    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.

      It has only been used a few times but seems like it will be great. I like the design at the shoulders - it doesn't pull at all.

          Not what I was expecting.

          By Horse mom of two.

          from Virginia

          Verified Buyer

          Pros

          • Good Fit
          • Good Value

          Cons

          • Not a true "lightweight"

          Best Uses

          • 24/7 Turnout
          • Changing Weather
          • Everyday Wear
          • Warm Weather

          Comments about StormShield® VTEK® Marathon Surcingle Turnout Blanket - Lightweight:

          This is definitely more of a sheet, and not a true lightweight. The fill is only along the top line, and chest (where the blanket is red). There is no fill at all down the sides of the sheet (where the blanket is black). While this may be ideal for some buyers, it was not what I was looking for, and unfortunately had to send it back. But I have no doubt the quality, value, fit, and durability are all up to Schneider standards!
