Hey, we are Lisa & Morten, the founders of
We are so happy that you are interested in our Nørsholm pads.
How did we come up with the idea of 'balance pads for horses'?
Hey, we're Lisa & Morten, the founders of NØRSHOLM EQUESTRIAN®. Thank you so much for trusting our Nørsholm balance pads!
Our journey began when we realized that there were no balance pads specifically tailored to the needs of horses. In addition, even balance pads developed for humans were often used in balance training with horses, what we regarded as a total mismatch. The more we researched about it, the more we understood the need of a tailor-made horse pad and started to follow our vision of a horse-specific and effective balance pad for horse training.
After a long development period and numerous considerations about material, size, degree of hardness and much more, we would now like to introduce you to the Nørsholm pads - perfectly tailored to the needs of your horse.
I use the pads on my customer horses. Also suitable for horses that have difficulty relaxing or, for example, horses that struggle with arthrosis in their limbs. These horses in particular are often skeptical and unsettled at the beginning and then realize that they can let themselves go. Customers who have their own pads from other brands and then start using Nørsholm's see the high quality of their pads. Thank you for your support of my work.
I use the pads very often on my clients' horses and also on my own horse. I see a lot of benefits and physical improvements, especially with older horses. By regularly practicing with the balance pads, you can train even the smallest muscles and the affected ligaments and tendons in a gentle way. They gain a secure gait, their balance is improved again and they can coordinate their legs better. It's just a great addition.
After my pirate's eye surgery I used these balance pads. They allowed him becoming able to train his new body feeling really well. With my oldie I like to use them after ground work for additional relaxation and that works great too.
I was able to see and notice a clear relaxation in many horses when using the pads. Muscle tension was reduced to a healthy level and overall the repeated use had a very positive effect on the horses' overall condition. A great additional addition to training.
The pads were particularly supportive for our two young horses! Especially at the beginning you noticed that just two minutes really stimulate their thinking and require energy! Nowadays they are simply part of everyday stable life and I can only recommend them to everyone!
Manu just loves the pads and they are so good for him ❤️ I've been sitting here for 20 minutes and he hasn't moved an inch and is just totally relaxed. If I have the time, I just let him decide when he wants to end the session. Now he's just starting to yawn and chew and it's so great to see...
