ProSix is the only training and rehabilitation system that focuses on the connection of the whole horse! This system of wide knitted and ventilated elastic bands connects your horse front-to-back and side-to-side. ProSix builds strength through isometric and concentric exercise produced by the horse’s movement with the gentle resistance of the elastic. ProSix connects the horse, enhancing proprioception, sometimes referred to as the sixth sense; creating whole body awareness. ProSix calms with steady, gentle pressure to relieve stress and anxiety. ProSix encourages correct posture with strategically placed support; improving balance and rhythm.
Elevate well-being and performance with ProSix: the holistic solution for equine sensory, neurological, and muscular rehabilitation.
ProSix builds overall strength through resistance training produced by the horse’s movement. ProSix use builds muscle, reduces fat, and improves connective tissue including fascia and tendons. ProSix provides low-impact exercise with smooth and constant tension that is easy on joints. ProSix builds core strength and supports the back with a wide abdominal band to assist lift and support, as the rear band produces hind end engagement.
ProSix was named for its ability to improve proprioception! ProSix is the only product that improves communication between the central nervous system and all parts of the body. ProSix stimulates proprioception to provide stability, maintain balance, and improve posture, agility, and movement control.
ProSix helps a horse to balance both physically and mentally. The supportive framing of the elastic bands surrounding the horse encourages correct posture; straighter and balanced with her weight equally distributed between all four feet. The deep touch pressure of the bands is calming, reducing tension and anxiety.
A key effect of elastic resistance training is a measured improvement to the animal’s endurance, coordination, and strength in movement. The four interconnected bands of ProSix enhance proprioception, create increased awareness to muscle movements and posture, and reinforce security and confidence in the horse as it trains, exercises, and reconditions. Improvements in the horse’s structure and movement are sustained as the horse builds strength to maintain these improvements. ProSix will help you build a better horse.
There are many reasons to consider starting a reconditioning program for your horse. For all the reasons we have mentioned in previous sections, ProSix is a safe, effective way to begin. Starting your new program with ProSix means you begin by encouraging straightness and a more upright posture. These are two huge components that are addressed immediately. The ultimate goal should be to have a more balanced horse with ProSix.
ProSix can be very instrumental in jump starting most rehabilitation programs by it’s ability to help your horse by simply wearing it. It can be used during stall rest and supervised turnout for limited amounts of time with gradual progression. While the ProSix is being worn, he is reminded of proprioception, posture, weight bearing and comforted by the effect of deep touch pressure from the elastic.
