Comments about StormShield® V-Free® Versatility Bellyband Turnout Blanket - Heavyweight:

I purchased this for my 6YO Arab. He had been in a front-close style for the last 4 years, and would not leave the closures alone so in the course of time had ripped out a D ring and made some other small damages. (He's very oral and determined!) Even with his abuse, the old blanket needs only minor repairs and I am keeping it as a back up. (It is also from Schneider.) Switching to the over-head style will mean an even longer life for the new blanket. I love the bellyband style, also, for the added warmth and the added security on the horse.

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

    I love how secure the bellyband makes this blanket feel. It fits my horse like a glove and is holding up very well. He plays very rough and is in a group of rough playful geldings. He is turned out during the day and in a stall at night, he lays down both outside and in. The blanket doesn't seem to move or shift off to one side like some do.

        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.
