It is important to make sure that you buy the correct size rug for your horse/pony to ensure that it stays in place and is a comfortable fit. Measure your horse/pony from the centre of its chest, along its body to the rear of its quarters, as indicated. See diagram and sizes chart.
• Belly surcingles should be adjusted to allow a hand width between straps and belly.
• Your hand should fit comfortably between the neck and shoulder areas and the blanket. If not, the blanket could cause discomfort and rubbing.
• If the blanket extends beyond the top of the tail, the blanket may be too big. If the blanket does not reach the top of the tail, the blanket may be too small. However, examine the neck and shoulder area for fit before making a decision to go for a different size.
• Make sure that the tail is lifted over the filet strap and the strap is securely attached on both sides. This will prevent the blanket from blowing forward. Where possible pull the tail through the strapping on the inside of the tail flap.
