Weatherbeeta’s lightweight exercise sheet is 100% waterproof. It features a polycotton lining, rump darts and fillet string.

Available in green with navy binding in 4ft – 5ft sizes. Cost around £30.

Tester’s comments

“This exercise sheet has become an invaluable addition to my horse’s wardrobe. It is great to be able to ride in wet weather and not have to worry about rugging up a wet horse afterwards,” says tester, Carol Phillips.

“It is lightweight so it does get blown about on windy days, although the fillet string prevents it from moving around too much. I would also prefer the darts to be more generous as it doesn’t quite follow the contour of my horse’s hindquarters as closely as I would like.

“On the plus side, it has kept my horse dry in wet weather and the sheet is deep enough to be used with my dressage saddle and my girth fits through the loops without rubbing.

“This rug is ideal for riders who have to exercise in wet weather, but don’t want their horse to get hot and sweaty.”
