Argyle Isn't Just For Socks Anymore

Horse Tack - Horse Blankets

Proving that argyle isn’t just for socks anymore, SmartPak™ is pleased to introduce their new exclusive collection of Argyle blankets. A follow up to their hugely successful SmartPink™ and SmartBlue™ Plaid line, the high performance Argyle collection features a Thinsulate Turnout and a Fleece Sheet. Not just your average argyle, the pattern in SmartPak’s Argyle collection was custom designed to include SmartPak’s signature galloping horse in the pattern.

“Our customers rely on us to be at the forefront of innovation, and also fashion, when it comes to products for their horses,” said Becky Minard founder and senior vp. “We were amazed at the great response to our SmartPink and SmartBlue plaid products, so we spent a lot of time working on new designs that would be just as trendy and fashionable, yet still sturdy and functional – after all they are horse blankets! We think the new Argyle line does just that.”

The Thinsulate Turnout features a tough 1200 Denier waterproof nylon outer with a 220 g fill equivalent and full nylon lining. It also features front gussets, two surcingles and elastic leg straps ensuring a great fit that stays put. The Fleece Sheet is made from 430g anti-pill fleece with a buckle front closure, one surcingle and a tail cord, allowing it to be used alone as a striking dress sheet, or as a blanket liner on cold, damp days.

Fans of SmartPak’s SmartPink Plaid blankets will love the new Argyle blankets in pink with black trim. And for those who preferred the SmartBlue Plaid, the Argyle blankets also come in blue with black trim. SmartPak Equine is now accepting orders for the Argyle line via its Web site at or by calling toll free at (800)-461-8898. Images are available upon request.
