Designed to tackle equine back problems particularly common in performance horses. Contoured design provides maximum coverage from the withers and shoulder blades, along the spine and over the Sacroiliac joint. Excellent for use in recovery after kissing spine surgery.
The surcingle's design minimizes migration of the Back Blanket and keeps the cold compressed against the horse's back. Easy peel velcro makes application and removal simple.
Reusable Cold Capsule Inserts stay cold for over two hours allowing maximum penetration of cold therapy to deep muscle and connective tissue. Therapeutic benefits of cooling are achieved with Ice Horse Cold Capsule Inserts because they:
- Cool 3x longer than gels: More cooling time means cold can penetrate to deep muscle and connective tissue
- Are reusable
- Refreeze within hours
- Coated with Microbe Care® for antimicrobial and antibacterial protection
The Ice Horse Back Blanket is also suitable for use after trailering your horse to alleviate the soreness that may occur after a long haul from constantly adjusting their weight in the trailer.

Back Blanket Horse: 51 inches long

Cold therapy is a huge part of my horses’ lives as one lives with kissing spines and the other is an upper level event horse. The Ice Horse back blanket has become an essential part of our routine as it allows me to ice important parts of their body with ease. In the winter we use the heat packets for heat therapy and all summer we use the ice packs for cold therapy after intense rides. I can’t imagine how uncomfortable they’d be or how difficult it would be to ice their backs without the back blanket. I can even leave one of my guys alone while he ices and use that time to get other chores done. If your horse has any type of back stiffness or arthritis I highly recommend it as it’s been a major game changer for us. 10/10 recommend.
I have a 17 yo Canadian Sport Horse. I use the back blanket after every ride in the trailer to keep her feeling good. She yawns and licks and chews the whole time she's enjoying her cold therapy treatment. It definitely helps her work out the soreness!
