About the Band

Our Premium Training Bands are made exactly to our specification. Find out how they are different to standard off-the-shelf resistance band;

  • Nearly twice as thick as normal heavy duty resistance band

    • We have spent time researching and testing the perfect thickness and strength for best results on the horse with our system

  • Anti-snap and Anti-slip

    • Much less likely to move, fold or roll - unlike standard nonspecific resistance band ​

  • The perfect texture

    • The right amount of grip and so the band doesn't slip out the buckles, but also soft on sensitive skin and won't catch their hair

  • Latex-free

    • Non-allergenic, odourless, powder and toxin free​

  • 6 month guarantee on our Premium band

    • Should failure occur within 6 months of purchase, claim a free spare length of band to replace it

The resistance band system works to increase engagement, activate and lift the core to help build and maintain topline, and ultimately condition the horse to be able to maintain and control self carriage. The system must be used regularly and along side correct training and exercise programs to achieve these results.


It is recommended to check your horse has no underlying musculoskeletal or health issues before commencing use of the Training Bands system. The system can be used as part of a rehabilitation program following injury or ailment, but it is recommended you seek advice from your veterinarian and/or physiotherapist on a suitable exercise program and inclusion of the System.
