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 3 out of 5 by from Jury is still out. I acquired a very cold-backed and cinchy mare. We take approximately 20 minutes to saddle and she still feels obligated to try and bite or to buck after she is saddled. I have used this pad 3x now and she has not bucked once saddled and moving which is a great improvement. It is thin and easily fits beneath her regular pad. I have some concern that during the hot and humid summer her back may overheat but time will tell on that - I usually use 100% wool blankets/pads.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this pad! Feel like I am giving back to my horse when I ride him in this pad. It helps warm up all his back muscles. For all he has done for me I deserve to do something for him. Money well spent.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Back on Track pad has my mare on track I purchased this pad for my 15 year old cutting mare that was usually stiff in the back, tense making transitions, and sometimes tender when she was in heat. Well, I now saddle her with my back on track pad under her usual gel impact pad, let her stand about 15 minutes, and then warm her up. Her warmup has gone from "gee, mare, are you 15 or 3?" to "that's a GOOD girl!" I highly recommend the Back on Track Western pad for anyone who's horse may be touchy to warm has made my nice mare even better!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Like the BOT products - hope the pad works My horse is rehabing from some back issues. I ordered this pad to see if it helps him warm up faster and stay more comfortable during his work. It is too soon to tell.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from my horse and i love this!!! I use this under my work/show pads its thin like an english saddle pad so its thin enough to put undear a western pad. It has really helped my cold back/girthy mare. she no longer dances/backs while being cinched and she no longer trys to trot off before i get my butt in the saddle. she still is not a huge fan of the girth but at least she stands still these days. i do a brush off of her back than put this pad on while i finish grooming and tacking up so that it can get an extra few min of warm up time before i get on. what i also love is by using it as a liner my work pads stay a heck of a lot cleaner and this liner is much much easier to wash than a western work pad. i just put it in the washer in cold water low spin and a gentle soap like woolite than air dry...comes out like new. i love love love back on track products and i LOVE smartpak for carrying them :)

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very helpful This pad has made a huge difference in my gelding. He's always cold backed and sore. Since I started using this he's like a different horse

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good Product I was really happy Back on Track made a saddle pad which was longer, front to back. Even though this says 'western' pad I use it under my close contact jumping saddle. I like the fact that it reaches back to horse's loin area, where she needs the warmth. I also have the BOT sheet for after riding which is fantastic. Pad could be a little thicker and does lack any girth stays (probably 'cause it's a western pad)
