The Therapeutic Equine Shoulder Guard from Back on Track is designed to optimize freedom of movement in the horse’s shoulders, as well as minimize the rubbing and chafing that can be caused by blankets. The Shoulder Guard is made with state-of-the-art Welltex material, which reflects your horse’s own body energy, creating a soothing far infrared thermal effect. This effect may increase blood circulation, helping your horse’s muscles recover, stay loose, and become less inflamed. Our horse shoulder guard has removable pads that fit across the chest and on both sides of the withers to ensure total protection and comfort. It slips overhead and has a hook and loop belly strap to help keep the guard snug to your horse’s body. When selecting your horse’s size for a shoulder guard, this should match the size of the Back on Track blanket you are using on your horse.
