How Do I Know Which Horse Blankets To Shop For?

Okay, so let's start with this. You need to consider more than just one reason which most people do and that is it's cold and you want your horse warm. With that said there are several factors to consider here that are so important. First, will your horse be wearing a blanket all day while your at work or is someone scheduled to take off the blanket during the day for you. The other factor is when the blanket is taken off is the weather going to be nice enough for your horse not to catch a cold chill? Is your horse stabled inside a barn at night and turned out during the day? All good scenarios. It might be best to shop for an All-Around Blanket if that is the case. Second, is your horse going to be in a stable all winter with controlled climate? If so this is an easy solution for you. Shop for a horse blanket that is designed for a certain temperature range like a 200g Stable Blanket. One that doesn't need to be waterproof but can breath and keep your horse comfortable for long periods of times. Third, will your horse be standing out in the rain? If your horse is going to be outside with very little shelter, you are definitely going to be needing a rain sheet for your horse or waterproof horse blanket.

3 Do's & Don'ts when Shopping for Horse Blankets

A few tips to pin point when shopping for Horse Blankets:

1. Don't assume a waterproof horse blanket is the best solution for your turnout horse. Do shop for Breathable, Waterproof and Durable.
2. Don't just shop for best price. Do shop for a blanket that you want to last on your horse for years. The higher the # denier, the stronger the outside of your blanket will be.
3. Don't overlook the fact that your horse will lay down, roll, and buck. Do make sure your horse blanket has many heavy duty secure straps and buckles for longevity.
