For Relaxed Riding: The TRP by Passier
The horse-friendly Trapezius Relief Pad (in brief: TRP) was developed by the well-known Dressage Trainer Eberhard Weiß and perfected in close collaboration with Passier. Special features of the TRP in comparison to other pads: In the area of the sensitive rear part of the trapezius muscle the pad has an oval recess on each side. These recesses provide demonstrable pressure relief: the horse can breath more freely and snort more contentedly, furthermore back activity and muscle development can be improved. The TRP can also be used prophylactically against over-sensitive reactions to the saddle.
The TRP has been tested at the famous Graf-Lehndorff-Institute for Equine Sciences at the Veterinary Faculty of the University of Vienna and found to have a clearly positive effect. The studies confirmed that use of the pad led to relaxation and better suppleness of the horse in all gaits as well as having a very good effect on well-being and ability to perform. Successful riders such as European Champion Ingrid Klimke, Hubertus Schmidt, Marcus and Johannes Ehning, Jody Bosteels and Nicole Persson are using the TRP on a daily basis.
This is how: Place the TRP between the numnah and the saddle when tacking up. Please note: It is not positioned directly on the horse’s back!
The Trapezius Relief Pad (TRP) is available in Black and in White from selected Passier dealers. The addresses of our dealers can be found at www.passier.com.
