When first trying out the treatment, begin by laying the hindquarter's acupressure mat on, without the rug, to let your horse get used to the feeling of the acupressure rosettes. When your horse has become accustomed to the sensation your can use the complete rug. Start with a time period of 10-15 minutes to see how your horse reacts to the treatment. Increase the treatment periods gradually to 30-45 minutes when you see that the treatment is going well.
