The Back on Track® Polo Wraps are perfect for use during everyday riding. Made
from 100% ceramic fabric, the Back on Track Polos use infrared reflective heat
to help increase blood circulation and prevent and reduce swelling in your
horse’s legs. By using these polo wraps during exercise, the Back on Track® effect is maximized due to the fact that your horse produces
more heat during activity which is then reflected in infrared long waves. These
polos are meant to make direct contact with your horse’s legs in order to have
an effect, do not use leg wraps or pads underneath. The Back on Track Polo
Wraps are not meant for overnight use due to the risk of the wraps being
fastened too tight, thus decreasing blood flow.
How to Use Back on Track® Products:
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 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.
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 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!
