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

        I absolutely love this blanket. I had purchased 2 of these in the past, and although I had a nice selection of other blankets to use, these became my "go to" blankets. We have one other horse, and we really needed one for him, also. They are great for rainy, cold days, although I don't leave my guys out in driving rain all day. Not sure how they would handle that. My one disappointment with this blanket is that there was not the nice tag inside that usually comes with the Schneider's blankets, for the horse's name. I have 3 horses with red blankets (due to lack of color options). Fortunately my other two have names. Schneider's, please put those tags back!

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

        I purchased this blanket after always using Rambo's, since the horse is the stockiest TB I have ever seen! The only blanket I found that didn't rub his shoulders raw was a Rambo, but he needed a new blanket and I didn't want to pay for a new Rambo. So, I tried this blanket and so far, so good! It's warm, waterproof, and fits him well! I did order one size bigger to be sure that it was big enough.

        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.
