The Back on Track company manufactures joint and muscle protection, which are manufactured from the Welltex® textile which is sold under the registered brand name Back on Track.
The textile is made up of fibers of polyester and polypropylene (some of the products are mixed with cotton fibers) with a ceramic powder fused into the fibers. The ceramic gives the fabric its unique property, which reflects body heat in the form of infrared heat radiation.
The production takes place in our own factories in China and each time a new batch of ceramic textile is manufactured an independent university laboratory measures the level of reflected heat and it's wavelength. In this way we can ensure consistency in quality and efficiency.
Back on Track's head office is based in Uppsala, Sweden, with subsidiaries in Germany, England, Finland, Canada, and France. Sales are made through retailers all over Sweden and in Norway, Denmark, Austria, Switzerland, Holland, Spain, Iceland, Hungary, Malta, Slovakia, Slovenia, Iran, Canada, USA, Australia and New Zealand. New dealers are added all the time, both in Sweden and around the world.
"We use Back on Track products for both our horses and ourselves. We have seen such major benefits over the years, and the products fit perfectly with our emphasis on prevention of and rapid treatment of injuries," Colleen reflected. "In addition, this therapy is not labor intensive and is very easy to use."
Having recently celebrated their 75th year in business, Shapley's has been bringing quality horse care products to the market for long enough to have perfected the art of coat care and "turn-out." Although their business began with their exclusive treatment for skin issues, "M-T-G", the company now offers an extensive and all-inclusive line of equine grooming products.
Generations of horsemen around the world representing a wide range of breeds and disciplines, have continued to place their trust in us making our company a leader in the horse care industry. Shapley’s mission statement is that our customers, human and equine, come first. We will always maintain our tradition of innovation driven by your requirements.
"Taking great care of our horses' skin and hair is very important to us at McQuay Stables. Shapley's products are an essential part of this process. Not only do we want to be sure our horses look great when we show them, but we make great effort to maximize the comfort and health of their skin and coat. We can trust that the products from Shapley's are safe and effective for our use both at home and on the road," Colleen said.
"My experience showing horses taught me that the closest and safest position on a horse was at the withers. This position allows you to move with the horse even when the horse decides to do a 180 degree turn," says Bob.
"Knowing that position is essential to performance. I have designed each of our saddles to place you close to the pocket created by the horse's shoulders and withers. The ground seat in our saddles puts you, when fit without a saddle pad, close to the horse's back. Our fenders are designed to hang directly beneath you and allows you to sit up directly over your feet and maintain your balance even when you stand up in your stirrups or sit straight down. Any other design would tip your torso, thus changing the position of your thigh and preventing you from having the maximum ability to swing your legs forward or back," he continues.
Bob's offers many saddle styles and options. The fairest way to decide which Bob's best fits your needs is to call one of our fine dealers or see us at an upcoming horse show or event.
Tim stated, "Bob's saddles offer some of the greatest saddle quality available, and I love the fit of the Tim McQuay model for both horse and rider."
The original neoprene backed felt saddle pad! This high quality synthetic felt is backed with scuba quality neoprene. The WonPad will help to prevent saddle slippage and promote sweating which will keep your horse cooler. Won Pad is so sure you will love their pad, that they allow you to ride it 7 days and if you don't like it, you don't own it. Simply return it for a full refund.
"The WonPad keeps our horses' backs comfortable, and we love the cleansability of it. A quick rinse makes it ready to dry fast and re-use. With the number of horses we ride, this is a necessity!" Tim explained.
APF Pro is the most advanced natural herbal formula for use in equine athletes. APF Pro combines the proven nutritional technology of the original APF (Advanced Protection Formula) with the muscle-building power of 20-hydroxyecdysone (20E). 20E is a safe and natural plant extract found in Rhaponticum carthamoides. 20E is one of the most widely researched nutrients used by top athletes and body builders for its remarkable ability to safely increase lean muscle mass during strength training. None of the adverse effects of anabolic steriods are found with 20E.
APF Pro is unequalled in its protection of both the immune system and cellular metabolism. APF Pro gives your horse all the stress protection unique to our original formula, plus the added gastric health benefit of Aralia mandschurica. Veterinary researchers have found Aralia can have important protective benefits against stomach upset caused by stress.
Available through SmartPak, APF Pro combines APF - the only natural herbal formula backed by university-level research- with advanced muscle-building and gastric health benefits to deliver the most effective nutritional formula to support your horse's health and performance.
"Both Reiners and Jumpers have difficult jobs. APF Pro has really helped our horses stay healthy through the stress," Tim said.
Founded in 1976, Fly Predators have become the preferred method of fly control for all types of animal owners and others with an abundance of rotting organic matter that creates flies. The company has served hundreds of thousands of customers and the majority of them use Fly Predators as long as they have their animals. Offering other insect control products such as fly traps and sprays and the "Mosquito Torpedo", Spalding labs has become a major source for insect control.
Spalding Labs also offers "Bye Bye Odor", a natural yet effective odor control product, completely safe around animals of all sorts. Since keeping odors under control around horse farms can be a daunting task, Bye Bye Odor's strength and long-lasting effects are an excellent resource.
"Fly Predators have made our farm a virtually fly free zone. Flies are such a nuisance, getting in the way of both general horse health and happiness and efficient training, so we are really glad to have reduced them so much," Tim said.
"Bye Bye Odor works so well around our farm. We strive to use products that are safe for our horses, and this is the first safe yet effective odor control product we have ever found! We also bring it to the shows." Colleen explained.
