        This blanket has held up longer than the amigo sheet that I bought at the same time so I'll definitely be replacing that sheet with one of these.
        This blanket didn't quite fit my guy around the shoulders but it was easily remedied by the adjustment straps. Now he wears it the majority of the winter with no rubs or sores, whether he's playing outside or just in his stall. I've even let people borrow it and they've loved it too

          • Q:

            I'm looking for a turnout sheet for the summer that is waterproof and without fill since my horse is on turnout 24/7. Do you have such a product?

              A:

              Our turnout sheets aren't designed for the summer heat. Air will not pass through the heavy nylon exterior, which will cause your horse to overheat. We have a large selection of summer mesh fly sheets that will keep your horse cool and protect from the flies and UV rays, but unfortunately, not waterproof.

            Does this blanket run true to size? My horse typically wears an 80 but her old blanket runs oversized so I had to go down a size (78)

              A:

              This is true to fit. You do have adjustable with the adjustable fit system on the shoulders. I would measure him from the center of the chest to the edge of the tall and go off that measurement. Different tack stores measure differently.

              Hi Anette,
              I have a PRE so, he is small.  72 is the blanket size.  I think this brand fits him very well.  I would say, true to size with just a little wiggle room bu,t not enough that it creates rubs etc. I have always had good luck with these blankets.   Very well made.  Give it a try. I hope it works for you.

              I have found that generally they are close. That said, I have a very large warmblood with a very deep chest and went a size larger, the fit was better. I have a smaller warmblood and found that he needed a size smaller then usual, as he's very young and a bit narrow right now. Schneider's has a good return policy, so I would try the "proper" size first. Also, just as an FYI, they really do stand by their guarantee. I had a blanket that got damaged and they were totally on top of replacing it!
