Back on Track Saddle Pad No. II (Dressage) has the same characteristics as Saddle Pad No. I, having an innovative design with a high cut on the withers.
The difference on the No. II are the “D” ring fixing straps.
By moving the fixing straps to the front edge of the saddle pad, the pressure point caused of any additional stitching’s under the saddle area are removed.
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.
Available Colours: Black, White
|Materials||Main Fabric: 100% Cotton, Lining: 100% Polypropylene, Filling: 100% Polyester|
|Washing||Washed at a maximum of 40 degrees with gentle washing program.
About Back on Track:
The company Back on Track manufactures joint and muscle protection, which are manufactured from a “ceramic textile” which is sold under the registered brand name Back on Track.
The textile is made up of fibres of polyester and polypropylene (some of the products are mixed with cotton fibres) with a ceramic powder fused into the fibres. The ceramic gives the fabric its unique property, which reflects body heat in the form of infrared heat radiation.
How does Back on Track work?
It is well established and documented that long wave infrared heat radiation increases the blood circulation. The increased blood circulation in the tissues helps to relieve muscles tension and improves 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 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, where upon 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.
