Many horses suffer from leg and joint problems regardless of age or profession. Whether horses have a previous injury or are affected by old age, the joint inflammation can cause discomfort. This can result in your horse misbehaving, developing a reluctance to go forward, lameness, and numerous other symptoms. Unfortunately, many riders interpret the discomfort as bad behavior that needs discipline in order to resolve.
Did you know:
- Delayed muscle soreness (24—48 hours after exercise) may be caused by minor muscle or connective tissue damage, local muscle spasms that reduce blood flow, or a buildup of waste products from energy production.
- Trigger points may develop over time from the stress and strain of greater physical exertion, or from repeated use of a muscle resulting in soreness and decreased flexibility.
- Heavily exercised muscles may lose their capacity to relax, causing chronically tight muscles and loss of flexibility. When muscles are tight, blood flow is restricted, which can make the area be painful or sensitive.
Back on Track Royal Quick Wraps are a favorite among horse owners. Leveraging our Welltex technology, these all-in-one standing bandages may decrease swelling and help keep your horse’s legs cool and tight. State-of-the-art Welltex material uses the horse’s body energy to create a soothing infrared effect, allowing for increased blood circulation and relaxed muscles, tendons, joints and ligaments. The Royal Quick Wraps can be used for both injury prevention and recovery. These wraps can be left on overnight (after the initial introductory period) after a strenuous ride, and can also be used when shipping your horse. They are great for both the front or hind legs and measure equal in size.
Tom McCutcheon has been a long-time ambassador for Back on Track and uses their products in his everyday routine. “We use almost every single available Back on Track product every day in our barn,” he says. “From our training program to our Rehabilitation Center, they cover every aspect of keeping a healthy, happy horse.
“Before using Back on Track products, we went through a variety of products that claimed to help alleviate discomfort in your horse’s muscles, ligaments, tendons, joints and help prevent injuries. Nothing ever did what the products claimed, and then we tried Back on Track. Not only can we physically feel the difference in our horses, we can see it. Saying Back on Track has forever changed our program for the better is an understatement. I don’t recommend Back on Track as an option, as there is no other option. It’s a must-have product in every single barn.”
