Horse Blankets

Step 1: Measure your horse to find the right size.

 

Measure from Chest to Tail - from the centre of the chest to the furthest rear point of the rump measuring along the side of the horse.

 

Refer to the Universal Size Chart below to determine the right size blanket based on your horse’s measurement.

Step 2: Check that your rug/blanket fits.

 

Your horse’s blanket fits when the chest closure is secured on approximately the middle adjustment and the top of the tail flap falls at the top of the tail.

 

Step 3: Fasten and adjust the straps.

a. Chest Straps - fasten chest straps so fabric overlaps at the chest and the Freestyle Dart sits at the front of the shoulder point.

b. Leg Straps - pass the left leg strap between the hind legs and fasten to the left hand dee-ring. Cross the right leg strap through the left leg strap and fasten to the right hand dee-ring. Ensure the leg straps are adjusted so you can only fit a hand’s width between each leg strap and each of your horse’s thighs.

c. Surcingles - fasten belly surcingles and adjust straps to allow a hand’s width between straps and belly.

 

That’s it!
