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 Saddle Pad is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 228.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from saddle pad looks nice fits a bit snug but overall working for us
Date published: 2018-05-25
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome saddle pad! Definitely felt a difference the first time I rode in this pad. On an older horse especially it made all of the difference warming her back up. The embroidery was lovely too. Well worth the price!
Date published: 2018-04-26
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great fit! After using other saddle pads, I am returning to Back on Track because I loved using one before with my cold backed kissing spine horse. It now comes in navy, which is easier to clean than the white we had before. My horse is coming back to work after an injury and he seems happy with this pad as we start to work on building a topline.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this pad I had been using the western liner on my gelding and purchased this pad when I switched back to english. The pad is well made and I expect it to last me quite a while. My gelding has pssm type 2 and is often a bit tight in the back in the colder months. This pad really helps him to loosen up and stay comfortable on our rides. The AP pad fit my 17" close contact saddle very well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Always trusted I have always trusted Back on Track products for my horses and this is no disappointment. Well made and is perfect for those cooler days to help warm up my mare’s back and keep it warm.
Date published: 2018-01-05
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent pad Just got this, and used it once. It is very nicely made and looks good also. I will see how it works on my other horse who has back issues and put in an updated review after a few uses.
Date published: 2017-10-26
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Worth the money Excellent quality pad. I have 5 of these, 2 dressage and 3 western. They hold up very well and keep the horses' backs loose and comfortable. I use bot products on my animals as well as myself and find the benefits to be rewarding.
Date published: 2017-07-22
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect! I have two of these pads already, one in black and one in white and I've loved them both. Just got the brown one and it is beautiful on my liver chestnut and the free embroidery I got on it looks exactly how I wanted it to! One thing I noticed about the brown pad is that the part that touches the horse is a nice and smooth material rather than the fuzzy type of material of the other BOT pads I have. Not sure if this is exclusive to the brown pad or not, but I LOVE it, as it means that the hair doesn't get velcroed to the pad like it does with other BOT pads. I can just brush the hair right off after each ride, and I imagine it will wash much better than the other BOT pads too. Excellent improvement to an already great product!
Date published: 2017-04-27
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Must have! I bought this for showing in the jumpers and I had it embroidered which looks so good. I don't recommend it for the warmer months or hot days because it is on the thicker side and with it being black it absorbs the heat too.
Date published: 2017-03-16
Rated 5 out of 5 by from best. pad. ever I've been using this pad for about 4 months on my chronically back sore ottb mare. She's never had a good back and although she sees the chiropractor and massage therapist regularly, she still moved a little stiff in her back. even had the saddle fitter out to make sure everything fit properly. ever since we started using this pad regularly, her back has been significantly less sore and her movement is looser and more free. she doesn't protest using her back and is just all around more comfortable and performs better. the pad is also very durable and has held up wonderfully. i would buy a million of these. definitely worth every penny.
Date published: 2017-01-14
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Does its job Bought this for my appaloosa who's back was sore after losing weight. It's a little bigger than his regular all purpose pad but we put it under so it's great. Keeps his muscles loose and adds extra padding to his regular pad.
Date published: 2016-11-02
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great saddle pad for the winter! I've used this for over a year with the OTTB I shareboard and she absolutely loves it in the winter time. She doesn't have the best back so it definitely helps with inflammation and getting things circulating nicely! One of my favorite brands too!
Date published: 2016-11-01
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great pad The warmth dispersal aspect is excellent. I also like the size and shape. And the custom embroidery is a nice touch.
Date published: 2016-09-23
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this product! I bought the white pad and it washes very well. My horse had a back injury as a baby and this product seems to help him be a little more comfortable as I ride him! I'm getting the black one next!
Date published: 2016-08-31
Rated 5 out of 5 by from I love the Back On Track dressage pads! It warms up our horses back and has great wither relief. It also washes and cleans up really well.
Date published: 2016-08-08
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works wonders for my back sore horse I noticed a huge difference even on my first ride with this pad. My horse seemed more open in his range of motion and more responsive to me. Seemed to help his pain immediately!
Date published: 2016-08-04
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Horse with kissing spine recovery I have only used about four times, but I have heard great things about his product! My horse had kissing spine surgery so I needed some extra help:)
Date published: 2016-07-25
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this!! I am never going back to normal saddle pads. Back in track has helped my horse so much and has made a super bug difference in his performance!
Date published: 2016-06-07
Rated 5 out of 5 by from All Purpose English Pad I wanted an extra pad to practice English in. This pad seemed like a great choice and when I could personalize for free I was sold!! Seems like my horse performs well with it. The pad is larger than I expected for all purpose.
Date published: 2016-05-27
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great quality and I love the way it helps his back This pad has definitely helped my horse's back relax and stay loose. I tried it for a week straight then switched to my old one for a couple of rides, I can feel a difference!
Date published: 2016-05-04
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Impossible to clean I bought the pad 6 weeks ago and I am very happy with the fit and feel of the pad, But the surface next to the is numbly and impossible to clean. It holds onto hair like a magnet. It just can't be removed.
Date published: 2016-04-26
Rated 5 out of 5 by from helps reduce warm up time I have an OTTB that takes a long time to warm up (generally about half an hour before we get really nice work out of him) I've found he warms up much faster and just over all seems happier with the back on track pad. Only wish there was an easier way to get the hair off of it during shedding season!!!
Date published: 2016-04-23
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this saddle pad!! I bought this pad about a month ago an absolutely love it! It's so thick and durable and has helped my horse move so much better. It defiantly works!!!
Date published: 2016-04-17
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love the pad I've used this on two different mares and it seems to help them loosen and warm up better. I did notice that it seemed to shed when I brushed it clean so I won't do that again. I have not washed it. I have the black dressage pad. I would love to have it in other colors
Date published: 2016-04-11
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Well made My horses seem to really like these pads and warm up faster
Date published: 2016-04-09
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful, functional, long-lasting This is the second BOT pad I've purchased and it's the only pad I use now! Generous size to fit all half pads/saddle combinations, thick but not too thick padding and great for cold backed horses like my OTTB.
Date published: 2016-04-05
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Saddle Pad! I bought this to use on my OTTB because his back gets tight during warm up. He loves it! It takes less time to warm up his back and he is less fussy!
Date published: 2016-04-01
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good pad I have 2 pads and they have lasted years.. I feel they keep my horses back more comfortable!
Date published: 2016-03-26
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it! Bought this for my TB after we had saddle fit issues...got my saddle sorted and fitted correctly and have been using only this pad since...my horse is going great and we love this pad.
Date published: 2016-03-23
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this saddle pad Great saddle pad any horse. Have one for each of my horses that I've been using in the colder months. Really helps warm up their back before a ride. They definitely run a little large but I prefer that personally.
