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'!).

Why We Love This

The Back on Track Therapeutic Hock Wraps use state-of-the-art fabric which contains polyester thread embedded with a fine ceramic powder.

Designed to reflect the horse's own body-warmth, it creates a soothing far infrared thermal heat, which can help alleviate pain associated with inflamed muscles, ligaments, tendons and joints. The Back on Track therapy works with your horses own body heat. Used for both injury prevention as well as injury recovery.

Material is a cotton/polyester blend infused with Back on Track's revolutionary ceramic infused fiber. Three VELCRO® brand straps. Pair.



Small (Cob), Medium (Horse) or Large (O/S)
What Customers Say:


Instructions for Use:
Back on Track Hock Boots should be gradually introduced by using them for 2-4 hours for the first 3-5 days. After that you may use them overnight 2-3 weeks. Give the horse a break from use for 4-7 days, then use again for 2-3 weeks without the slow introduction period. Use your own judgment and see how the horse responds.  Back on Track recommends using a standing wrap to support the Hock Boots.

If you do any injections to the hocks, wait 4 days to use the Hock Boots after injections.     

Please read carefully, both the usage and washing instructions, before using the product.

All Back on Track products should be implemented gradually. To start with, use the product for a maximum of four hours a day for the first 2-3 days. The body then has the opportunity to familiarize itself with the fabric’s effects.

The reason we recommend starting with a maximum of 4 hours use is that some people experience pain in the beginning. In horses and dogs, it manifests itself as a swelling. This is due to the increased blood circulation, which is actually a good indication that the ceramic fabric is taking effect. This initial pain or swelling can occur anywhere from a few to several hours of use. You should then cease using the product any more that day, and instead introducing it carefully and more gradually over the following days.

After the introductory period you should up the usage to a minimum of 8 hours per day, preferably more. After only an hour or so is often perceived a positive effect on tight muscles and stiff joints. More persistent problems may require several days, usually between 10-20, before the desired result is achieved.

After the introductory period of 2-3 days it is important to continue to use the product intensively at least 10, preferably 20 days, before assessing its impact. Since this ceramic fabric reflects more of the body’s heat radiation as you move, the effect is greatest if you wear the product when active. Back on Track also works when resting, even when you sleep.

Continue to use the product according to the routine you develop, or use it for two weeks and then take a break in the third week, this in order to avoid dependency. The sensitivity of this dependency varies from individual to individual. For maximum effect, the ceramic fabric should be in direct contact with the skin (if necessary, a thin cotton cloth inserted between).

Note: Caution is advised during simultaneous use with liniment or similar, since the effect is amplified. Use the product only as directed and consult a doctor if symptoms persist. Do not use during pregnancy.

Specific instructions for use on horses and dogs:

Keep in mind that the effect of Back and Track increases with movement when the body heat increases, so in addition to using pads and blankets in the stables, the horse can also be allowed to move around with the Back on Track products. Especially suitable in this context is Riding Boots, Leg Wraps, Saddle Pads, Exercise Sheets and Blanket/Sheets.

For long term problems, the horse may need to use Back on Track for an extended period. Use the product for two to three weeks and have a break one week, to see if the symptoms persist.

As a preventive measure, Back on Track can be used with regular breaks. Use Back on Track 1 day before and 2 days after exercise and then stop until the next workout. For warm-up, use 1-2 hours before and 2-4 hours after exercise.

For dogs, one often uses the standard Dog Blanket, which is rain repellent and breaths. However, it should be noted that for long-running problems, Back on Track should be used for several weeks, at least 8 hours per day, with regular breaks in order to achieve the desired results. This means that the dog can use the blanket day and night, indoor as well as outdoor, 24/7. If being used at night, it is probably more comfortable for the dog to wear the Mesh Blanket, which is more adaptable. Alternatively, the dog may be provided with a mattress with "memory foam" or a cover of Back on Track to the sleeping basket. The foam part molds to the body shape and relieves a sore back.


Back on Track products can be machine washed up to 86°F or 30°C. Use normal detergents that do not contain bleach or fabric softeners. Air dry only, do NOT tumble dry.

Note: Do not use bleach or fabric softener, or tumble dry. The product should be ironed at a maximum temperature of 122 F The ceramic powder is fused in the fibres of polyester/polypropylene and does not separate when washed. The textile loses efficiency with time and extended use.

The textile is produced in China and consists of 100% polypropylene (PP) with ceramic powder or 50% polyester with ceramic powder and 50% cotton.

    Back on Track Hock Wraps is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 121.
    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good product, poor durability My mare has been wearing her BoT hock boots for two weeks now in her stall overnight. Granted, she does lie down every night (on a generous amount of sawdust bedding on rubber mats) but the boots are fraying around the edges and the velcro is full of bedding. I do think BoT products are helpful, but it is disappointing that these boots are not more durable.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing! I just received these a few days ago and can already see a difference in my mare! I've been trying to manage the arthritis in her hocks for awhile now and nothing has seemed to work until now! I definitely recommend these! Thanks for an awesome product!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Fabulous I bought this for my mare with a bad hock injury , to help transition her out of full wraps. These worked exactly as I had hoped and helped with range of motion. I am excited to use them in the future on my pony who has bad hocks. I love the back on track line
    Date published: 2017-06-22
    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Seem to work well I have used these before and they seem to work well. My only issue is that they do tend to cause a rub above back of hock if left on as recommended ( I cut a notch there which helps)
    Date published: 2017-05-21
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Product! I bought this for my 16yr old QH as he is starting to signs of arthritic changes in his hocks. This has made a huge difference in range of motion, warm up time, and stiffness. I am so grateful to find a product that will help ease his pain through the years.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Both my horse and I LOVE these! My horse comes out feeling better and more quickly works out of any stiffness -- if he's stiff at all! I use these pre and post ride to help him warm up quicker and cool down more efficiently.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love them! I bought these for my senior mare who had struggled this winter with her arthritis in the cold. After wearing them she goes out to the ring much more comfortable and eager to work! I love them!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Another great Back on Track product! I have been using the BOT hock wraps for 4 weeks now. I have noticed real improvement in how my horse warms up much faster and feels so much freer in his movement when I have put them on half an hour before riding. I put them on before we ride for half an hour or so and again afterwards for another 20 minutes to half hour. I haven't left them on for more than this as they can give a small rub mark on his upper hock even though they fit perfectly. I use the BOT quick wraps with them before each ride. Great product!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Too soon to tell These boots fit great and I'm hoping they will work for my OTTB and his tired hocks....unfortunately he's not too happy wearing them so they haven't been used long enough to see any results.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good fit for small horses The boots are very adjustable and they still in place. I use them before and after riding.
    Date published: 2016-06-07
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fits well over a difficult area I purchased this hock wrap a month ago at our vet's advice following my mare's bout with a septic hock. It is supposed to create heat which promotes healing. Along with daily hand walking, the hock swelling is down. This is a well designed product and does not slip off the hock at night, which is a really area to keep things on properly. The only drawback is you have to purchase a set when you only need one.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing! These came in right when it said it would and there were no problems with anything! This item works AMAZING! My horse has been sore in his hocks a few times after we would get done exercising and practicing, so I got these and used them for 1 hour the first day after a ride and I used them for about a week for about 2 hours after the first day and my horse was so much better and felt great! They honestly helped him just the first day they're was no soreness in the hocks the morning after. I now put them on before he loads up in the trailer and he travels with them on because they help with stiffness and they work so great! I would also defiantly recommend using them if you stall your horses over night at home or a rodeo if they get stiff in the hocks they would help tremendously and prevent from getting stiff! Back on track products are wonderful!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for older horses! I have a older horse that is competing upper levels and these helped his movement so so much!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from They stay on! My 29 year old mare makes that brutal turn on her hockis to get up. This is the only "bandaging" that stay on to help heal that horrible gaping wound.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product I bought these boots for an OTTB with arthritis and he also required stall rest for a period. He was getting hock sores from lying down. These helped both the arthritis and the sores. I also feel the fit runs small. He's 17h and built like a warmblood, not tout typical TB. I bought the Large and they fit perfect.
    Date published: 2016-04-16
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Makes a HUGE difference! My gelding has arthritis in his hocks and the Back on Track Hock Wraps make a world of difference. He's looser, doesn't come out stiff and is overall much happier!
    Date published: 2016-04-06
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Not very durable These boots get great results, but aren't built as well as I'd expect. The straps are tearing and stretching and the boot itself attracts shavings. I was in between sizes( M/L) for my 16.3hh KWPN mare, and opted for the Large. after the first wear, they became too big for consistent wear (slides without back wraps on).
    Date published: 2016-04-01
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product I bought this product for an OTTB that I just adopted. He is 16 and I felt he needed a bit of hock support. I put these on while grooming and preparing for our ride. I feel he has been supported by this product. They are easy to put on and take off and stay in place well.
    Date published: 2016-03-22

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from These are fantastic I'm a BOT believer now - these things are amazing. They really keep my boy's hocks warm so he comes out of his stall looser when he's stuck inside. Makes me feel better when he's stuck inside for sure!
    Date published: 2016-02-02
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from High quality hock boots! These boots are very durable and easy to use. My horse who is very sensitive seemed very comfortable in them. Overall very nice quality for the price!
    Date published: 2016-01-19
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works as advertised I bought these for a horse who has a lot of joint stiffness following a bout of Lyme disease. I put them on half an hour before his ride while I'm grooming & tacking up. I definitely see a shortened warm-up time with looser, more powerful movement earlier on. with less "tough love" needed from me. They are well made, they fit & conform very well, and seem sturdy. They do run a little small. My horse measured for a medium but I had to exchange for a large.
    Date published: 2016-01-14
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Product! My QH gelding has arthritis in both hocks, one far worse than the other, and I notice an HUGE difference using these boots. Before the boots he would come out stiff and clearly uncomfortable now he seems much more comfortable and far less stiff! I am now working on adding the rest of the BOT line to my collection of equipment.
