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, and measure from the center of chest around side of the body to the point of the horse's rump just before the tail. If your 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, be sure 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 make sure 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, so 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.

These fit well and wear like iron!!!!
Jennifer S on Oct 16, 2015
Where I live, it gets to be -30 - -40 sometimes and really needing a warm blanket as I have 2 show horses, 1 31 year old, and 1 yearling. For the past 3 years, I have been having a lot of trouble keeping my horses warm, espescially the 31 year old. Will this balnket keep them warm the whole winter? Thank you.
A shopper on Aug 3, 2015
Best Answer: Hi there! It doesn't get nearly as cold where I live but our average winter temps can go below zero....and often!!! I was really impressed with this blanket!!!! It's very well made and has better coverage than some other blankets I've had!!!!! It's quite thick as well with the 400g insulation!!! As cold as it gets where you are tho I'd consider double blanketing your horses....especially your 31 year old......and possibly even purchasing a hood for them as well!!! My horses are turned out only during the day tho and I usually leave them inside when temps reach down into the teens. This blanket is AWESOME tho and will continue to buy this brand as needed!!! LOVE IT!!!! Hope that helped!!!!!

Does this fit draft horses?
A shopper on Mar 15, 2017
Best Answer: It would probably fit a lighter-built draft, but this is not a wide or draft-specific blanket.

Does this have a detachable neck?
A shopper on Sep 18, 2016
Best Answer: Yes. You buy the neck warmer separately. This is an amazingly beautiful blanket and works extremely well.
