Why We Love This

Relieve and Heal Injured Muscles, Joints, and Tendons with Back on Track's Contoured Horse Knee Boots.

Back on Track Therapeutic Knee Boots are ideal for injury recovery or prevention in the tough to wrap knee area. Consisting of a neoprene exterior, Back on Track infused the interior of the boot with their state-of-the-art Welltex fabric, which contains ceramic powder. Heat therapy is a well-recognized method used to help relieve and heal injured muscles, joints, and tendons. When you use these boots it helps to use standing wraps to prevent them from sliding down. Pair.


Favorite Features

  • Contoured to the shape of the knee
  • Hook and loop closures
  • When combined with natural body heat, the ceramic creates a soothing thermal heat

SmartPak Returns

We put our products to the test in our barns and on our horses, so we're confident that you'll be thrilled with your purchase. However, we know that life in the barn can sometimes be unpredictable. That's why we've created a stress-free return policy. If you purchase an item and it doesn't meet your expectations, we want to know about it, take care of you and give you your money back.

Free Return Shipping on all Sized Items

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 request a return with a FREE SmartPak return label from your Order History within 60 days of 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'!).

The Fine Print

We love our products and we're happy to take them back - even custom items. We'll happily take back everything from engraved halters to personalized jackets - even embroidered blankets that have been worn (minus the manure, please). But there are a few things we have to restrict returns on (silly federal regulations).

Health regulations require that undergarments (including bras) need to be in new condition (tags and packages intact) in order to be returned. (Even if it wasn't required, do you really want to shop from a store that takes back used undergarments?!)

As riders, we know what a big investment a saddle is. That's why we're proud to offer the best Test Ride program in the business. You can keep our Test Ride saddles risk-free for five days, to really make sure you like the fit and the feel. We know that to truly try a saddle, you have to really ride in it. So go ahead and girth it up. Forget about wrapping your stirrup leathers. Try it with or without a saddle pad. Basically, treat it like you already bought it, so you can make sure you really want to. Because when you buy a saddle from us, we want to make sure you love it. Of course, we want our other customers to love their new saddles, too.
That's why we have a Test Ride option for each saddle we carry - so that all of the other saddles can stay in pristine condition, waiting for their new owners. For this reason, if you purchase a saddle outside the Test Ride program, it's still eligible for return, but must be free from any marks or damage.

So that's it. Seriously. Those are all of our "rules." Well, except the most important one - treating our customers the way we want to be treated. So if you have any questions or if there is anything we can do, please call us at 1-800-461-8898 or email We are always happy to help.

Instructions for Use:
Back on Track recommends using a standing wrap to support the Knee Boots.

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.


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 Knee Boots is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 29.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love these! These definitely provide heat to his knees, and quickly. Stay on perfectly without standing bandage, I think you just need to find the right size. I went off of SmartPak's size chart, but there is a more in depth one at the Back on Track site. I use them when he is standing on cross ties or in his stall but I have also walked him around a bit in the indoor and had no slipping issues.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Worked great! One of my horses was kicked in the knee by another horse. Two and a half weeks of poultices, wraps, and isolation was driving both of us crazy and not doing much good. I feared she would be lame forever. It was all pricey, but I bought the quick wraps and knee boots and used them together. They worked great and she didn't try to rub them off. She loved wearing them, and was soon doing well and was back running with the herd two weeks later.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Helps with an old injury It seems to help my mare with an old knee injury. She feels better and gets around better than without them. I ordered size medium for an AQHA mare and the knee boot on the non-swollen leg tends to slide down.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great fit I bought these wraps a few weeks ago and they're really nice! I bought a medium for my 16.1 thoroughbred gelding. They fit really well, as long as they're centered, they won't slip down. I bought them to see if they'd help with his tripping under saddle . I haven't been able to ride much, but hopefully they'll help.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from I have been using the knee boots on my 24 year old arthritic retired barrel racer mare. I thought it might help ease her pain. They are a bit of work to use as the wraps are totally necessary to keep them in place. I am disappointed--I thought I'd feel some warmth on her knees or on the inside of the boots when removed them but I don't

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not user friendly Bought these knee boots, disappointed on how well they DON'T stay up. Tried turning them upside down like SmartPak suggested, still do not stay up. Tried putting wraps on and STILL do not stay up. Wish they didn't have elastic straps, might eliminate the sliding down. Pleased with the results on how my horses knew feel, though.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Runs Large, but Good product I'm a huge fan of the BOT products, however I wasn't too satisfied with these boots. They strech very fast and run very big. I have a hard time of keeping them up. You have to have standing wraps on underneath for them to stay on. I purchased the BOT quick wraps as well and I can't use them with the knee boots they will just simply fall down. So I later than bought the BOT standing wraps. They seem to hold better. Not the quality I would have expected from Back on Track

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from My horse loves these! I bought these for my horse because he got cellulitis in his knee and I figured these would help (or at least couldn't hurt). I have to say I think they have helped a lot. I also use to hear his knees pop quite often, he's a 15 year old 1.20 jumper. I put these on him at shows and before lessons, and he tucks his knees a little better, and just seems like he feels better!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy to use Like all Back on Track products, these boots are not cheap, and I can't really say if it accelerated the healing process, but it sure beat attempting to wrap that knee (not even the vet's bandaging would stay put). This item, along with the Back on Track "Quick Wrap" allowed me to keep the knee clean and the leg (and knee boot) supported. I do beleive that these products work, as I use them on myself too and can feel the effects.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Invention for horses Really loved these boots. I've only used them 3 times, and only had them a couple of days. I LOVE them. I tried them on my sore elbows first. You can't deny they are working, and if you try- you haven't left them on long enough. Give them a chance!! My horse had almost no reaction the first time, but the second time had a ton of release. He was licking and chewing and yawning and pawing. He showed me they were working for him. I bought them for some sudden fluid he had in his knee. They are worth the price, the magnetic stuff is soo much more expensive. I bought from smartpak because of their AWESOME free shipping and great staff, and they have lived up to and went beyond my expectations again- they replaced my boots, no questions asked! I do LOVE these boots, no doubt, but the top velcro strap came loose and just hung by a thread on the right boot within just 2 wears, not sure how- but again, smartpak being as awesome as there, are replacing it no issue at all. I will definitely be buying hock boots, a blanket, a brace for my older aunt, and some stuff for myself. :) OH by the way, my horse is 5 years old, and has had multiple issues, this is definitely what he needed to complete his final step to rehabilitation. I've not been able to see the effects YET in the saddle, but have felt his legs and seen him feeling a bit better in the pasture, I'd say that's pretty good for just a couple hours of wear.
    Date published: 2012-11-02
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Product My horse had a really weird knee injury where his knee fills up with fluid every once and awhile. Not sure exactly what he did or how he does it. The vet believes it's because he sleeps on his pasterns and therefore the fluid builds up to his knees. He's never lame or impacted from this it just looks like a balloon. The back on track knee boots have totally cured him from this. By wearing these boots, they reduce swelling completely. I've also noticed improvement during our rides and when jumping. Just be slow to introduce him/her to the boots, at least for my boy, he filled within 15-20 minutes of wearing them the first few days. I totally swear by the back on track products!!
