This fleece rug by Back on Track® is an exceptional quality blanket with therapeutic features! Lined with the Welltex™ ceramic infused fabric which when in contact with a body of a horse creates FAR infrared waves that in turn provide therapeutical warmth and may help with pain and tension relief. This rug is great to use before and after the exercise to warm up and cool down. To provide the most comfortable fit, this blanket is strengthened with soft and supple fabric in front to avoid chaffing around the sensitive wither area. Not to mention, this rug is great for transporting or a short stable stay as it has crossover belly closures, a tail flap and strap, so no worries about leaving your horse in the stall for a couple minutes to dry after schooling just to find the rug later scattered all over the stall in tiny pieces, because somehow your beloved pony managed to find the way to tear the rug with no straps and closures on.
