Orican Freestyle Detach-A-Neck Combo

For Sale on eBay

Manufacturer: Weatherbeeta
Model: Orican Freestyle Detach-A-Neck Combo
Category: Horsewear

Purchase: I bought this blanket at The Paddock tack shop in Ledyard, CT, where I am an employee. I got an employee discount on this blanket, but the list price was around $170. I purchased it because I had just body clipped my horse, and it gets cold around here (e.g. often below freezing).

Likes: I absolutely love this blanket! Weatherbeeta just remodeled this blanket, and definitely made some improvements. The hood is quite long, so even if your horse is grazing, it still completely covers his neck. The velcro straps to fasten the neck have angled edges, instead of straight across, which makes it much easier to insert into the buckle/keeper. The hood attaches to the blanket with double velcro, which makes it easy for you to remove but not your horse, and eliminates the problem of broken zippers. The chest closure has buckles and snaps, with two rings to provide more adjust-ability for the snaps. Also, the color is lovely! My horse's color is sage green, and I'm in love with plaid!

Dislikes: The only thing I don't like about this wonderful blanket is the fact that the chest lacks velcro, but this hasn't been too big of an issue.

Quality: The quality of this blanket is evident from the moment you put it on your horse. It seems to fit almost all shapes of horses, from quarter horses to stocky thoroughbreds to lanky thoroughbreds. The fabric is a new ripstop design, almost a reed-woven texture, which has held up very well. It's definitely a very sturdy blanket, holding up to rough play from pasture mates.

Summary: This blanket is definitely a good investment, one that I expect to last for years to come. All the features are superb, and the company has put a lot of thought into the recent improvements. Also, the colors are getting much more fashionable, something we're all glad to hear! This is my favorite blanket of the many I have (this horse has 3 medium weights alone) and I can't wait to recommend it to my friends!
