Blankets Explained


Blankets are primarily used to shield horses from varying weather conditions and climates. Providing your horse with the best fit, comfort and protection is vital for your peace of mind. The right blanket choice will help to regulate your horse’s body temperature and maintain a healthy condition.

 There are 5 main types of blankets available.

 1. Turnout Blankets

Using a turnout blanket will help protect your horse from harsh weather conditions such as the cold, rain, wind and snow keeping them warm and dry. There are various levels of protection and warmth available in a turnout blanket and you should consider you own horses living and grazing conditions, your clipping routine, weight, age and exercise level before purchasing a blanket.

2. Stable Blankets

Horses that are clipped and living indoors will benefit from a stable blanket that will provide warmth to a horse that is unable to move around freely to generate their own body heat during colder months. Lighter weight stable blankets can also be used to help keep horses clean that mainly live inside all year round. To view the Stable Range click here

3. Mesh Sheets

Mesh sheets will help prevent horses from becoming irritated by flies and midges in the summer months when they are spending more time outdoors allowing them to relax and enjoy their grazing.

4. Sheets

Horses that are turned out in warmer weather will benefit from a summer sheet with UV protection. With a high cotton content they are more naturally breathable to keep your horse cool in the sun and they also help to prevent coat fading, keeping it clean and dust free.
