How to Measure Your Horse Properly for a Blanket or Sheet

                                   

                                                        How to Measure Your Horse Properly for a Blanket or Sheet

 

How to Measure for a Blanket: For best fit, stand horse squarely. Measure from center of chest to edge of tail. Take care to measure along the widest part of the shoulder and hindquarters. The blanket measurement result is the blanket size. If an odd number, round up to the next even number - 73" = 74".

Fitting the Blanket: When initially trying the blanket for fit, please use a sheet underneath to keep it clean in the event it needs to be exchanged. In cold weather it's natural to want to close up the neck; but please remember that horses spend the majority of their time with their heads down. A blanket that is too high pulls forward every time the horse lowers his head and can cause rubbing at the shoulders and at the base and top of the wither. Make sure the front is sufficiently low and roomy so the horse can put his head down freely.
