This was a lovely looking rug and made of a very nice and quality-feeling fabric.
Overview of performance
The fabric is really strong and it certainly kept the rain out. However, despite trying this on several horses in the yard we found it difficult to find a good fit – there is something about the shape over the lower and neck and withers that made it difficult to get it to sit comfortably.
Tamsin’s likes and dislikes
There was reluctance to use this rug as much as the others we had on test as the fit didn’t work well for our horses. It was a real shame as the stitching and fabric appear to be very good.
