As riders and online shoppers, we know it can be tough to buy a new bridle or pair of boots without trying them on. That's why we moved the fitting room to your living room (or barn)! From breeches to blankets, if you or your horse can try it on, you can return it, free! Just use the pre-paid return label included in your order within 60 days from the purchase date. And of course, please make sure the item is in like-new condition with original packaging (we said 'fitting room', not 'war room'!).

Give your cold-backed horse (or any horse, for that matter) the edge with Back on Track's western pad.

Top riders worldwide have found that using this thin pad under their regular pad greatly improves their horse's performance. Made of polypropylene combined with Back on Track's state-of-the-art Weltex fabric, which is infused with ceramic powder to reflect your horse’s natural body warmth and creates a soothing infrared thermal heat. Speeds up warm-up time and provides relief for tired muscles by increasing blood flow. Great for training or competing.

Measures 31" long x 30" wide. Available in Black

    Back on Track Western Pad is rated 4.75 out of 5 by 16.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this pad! I purchased this pad for my husbands rope horse that has a sensitive back. I love how thin and SOFT it is. The shape of the pad is just perfect, I love that it has a shaped spine so as not to add extra wither pressure. An added benefit is its a great pad liner and is super easy to wash. It certainly helps him not get stiff and back sore the day after the ropings. It keeps him loose and warm. I was usure at first about adding extra "heat" as I live in already warm climate but as other reviewers have said it really does have a deep soothing warmth, not the "sweat pouring down the sides" kind of heat. Now I just need to get another one for MY horse!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Pad I purchased this pad for my 24yr old who doesn't really have any back issues but in the winter months needs just a bit extra time to warm up. This pad was just enough to warm his back up while I groomed and tacked up so when I got on he was ready to go! As just a side note be warned the underside of this pad is like felt and if your horse is going through shedding season this pad is a hair magnet.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Does what it says! We barrel race and I have friends who use and love Back on Track products. I have used magnets in the past but was willing to try this type of therapy saddle pad as a liner under my regular pad. It is thin enough and gives big benefits. The pad does everything is says it does. I am very very happy I purchased this back on track pad.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very pleased with this pad on my TN Walker It sets really well under my regular pad and endurance saddle. I've noticed a big difference within the first few rides and so has Ranger. He is 16.1hh and about 1300lbs. He will throw a fit if it's not on him for riding. I just recently took him to Land Between the Lakes in KY and this pad was very durable in the woods just as it is in the arena. I just started using this pad on my Rocky Mtn horse whom is always spooky and nervous and put it on my Spotted Saddle Horse which we are just now starting under saddle. It fit all 3 horses fine.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from It really makes a difference I was very skeptical of this pad when I first purchased it. From the moment that I pulled it out of the packaging though it has not stopped amazing me. It is thin like a normal quilted english pad and fits perfectly beneath my western pad. I put it on my horse the moment that I am done grooming his back and let it sit on him while I finish grooming the rest of him. There is a obvious difference in heat from his shoulder to under the pad. It is mid summer where we are and I was really worried that he would be sweaty before we even began riding but he was fine. The heat beneath the pad was very soothing. I have really noticed a difference after the ride and the next day. He no longer is stiff when we start riding and stays loose after the ride. I find that there is no swelling around an old injury that would normally swell the next day.I have used this pad beneath my english saddle and it reaches far enough back that it provides soothing heat everywhere that I want. I have felt the difference in his stride and his ability to bend. His muscles are definitely not as tense as they were.I have washed it now and it did tend to hold on to the hair but it came out looking very nice. The back did not fade. It dried in the same shape that it was in when I put it in the washer. So as far as quality is concerned the fabric seems very durable and held up to washing with a very mild detergent. I followed the directions that were sent with the pad, just be sure never to dry it. I plan on purchasing several of the other back on track products for the future.This pad was well worth it.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Back on Track Western Pad The countour shape fits the horse's back nicely.After 30+ minutes of training the horse had broke a sweat but was dry where the back on track pad was. My horse never showed signs of soreness afterwards and seemed more content.Easy to clean.
