Rated 5 out of 5 by LE Very satisfied
With the other review to order down a size I was a bit hesitant to order the same size as my tough-1. That one is huge on my mare and this blanket fits like a dream. buckles straps seem sturdier and can cinch tighter then my tough-1 sheet. The rear legs buckles only have one buckle vs. the tough-1 but because this one fits tighter I am hopeful she will not get that area as dirty. It is nice to have two snaps by the legs to keep the back leg secure and open the buckle by her barrel. Ordered the plaid and it is very rich in color.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Katie Great Blanket for the price
I got this blanket about a month ago for my TB/paint gelding. The material is super strong and has held up great so far. Everything looks great on this blanket! Super deal for this price. The only thing wrong with it is it slips to the side just a little bit. It doesn't rub or anything, just slips. Overall a fantastic blanket. I wish it came in more masculine colors though!

Rated 3 out of 5 by bellas mom nice quality, but huge
I measured my mare at 69" and her 69" Tough-1 sheet fits perfect. This, however, is huge! Order a size down. The quality is good, but it's so big she poops on the sides.

I have 4 of these blankets purchased last year, and just purchased an extra this year. 3 of my horses are hard on blankets (the 4th is quiet)and they have stood up to just about everything, bites, rolling, fences, weather, rain, snow, sleet and they all have remained dry. The only thing I lost was a tail flap, and no doubt that was taken off by another horse. They are boarded with about 20 other horses, so there is much biting and playing going on all the time. I have big horses, and their bellies to stick out a bit, but they fit well enough to keep them all warm and dry. Would purchase again. I respray them with tent waterproof every year and they'll be good for what winter can throw at them next year.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Pony girl excellent blanky!!!
my horse ripped her last blanket in multiple places, so i was looking for a really tough blanket that i could afford. my horse has been wearing her blanket for about 2 or 3 weeks, i've seen both her and her pasturemates biting at the blanket and NO rippes or tears, the straps are staying on, even tho shes been laying down with it on, this is a great blanket i love it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Kaitlyn Excellent Blanket!!!
My retired TB gelding has many problems; One, he's a hard to fit horse with high withers, tiny shoulders, and a huge butt. Two, he's the WORST with his clothes! Tough-1? RIP! Defender? RIP! Kodiak? RIP! McCalistor? RIP! I was beginning to think I needed a $500 military-strength blanket after he went through 6 blankets in 3 months! Bought this Saxon when it was on a huge sale two winters ago. This is its third year. NOT. A. SCRATCH! VERY impressed with this blanket! The other geldings just can't seem to get a hold of it! Plus, no rubs! The other blankets had to have padding added they were rubbing so bad! I'd like to buy 100 of these, please.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Brnies Tomboy gelding tough!
I have a total brat of a 4 yr old gelding. He and his pasture mate run, kick, and bite all over one another. He's eaten the cheaper Tough-1 blanket off his stablemate (in ONE night!). This Saxon material is awesome. It holds up to tough biting and heavy rolling. Nothing has broken yet, no rips or tears either. He's now toward the end of his second winter in this blanket and it cleans up like new. 100% waterproof still as well. The best testament to a blanket's quality is a returning customer..and I am one. I don't think you can find better for this price. The material is the secret.

Rated 4 out of 5 by KD Nice blanket, but already ripped!
I have had this blanket less then a month and there is already a rip in it! Don't know how it happened since I have no barbed wire but I would have thought it would be a little tougher then that! It has kept my horse dry and warm though and I have not discovered any rub marks on her from wearing the blanket 24/7. Overall besides already having a rip in the blanket I think for the price it might be worth it. It does stay waterproof and she is nice and toasty feeling on those cold nights. But does get a mark down from me for ripping within the first 2 weeks!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Swansonspaints Tough & great fit!
Love the way this blanket fits both of my paint horses. I like how high it comes over the withers - no chance of it slipping back behind their tall withers. The sides hang down perfectly - just as shown in the picture. I ordered two 78's and I am on the 2nd to last hole on the chest, but with the hangover on the tail I would not want longer blanket. My gelding is super tough on blankets and one month later the blanket is going strong. Awesome blankets; reasonable price.

Rated 5 out of 5 by JESSICA Super Tough!
I have one of these thats 6 years old and doesn't have a scratch on it despite regular turnout with horses tough on blankets.
This is the blanket that turned me into a Saxon fan; it fits good, is super tough and I can go out when its 10 degrees out side and find my horses nice and warm but then I come back out when its 60 degrees and find not a drop of sweat.
This is the blanket I recommend to people who don't want to spend a lot but still want the quality of other pricey brands.

Rated 5 out of 5 by katie Love it!
I bought this to keep my horse dry and warm over the winter. It rained/snowed yesterday, and he was warm and dry under the blanket! For the price, this was the best buy. I only wish it came in better colors. For size, the last blanket I ordered ran big so I ordered a little smaller (he measures 80" I got a 78") and it fit him PERFECT.

Rated 5 out of 5 by GREAT Blanket Fabulouse Blanket
Got this blanket for my mule and I was worried it would be slipping around on her all the time, but that was not the case. She is turned out 24/7 and the blanket has had a rip on it yet. It keeps her nice and toasty. The only thing about this blanket is it runs a little bit. I measured my mule and I got 72" so I orderd a 72" blanket and it is a little too big on her and slides back past her withers. Other than that is a great product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Iowalady Great Valu$ for $$
Have 4 horses, last year I needed to start replacing old blankets. Ordered 2 of this blanket, they went on and weathered an Iowa winter with no tears, etc. My horses are stabled with about 50 horses (they have stalls @night). These blankets have stood up GREAT to other horses chewing, etc. Horses stayed dry and healthy all winter. These two blankets are laundered and will go back on those 2 horses this winter. I respray all my old blankets with heavy duty water repellant from Dicks...helps them last about 5 years before buying new. I bought the 3rd as backup, but didn't need it last year. It will go on one of my other geldings this year and I just ordered the 4th for the remaining gelding for this year. They aren't long around the belly, but I prefer this so horses don't trip on anything getting up or down. You won't waste your $$ with this blanket.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Delphi73099 Best Blanket Ever!
These blankets last forever. I have one that has been worn for 6 years now and all my other saxon blankets are on there 3rd year. I will never buy any other brand but Saxon because they last so long. I wash mine all the time they are still in great condition. I watch everyone else replace blankets every winter and mine look great! Cannot beat this blanket. They are awesome!

I have researched and owned other blankets but this one is the best, esspecially for the price. It is durable and holds up well. I use it on a 15.1 Tb and a 15.0 QH. Very happy with this blanket.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Cams2007 Like the Blanket
A lot of people in our barn use Saxon blankets and I love the product. They tend to last a long time. I bought mine last winter and it doesn't have a single tear. My horses are on 24/7 turnout too. Only thing I seemed to have an issue with is it tends to be a little narrow in the shoulders (on my QH qnd my Arab).

Rated 5 out of 5 by Koty91TX Good Blanket-Good Price
Bought one last year (74) for my foxtrotter and it fit great. Held up through our abnormally cold north Texas weather and stayed waterproof. I did make one alteration to the blanket. I removed the permanent leg straps and added a D-ring to attach elastic leg straps. I really dislike solid leg straps! Other than those, I like the blanket and just bought another one last week for my Arabian (72) and it is also sized correctly. My only wish would be for the blanket to have attachments for a neck cover and offer the neck cover for purchase. May be sewing on more D-rings :-) but you can't beat the price for the quality of this blanket. My old Saxon light-weight blanket(bought from State Line Tack when it was in PetSmart) is still going strong.

Rated 4 out of 5 by cz_zorro Durable Blanket!
I've used this blanket for 2 years and its still holding up strong. Its been through horse fights & bites with no rips, tears or wholes! Other brands rub the hair off of my Arab's shoulders but this blanket does not. Fits great, well worth the money.
