Ok so I am making my list of order to buy things to try for my horse as I have heard so many good things. First things first I am thinking of a blanket but not sure if I should go with mesh or fleece. Also saw the human lines. Thought it would be a good present for my boyfriend who works 7 days a week on a ranch. What are your experiences. Would you go for t shirt or pants first?

Love all the BOT products! As far as mesh or fleece blanket, I say it depends where you live. I live in TX so I have the mesh bc its never very cold. If it is super cold, you can throw another blanket over the mesh sheet. The human line is great also. I would go for the t-shirt first bc it will help neck, back, shoulders etc. I also wear the socks and my feet feel great even while standing all day. Good luck!

I chose the mesh becouse i felt the fleece would be to hot for our hot humid summers. My budget doesnt allow me to do both. :)
For the bf..i would go first with where he experienced the most discomfort..upper back/shoulders i would go with the shirt for example.

I ordered the 80" blanket and my gelding has a 81" EOUS winter blanket. To me it runs true to size and fits him perfectly. If you ever order a neck cover... those run in weird sizes. The same gelding in the 80" blanket has a 75 in the neck cover and it fits great.

I bought myself a tshirt just to see if I could feel them working. I honestly didn't but with that being said I'm pretty heathy and have no pain or soreness issues myself. I was a member of an association up here last year where you get so many points (dollars) to buy your own prize out of what they offer. I didn't need any junky tack or jackets and they offered BOT so I bought a mesh sheet and had to pay a bunch extra to get it. I thought it was kind of a joke but figured I can sell it and get actual cash for it to buy what I want.

I haven't splurged on any equine products yet, but I picked up a long sleeve shirt for myself. I carry all of my stress in my upper back and shoulders so I had some serious knots there and consistent pain, to the point that when I went to get a massage on more than 1 instance the masseuses were seriously shocked.
I feel a ton better when I wear the shirt on a nightly basis. It has been quite comfortable to wear in the cooler weather, and we keep the house set pretty chilly, propane prices and all, so I imagine I am generating some heat from it.
I will probably invest in the pants next winter - the heat generating aspect makes them pretty nice long johns, and no more expensive than Under Armour.
