The fit of your blanket is extremely important to ensure the comfort of your horse and to prevent rubbing and blanket slippage. As horses of the same height at the wither come in a variety of shapes and sizes, it is useful to take certain measurements of your horse.
Using a soft measuring tape, measure from (A) at the center point of the chest, across the point of the shoulder and to the point (B) at the center of the tail.
When you have the measurement, remove 10cm (4inches) and choose your horse’s size from the table above.
Bear in mind that every horse is different and that this table is a guide only. We have many different styles to suit all shapes and sizes.
For an average build of horse you can go with a classic neck cut or, if you prefer to give them more comfort, the Surefit V-Front fit would suit nicely.
For a deep shouldered horse with a deep neck and wide build you would need the XL cut, which is 20% deeper in the neck and sides to give them room.
For a deep shouldered, narrow horse you would be advised to have a Surefit design with V-Front closure.
For high withered narrow horses a Wug® helps to reduce the wither pressure.
For very narrow or young horses the Wug® or All-In-One design rugs are good choices to help fit their shape and prevent the rugs from slipping.
