Unfortunately this rug arrived too late to be photographed and as it was just prior to the first lockdown, we weren’t able to rearrange this. At first I thought it was was expensive and at first glance it didn’t seem that different to some of the others we had on test that were less expensive.
Overview of performance
I was really impressed with the way the rug fitted – especially over the shoulders and the withers. We loved the fleece lining on the inside, so if you’re looking for a lightweight with a bit of extra warmth this is a great option. The fastenings were fantastic – everything fitted exactly as it should, they were easy to use and they kept working day after day, which was great.
Tamsin’s likes and dislikes
We really liked the elasticated quarter straps – previously we’ve had adjustable ones with buckles that can rub, but these were soft and well designed so you can easily get the right fit and maintain a good level of comfort.
I would definitely recommend this lightweight turnout – it’s so well designed.
