Some company sells a blanket that gets the blood circulating within about 20 minutes, but it's a sweet $200, so I don't have it. I think a simply human heating pad would do it.

You just have to see your distance...you don't have to like it.

There is a company called Back on Track. They are made of special ceramic material that is supposed to reflect the heat from the horse and warm up their muiscles. I have not had any experience with these pads but they sound like something that might work for you. As for the side reins. If you are trying to warm up your horse by lunging him I would not use the side reins and just let him get the kinks out. Hope this helps.

Thank you, FF! I'll look into website to see if they have something for reasonable prices. :)

MBP, I actually tried the old heating pad for week or so. I think she's less stiff (and bucked less in fact!), but it's a pain in bum to take the whole thing (together with the cord, because it's unattachable) to the ring.
