Summer Rugs Horse
A summer blanket to help your horse stay cool and feel comfortable during hot summer days. It may sound strange, but that's exactly what a summer blanket does for your horse. This is due to the special cooling material by which these summer blankets are made. It keeps your horse at the right body temperature and remains fitted and relaxed.
Protection for your horse
A summer blanket has even more advantages. If your horse is in a sunny paddock with little natural shade, the blanket protects it from excessive UV radiation. Just like you, too much UV radiation is bad for your horse.
You also keep your horse cleaner and dust free with a summer blanket. This is useful, for example, if you have just washed your horse for a competition or inspection. You also protect its coat from, among other things, discolouration.
Finally, a summer blanket is suitable as an under blanket or trailer blanket. And where the cotton blanket cools in the warm sun, it also adds that extra bit of warmth that your horse will appreciate on cooler nights.
Please note that a summer blanket is not waterproof. The breathable cotton fabric allows for air and water, so when it's raining and your horse is in the paddock, you are better off choosing a rain blanket.
Which blanket size?
It is important for your horse that the blanket is properly fitted and has sufficient freedom to move. In our size chart, you can see which blanket fits your horse.
