    Comments about Back On Track Royal Padded Hock Wraps:

    Purchased these boots for my horse who has capped hocks from laying in his stall. Deep bedding helps, but these boots make his hocks feel 100% better.

    • Easy to put on
    • Reduces swelling


    • Don't tighten straps
    • Must Use Wraps Under
    • Straps Tear Easily

    Best Uses

    • Capped Hocks

    Comments about Back On Track Royal Padded Hock Wraps:

    This is the next generation of hock boots and I like the padding. The first set I ordered tore within 2 weeks. Schneiders sent me a replacement pair and there were new instructions indicating it was important to NOT tighten the top strap and that standing wraps would be advised. These won't stay up if there are no standing wraps to hold them. Once that was resolved, the product works great! I used them overnight and they brought the swelling down considerably. I'm a big fan of back-on-track products. Schneiders was great about sending a replacement pair out right away!

      Comments about Back On Track Royal Padded Hock Wraps:

      Only used 4 days and seeing an improvement. Swelling in hock has decreased and have only been putting this on for 4 hours a day. Easy to use and stays on well with a standing wrap below it. I have the hock wrap. I turn my mare out in a small pen and the wrap is still on 4 hours later.

      • Adjustable
      • Flexiblity Is Great


        Best Uses

          Comments about Back On Track Royal Padded Hock Wraps:

          The hocks are one of the hardest areas to keep wrapped up well, while maintaining comfort and flexiblity for the horses hind leg activation.
          These hock wraps, in my opinion are the industry standard to meet.

          How Back on Track Products Work:

          By combining modern textile technology and traditional Chinese medicine which is supported by scientific studies, Back on Track creates products that help people, horses and dogs achieve a more active and comfortable life. Back on Track's joint and muscle support are all made of functional textiles with heat reflective properties. The textile is a synergy of ancient Chinese experience and modern scientific textile technology. During the manufacturing of polyester- or polyester fibers, the ceramic particles are fused into the fibers. When heated, the ceramic particles radiate heat back towards the body. This reflected heat is long-wave heat radiation, which is also known as long wave infrared radiation.

          How long do the Back on Track products work?
          Since the ceramic particles are melted into the threads they can never wash out, and our products will always be effective. Some of the first horse wraps we made are still going strong after daily use for over 10 years. If you have been using our products for a while, and feel you don’t see the same results as at the beginning, simply take a break for a couple of weeks and try again. While using our products the body can get used to feeling better, so you may no longer see an increased difference. After taking a break you will most likely see that difference again. If you have any questions please call us so we can help you answer any of your concerns.

          Heat Radiation:
          It is well established and documented that long wave infrared heat radiation increases blood circulation. The increased blood circulation in the tissues helps to relieve muscle tension and improve performance. One important property is the injury prevention effect, which you get when the protections are used for training and competition.
          Heat energy can be transported in three ways: conduction (transfer), convection and/or radiation.


          • When heat transfer or conduction occurs, the heat in a material spreads from one part of the material to another.
          • Convection is the loss of heat when a heated liquid or gas (e.g. air) is displaced, carrying the heat with it. The insulating material in ordinary clothing and joint supports, for example cotton, wool and neoprene, is designed to prevent convection and thus retains body heat in the air outside the skin.
          • Radiation occurs when a heat source emits heat radiation, whereupon it collides with another surface and heats it. Back on Track's products work with radiant heat, the purpose of which is to avoid trapping the heat through insulation. This is so that the protection has a respiratory function, while heat energy in the body tissues increases.


          People and animals radiate body heat, both at rest and in activity, however less heat is radiated when at rest. When a material is hit with heat rays, three things can occur.

          • The rays can pass straight through the material, which is called transmittance. An example of this is when the sun's heat rays hit a glass plate. The majority of the heat radiation passes through the glass. You would feel this effect if you were to stand in a room with the sun shining through the window.
          • The second thing that can happen is that the rays bounce on the material's surface and are reflected away, called reflectance. If all the heat is reflected the material will not be heated as none of the rays radiate through the material.
          • The third that can happen is the material absorbs the heat rays, which is called absorbance. Radiated heat can have different wavelengths depending on the temperature of the heat source and the material. Radiant heat is usually within the range of what is called infrared radiation, which means wavelengths between 0.7 microns and 1 mm. A material absorbs different amounts of heat radiation depending on the wavelength of the radiation. This is called the material's absorption spectrum. The radiant heat absorbed increases the heat content of the material.


          A material has not only an absorption spectrum but also an emission spectrum. An emission spectrum essentially means that different materials radiate heat of various wavelengths within different temperatures. The amount of radiation and the radiation wavelength varies depending on the heat source temperature and the emission spectrum of the heat source materials. Generally, one can say that the lower the temperature heat source is the longer the wavelength of the heat radiation.

          When manufacturing the polyester and polypropylene fibers that Back on Track products are made of, ceramic particles are fused into the textile fibers. The selection of these ceramic particles is based on which absorption and emission spectrum they contain. The result is that when the ceramic particles absorb the body's heat radiation, they expel heat of a specific wavelength, which is based in the long-wave infrared zone of the thermal radiation spectrum. It is well established and documented that long wave infrared heat radiation has a pain reducing effect and increases blood circulation.

          Just like other materials, the body's tissues have their own absorption spectrum. The wavelength that the ceramic particles issue is absorbed in the cells. A signal is sent to the brain telling it that heat energy has increased, to which the brain opens up the veins. The absorption happens not only in the skin but also deeper down the tissue, which makes the veins wider not only superficially but also in the muscles and around the joints. The increased blood circulation in the tissues relieves muscle tension and strengthens the body's own ability to reduce inflammation and heal injuries. The products are therefore often used in cases where inflammation is part of the problem. Another important application is injury prevention, which you get when the protections are used for training and competition.

          Our Padded Hock Wraps are a cotton/polyester blend material of our state-of-the-art Welltex fabric infused with ceramic powder. The ceramic reflects your horse’s natural body warmth and creates a soothing far infrared thermal heat. Heat therapy is a well-recognized method used to relieve and heal injured muscles, joints, and tendons. When you wrap your horse’s legs with these wraps, our unique ceramic infused fabric creates gentle heat, which may help decrease swelling and soften or completely reduce wind puffs without the use of liniment or poultice. Use after a strenuous ride and leave them on overnight. You can also use them when you ship your horse. These leg wraps are ideal for injury recovery or prevention.

          Instructions for Use:
          Back on Track leg wraps should be introduced gradually. They should only be applied for a total period of 4 hours per day for the first 2-3 days. After that, it is recommended to keep them on overnight. Caution should be used during the first 2-3 days as excessive use from the outset may cause legs to "fill up" due to increased blood circulation. However, this is a good sign of efficacy. Please note that physical responses can be variable. Often you will notice a reduction of puffy or sore joints within a few hours or days. Occasionally however, you will need to persevere for 10 days to 30 days, particularly with established long-term injuries.

          Machine washable up to 90°F or 30°C. Use normal detergents that do not contain bleach or fabric softeners. Air dry only, do not tumble dry.
