The packaging and presentation of the Horseware Rambo rug I found to be simple, yet informative. I tested a 6’9″ blue, with white piping, heavyweight rug. It featured a detachable neck, v fastening chest  straps and a rip stop material.

A great design provided a quality rug which fit very well. The v fastening chest straps allowed a perfect amount of movement over my horses shoulders, sparing him of any rub marks. Previously, I have layered rugs over the winter to create extra warmth, but this rug was insulating enough to be used alone.

On lying down, the rug was easily penetrated by wet bedding and droppings. My preference would be for the rug to have a tougher exterior to prevent this.

 

The placing and design of the neck attachment points, made for a well positioned neck cover that stayed in place even through rolling and lying down. The neck cover was also a great length and had two strong velcro fastenings.

I was also pleased with the depth of the rug, which accommodated the deep barrel of my horse well.

I would definitely recommend the rug to a friend. Points that the rug has in its favour outweigh any negatives. It provided all that you could wish for from a rug and at a suitable price.
