We're bringing you this product at the lowest price allowed by the manufacturer so you won't find it cheaper anywhere else. This also means we can't apply any further discounts or promotions.

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'!).

Instructions

Instructions for Use:
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.

Washing:

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 Mesh Neck Cover is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 10.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from This is really helping my horse I have a sixteen year old draft cross that has flexibility and stiffness issues in his neck and shoulders. I had not used back on track products before but had only heard great things. It fits great and covers all off his trouble areas. I can pull it up right behind his ears and tuck it into his halter. I started using the neck wrap for 30 minutes before riding. Like other reviewers, after about 3-4 uses I saw an improvement. He is bending better and seems more comfortable in general. He has a habit of turning back to look at me and bumping my foot with his nose. He has always done this by turning to the left. For the first time EVER a couple of days ago, he turned to the right and did it, which astonished me. The only drawback to this product as other reviews mentioned is that it is intended to use with the blanket, so it is difficult to keep in place if you want to turn your horse out in it. It will slide down his neck. I cut the heavy snaps off and tried using a big (human) hair clip to clip the bottom to his mane to keep it on for a short period of turn out and that seems to work ok.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Back on Track Fan I had the BOT sheet for the past year and really see a difference in my horses comfort level and ease of movement. I added the neck cover a month ago. I noticed an improvement in my horses suppleness through his neck and poll after using the neck cover attached to the sheet. He loves wearing it and it makes warm up times so much easier when he has had it on for an hour before we tack up to ride. Love BOT!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Neck cover great idea, good concept! I have boughten two of these BOC hoods now. Like the sheets, they run a little large. My horses are an 80", 78" BOT fits them perfect. The hood size 78 fit perfect as well. The only design issue I have is they have a snap at the top of the hood, I'm assuming the idea is to snap it to the halter???? I don't know if anyone who keeps haters on 24/7. I ended out cutting the snap off. Just the weight of the snap kept pulling the hood over to one side. Otherwise the hood stays perfectly on.
