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 Buying only BOT pads from now I really love this pad. I used to use cheaper pads (I liked colorful one) and was curious a lot time to try BOT pad because many people rave about BOT pads. I bought this pad on sale ($68 shipped) and I could really see difference riding in it with my mare - I couldn't believe. The pad looks fancy, washes well and looks great. Cannot beat it. I also like the fit - some pads I had purchased were smaller under the saddle and I ike that this pad is little bigger than the cheaper pads.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works great, my horse loves it. I'm so glad I bought this saddle pad. It exceeds all my expectations.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My horse goes amazing in this! I bought this for my young mare, who lives outside 24/7 in a colder winter climate. Although she has never exhibited classic cold-backed symptoms, she does tend to get very grumpy about working in the winter and never felt like she was really working well until I was almost done riding. This saddle pad has made a HUGE difference in her demeanor. I put it on by itself while I'm grooming her before riding, and she seems much more relaxed when I first get on. When riding her in this pad, she stretches further, swings through her back, and doesn't brace against the aids like she did without it. She seems generally more relaxed and much happier to work in cold weather while using this pad. I will note that it makes her more sweaty as the weather has warmed up to more reasonable temperatures, so this is not something I would use year round. It seems to affect her more on days where it's warmer than 60 degrees. But for 20-40 degree winter weather, this is a phenomenal pad! As for the pad itself - it's a very well made, sturdy, thick pad. The contour top is awesome and I won't buy pads without that feature. I got the black pad monogrammed in Tan and it looks very classy. It stays very clean and keeps its shape well. It's pricey, but I am pleased with the result because it's a gorgeous pad that has made a huge difference in the winter work ethic of my horse! In fact, she seems to enjoy this pad so much, I will likely shell out for the BoT mesh sheet for shows this summer.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Really great pad!! Got this for my horse a few weeks ago. He is very sensitive overall so I thought he might just really enjoy the warmth of this pad. He warms up great in it, just like I read in the other reviews. Not only that, but I'm super pleased with the quality, weight, and fit of the pad.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works ! Using this helps warm my mare up faster. I will probably buy another if this one holds up.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I will never use any other saddle pad. I moved to a new barn about 6 months after my horse's ligament injury and we were just starting to trot again. My horse had been having pretty chronic back soreness throughout the year and nothing seemed to fix it. Flash forward to now - thanks to this pad, bringing him back into work has been as easy as mounting up. No back soreness to speak of. The vet is super happy with how he's been coming along and I'm looking into buying the Contender II pad for my other saddle. This pad is fantastic and I'll never ride in anything else again!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Another great Back of Track product I am a big fan of Back on Track and have several products for my horses, including (now) this all-purpose and one dressage back on track pads. They really do help to increase circulation, relaxing the back while riding. What I also like, is that we haven't seen any adverse reactions (too much stimulation) with either of my horses while jumping or dressage work. They are just expensive...
Date published: 2016-02-04
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for horses that take a while to loosen up I bought this pad for my hunter who takes a while to really start moving freely from behind. His back has much more fluid movement as soon as we start working. Would definitely recommend for any horse that tends to start out stiff through the back.
Date published: 2016-01-28
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Well designed pad I have a white Back on Track dressage pad and just bought a black one. They fit well, are sized appropriately, are thick but not bulky. My horse goes well in this pad in the cooler weather.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Back on Track Saddle Pad I made this purchase for my granddaughter at her request.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Loving this pad Bought this pad originally for my horse with kissing spine who used to warm so slow and would start so stiff and it helped him a ton and now use it on everything! My only problem is the drop on my 16.5 saddle with shorter flaps it hangs awkwardy low and if I don`t put it on right it ends up the way of my leg
Date published: 2015-11-26
Rated 5 out of 5 by from My horse loves this pad! After using this pad for only a few days it became evident that my horse loved this pad and that it helped the fit of his saddle. He has been hesitant to canter after starting back in training for almost 60 days. Now he is offering the canter without hesitancy. It would appear he is just way more comfortable. So glad I ordered this pad.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Back on track pad Just bought my second pad Two week ago had my other for 3 year and still use on another horse love them keeps my horse so he get soar and warm up better thanks smart pak

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice Pad I love back on track products and this dressage pad is exactly what i wanted. Looks great and my horse seems more comfortable when we use it.
Date published: 2015-10-21
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Definitely worth it! My horse is historically cold-backed so I started using the BOT products earlier this year. I was using the back cover and finally decided to spring for the saddle pad. I'm SO glad I did; my horse warms up faster and his back is definitely freer when I use it! I guess I will be retiring all my saddle pads and stocking up on these. I also use a Thinline half pad, so I may have to try their combo pad, too. It is big enough to fit well under my 17.5" event saddle with forward flaps, which really surprised me! It might be really big on a more average size saddle with straighter flaps.
Date published: 2015-10-12
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Really nice quality but could be longer This saddle pad is constructed beautifully and the monogramming I got on my BOT saddle pad looks really good. I do suggest for the monogramming don't use the royal blue on black it is just a little too dark to see the monogramming easily. My only complaint is the saddle pad could be a little longer. I have a 18.5" close contact saddle just for over fence work and my saddle barely fits on the pad that is my only complaint. I only buy BOT saddle pads for my horse who was recently diagnosed with kissing spine so keeping his back happy is at the fore front of my mind.
Date published: 2015-09-30
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for my mare! This pad was reasonably priced, came in the mail quickly and was used the next day. My mare has mild wobblers' syndrome, and I'm always looking for products which will help her back -- this is a great pad to help her.
Date published: 2015-08-10
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great saddle pad! I bought the Back on Track white dressage pad because other riders at the barn recommended it to me. My horse is training five days per week and competing at a high level. I wanted to make sure that he was comfortable over his back. We do regular saddle fittings and having a saddle pad with therapeutic benefits seemed like a great idea. We started using the pad for training and really liked it. I have purchased several now and use them for showing too! This is a really nice pad of high quality. I will purchase it again.
Date published: 2015-06-23
Rated 4 out of 5 by from It works! This pad is the only one I use on my horse. I can't tell you that I've seen a difference in her but that is also because I got it for free when I bought my back on track sheet and I do notice a difference in my horse when I use it. My mom also experiences a lot of hip pain and butt pain when she drives (she has a 2 hour commute to work) so I bought her this to sit on and she said she's never been more comfortable.
Date published: 2015-06-11
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quality Pad Love these BOT pads for my horse. This is my second one and will be my show pad this summer. They are thick and very well made. Hold up wash after wash. My one complaint is that my grey horses hairs become embedded in the fleece underside and it is difficult to clean out of my black pad. Therefore I bought the white one instead.
Date published: 2015-06-03
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Saddle Pad I purchased this a month ago and have used it on my horse that has a spinal injury. It had supported his back very well.
Date published: 2015-05-30
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Nice pad; can't say it has any therapeutic value I've been using this pad for 6+ months now on my second level and PSG horses. While it is a very well made, substantial pad, I really can't see that it has any special therapeutic properties. And although it has been washed dozens of times and is holding up very well - I am not sure it is worth the money just for a very nice pad.
Date published: 2015-05-15
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Haven't Had it Long I haven't had this pad very long, only a few weeks, so I can't give it five stars yet. I am not sure if it is helping my horse or not. My 11 year old Haffy had a back/hip injury as a 6yo and hasnt been worked consistently in years. Now that I own him and ride 3-4 times a week he is certainly sore and achy, but like any athlete it takes conditioning. I think overall this pad will help with time.
Date published: 2015-05-05
Rated 5 out of 5 by from World's Best Saddle Pad! Absolutely in love with the Back on Track saddle pad! This pad isn't winpy - in fact, it's quite hefty and maintains its shape beautifully. My gelding has a tight back and after the first ride in this pad, he had a round back and was overtracking with his hind end. I hope to start replacing most of my old pads with BoT products in the near future.
Date published: 2015-05-02
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great looking Dressage pad. The Back on Track Dressage saddle pad is fantastic. It fits my horse perfectly, and stays up off the withers. Great looking too.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice pad! This pad has a nice cut, nice weight - still can wash in my washing machine but not wimpy, and looks great! I love the Back on Track products.
Date published: 2015-02-17
Rated 5 out of 5 by from well made and comfortable I have not used this saddle pad for very long so I'm not sure of long-term benefits but my horse seemed to like it as soon as I put it on him.
Date published: 2015-02-06
Rated 4 out of 5 by from great saddle pad This is my second BOT pad, love the material....not too thin not bulky thick. I got the all purpose it seems slightly larger than the one I got 3 yr ago
Date published: 2015-02-05
Rated 5 out of 5 by from LOVE IT! I ordered this because my horse had tightness in her back and within two rides she felt so much different! She warmed up faster and rounded up nicer. Awesome pad.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Nice look It did not make a diffetence, my horse did not move better over his back.
