Horseware Ireland Amigo
Lightweight Turnout Sheet
Manufacturer: Horseware Ireland Amigo
Model: Lightweight Turnout Sheet
Purchase: In August of 2008, we had a catastrophic barn fire. Although all the people and horses escaped without injury, we all needed to go shopping the replace what we had lost. I found this sheet through Dover Saddlery and I paid about $60-70 when it was on sale.
Likes: I really liked the fit of the sheet. My gelding (who is a Paint but built like a Quarter Horse) is very long and has wide-ish shoulders. Most of the blankets I get for him have an uncomfortable fit, but the Amigo was just perfect! Even with just a tail strap, it stayed right in place. Keep in mind that the chest straps don't adjust a lot, so measure your horse well before you buy. It's perfect for the muddy/rainy seasons when it's a little too warm for a heavier turnout, but too chilly (or muddy) to be naked. Also, if you have a black horse, the red/pumice looks fantastic!
Dislikes: My gelding is a little rough on his blankets, so he managed to rip it within the first ten times he wore it. However, he's successfully ripped every blanket I've gotten him at least once, so take that into consideration. The ONLY way to prevent tears in a blanket is to have a horse that won't rip it, unfortunately.
Quality: GREAT quality for the price if you put it on a fairly responsible horse. All the hardware is sturdy and durable and the straps are well-sewn. One of my biggest pet peeves is when the chest straps break, but the Amigo holds up fantastically! Great construction, great quality for a <$100 blanket.
Summary: Bottom line: You're definitely getting more than what you pay for, but destructive-horse owner beware. Your horse CAN rip this blanket, but for $70? I'll take my chances. AWESOME blanket, real Horseware Ireland quality, great colors, great fit. I give the Amigo Lightweight Turnout two thumbs up.
