Deadline Extended for 3rd Annual Back on Track ‘Horse Therapy’ Essay Contest

We’ve extended the contest deadline for one more week! Share the story of how a horse has helped you through a rough patch for a chance to win a pair of Back on Track Therapeutic Quick Wraps for YOUR furry Freud.


Our last Back on Track essay contest winner Lara Oles and her para dressage partner, Bella: “She is my athlete, who makes up for my paralyzed arm and leg, and makes me feel whole again.”

Horses are the best therapists. Which is good, because owning one often means you can’t afford the human type. They help us make it through tough times, keep things in perspective, heal a broken heart, recover from loss or just a very bad conference call.

Wouldn’t it be great to be able to give something special back, something that makes them feel good all after those days, weeks, months, years of working hard to please us…

…something like this?


To kick off round three of our popular weekly “Horse Therapy” series, featuring reader-submitted stories about how horses have made us feel better, Back on Track is giving away something to help your horse feel better: Therapeutic Quick Wraps.

The wraps are a cotton/polyester blend material of Back on Track’s 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 warmth. Warmth therapy is a well-recognized method used to relieve and heal injured ligaments, joints and tendons. When you wrap your horse’s legs with these wraps, the fabric creates gentle warmth, which may help decrease swelling and soften or completely reduce wind puffs without the use of liniment or poultice. Leave them on overnight after a strenuous ride, put them on for shipping, or use for injury recovery or prevention.

What Quick Wrap users have to say:

Really works! I have an OTTB and he had some wind puffs. Notice the HAD part. I use them a couple of weeks a month and they haven’t come back.–Kathleen

Never use liniment again! I had an OTTB that always stocked up, no matter what I did. I became a pro at using pillow wraps. I discovered these quick wraps and my life changed. Not only are they so much faster then using pillow wraps, you save money from not using liniment, and they work. My boy had the tightest legs around. They work so great! –Rachael

Wonderful! These are great for anyone to use. Much simpler than a wrap, so any groom can put it on. Windpuffs and any thickness in the legs will disappear in days. –Wyatt
