The Pro-Core Trainer is a numnah based system of two bands which are secured around the abdomen and hindquarters. The bands stimulate receptors in the hair and skin to recruit the underlying musculature of the core stabilisers.
The Pro-core Trainer from Thermatex has been developed in conjunction with equine healthcare professionals and experienced horse trainers. The Pro-core trainer will encourage and improve :
Equal stepping of the hind limbs,
Engagement of the hind quarters,
Improved posterior pelvic rotation,
Overall performance and interaction between horse and rider
How is this achieved?
Core stability relates to the capacity of specific trunk muscles of the back and abdomen to assist in the maintenance of good posture and balance during stance and movement. Good core stability in the horse is of particular importance. Strong core muscles can reduce unnecessary loading on the spine and may assist the horse in coping with the weight of the tack and rider on their backs in varying challenging athletic equestrian disciplines, with the aim of reducing mechanical back pain.
The Pro-Core Trainer may be used on the lunge or under saddle. Always ensure your horse is compliant with the Pro-Core Trainer unridden before mounted exercise commences.

Important information. Use with caution and as necessary under guidance of a equestrian healthcare professional. Do not use on horses with known lameness, neck/ back pathology or neurological disorder. If your horse reacts adversely to use of the Pro-Core Trainer discontinue use and seek advice from your veterinary professional.
