The Back on Track therapy works with your horses own body heat. Used for both injury prevention as well as injury recovery.

Instructions
Instructions for Use:
Back on Track Hock Boots should be gradually introduced by using them for 2-4 hours for the first 3-5 days. After that you may use them overnight 2-3 weeks. Give the horse a break from use for 4-7 days, then use again for 2-3 weeks without the slow introduction period. Use your own judgment and see how the horse responds.  Back on Track recommends using a standing wrap to support the Hock Boots.

If you do any injections to the hocks, wait 4 days to use the Hock Boots after injections.     

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 Hock Wraps is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 137.
Rated 2 out of 5 by from Sore rubs!!! Beware I used the hock shileds as per instruction -the first few days they were on for up to 4h only, and then - overnight in the stall. After only 1week of overnight use my horse developed a severe rub sore on the right hock from them. The quality seems not so good as well, since I already had to repair the middle strap and they show signs of wearing off. I give 2stars only because of the fast delivery.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Seems to be working I have a 23 year old horse who is officially retired now and has had hock arthritis for 10+ years. The transition to barefoot behind had her seeming really sore, so we decided to try these. I've been using them for about an hour a day for the last few days, starting slowly as her skin and coat are pretty sensitive and she already has some hock rubs. She definitely is moving more and looks more comfortable, though we also had the farrier adjust her angles at the same time so hard to say which had more effect. So far I don't see a down side and the cost is pretty reasonable compared to almost anything else. She is a 16.1 Oldenburg cross and the large works well for her.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Made a world of difference!! These hock wraps have made a world of difference in my horse! We recently found out that his hocks have almost completely fused, and we got him these wraps to try along with his supplements and medication. He’s moving better than he ever has been. I was worried they would fall down due to some of the reviews, but he wears them every night and they’re always still in place in the morning! I got a size small for my 14.2 appy. Highly recommend!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Happy Horse My horse loves these and gets excited to have them on every night. He has hock arthristis.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Beware! Might cause extreme rubs I usually love BOT products, so it pains me to say, these boots suck. My horse wore them overnight and had such deep rubs, he now has white hair on the point of his hock from the scars. The rubs took 3+ months to heal. I only used the right boot for 1 night (you can still see his skin attached to the seam right on the point of the hock (no seriously, the seam is right at the pointiest part…) and the left boot is sitting unused in the original bag. I won’t even sell these for fear of what they’ll do to another horse. I’d stay away from these if I were you!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works magic! These wraps have worked magic on my 28-year-old retired eventer! He has pretty severe arthritis in his hocks and going up the hill to the pasture was becoming obviously uncomfortable for him. We'd bought these wraps a few years ago but I pulled them back out and he wears them while getting a good grooming. After I take them off, he marches right up the incline with little to no discomfort! I am so pleased to see him more comfortable and definitely recommend giving these a try if your horse has stiff hocks!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great fit! I purchased this for my horse who has swelling in his right jock due to lymphedema. It does a great job to help reduce the swelling and it is easy to place and remove. I believe it helps to relieve some of the stiffness in his joint too!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Had a horrible experience with these Heard such good things about Back on Track products. Rubbed the top of my horses hocks. Scabbed over, hair fell out. Now has permanent white scar hairs on his sorrel legs. Back on Track did refund my money, but was really disappointed in the product.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Works great after minor modification! My chestnut mare has very sensitive skin and these boots rubbed across her Achilles’ tendon until it was raw. I simply added 4” wide strips of medical tape on the inside of the boot where the rubbing occurred and now it’s super smooth on her skin and no more issues!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good buy! Size Small fit my 15.2 half arab gelding well. Giving these a whirl before I start hock injections for some stiffness.
