I have one of these plus the quarter pad for my horse. i inherited it with him as he has a history of kissing spines. i use it with a stable rug on top to stop it slipping round (my horse is fairly rotund). i find it helps him and does seem to benefit from using it. i use it more regularly in the winter as it also helps keep his back warm.
would recommend to any one.
