I'll start my testimonial off with a confession that I am superstitious. I should also mention that i have a mare with a strong personality who is also extremely sensitive. I was given a Back on Track saddle pad as a gift, and although I was skeptical, became a firm believer that my horse loved it by the way she felt under saddle. The story continues with the "magic pad" in our barn. Like all horse owners, I continued to look for products that would make my horse comfortable, along with soothing "marezilla".
A fellow barn gal lent me her "magic pad" (The Back on Track Therapueutic Horse Back Blanket). This item is the back pad which I use on her while I am grooming and tacking up. I can bring in my mare from the field all jazzed up, and in minutes I have a quiet, happy, warm horse who is ready to work with a positive attitude. I am superstitious because I never ever ride her without her Back on Track saddle pad, and after being "baked" with the "magic" back pad!

Hi Mary, I just saw your request for Back on Track stories/photos.....and had to giggle because I just recently posted an entry on the Facebook page I keep for my little Thoroughbred rescue gelding. He tells stories about things here on the farm in Kentucky, seen through his eyes. Here's the link to the posting about Back on Track bandages and the farm kittens on the "Spanky of the Bluegrass" page. Enjoy...

I just saw your article and I'm not sure if I have told you before- I used the Back on Track knee wrap (I have had 3 knee surgeries) and I have tendinitis on my right elbow and it is like a magic cure for that too. I tried the human products before the horsey ones & I love them :)
I wear the Back On Track underwear. I ALWAYS wear it on days I fly which is often as a Dressage judge. I have bad arthritis in my L4/L5 region (wonder why?). The Back on Track underwear has made a HUGE difference for me when flying in eliminating discomfort in the wonderful airplane seats. it is a GREAT product.
Thank you everyone for your contribution, and to Bo Lofvander and all the folks at Back On Track for your great products and contribution to Equestrian Sport.
