How to Use Back on Track® Products:
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.
reason we recommend starting with a maximum of 4 hours use is that some
horses experience swelling in the beginning due to the increased blood
circulation, which is actually a good indication that the ceramic fabric is
taking effect. This initial 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.
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
the introductory period of 2-3 days it is important to continue to use the
product intensively at least 10, preferably 20 days, before being able
to assess its impact. Since this ceramic fabric reflects more your horse’s body
heat radiation as they move, the effect is greatest if your horse wears the
product when active. Back on Track products also work while your horse is
resting and even when they are asleep!
