    Love this Turnout Blanket!

    I love this fit of this Turnout! Fits my stocky Quarter Horse perfectly! My Arabian is hard to fit a blanket too this blanket is perfect for him. I love Teckno Fleece it keeps both boys warm on cold days/nights and when we have big temperature changes they don't sweat.

    Very Warm and Fits Well

    This blanket fit my horse nicely. It is very warm and only is being used on the coldest of days.

    Excellent fit and durability

    I specifically selected the closed-front style for my stallion, who can be harder on blankets than some of my other horses. I wanted to eliminate extra snaps/closures that could catch on fence boards or break if he bumped his chest on the wall.

    Great Turnout Blanket

    5

    The closed front on this blanket is the perfect solution for a horse like my gelding who has grabbed hold of and torn apart the buckle closures on 3 other blankets. I bought this same blanket for my mare almost 10 years ago and it's still in perfect condition, so I decided to buy one for my destructive gelding, and I'm happy to say that he has not even tried to damage it.

    Love this blanket for the changing weather we have been having. My only problem is my mare has a big shoulder & I can't seem to get this blanket to fit right around her shoulder even with the adjust-fit. But it gets the job done! Has held up very well. My mare gets turned out daily in a herd of at least 15 mares & its still going strong. I believe this is the second winter I have had this blanket as well.

    Great turnout sheet!

    This sheet does well for my horse to keep him dry when the weather is too warm for a blanket, but he needs something for the cold rain.

    I really like this turnout blanket!

    5

    My horse has a stall with pasture access so he needs a turnout that is waterproof, and this one is. He also sweats easily in our temperate pacific northwest climate, even though he is trace clipped. The Tekno Fleece is great, it wicks sweat away and his coat is never wet. The temps pushed up into the low 50's last week, and I was afraid the blanket and he would be wet, but all was dry. I have been through several other brands of turnouts without fill and he still sweats and was wet, so turnouts that have Tekno Fleece is the only blanket for us. I now have 2 for him. This model seems to run a little small in length but full in the shoulders, so I can't adjust to cover all of his hind end, but it's really fine as the tail flap does the job there. Can't comment on durability as we only have it a short time, but if it's anything like other Schneider products it should be great.

    finally a blanket that fits my Andalusian

    The blanket fits really well but is very warm for medium fill. I like the closed front and the blanket doesn't rub the withers.

    Do you have a video on how to put on the closed front turnout blanket?

    Antoinette

    Unfortunately, we do not. The blanket will easily slip over the head and then is pulled back until the body is covered. Center the blanket on the horse, hook up the surcingle straps and then the leg straps.

    Cheri

    When the front is sewn closed, at what position is that, if it had been buckled? That takes up room and I am deciding between a 72 and a 74.....

    Morganhrs

    Not sure, but my horse takes size 78 weather it buckles at the chest or u have to put it over his head. Sorry, hope this helps. I would get whatever size your horse normally wears. Sent from my iPhone

    intelligentequine

    To me it depends on how deep your horse ties in at the shoulder. It fits my cutters, arabs and fox trotters really well, but not my narrow thoroughbred. I would say center hook, but haven't really compared it that way before. I love the front closure. If you measure center of chest to back of where you would want the blanket to end, it is very true to size. Hope that helps!

    js125

    I would say it's at its smallest position, so I would size up. Sent from my T-Mobile 4G LTE Device Date:02/27/2017 11:20 AM (GMT-06:00)

    Lori I purchased the same size blanket I always had. I love these!

    lorilmcpherson

    A closed front still measures properly ,order as you would any blanket, in doubt go next size up.

    carter.david177

    The buckles are measured when the buckles are at the middle whole. So that is how this one would measure with the closed front. If you are nervous about the front closer we would suggest going with the New Briton which is the same fit but has the open front.

    Customer Service

    It fits loose and the idea is that you tighten with the velcro on the shoulders. This setup didn't work for me. As soon as the velcro got dirty, it was useless. I went back to buckles on the chest.

    aaamadre

    Hi, Is the wickability feature comparable to the bucas stay-dry fabric, so you can put the blanket on a wet (sweaty) horse? Thank you in advance!

    Kelly

    Yes, I put mine on my horse all the time after exercising.    

    richardt

    The Versatility does not have wicking material in it. If you likes this fit the Regulators #16004, 16003, 16002 have the Tekno Dri in them or if you want something lighter she can go with a Tekno Fleece turnout #15003 Both will wick away moisture. We don't' recommend any blanket being put on an overly hot or sweaty horse. We do recommend some cool out time under a polar fleece or wool cooler first.

    Customer Service

    What fill is this blanket? What climate/temperature is it best suited for? Thanks!

    Brooke

    This is a sheet with no fill. There is a warmth guide on the item it is located right of the review tab.
