to our responsibility for the direct impact we all have on our horse’s freedom of movement, minimising any injury or wear and tear and vastly improving the overall longevity of the ridden horse.


How do I know if I am unstraight?

Here are a few signs you or your horse may be unstraight:

1) Your horse is struggling to bend more on one rein than the other.

2) Your horse has more difficulty striking off one leg into canter than the other.

3) When jumping, your horse tends to drift the same way.

4) Your saddle is slipping to one side 

5) Your horse is more sore on one side of its body than the other

6) Maybe your horse is carrying its tail to one side


There may be other common signs but these are the major ones
