    Comments about StormShield® V-Free® Versatility Turnout Sheet:

    I use this as a light turnout sheet in North Florida. We have not gotten much cold weather yet so it is great for those days where you just want a little something to protect from the wind and offer some warmth. My horse isn't clipped this year or he'd probably be in this sheet more.
    I use it on my quarter horse cross who i thought was impossible to fit. He has broad shoulders and everything I tried on him ended up giving him shoulder rubs. I love the way this one fits him and that it has the adjustability through the shoulders. I'll probably end up buying him a mid weight blanket with the V-free system as well, but for now I got a blanket liner to put under the sheet if it ever gets colder than 40 in Florida!
    I also love that is a closed front, I didn't know how I'd feed but I actually think it helps prevent the shoulder rubbing, and we usually keep the front buckled and slide blankets over there heads anyway so this just saves us that step.
    I highly recommend this to anyone, but especially those with horses that have broad shoulders.

      Comments about StormShield® V-Free® Versatility Surcingle Turnout Blanket - X-Midweight:

      Love this blanket. The fit is great, especially with the adjustable shoulders. The weight is perfect for the mild Southern Arizona winters, but works fabulously over a sheet when it does dip down. My horse is usually clipped and this blanket stays in place and keeps him warm. I haven't had this blanket long enough to attest to durability, but all of my other blankets from Schneiders have always held up for quite a few seasons, even with mouthy neighbors!

            Q:

            Hi,
            Is the wickability feature comparable to the bucas stay-dry fabric, so you can put the blanket on a wet (sweaty) horse?
            Thank you in advance!
            Asked on 11/10/2016 by Kelly from Belgium

              A:

              The Versatility does not have wicking material in it.
              If you likes this fit the Regulators #16004, 16003, 16002 have the Tekno Dri in them or if you want something lighter she can go with a Tekno Fleece turnout #15003
              Both will wick away moisture.
              We don't' recommend any blanket being put on an overly hot or sweaty horse. We do recommend some cool out time under a polar fleece or wool cooler first.

              This is a sheet with no fill. There is a warmth guide on the item it is located right of the review tab.

          How to Measure for a Horse Blanket:

          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.
