How To Measure Your Horse for a Blanket or Sheet
A poorly fitted blanket can cause discomfort for your horse from rubbing, and it could be dangerous if it’s so big it slips or he gets a foot caught in it. Measure your horse using the following guide to determine the correct size. Be aware that different manufacturers may have different sizing recommendations, so be sure to check the specific manufacturer’s website before ordering.
1. Using a cloth tape measure, have a friend hold the end of the tape in the center of your horse’s chest even with the widest part of his shoulder.
2. Bring the tape along one side of his body, and take the measurement at the widest part of his hindquarter where you expect the side of the blanket to end.
3. Turnouts are usually sized in 3-inch increments. If your horse is between sizes, choose the smaller size.
