Why We Love This

A versatile and handy product to have in any barn, the SmartTherapy® ThermoBalance® Back Pad will quickly become an integral part of your training program. Ceramic particles in its ThermoBalance® fabric absorb body heat and reflect it back to your horse as soothing far infrared rays, making this back pad a must-have for all disciplines and activity levels. These rays penetrate beneath the skin to activate blood flow, which may help decrease inflammation. The ceramic-infused textile is woven through-out to warm up and rejuvenate key muscle areas. Use this back pad as a quarter sheet during riding or lunging, or as a cover during pre or post ride grooming. 

Ceramic far infrared radiation (cFIR) technology:

  • Increases blood flow, promoting body’s natural healing process
  • May help decrease inflammation
  • Improves recovery
  • Protects from oxidative stress
Favorite Features:
  • ThermoBalance® fabric targets and soothes key muscle groups
  • Increased circulation quickens warm up and recovery
  • Ergonomic fit with contoured design and girth loops
  • Ideal for cold-backed, stiff, or performance horses

Sizing Chart for SmartTherapy® ThermoBalance® Back Pad
SmartTherapy® ThermoBalance® Back Pad is rated 2.8 out of 5 by 5.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Terrible Too Small Fit I am so disappointed in this product after eagerly anticipating its arrival just in time for winter riding. My pony is 14.2 hands, built like a thoroughbred (so no odd pony shape), and wears a 72" blanket. I ordered the Medium (72" - 76" blanket size), and it is way too small! As others have noted, the design makes the hindquarter area stick up oddly, so even if you didn't mind it ending nearer the croup, there is no way the blanket will lay correctly across the back. I should have read the reviews before purchasing. Great idea, horrible execution. Sadly, this is my experience with a lot of SmartPak products--the sizing is always off.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great fabric, odd fit Just received both the Large and Medium since my mare wears either a 76 or 78 blanket depending on the brand. The Medium is about 44" across. The Large is about 50" across. I really could have used these measurements so hoping they help someone else. The Medium was way too short! The length up and down is a standard size saddle pad. I use the SmartTherapy saddle pads and love them so I thought this would be great to use instead of an extra quarter sheet. I do like it, it's the same material as the saddle pads. It is Black with some sparkle. 4 Stars because it's an awkward fit. I'm hoping it will eventually mold to my mare's body but I also plan on adding a tail strap to keep the back ends from sticking out. It was better after our ride. There is a "fitted" curve to the top for the back and it sticks up. Not the end of the world, just looks a bit odd - you can see where it is higher in the back just before her rump, she is not shaped that way. Again, hoping it will mold the more we use it. The smaller size had the hump just behind the saddle and the whole thing sat very strangely. They really need to rethink the cut of the back half. Adding a tail strap will help.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Large fits an 81" blanket size The large fits my 17h warmblood very well. He wears an 81" blanket. I like using it as a saddle pad because it doesn't slip or move around like quarter sheets can sometimes do and the ceramic therapy feature really helps my horse's back stiffness.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from great idea - bad fit this blanket is way too small -- my mare is a thin OTTB and always measures a 75. The croup of the blanket sticks up well before her croup really weird fit. I almost thought it was a pony size --that is how small the blanket looked on her.
Date published: 2023-11-25
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Odd fit This is blue, not black. The medium, which should fit all my horses, is short, and the bump for the croup sticks up way before it, like in line with the hips. Very odd.
