Riders International
Northwind Heavy Turnout Blanket

For Sale on eBay

Manufacturer: Riders International
Model: Northwind Heavy Turnout Blanket
Category: Horsewear

Purchase: I purchased this blanket to replace a turnout that had fallen apart - I had always used Weatherbeetas but to my surprise, it had serious tears after only one year of use so I had to replace it.

Likes: I love that this blanket is made from ballistic nylon which is superior to polyester. It fits well, and is extremely well made with quality hardware and an excellent design, for example the shoulder gussets are well-placed and it features the clip-and-dee chest fasteners which are so convenient in cold weather when your fingers are mummified in heavy gloves or mittens. It is also quite durable and very waterproof.

Dislikes: I don't like the tiny little wimpy tail flap. I'd like it to be longer and fuller and cover more of the horse's hindquarter. But the thing I am most disappointed in is that it rubbed twin spots on my horse's shoulders the first day he wore the blanket. The rub marks correspond exactly to the shoulder gusset seams on the inside of the blanket, which are rough and bumpy.

Quality: Excellent - well made, quality materials throughout except for those rough shoulder gusset seams.

Summary: This is a very nice blanket which could be a superlative blanket if it had a larger tail flap and if the gusset seams were smooth and didn't rub. As it is - I have to use it with a shoulder guard.
