    Default True to size of Back on Track sheets ?

    Do the sizes run true on the Back on Track sheets ? Don't know if I should get size 75 or 78.

    I would love to know the answer to this as well. I'm going to order the mesh one but can't decide between 81 and 84.

    whats a track sheet
    if you want something to liek a rug for a horse then any rug should be measured
    from wither to tail
    chest to tial
    and wither to elbow

    if its a 3/4 ride on then its wither to tail and wither to elbow

    Back on Track is a company that makes ceramic therapeutic sheets, blankets, wraps, and human back and wrist braces, among other things.

    We're just asking whether this brand runs true to size.

    I would go a bit bigger. I have an 80" for sale on Ebay because my guy is an 81"-ish but I found it very narrow around the chest/shoulder area. He is normally an 80"-82" depending on the brand.

    I am planning to buy another one, but in a generous 84".

    Yes, they do run true to size. My TB wheres a 75" in Weatherbeeta, and the 75" BoT mesh sheet fits him perfectly. (He measures about 74", but 74" is always too small, so I either get 75" or 76".)

    I agree that they can be a tad tight in the shoulder area for horses with a big shoulder/wither... so, getting an 84" instead of the 81" probably won't fix this problem because it's basically adding length front to back - as opposed to more room in the shoulder area, which is what you'd need...

    pretty true to size. I have several for all sizes of horses. But they don't really have to fit, fit. More like fly sheets, they're a drape.

    I just got a 75 for my horse that wears 75 in Weatherbeeta all the time. It was silly tight, so I'm going to get the 81. He does have a huge elbow and high wither so maybe that was it.

    I felt they kind of ran small too -- I had an 82 and it was small on my horse that is an 81 in Rambo and was just a little big on my horse that wears a 75 in Rambo. Not so big that he couldn't wear it, but a little long off his butt. This was the mesh sheet, I believe -- I sold it some time ago.
