The Back on Track® Western Saddle Pad is made from robust cotton/polyester lined with the revolutionary Welltex™ ceramic infused fabric. When riding with the Saddle Pad, the horse's back muscles relax and warm up quickly. The body responds positively to the far infrared wave, increasing circulation which can aid mobility and help avoid injury. The gentle warmth induces blood flow, which helps relieve muscle tension and improves suppleness of the back. The Western Saddle Pad is a thinner design, allowing it to be used underneath a thicker Saddle Pad or Rug. Its size and shape is such that it can be covered by a Show Blanket during competitions.
