        I use these for turnout on cold, rainy or snowy days. The fit was especially important to me as Morgans are sometimes hard to fit in the neck/chest area. The various adjustments on these allow for a much better fit. I was happy with the first one purchased so bought 2 more for my other 2 Morgans!

            The fit on this blanket is OUTSTANDING!! I can't believe I wasted my time trying other sheets - some cheaper (in more ways than one) and some more expensive. I had heard about the fit of the Schneider from another rider but dared to try some others only to be disappointed. Not any more!!

              • Q:

                How heavy is the blanket (weight-wise)? I am concerned about my big, elderly Friesian gelding being able to get up with a heavy blanket on.
                Thank you!

                  Hi Janet,
                  I bought one of these blankets for my coming 3 year old Appaloosa gelding. I got the 80" to allow for growth. I love the blanket. I don't know exactly how much it weights, but I would have to guess under 10 pounds. It is easy to throw over his back and stays put no matter how much running and playing he does. The only negative thing about it is the leg straps do not stay in place where I have them adjusted. They keep getting longer so I have to readjust them quite often. But, maybe you won't have that problem with your older horse. Good luck. Donna Barcomb

                  The blanket weights about 9 pounds.

                  I purchased it for my 24 yr old gelding. It's got a little weight to the blanket but nothing to hinder his ability to get around. Nice sheet with no fill so good for rainy or chilly nights.

                  Hi Janet, I bought the sheet and it is very lightweight. I got it for my mare to wear alone in the warmer rainy season and for layering. She seems very comfy when she wears it and it is waterproof and windproof.

                  The blanket is used for my Appaloosa mare.  She is 15 hands and weighs 1000 pounds.  I love the blanket because it fits well ( and you have the ability to adjust it for a more custom fit for your horse).  It is sturdy, but not too heavy to handle.  It is a very nice looking blanket and gives my horse good coverage.  It also has a detachable hood, which can be purchased separately, so it gives plenty of options.  I have 6 horses and have purchased many different brands of blankets which have cost a lot more than the Storm Shield, but I have to admit my favorite is the Storm Shield.

                Would this blanket work for narrow chested horses? My mare has narrow shoulders and most blankets rub or let water in.

                  We would suggest the VTEK.
                  The VTek will cover the shoulders better and come up higher so it should close the front end in more.

                  I have a fairly narrow-chested QH and this blanket works awesome for her. The best part about Schneider's blankets is the adjusta-fit system where you can adjust the chest part. I chose the sheet because I strictly just wanted protection from the rain. My horse lives outside with just a roof over her head, she has always been dry underneath when I brought her in to ride. I live in rainy southern Oregon and we do occasionally get snow. Hope this helps.

                  Depending on how narrow her chest is yes...there is the ability to snug it up with the Velcro adjustments at the neck/shoulders...I have both broad and narrow chested horses in this blanket...hope it helps...

              How to Measure for a Horse Blanket
              • For best fit, stand horse squarely.
              • Measure from center of chest to edge of tail.
              • Take care to measure along the widest part of the shoulder and hindquarters.
              • The blanket measurement result is the blanket size.
              • If your measurement is in between sizes, round up to the next blanket size. Example: 73" = Size 74.
