The Fleece Rug may be used both as a cooler, transportation rug and in the horsebox during the warmer months of the year. The rug may be used to advantage prior to exercise/competition in order to warm up muscles beforehand, and following exercise/competition sessions in order to aid the muscles' recovery. This therapeutic rug has a lining of polypropylene infused with Welltex? and has an exterior cover of polyester. In order to minimise the risk of chafing or overstretching, the rug is strengthened around the neck's opening with a polyester fabric. The Fleece Rug has soft furry fabric around the withers to minimise the risk of chafing. It has double buckles and crossover belly surcingles with easy pop closures. To avoid overstretching, the back is reinforced with a band. The rug has a large tail protective flap and a tail strap.
I have used Back On Track no-bows on my horse, as well as the saddle pad, and decided to invest in a blanket after seeing how much the other products had helped. I use my Back On Track fleece rug before every ride and really feel that this blanket helps my horse start each ride looser and happier. I usually put it on a couple hours before I ride & can definitely feel a difference when I forget to! My horse fits a smal 72" blanket, and the 72"/135cm (even though on the packaging when received it stated 75/135) fit her perfectly so if your horse is on the larger side of a size I would suggest sizing up! Although this blanket is quite expensive, I feel it is worth it. (Besides, there are so many awesome sales on Horze.com that I'm pretty sure it could be purchased on sale.:)Written on by madelaine99
Literally. This is the best therapeutic blanket I've ever used. I almost never haul my horse without it, it helps keep his muscles loose and relaxed in the trailer. We get to shows and he is feeling good and ready to work. I also put it on him after hard workouts and it really helps with preventing soreness the next day! It's also perfect as a thermal to put under his blanket in the winter, and keep him nice and toasty.Written on by Jessica
Love back on track products. They are great as a warm up blanket, helps the muscles and relaxation.Their products are very well made and wash nicely (do not put in dryer unless you need a pony size!)Written on by Anonymous
I love the back on track saddle pads and now I decided to try the fleece sheet. Glad I did, well made and very useful for fall/winter use. MY horse wears a 72" and they are usually a little big on her but this fits to a T so they may run a little on the small side which you'll want to take into consideration when ordering. Fleece is soft and cleans up nicely with a brush. I have used it overnight and it does seem to help with her minor back issues. Will be able to use under a blanket in the winter.Written on by nancy
