Key Benefits
The Right Blanket for Your Senior Horse
The Right Blanket for Your Senior Horse
Our VTEK® Wither Relief fit prevents rubbing and relieves pressure on moderate to high withers. The upright shoulder and shape over the withers are designed to fit breeds with similar conformations as Thoroughbreds, Warmbloods, Appendix horses, or those with upright shoulder conformation. It includes an extended drop to cover a deeper heart girth, and they are shaped with darts at the hips to give a more contoured fit around the rump. Extends 6 to 8 inches onto the mane with fleece placed where the mane meets the sheet, further preventing rubbing. Memory Foam has been strategically incorporated into the wither, shoulder line, and hip panels, targeting areas where Senior horses commonly experience muscle loss and prominent bone structure. This additional layer of protection helps prevent rubs and sores, especially as older horses tend to lie down more frequently.

How to Measure a Horse for a Blanket

The most accurate and easiest way to determine your horse’s blanket size is to measure along the side of their body, from chest to tail. First, stand the horse square on a flat surface. Measure from the center of the chest, straight back to the very edge of the tail. Make sure to measure along the widest part of their shoulder and hindquarters. The number of inches measured in this way is your horse’s size. Look on the size chart for any Schneiders blanket for this number of inches to order your horse’s perfect size.
