Fitting Your Horse’s Blanket
The fit of your blanket is extremely important to the comfort of your horse. An improperly fitted blanket can cause rubbing and slippage. Stand your horse as square as possible, and measure from the center of chest around side of the body to the point of the horse's rump just before the tail. If your horse ends up measuring between sizes, always round up to the next size to ensure full coverage.

Washing Instructions:
Remove excess dirt from your blanket with a brush and hose. Machine wash with cold water on gentle cycle with mild detergent. Air dry or machine dry/no heat.

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 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.

When selecting a blanket, be sure 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 make sure 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, so 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.

Beautiful quality blanket! Love it!
Initially bought this blanket as it was on a special sale for nearly half price! I love the red and it has an iridescent, rich look. My horse looks like royalty in it. Most importantly it appears to be exceptional quality materials and fits him well. Time will tell how well it holds up, but I feel like it will withstand the elements with no problem. It is keeping him warm and cozy during this cold spell we are having. Nicest blanket I have ever purchased and I am very pleased! Nothing about it I donâ??t like.

Doesn't seem to be 400g of fill
I bought this blanket for our very cold winters in Idaho. It is a great, durable blanket but does not seem like it's 400g, which is why I only gave it 3 stars. If this were advertised as a 250 g blanket I would've given it 5 stars.

Great blanket for a great price!
I have been very pleased with this blanket. I needed a heavy-weight blanket at a reasonable price and this blanket has more than met my expectations. My horse has a thicker neck than most his size and finding a blanket that doesn't rub the bottom of his neck when he is grazing has been a challenge in the past. This blanket has wonderfully adjustable buckles on the front and I was able to adjust the fit easily so that it was perfect for him. As an added bonus the red blanket becomes blue/purple depending on the angle at which you view it. I would definitely recommend this blanket and this brand!

Love this Shires Blankets
These blankets are nearly indestructible. I'm using blankets I used last year and they look brand new AND the belly straps stay hooked. I have 2 of each weight so when one is at the cleaners, I have one to replace it with. Love this brand.

Elegant look, fits just right.
I just purchased an OTTB from Phoenix Arizona who was body clipped prior to coming to Utah in January cold winter weather. Poor horse was so cold. This blanket provides great warmth and protection from the weather. Not to mention how great the blue looks on a chestnut mare. I also purchased the neck piece to give her ultimate protection. I will be buying more for my other two horses.

Shires fit was best for my horse, no sliding to one side. I first bought the 200g blanket. Quality in all aspects of this blanket were excellent. My horse lives 24/7 outside and this blanket withstands - keeps him warm, dry and covered. Having to replace my old 400g blanket this year, I chose Shires because of it's quality, durability and fit.

After reading the comments of others who have purchased this t/o blanket, I decided to give it a try for my Clydesdale filly. We live in Minnesota where some winters can get mighty rugged. This t/o blanket just looks like it will do the job it was made for. I ordered the Navy color.

My little Arab mare freezes her little hiney off every winter, so I just wanted to get the thickest most durable blanket I could for her; and this blanket had good reviews.
AMANDA L on Oct 28, 2015
Purchased our 1st one in October 2014 and it is awesome very durable and fits great stays in place. Will continue to replace our worn out blankets with this shires stormcheeta blanket.

This is one of the best turnout blankets on the market that I have purchased. The Shire is tough and durable; plus a great price for a heavy weight blanket for the cold winters in western New York.

I needed a blanket to fit a warmblood and I heard that these blankets are suppose to fit them
Jane L on Mar 7, 2014
I chose this blanket because I have a demolition expert and needed a serious blanket that could take the abuse. I needed to replace the one I have and am anxious to receive my new choice.

How does this blanket fit Tennessee walking horses with their upright necks?
A shopper on Jan 7, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Unfortunately this item is only sized by exactly measuring your horses.
My horse measures 76 inches. Does this blanket run smaller, larger or true to size? He is between a 75 and 78. There is no 76.
Anthony M on Jun 18, 2015
BEST ANSWER: I believe they run pretty true to size. But because of fasteners you are able to adjust them to fit your horse by shortening or lengthening the straps. I believe the 75 should fit your 76 horse. Just to let you know brought 3 of these blankets for our 3 horses and we are very satisfied with the quality of the blankets. Also most blankets come in cheap plastic throw away holders. Shires comes in a reusable blanket holder with a handle that is Top quality to match their blankets. I hope I have been able to answer your questions.
How does this blanket fit on horses that have larger necks?
MrsWuwucachu on Jan 18, 2016
BEST ANSWER: I have a 4 1/2 year old Morgan with a large neck and this is adjustable in the front and fits him fine...sorry do not have measurements for his neck. I also ordered the hood that goes with it from another company and it fits
Does it have leg straps?
A shopper on Jan 4, 2016
BEST ANSWER: It does have leg straps. I've had this blanket on my thin skinned Thoroughbred for the last month...and it's awesome!! It's very well made and fits her beautifully. She's a bit distrunctive and the blanket has held up well to her pasture antics. I hope this helps! Cheers!
Although the pictures do not show it, the description says that this blanket has a non-detachable neck cover. Does this blanket have a neck cover?
A shopper on Aug 10, 2016
BEST ANSWER: The photo shows the blanket with no neck cover. The description of the product refers to Shires "Combo or Combi" blanket that comes with a sewn in, non removable neck cover.

This photo is not of a Shires combination blanket with a non-detachable neck cover. This blanket shows a standard neck. That description does not refer to this blanket. You can buy a neck cover to go with this blanket, but it would be another purchase. Shires neck covers that go with this blanket are 200 gram neck covers, in both colors.
I have an underweight rescue who gets cold easily. I live in southern Mississippi so I am not used to having to blanket. Would this be too much blanket for a horse in the south? We normally don't get below 20 but we get a lot of windy wet nasty days.
A shopper on Oct 27, 2015
BEST ANSWER: First of all this is a NICE blanket! It is durable, my horses were tough on them, scraping fences, biting at each others blanket, and rolling. They stayed warm too. Michigan winter was mild last year, but it got into the -10's wind chill. The blanket never absorbed water/sweat. My horses were very dry and toasty under the blanket whether it was freezing rain or piles of snow. I was also surprised how well they stayed in place. The blanket on my 'trimmer' Thoroughbred/Quarter cross I think I got too large, but even though I tightened it down as much as possible and it still looked loose it held its place and she had no issues. Sizes are True! Totally recommend this product, it's a tough one!
Can this blanket be attached to the hood that is sold separate?
Erin S on Sep 19, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Yes, i boyght one and it fits great
do you sell a neck cover for the shires stormcheeta blanket?
A shopper on Nov 6, 2014
BEST ANSWER: Unfortunately we do not have the neck cover available for that blanket.We do have item#E010490 Shires Stormcheeta Combo Blanket 400g with a 2000 denier that may interest you.
