Rain Rugs as a shield against the Elements

 

Rain blankets for horses are essential equipment to protect our beloved four-legged companions from the elements. Horses are naturally resilient animals, but heavy rain can lead to health issues, especially when they are exposed to moisture for extended periods. Rain blankets provide effective protection against wetness, keeping the horse dry, warm, and healthy.

Function:

The main function of a rain blanket is to shield the horse from rain and wetness. Rain can soak the fur and lower the horse's body temperature, potentially leading to hypothermia. A rain blanket repels water and keeps the horse dry, reducing the risk of colds and other health problems. Additionally, our rain blanket offers protection against wind and dirt, enhancing your horse's overall well-being.

Materials:

Our rain blankets are made of state-of-the-art water-repellent or waterproof materials. They are also durable and resilient, designed to withstand the demands of the stable or pasture. The breathable fabric allows moisture to escape from the inside, preventing your horse from overheating. Some of our rain blankets are equipped with fleece linings to provide additional warmth and comfort.

Fit:

A proper fit is crucial to ensure that the rain blanket sits correctly and fulfills its function. Rain blankets for horses should fit well around the shoulders, withers, and tail to prevent slipping. Our blankets feature leg straps and cross surcingles to help keep them in place. It is important to select the right size for your horse, as a blanket that is too small can be uncomfortable, while one that is too large may not provide adequate protection.

Tip: If your horse has a broader build or falls between two sizes, we recommend using our chest extender to ensure its natural range of motion is not restricted.

Care:

Caring for a rain blanket is essential to maintain its longevity. After each use, the blanket should be regularly cleaned to remove dirt, sweat, and hair. Our rain blankets can be machine-washed using specialized detergents. After prolonged use, we recommend reapplying a waterproof treatment to maintain their water-repellent properties.

In summary, rain blankets are indispensable equipment for protecting our horses from the effects of heavy rain. They offer protection against wetness, wind, and dirt, contributing to the health and well-being, especially of older and sick horses. With the right materials, proper fit, and adequate care, rain blankets can enable our horses to be outside even in inclement weather without compromising their health.
