Fitting Your Horse’s Blanket

The fit of your blanket is extremely important to the comfort of your horse. An improperly fitted blanket can cause rubbing and slippage. Stand your horse as square as possible, measure from the center of chest around side of the body to the point of the horse's rump just before the tail. If you horse ends up measuring between sizes always round up to the next size to ensure full coverage.

Caring For Your Horse’s Blanket

Washing Instructions – Remove excess dirt from your blanket with a brush and hose. Machine wash with cold water on Gentle cycle with mild detergent. Air Dry or Machine Dry/No Heat. 

Horses Turned Outside without Shelter - Turnout Sheet and Blanket materials are waterproof and designed to keep your horse dry, however if your horse is turned out in a field without a run in shed or shelter during prolonged rain or heavy downpours your horse may still get wet especially in the neck and tail areas. 

When using a blanket or sheet it is critical to monitor the fluctuating climate and temperatures even with a blanket that is waterproof and breathable. The wicking properties of a breathable blanket are designed to wick away normal body heat, when a blanket is too heavy the heat and moisture cannot be wicked away fast enough causing your horse to sweat. The temperature and the length of your horse’s coat will determine what weight of blanket you should use. For this reason, most people who choose to blanket horses have several articles of horse clothing that offer varying levels of warmth.  When selecting a blanket ensure to take into account your horse’s behavior, environment or other horses that may be turned out with your horse. The lower the denier number the less strength the material has. 420 Denier and 600 Denier are not recommended for horses that bite, chew or rub on blankets or for horses turned out with a companion or in a group.  Always ensure your horse’s blanket is properly fitted and all straps are adjusted correctly, if a blanket is too tight or too loose, straps may break and material may tear.  For younger horses or horses turned out with a companion or in groups, it is recommended to purchase 1200 Denier or 1680 Denier material as these are stronger materials and are less likely to tear.  Certain types of fencing such as barbwire or foreign objects such as nails will easily tear any blanket no matter what the denier, always inspect the area in which your horse is kept to remove any nails or jagged fencing that may cause damage.  There are no horse blankets that are guaranteed to not rip or tear.

Why did you choose this? Store
My horse has very high withers, so the standard neck blankets cause a dip in front of his withers. I am sure that is not comfortable! This looked like a quality heavy weight with a non-detachable neck, that will hopefully not rub his withers and will keep him warm.

does this blanket come with the neck cover as shown in the picture? It is not mentioned in the product summary.

Can you take the neck cover off?
Elizabeth B on Oct 12, 2014
Best Answer: no its attached at the top, I prefer this as sometimes if its windy the neck covers that are detachable flip over/up making the inside get wet if its raining
