    I have the knee brace for my knee. I swear by the product and it does work. I had a full ACL and MCL replacement in March of this year. I had problems riding for even an hour before I had to get dragged off my saddle by someone. I got the back on track knee brace because my horses Massage Therapist sells them and suggested I get it. I went on a trail ride a couple weeks ago and ended up riding for 4 hours and my knee was only a tad sore. So, I say if they worked for me, then they will work for the horses . I mainly wear it during the day since that's when I'm walking around and doing activity and that's when my knee bothers me the most. I take it off when I sleep though.

    My horse has arthritis in one hock and with the help of joint injections and Previcox he is very happy and in full PSG-level work. So don't worry, there is hope!

    We use the quick-wraps on the race horses and I have the western saddle pad and exercise boots for my horse. They really do help a lot.

    Thank you again, folks!

    Just to give an update...

    She went through the set of IV injections (we didn't do adequin (spell?) or hock injection). Now on supplements I got from my vet (very similar to Smartpack joint), and I put BOTs on every night (will stop for a week next week). Vet said he'd wait on IM injections or hock injections unless it gets worse. I do keep Previcox too in stock (just in case), but I didn't give her any as of yet.

    I started riding her again (in fact after the 1st shot per vet's advise). Knock on wood so far. I don't ride whole lot, but we do both - trot and canter, and she doesn't seem to have much problems with picking leads and all, and is not resistant to what I ask for.

    Awesome! The longer she's on the supplements you will notice more of a difference. For good!

    Glad to hear she is doing well...

    I love Back On Track products. They use ceramic infused fibers in their products that reflect the horse's body heat, which reduces inflammtion.

    My horse currently has the Royal Quick Wraps, a full set of No-Bows and the Royal Rug. I really believe they work. They Wraps and No-Bows keep his legs nice and tight without inflammtion and the blanket is wonderful. After taking the blanket off and then riding, his muscles/back are all warmed up and ready to work.

    I highly recommend these products.

    My 25yo QH has bad arthritis in one hock. I use the magnetic hock boots every time I ride- I put them on as soon as I bring him in to groom and such. I'd always heard you weren't supposed to leave them on more than a few hours and not overnight, but I guess if people do it then it can't be that bad? I've left them on like 4 hours before and his hocks were warm when I took them off.

    I also give Pentosan injections myself which are a great help! The oral supplement that I have personally found to work the best for me is Flex Force. It has HA, glucosamine, and MSM all in it.

    Arthritis is definitely not a "death sentence," it just requires a little more care and management but it can be dealt with. At least you know for sure now and not later, whereas I found out many many years into it where it had gotten to a point of bad bone spavin where there was no option to get into the joint for hock injections. -.-
