Back on Track Therapeutic Knee Boots
Easy to use
Like all Back on Track products, these boots are not cheap, and I can't really say if it accelerated the healing process, but it sure beat attempting to wrap that knee (not even the vet's bandaging would stay put). This item, along with the Back on Track "Quick Wrap" allowed me to keep the knee clean and the leg (and knee boot) supported. I do beleive that these products work, as I use them on myself too and can feel the effects.

Best Invention for horses
Really loved these boots. I've only used them 3 times, and only had them a couple of days. I LOVE them. I tried them on my sore elbows first. You can't deny they are working, and if you try- you haven't left them on long enough. Give them a chance!! My horse had almost no reaction the first time, but the second time had a ton of release. He was licking and chewing and yawning and pawing. He showed me they were working for him. I bought them for some sudden fluid he had in his knee. They are worth the price, the magnetic stuff is soo much more expensive.
I bought from smartpak because of their AWESOME free shipping and great staff, and they have lived up to and went beyond my expectations again- they replaced my boots, no questions asked! I do LOVE these boots, no doubt, but the top velcro strap came loose and just hung by a thread on the right boot within just 2 wears, not sure how- but again, smartpak being as awesome as there, are replacing it no issue at all. I will definitely be buying hock boots, a blanket, a brace for my older aunt, and some stuff for myself. :)
OH by the way, my horse is 5 years old, and has had multiple issues, this is definitely what he needed to complete his final step to rehabilitation. I've not been able to see the effects YET in the saddle, but have felt his legs and seen him feeling a bit better in the pasture, I'd say that's pretty good for just a couple hours of wear.

My horse had a really weird knee injury where his knee fills up with fluid every once and awhile. Not sure exactly what he did or how he does it. The vet believes it's because he sleeps on his pasterns and therefore the fluid builds up to his knees. He's never lame or impacted from this it just looks like a balloon. The back on track knee boots have totally cured him from this. By wearing these boots, they reduce swelling completely. I've also noticed improvement during our rides and when jumping. Just be slow to introduce him/her to the boots, at least for my boy, he filled within 15-20 minutes of wearing them the first few days. I totally swear by the back on track products!!
