Which Blanket Should I Use?

One of the most frequently asked questions we receive has to do with blanket weight. More specifically, horse owners want to know which weight blanket to use for certain temperatures. This is a tough question to answer because every horse is different, but we have put together a chart to serve as a starting point.

Keep in mind that this list does not take into consideration wind chill or precipitation, so you will need to factor those in to your decision. This is particularly important for horses who are clipped and/or live outside.

In general, you want to keep your horse warm, but you don't want him to sweat. It’s healthier for him to be a little cold than too hot because the evaporating sweat can make your horse even colder.
