Lux Ceramic Therapy® VTEK® Fleece Sheet

Item # 37862
This ceramic infused sheet reflects a horse’s own body heat to soothe stiffness and soreness while generating oxygen and nutrient rich blood to the areas across the shoulders, back, hip and rump. This sheet has our patented VTEK® wither relief design which is raised and shaped to significantly reduce pressure in the wither area. Use pre-event to warm and loosen muscles, post-event to help muscles recover and for horses recovering from injury and/or maintenance of aging or chronic conditions.

Features include:

  • Ceramic infused to use the horse’s own body heat to reduce soreness, reduce inflammation and increase blood flow to speed the healing process
  • 440g polar fleece with anti-static properties and a jersey finish on the top side is comfortable for all day wear
  • Our patented VTEK® Wither Relief significantly reduces pressure in the wither area
  • Adjusta-Fit® System at the shoulder optimizes the neck fit
  • Adjustable 2-buckle open front with Velcro assist to prevent gaping
  • Nylon lined chest and shoulders prevents rubs
  • Crisscross surcingle keeps sheet securely in place
  • Detachable leg straps keep sheet from shifting and twisting
  • Not recommended for turnout or for use on pregnant mares
  • Color: Royal Blue
  • Sizes: 84 or 86

How to Measure for a Horse Blanket:

How to Measure for a Horse Blanket
  • For best fit, stand horse squarely.
  • Measure from center of chest to edge of tail.
  • Take care to measure along the widest part of the shoulder and hindquarters.
  • The blanket measurement result is the blanket size.
  • If your measurement is in between sizes, round up to the next blanket size. Example: 73" = Size 74.

Benefits of Lux®
 
low maintenance
increases circulation
speeds pre-perfomance warm up
helps prevent injury
keeps horse loose & limber between classes
aids post-workout recovery
speeds rehabilitation from injury
reduces inflammation, soreness & arthritic pain
How it Works
 
The body radiates heat. Ceramic fibers in Lux™ have the unique ability to absorb, modify and emit this heat back into the body as Far Infrared Radiation. “FIR” penetrates deep into body tissue to expand blood vessels and increase circulation. Increased blood flow allows the body to fuel muscles and repair itself more efficiently.
 
Instructions
 
We recommend that you introduce treatment gradually: limit use to 4 hrs daily for the first 2-3 days.
 
Use the mesh sheet by itself or as a blanket liner. Great for sensitive-backed and older, arthritic horses. Apply sheet pre-performance, between classes, post-performance, or while trailering.
 
Machine wash at 30°C/86°F with mild detergent (we recommend our Schneiders Blanket Wash #20912). DO NOT use fabric softener. Line Dry Only.

My OTTB loves it!

This helps my OTTB during warm up before dressage. She wears it after riding while I walk her for cooling down. Great quality and fit.

I would buy this product again

My usual brand is a comparable company for therapy blankets. I found this sheet, although not as thick and soft, well made and I could feel the heat produced from the special ceramic weave. I do like the jersey knit on the outside, easier to clean. It fits well, not generous - true to size. Seems comfortable and I love the color.

Love the fit

I have a back on track mesh sheet which my sensitive gelding loves but he has a giant neck and shoulders so I wanted something a little better-fitting to his body type for layering in winter so I ordered one of these. The fit is perfect (he is built like a 16 hand football player with his neck/shoulders and so is hard to fit) and he seems to like it but I'm not sure the effect is as strong as his back on track. Partly this could be that he has been tight in his shoulders/withers and this one has lining in those areas and so perhaps doesn't penetrate as well. Either way, I love the fit and I think we'll get some good use out of it. Perhaps schneiders could make one with a waterproof/turnout outer layer? :D

Great fit for a large warmblood

5

I have a large warmblood (18h) whose large neck and shoulders sometimes rub under other blankets. This fleece fits wide shoulders possibly the best of any blanket I've ever owned and works perfectly as a cooler or travel sheet on crisp days in FL. My horse wears anything between size 86-89 for most sheets and blankets and fits the 86 nicely for this sheet. I have the mesh sheet from a different therapeutic brand and had to size up because of the tight shoulders in the other brand... If I did it again, I'd also purchase the Lux mesh sheet instead because of the impeccable fit!

Fits/wears Great

I use this on my 4yr old show horse after a ride while he cools out. I love that it is helping him feel better as well as helping him to cool out without getting chilled. I have used it alone or under a sheet or blanket. It fits really well and doesn't shift. Love the Schneider's Adjust-a-fit too.

Do these run true to size? My horse wears a 74 in your New Briton bellyband, and he is an Andalusian with fairly broad shoulders and back.

DJ

-I purchased a 78 for my mare. The length is good, but the shoulders are a bit big for her. I have had to tighten the shoulder straps to the max on both sides. She is an OTTB, so it would probably be good for your Andalusian.

lvmauburn

I think they run true to size. My horse's are 78s and this fits them well.

sharilc

Yes, these do run true to size. They are our VTek Fit so they are more generous in the drop and offer more shoulder and wither coverage than the New Briton Style of blanket so you will see a slight fit different but you will love it. You should order the size you always order.

Customer Service

I have one for my  Andalusian and it is true to size - huge neck and shoulders - he wears a 82.A back on track sheet just chokes him.

What is the difference in usages in the two, Fleece Sheet and the Mesh sheet? I am very interested in the sheets but do not understand the benefit difference in the two. Does the description on the one also apply to the other which has no description? Marianne

Marianne

Summer use vs winter use. Polar fleece would wick moisture also so if they wanted to use a sheet after they ride and the horse is damp the fleece would be good to use.

Customer Service

I think they have the same properties, but one is fleece, and one mesh. Sent from my iPad
