30 patterned rugs you’ll want to kit your horse out in

  • Patterned horse rugs have become a real trend over the past few years – we’re not surprised as there are some designs that are really cute and others that are rather fun. There have been designs that have sold out in record time, while others have returned due to such popular demand. New designs are being released all the time so we can enjoy browsing online and kit our horses out with something new every year. Not only are they fun and super-cute, it’s also so much easier to find a pink-and-yellow-dinosaur-print rug among a sea of navy turnouts, so really they’re a no-brainer.

    Here’s a selection we think you’ll love – or maybe love to hate – either way they’re a feast for the eyes!

    Weatherbeeta Otter patterned rug

    How can you resist otters with raincoats, umbrellas and welly boots? This print is available as standard-neck or combo turnout, or a fleece cooler – and you can even get matching travel boots or a parka for your dog!
