Overview

Why We Love This

There are more ways than one to use the Back on Track Therapeutic Horse Back Pad's natural heat therapy! This therapeutic back pad uses Back on Track's state-of-the-art Welltex fabric, which contains polyester thread embedded with a fine ceramic powder. Designed to reflect the horse's own body-warmth, it creates a soothing infrared thermal heat, which can help alleviate pain associated with inflamed muscles, ligaments, tendons and joints. Used for both injury prevention as well as injury recovery. A hook-and-loop strip detaches and may be sewn into an existing blanket or may be used with a surcingle.

Imported.

Favorite Features:

  • State-of-the-art Welltex fabric reflects your horse's own natural body heat creating a soothing far infrared thermal warmth
  • Helps increase the blood circulation and helps your horse's back muscles recover, stay looser, and become less inflamed
  • Can be used for both injury prevention as well as injury recovery
  • Can also greatly benefit horses with cold or sore backs
  • Great for horses who are rehabbing or on the mend

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 Therapeutic Horse Back Pad is rated 3.8 out of 5 by 13.
Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not As Shown What I received is not what is shown in the image. I got a rectangular piece of fabric without any kind of shaping for the back. It is also way too short to clip inside a blanket as I had intended. Very disappointed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect for groundwork and lunging Love this pad. I use this for my horse with a tight back every time I put him in a surcingle or he Pessoa and it really seems to help him relax and be more through in his back. I think the length is perfect because it covers the entire back almost to the hip, unlike the saddle pads which are shorter and don’t help my horse with thoracolumbar kissing spines. The lumbar area is a place for soreness in a lot of horses so this pad is perfect!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Pointless- buy the sheet Frankly this thing seems pointless. It has straps to use under a saddle or surcingle, but isn’t that what the saddle pad is for? This thing isn’t shaped/contoured for the back and I don’t see much point in laying it over the horse for the 20 minutes I’m grooming. BOT products are intended for longer periods of use so this seems silly and has ended up as a dog bed.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not so much a product review but smartpak review I purchased this pad to use on my horse who has scar tissue from compression fractures in her hind quarters and lower back. Basically I don’t need it for her upper back, but that’s a plus. I was excited for this to have arrived until I realized it didn’t match the picture. Smartpak only sells the 39” length back which is not the product in the picture. If you are looking for the contoured 46” product from the picture you won’t get it. I don’t know why y’all are advertising the longer pad when you sell the short one. I should have checked the length on your measurements sure, but y’all shouldn’t have the long one in the picture description. Unfortunately I’ll have to return bc this blanket won’t hit the areas that I want it to.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for recovery! My mare pulled a muscle in her back by her SI area and my chiropractor recommended laser therapy and possibly injections due to the amount of tension in her back. I bought this and use it as a pad for both lunging and riding and she loves it!!! She dances around in cross ties until I but it on and then immediately stands calmly once it's on. She is much more willing to step under and use her "lower back" more. It's an amazing improvement! LOVE LOVE LOVE!!!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Would like straps with this but did find some Not only great for back but I used a strap and converted it to a bib on my horses front end, Chest , to use on a strained muscle. She loves it!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from You might as well buy the blanket I know, I know, it's a tough pill to swallow. But I've found that leaving the Back On Track products on longer, like overnight or for several hours, works much better than trying to strap this into a one specific blanket and match it to the weather, or leave it attached with a surcingle for a while, or trying to throw it on and off enough to make a difference. I only noticed a slight change when using it those ways. It's not contoured like in the picture, so it doesn't fit most horses very well. I just put it in my horses heavy blanket as an extra warm "treat" when it's really cold out, and got all of them the Back On Track mesh sheet and neck cover for when they're inside. They wear them overnight, and I get to see a definite improvement the next day :-)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing! i bought this a couple weeks ago and have been using it on my 6yo mare ever since. She loves it and just about falls asleep on the crosstie with it in. I let here stand with it on for about a half hour pre and post ride. She can go into some awful heats and it has really seemed to have helped any cramps or pain associated with that. While in heat she is now more willing to work and much less cranky - thank you SP and BOT - I would however love to see the 3x4 size offered through SP

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Did not match picture One problem was that the blanket was not contoured in it's shape like it was shown in picture. This keeps it from laying in good contact with the horse.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Worth every penny!! Sore horses? Stiff horses? Unhappy in the cold horses? Fix it all with this awesome, cozy, easy-to-use pad. The ample size is terrific (horse owners can even wrap up in it to alleviate aches and pains and fend of winter chills). Highly recommended!
