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'!).

Why We Love This

The Back on Track Therapeutic Mesh Sheet can benefit all horses- from pleasure, to race horses, to Olympic horses in every discipline.  This sheet is made from a breathable mesh material with state-of-the-art fabric containing 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 and joints. For best results, leave on overnight; but may also be used to help warm up muscles prior to exercise. In a short time you will see and feel the results in the way your horse moves and acts!

Colors: Black

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 Sheet - Black is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 108.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice sheet I will start off by saying I do not believe in the magical magnetic properties that BOT promotes. I have seen no difference using any of their products. That being said, I do think the construction of the products is very good and I like their versatility. For example, I can use this sheet as a light in the stall, for trailer rides or as a cooler. Also, just FYI the sheet runs small: my pony usually wears a 69 but fits into the 72 perfectly.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent fit and easy to put on and off. My gelding is 17 years old and I could feel a difference in him the first time I rode after I had used the blanket for a couple hours. He was more supple and soft.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from I bought a back on track mesh sheet. My mare measures an 84. Ordered that size. Not sure if sheet I received was labeled correctly. It was huge on her! Called customer service. They were very helpful. Received a replacement. This one fits good. Overall a good experience and yes, I would and will order again!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best purchase ever I finally decided it was time to buy the back on track mesh sheet, Fagan was having some soreness in his back, hips, and stiffles. I have to hock wraps and I know what a differece they have made. After 24 hours of wearing the mesh sheet under his blanket. When I got on to ride Fagan was able to strech at the walk and the trot. It felt like he had be ridden already. He was much looser and happier in his work. Even my fairrer noticed a change and found it easier to tirm and shoe him. After a month of wearing the sheet. Fagan's muscles are looser he's not tight over his back and hips and stifles. Plus he isn't girthy anymore. He just a happier horse overall.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just bought this and I love it. I have used several different Back on Track products for myself and have had great results. I got the blanket to help my mare who is coming off of an injury. I have just started using the sheet and my horse has come out more loose to start each day. I can not say enough good things about Back on Track products.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Product At the encouragement of my horses vets I purchased a sheet to aid healing of a soft tissue injury. Along side rest he has recovered faster than expected and has been able to return to work. I have used other BoT products (wraps, boots, neck cover) for other horses and this piece was just the last to add to the collection. I find them helpful for combating soreness at shows and after hard workouts at home.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Therapeutic Blanket - Beware of Sizing I love any and all things Back on Track. I love the mesh sheet for hauling my horse during cooler months so that his back is warm before I get on to ride or to put on for short turnout on cool mornings prior to a ride. Nice quality with a decent weight to it. The only issue I really had with mine was the fit - my horse typically fits in a 72" blanket and the 72" BOT Mesh Sheet was nearly two sizes too small for him - I had it on the largest front buckle setting and even then it was nearly 4" too short. But other than sizing, Both my gelding and I love the therapeutic properties of this sheet!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Love the therapy, decent fit, ok buy It's an okay buy for the price. If it was under $200 I would say it's a steal. Not nearly as good as some of the other back on track products I've used. However, fits my WB beautifully, right size, freedom in shoulders. Wish it had leg straps although you can add them.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this Blanket! This blanket is the 2nd back on track blanket I have purchased(I had the fleece one previously) My mare LOVES these blankets, her range of motion is improved and she also doesn't Stock up in her hind legs at night. It also helps her with her heat cycles...Since using Back on track she can be ridden in her heats, where as before she was just a hot mess under saddle during heat.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Not Chilly anymore I purchased this sheet a few weeks ago. And he is much more comfortable, body temperature wise. The chiropractor came to work on the horse and said something has changed. My horse is quiet, content in his stall. He wakes up going to the ring but even then he seems to be more ride able. Hard to believe...call me crazy but I believe my horse is benefiting more than I had hoped for with this Back on Track Mesh Sheet.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Wonderful Results, Not Great Fit The Back on Track Mesh Sheet produced results in my horses - I can notice improved freedom of movement. The sheet causes shoulder rubs on three horses with very different shoulders when used for more than a few hours at a time. The fit around the neck and shoulders is very much like a Weatherbeeta blanket. The sheet seems to run small, for a given size, based on my experience with many other brands of blankets.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Well made and seems to work I did a review of the scientific literature available on Far Infrared Radiation (FIR) from bio-ceramic fabric, the technology used in Back on Track products. The clinical effects looked significant enough to me that I purchased a sheet and hock wraps for my middle aged show hunter. The sheet is well made. It fits well and my horse can wear it alone in his stall or underneath a turnout blanket when he's outside. He seems to have an easier time warming up during riding after standing in a stall for a prolonged period due to winter weather. The sheet also gets him quite warm. When I layer it with a turnout, I have had to under-blanket him more than usual so he doesn't sweat. I was skeptical when purchasing this sheet and thought it might be overpriced, but I am satisfied with it and would purchase more Back on Track products. My horse seems to enjoy its effects.
    Date published: 2015-12-29
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Extremely nice sheet! Very impressed with how nice this sheet is. I didn't realize that it had such a nice, soft liner underneath. Well made, nice rings, straps, shoulder area feels thick enough to hold up and looks real classy with the gold Back on Track embroidery on the left shoulder. Fits real good too- snug enough to prevent shifting, but not bulky. Time will tell it's effectiveness, as I haven't had it long enough to comment and the weather here has been rather warm. Looking forward to finding out! Would definitely recommend!!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Loved this so much I bought another! I originally bought this in a desperate attempt at avoiding surgery for my mare with kissing spines. Full disclosure, I still wound up getting the surgery. But, this blanket did noticeably improve her discomfort. It was not quite as effective as steroid injections (pretty significant), around the same amount of effective as chiropractic adjustments ("Something definitely feels different"), and more effective than massage, acupuncture, shockwave, Tildren, saddle fitting, various and thoroughly discussed/researched/reviewed diet/physical therapy/turnout programs, injections between the spinal processes, and absolute rest. After three years of what I can assure you was quite painstaking research, I know that this blanket makes a difference at least somewhat in the muscle soreness that can result from this condition. My horse went from a clear reaction to a light pressure to at least "only" flinching. Like I said, I still eventually went with the surgery because it really is a much easier option to start with than go through the expense of all of the stuff that will be recommended leading up to it, but I know that I saved at least double the cost of the blanket with the amount of time it extended between vet appointments, so I am more pleased with this purchase than most other things I've tried. If you're worried about general "muscle soreness", this works, haha. After a year and a half of watching it work over and over again for my mare, I tried it on my gelding. He's 25, and while he's always been fairly well maintained his whole life, he's still 25 and has at some points been very active, so he does have his days where a little walk around the property is all we do, and he packs little lesson kids around once or twice a week. I left this blanket on him for two hours the first day, four the next, and by then definitely noticed a difference in his warmup time. His shoulders came up to me so easily, and his back was so loose, he felt like he was 10! I've been dragging people out to the barn with me while hand walking my mare after surgery, and even when someone is leading him, I can notice a difference from day to day now when he doesn't wear it overnight. While not as drastic of a case, I'm still happy with this investment for my sweet old man. It makes him comfortable, and he does look *very* handsome in it. The quality is excellent, and they fit beautifully on a narrow TB and a chunky appendix. I always use it with the neck cover, cause obviously, you might as well go for the whole shebang, haha! And... I've actually gotten distracted while looking to see if they have pony sizes. I have a young resale project, and I like what it's done for my other two so much that I would really like to be able to send her on with one, and know that she's at least that comfortable in her new day-to-day life. We put so much into our horses already, and if you're already looking in this price range for a stable blanket of some sort, you might as well let your money go the extra mile and make your horse as comfortable as possible. Yes, I recommend this!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Making a Difference I had one for my cold backed OTTB and it made a difference, so I bought a second one for my 18 year old ISH who has been stiff since I bought him 7 years ago. I believe I feel a difference now that he is wearing it 24/7 for about three weeks, (I added the time slowly). He feels better in his warm up and it seems to take less time to warm him up to do good work, despite that fact that I live in the northeast and the weather has been ridiculously cold!
