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, measure from the center of chest around side of the body to the point of the horse's rump just before the tail. If you horse ends up measuring between sizes always round up to the next size to ensure full coverage.

Caring For Your Horse’s Blanket

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 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.

Love it
Keeps my older, 23, OTTB warm even when temps are below zero. Breathes so when temps bounce back up he doesn't sweat underneath

Runs big
Beware this blanket runs big, my boy measures 76 so I was advised to round up to a 78. It was huge on him, we could live with the rug running to long in the body but the neck piece was so big that it had a fold/crease half way up his neck.
Super heavy too, if you are a little person with a big horse it could be a little challenging.

Well made blanket good value
Great Blanket. Heavyweight and waterproof. Stitching is high quality and the straps and buckles are substantial. I always buy shires blankets and have always been happy with them. They hold up year after year.

Stormcheeta Combo Blanket 400 g
I really like this blanket. For the price, the weight is very heavy. The quality of this blanket is very high. My horse gets cold very easily. He seems to appreciate it. So far it has not gotten damaged or ripped during turnout. I have washed it once at the local laundry mat in a large machine, and it came out very well.

Awesome blanket!
This is the second time I've purchased this blanket. I absolutely love it! My horse lives outside 24/7 and I appreciate the coverage this blanket provides him. I know it keeps him warm and dry even on the coldest, wettest nights. This design is slightly different then when I bought his first Stormcheeta 5 years ago but I love it! The neck is cozier and the reflective strips are nice.

Wish it would've fit
Not only was this blanket beautiful but it also fit my x-large horse with room to spare. I was very happy that even the neck had ample room. Unfortunately, I had to return it because the only place it didn't fit was how high the buckles were at the chest. My horse's neck ties into his chest a little lower so it was uncomfortable for him to put his head to the ground. Looked like a well made blanket, with strong clips and outer shell.

Shires Stormcheeta Combo Heavy Blanket
I like the durability of this blanket. I have a horse that rolls and is very rough on blankets and this weight and outer blanket material are very durable. Highly recommend this blanket for keeping wetness and snow off while keeping the horse dry and warm.

Excellent blanket
The quality, price and magazine description of this blanket was fantastic, I would highly recommend this blanket to anyone who needs a heavy weight blanket for a horse with minimal hair. I recently brought a horse home from Texas to northern Wisconsin and we had a very early cold snap so I found this blanket and my new gelding loves it and has not been cold since!

Tracy P on Feb 19, 2018
I bought one that is a size 84 and was too large for my draft horse, so I just ordered a size 81. I think they are running large because my guy usually wears a size 84. I'm keeping the larger blanket because it can be adjusted to fit and I can use it as a back up blanket. The quality of this blanket is really nice, I love it and would definitely buy again and again.

I purchase the Shire brand blankets because they are durable and very well made. I have 14 horses and most of them wear Shire blankets. They hold up well.

I chose this blanket because of the high denier and the combo neck. I have purchased many blankets from Shires and find they are the best quality.

Is this blanket suitable for 0-10 degrees Fahrenheit? or would I need a heavier one?
Jada Stone on Apr 17, 2018
BEST ANSWER: I have one horse that it totally fine with just this blanket at lower temps. But my other horse needs an additional stable sheet underneath during very cold weather. Overall, it's a great blanket for winter in the Northeast.
how strong is this blanket from rips?
kiirkiir on Jan 29, 2015
BEST ANSWER: These are definitely made for horses that are hard on their blankets. My boy is notorious for ripping his on fences and rough horse play out in the field. This is the only blanket that survived him all last season and so far we are halfway through the second and no rips. I also love how high the neck cover comes up and STAYS put. Unlike other brands that shimmy down the neck, this stays where it should. Hope this helps ??
I have a 18h draft horse would your 87 fit him?
tiffany t on Sep 18, 2016
BEST ANSWER: I had a horse who fit sizes 80 to 84. I chose the Shire blanket that was the smaller of this size range and it had plenty of room. My friends horse is slightly bigger, she always gets 84's and his shire blanket had loads of room. Just guessing that an 87 should be plenty well sized if the measurements the company gives are close to your horses measurements because they specifically seem to allow for bulkier bodies of the larger horses.
i have a thoughbred he usually wears a 78 your reviews say this blanket runs big . what is your suggestion?
tracy t on Dec 21, 2014
BEST ANSWER: I got a 75 and this horse is 15 1 or 2 and between 1000 and 1200 pounds It is fine after i adjusted the straps and comes down in the back to really cover him good and the thing doesn't fly up over his back when his butt is to the wind we have terrific wind here maybe this will help you decide for your guy
Is the hood attached?
A shopper on Nov 16, 2014
BEST ANSWER: Yes. It's a nice fit. It's slightly iridescent which I didn't expect but it really keeps water out and the horse warm. We have dropped to -8 lately.
Is the hood detachable?
A shopper on Nov 10, 2017
BEST ANSWER: No. My blanket hood is not detachable, which I actually like. Then I know it doesn't leak there. I really like this blanket although it really is quite heavy. I have a horse that gets cold easily. Living in Wisconsin, I sometimes even put another blanket on underneath.
Is this blanket a shiny material like it looks in the picture?
Hebejebe on Nov 13, 2014
BEST ANSWER: The material does have a more shiny surface than other turnout material. However, it does not glisten in the sun or anything. It is just a shinier polyester than other materials.
is there a sizing chart ?
