When using a blanket or sheet it is critical to monitor the fluctuating climate and temperatures even with a blanket that is waterproof and breathable. The wicking properties of a breathable blanket are designed to wick away normal body heat, when a blanket is too heavy the heat and moisture cannot be wicked away fast enough causing your horse to sweat. The temperature and the length of your horse’s coat will determine what weight of blanket you should use. For this reason, most people who choose to blanket horses have several articles of horse clothing that offer varying levels of warmth. Measuring Instructions – Using a flexible measuring tape, measure from the center of the horse’s chest around the widest part of the shoulder continuing on around the widest part of the hindquarters to the center of the tail. This measurement will help you determine the size blanket you need.
Washing Instructions – It is recommended that Tough1® blankets be hand washed in cool water using mild detergent. This may extend the life of the waterproof properties of the blanket.
If washing in a machine, it is recommended that a commercial grade machine with cold water and mild detergent be used. Remove as much loose hair and dirt as possible before washing. This will make it easier for the machine to effectively clean the blanket. Straps should be adjusted to their shortest length or removed, if possible, when machine washing.
If a spot remover is to be used, test on an inconspicuous area.
Blanket should be hung and allowed to air dry.
Horses Turned Outside without Shelter - Turnout Sheet and Blanket materials are waterproof and designed to keep your horse dry, however if your horse is turned out in a field without a run in shed or shelter during prolonged rain or heavy downpours your horse may still get wet especially in the neck and tail areas.
When selecting a blanket ensure to take into account your horse’s behavior, environment or other horses that may be turned out with your horse. The lower the denier number the less strength the material has. 420 Denier and 600 Denier are not recommended for horses that bite, chew or rub on blankets or for horses turned out with a companion or in a group.
Always ensure your horse’s blanket is properly fitted and all straps are adjusted correctly, if a blanket is too tight or too loose, straps may break and material may tear. For younger horses or horses turned out with a companion or in groups, it is recommended to purchase 1200 Denier or 1680 Denier material as these are stronger materials and are less likely to tear.
Certain types of fencing such as barbwire or foreign objects such as nails will easily tear any blanket no matter what the denier, always inspect the area in which your horse is kept to remove any nails or jagged fencing that may cause damage. There are no horse blankets that are guaranteed to not rip or tear.

Why did you choose this?
My horse has high withers. The Euro cut blankets put pressure on him and the V-free cut allows a lot of rain in. Can you comment how this blanket fits over high withers? In addition, I see the 1680D and the 1200D are structured differently around the neck and withers; is there any difference between the two fits for high-withered horses? And finally, my horses are outside and eat from the ground; do these blankets allow the horse to reach down without putting pressure on the underside of the neck? Thank you in advance for your answers.
Best Answer: I have the 1680 (wanted the toughest material) on my horse with high withers. I snug up the neck so that the blanket stays in front of the withers, not on, not behind. It's great! No shoulder rubs, no pressure. You loose a little mane but by summer you can't tell. On the front, I buckle to the furthest D on the top and the nearer one on the bottom to give her more space when she lies down. She does not seem to have any trouble grazing. The blanket doesn't shift either. 3 others in the barn have bought the same blanket for all types of horses. They love it too.
I'm looking to purchase winter blankets for my horses, but I'm not sure what denier to go with. We live in the northeast, Central New York and get down to -30 degrees sometimes in the winter months. Can you suggest which blanket to go with?
Best Answer: The Denier of the blanket determines the outer strength of the blanket.
35-50 degrees-You would use a light weight blanket. 25-35 degrees-You would use a Medium weight blanket. 10-25 degrees-You would use a Heavy weight blanket.
My horse is 76" do I size up or do I size down?
Best Answer: My horse wore an 80 before the new sizing was popular. The 78 fits perfectly. Her issue was always in the shoulder. Because I can adjust the neck, the blanket does not slide back and rub. And she is a big-bodied warmblood. This blanket is the BEST I've ever bought. She wore it all winter and when it came back from the cleaners it looked like new. The body type of your horse could determine whether you have to go up or down in size.
Can you tell me what the fill/weight is on this 1680D blanket? Thanks
Best Answer: From what I have read, these blankets have a 350 gram poly fill. They are very heavy duty--I bought one for one of my horses last year, and almost immediately bought a second one for my other horse, since I felt sorry for him for having a substandard blanket in comparison. :)
I would buy this blanket again, no questions asked.
what size would be right for an average size paint (6 years old)?
Best Answer: Take the time to measure the horse! I believe it's from the center of the chest, along the side to the middle of the tail. I have two horses, roughly the same height but different builds and what fits one won't fit the other well. A simple sewing measuring tape will work or a piece of string and a yard stick will also do the trick. Round up to the nearest size. Good luck
Average Arabian size? Any suggestions?
Best Answer: Measuring Instructions â€“ Using a flexible measuring tape, measure from the center of the horseâ€™s chest around the widest part of the shoulder continuing on around the widest part of the hindquarters to the center of the tail. This measurement will help you determine the size blanket you need.
I need 75 or 78 in Blue, any left in stock?
Best Answer: Unfortunately we currently have the size 78 only left in purple.
Is this light medium or heavy weight for warmth?
Best Answer: This would be considered a Medium weight blanket.
I'm trying to fit a saddlebred with a neckline of 58 inches around at the shoulder. Will this fit?
Best Answer: I cannot guarantee this item will fit as every horse is different I would measure your horse.
1) Stand your horse square. 2) Place your measuring tape at the center of the chest. 3) Measure from the middle of the chest to the center of the tail one side. and that is the horse's blanket size.
