      I bought my first belly band blankets for an OTTB who was always cold. I love how they fit and keep a horse's belly clean! This purchase was for a WB mare who I want to be dry when she's turned out on rainy/snowy days.

        My horse's heavy turnout is from Schneider's and has had heavy use for 8+ years with no repairs needed! It looks great. When it was time to buy a new turnout sheet there was no question where to buy it. The perfect fit, great price and durability are unbeatable.

            • StormShield® V-Free® New Briton Bellyband Turnout Sheet

              Q:

              Would this blanket work on a Thoroughbred? My guy is 15.3 and wears a 76. He has about average withers but he does need room in the shoulder. I really like the belly band option and it doesn't come in any other rain sheet.

                Good Morning! This blanket is cut for the Quarter Horse. I don't think it will work well with for a Thorough Bred. The belly band is great though.

                We would suggest the VTek Marathon item 17126. This has a bellyband and is made to fit the thoroughbred body.

                I use mine on a thoroughbred as well. He measures 76" but I buy 78" because he is growing and filling out and this fits perfect.  I'm glad I didn't go smaller.  I also really like the belly band!

                I purchased a 74 for my 14 /3 hand Lusitano. He has a narrow shoulder - fits perfect. I also have this blanket for my 15/3 hand cream draft who is wide- both fit awesome.  The belly band is great- appears comfortable and secure- keeping horse both warm and dry. Would not purchase another blanket!

                Yes, it should work, I used it in my old rotund paint gelding. It was snug on his belly but it fit, plenty room around the shoulders.  My gelding was 15.3 as well but I used a size 78 to 80 for his blankets but he is pretty muscled.

              Q:

              I am looking for a spring turnout blanket that will keep my horse dry during the wet spring. Would this be too warm for her? I am more concerned with keeping her dry and not overheating with this on.

                This sheet has no insulation so provides no further warmth, it is simply a raincoat that will keep the horse dry.

            • Q:

              Which blanket thickness should I buy? Most of the time our winter temps range into the 20's-teens at night, but warm up into the 30's during the day, and sometimes higher than that.

                A:

                This depends on if your horse has a clipped or full coat. If clipped, a Heavyweight would be a good choice. If in full coat, a Midweight would be great. We recommend layering with an Adjusta-Fit® V-FREE® Nylon Blanket Liner #13031 for those especially cold nights.

            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.
