How to wash Back on Track horse products

If you are like me, you are constantly looking for ways to improve your horse’s performance (or keep them healthy and sound!) While there are a wide variety of alternative therapies available to horse owners, a product line I particularly like are the Back on Track horse products. Using ceramic technology, these products increase circulation in damaged areas to increase healing. Many riders and trainers use them before and after competition (they also have saddle pads and “back pads” to speed warm-up time).

The No-bows have been great for Spiker's legs

My products get a lot of use (right now, I have the No-bows to help speed healing of a torn suspensory ligament in Spiker’s leg) so I need to ensure that when I wash them, I do so in a way that products the ceramic fibers. Too much heat can damage the fibers, so also follow the directions to keep your Back on Track products clean and working effectively.

Naturally, keeping them clean is a part of any equine item, and if your horse is at all like mine, most of his stuff ends up pretty dirty pretty quickly.

The only problem with this product is once you try it, you will want more! I’m glad Santa is coming soon, Spiker is crossing his hooves for a pair of Back on Track polo wraps for when he comes back into work in the spring. Happy washing!


[Excerpted from]

Back on Track products are machine washable up to 90°F or 30°C, using normal detergents that do not contain bleach. They should be air dried only. Please note: Do not use bleach or fabric softeners, and do not tumble dry. If you wish to iron these products, do so at a maximum of 50°C. As the ceramic powder is actually melded into the polyester/polypropylene threads, it will not separate when washed. The textile will however deteriorate with prolonged use.
