The Shoulder Guard is designed to optimize freedom of movement, as well as minimizing the rubbing/chafing effect of Blankets. Made with the revolutionary Welltex™ ceramic infused fabric to provide soothing, pain-relieving far infrared therapy to help alleviate problems with stiffness and injuries to muscles & soft tissues. The Shoulder Guard is easy to apply, comfortable and has three dimensions, removable padding to assist in reducing pressure around the withers/shoulder area.
Shoulder guard has removable pads across the chest and on both sides of the withers. It slips overhead and has a Velcro belly strap.
Choose the same size as a blanket.
Instructions for Use
The Back on Track shoulder guard should be introduced gradually. We recommend you start by using it for 2-4 hours for the first 3-4 days and then leave it on overnight for the best results. After 3-4 weeks use it for 3-6 days a week and you will see what a difference it makes for your horse.
Maybe use under the Fleece Blanket or Mesh Sheet.
Please note that physical responses can be variable.
Often you will notice a reduction of muscular stiffness 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.
For best results, leave shoulder guard on overnight after an introductory period or let your horse wear it prior to exercise to help muscles warm up. Not recommended for turnout.
