HOW TO FIT YOUR HORSEWARE BLANKET

The fit of your blanket is extremely important to ensure the comfort of your horse and to prevent rubbing and blanket slippage. As horses of the same height at the wither come in a variety of shapes and sizes, it is useful to take certain measurements of your horse.

Using a soft measuring tape, measure from (A) at the center point of the chest, across the point of the shoulder and to the point (B) at the center of the tail. When you have the measurement, remove 10cm (4inches) and choose your horse’s size from the table below. Bear in mind that every horse is different and that this table is a guide only. We have many different styles to suit all shapes and sizes.

BLANKET WEIGHTS

Horseware® blankets come in a variety of weights. To make it easy, we’ve created this little temperature scale. It explains the weight available for each blanket and is located under each product section.

A turnout blanket acts as a waterproof insulator layer, helping to maintain condition in cold weather. However be aware that conditions may vary in a short time span. Always ensure your horse is comfortable at all times.

 
WHAT BLANKET SUITS MY HORSE?

For a deep shouldered horse with a deep neck and wide build you would need the XL cut, which is 20% deeper in the neck and sides to give them room, or you could choose the Optimo style blankets which have the ultimate freedom of movement.

For a deep shouldered, narrow horse you would be advised to have a Surefit design with V-Front closure.

For an average build of horse, go with a classic neck cut or if you prefer to give them more comfort again, a V-Front fit would suit.

For high withered narrow horses a Wug® helps to reduce the wither pressure.
For very narrow or young horses the Wug® or All-In-One design rugs are good choices to help fit their shape and prevent the rugs from slipping
