BR Classic cotton rug
Price as reviewed:
This anatomically shaped BR Classic cotton rug is made of strong poly cotton (65% cotton, 35% polyester). The chest is reinforced with an additional layer of poly cotton. The rug features two adjustable front straps with quick release clips and Velcro. In addition, the rug has a double stitched back seam with binding and a fleece wither protector. It further benefits from shoulder gussets; cross surcingles with elastic insert straps that are both adjustable and detachable and adjustable, detachable, elastic leg straps. The rug features zinc hardware with a matt silver-coloured finish. It is machine washable at 30°C.
This rug looked smart, simple and well designed.
Overview of performance
This rug was smart enough to wear at a show and comfortable for the horses to wear in the stable. It stayed in place really well, but I did end up taking the elastic leg straps off as they were quite time consuming and weren’t needed.
Georgi’s likes and dislikes
I like that bedding never sticks to it. I also like the shoulder gussets as it gives the horses good movement in the stable, however, I did find that there are slightly too many straps and buckles.
I would recommend this — it’s on the more expensive side, but it’s good value as it works in the stable and as a smart rug to go to shows in. It is quite generous in size.
