Official description: Swish Equestrian lightweight turnout with detachable neck
The Swish Equestrian lightweight turnout can be used with or without the detachable neck cover. It has a 1200D ripstop outer and 50g of filling. This rug has reflective strips on the front, rear and tail flap. It has large shoulder gussets, cross surcingles, a tail flap and removable/elasticated leg straps. Fully waterproof and breathable. It is designed to sit higher on the neck/shoulders to prevent the rug from slipping back and rubbing, we have had fantastic feedback about this design. This rug also comes with a handy storage bag.
Colours: Purple, royal blue or pink
Sizes: 4ft9in – 7ft6in
I really liked the colour of this rug and it looked well put together.
Overview of performance
Overall the rug felt of good quality – the seams were well stitched and it felt robust. The fastenings were also of good quality and very secure. We didn’t see any evidence of the rug slipping back on the horse who wore it.
Tamsin’s likes and dislikes
We particularly liked the reflective strips as we used this rug most during changing seasons – we found that they were helpful for locating horses in the field as the nights close in and dusk gets earlier.
