A best seller, this Back on Track® Therapeutic Mesh Sheet may be helpful for horses that have tight muscles, sore backs, arthritic issues or a tendency to be stiff. Use this therapeutic sheet just prior to exercise to prepare muscles, after exercise to assist in recovery, or leave on overnight (after introductory phase*) for best results. The therapeutic benefits aids all horses from pleasure mounts to top competitors in any discipline.

This horse sheet is made of state-of-the-art Welltex® material which is embedded with ceramic particles. The particles reflect your horse’s own body energy, creating a soothing far infrared thermal effect. This effect may increase blood circulation, which in turn helps your horse’s muscles stay loose, recover and become less inflamed.

For optimal results, the Mesh Sheet should be used anywhere from 30 minutes to overnight. The fabric never loses its effectiveness even with repeated washings. This sheet secures with two chest buckles and two cross belly surcingles. It may be used alone or in place of a liner under a winter blanket.

*Start using this sheet gradually with a 2-4 hour period for the first 3-4 days to allow your horse’s body to become accustomed to its beneficial effects. After the introductory phase, this sheet may be left on overnight.

Terms for Horse Blankets & Sheets

Ballistic
Ballistic nylon refers to a thick and very tough synthetic fabric. It was originally designed for use in military jackets to protect the wearer from shell fragments and flying debris. A blanket/sheet with ballistic nylon outer will be difficult to tear.

Breathable
Most blankets and sheets are made of woven fabrics that allow body vapor to escape through miniscule holes to help prevent moisture buildup. Breathability is not the same as moisture wicking.

Denier
Denier refers to the thickness of the fabric used as the outer layer of the garment, and it provides an indication of how durable the garment will ultimately be. The higher the denier of the blanket, the heavier the fabric feels, and the stronger, more wind-resistant and more water-resistant the fabric is. Therefore, a 1,680 denier blanket is more durable than a 600 denier blanket. If your horse is turned out in rough terrain or enjoys rough play with pasture mates, then a higher weight denier is most appropriate.

Ripstop
Ripstop nylon refers to a high denier fabric woven in a crosshatch pattern that, in the unlikely event a tear occurs, prevents the hole from spreading. A blanket/sheet with ripstop outer can puncture or tear, but the hole will not spread on its own.

Moisture-Wicking
The fabric is constructed to pull moisture away from a horse's skin and hair to the outside surface. Moisture-wicking fabrics are used in coolers.

Water-Resistant
Water-resistant blankets and sheets provide some protection from moisture, but are not designed to repel water to protect the horse fully when it is exposed to downpours, snow or sleet for prolonged periods. Most stable sheets or blankets are water-resistant to help prevent saturation from soiled bedding.

Waterproof
Waterproof means that the blanket fabric has been treated with a coating to repel water. Additionally, seams on waterproof blankets and sheets are placed so as to prevent leaks, or they are taped and sealed.

Weight
Turnout blankets are available in a range of weights, where the weight refers to the amount of poly fill between the outer and inner layers. The fill adds warmth and insulates the horse's body heat. It is measured in gram weights; the higher the number of grams, the warmer and heavier the blanket. Fill amounts vary between blanket manufacturers. As a general rule, a lightweight blanket has 100 grams of fill; a medium weight blanket has between 180-200 grams of fill; a heavyweight blanket has 300+ grams of fill.

A Note about "Lite" (versus "Sheet") Blankets: In some blanket lines, manufacturers refer to "lightweight" blankets as "Lite." These have 100 grams of fill for insulation. "Lite" blankets should not be confused with "Sheets," either for turnout or stable use, as a sheet will never have any fill.
