Royal Caliber Medium Weight Turnout blanket

For Sale on eBay

Manufacturer: Equine Couture
Model: Royal Caliber Medium Weight Turnout blanket
Category: Horsewear

Purchase: I paid 54.95 for it at Crazy Horse Tack.com. I needed a medium to heavy weight turnout blanket for a large horse.

Likes: I think the blanket is eye catching. The barn manager told me it reminds her of the olympics. The blanket is 600D and 270 or 300 grams of polyfill, so supposedly reasonably sturdy and between mid to heavy weight. It has stood up so far to two months on a horse having full turnout in a mixed herd with new horses being introduced (meaning a lot of blanket biting, and rambunctious behavior) without a tear or a seam separating. Other than picking up dirt from rolling, the seams and fabric are unmarred. The inner lining is smooth against the horses coat. The buckles and straps have held up as new with one exception.

Dislikes: The sizing seems a bit inconsistent in the EQ line. I have the Newport lite turnout blanket in the same size (84), and it drapes and covers my large warmblood mare very well. The Royal Caliber seems a bit snug, maybe due to the additional padding. It is fine lengthwise, but it seems shorter to me from top to bottom, or maybe just is more fitted. You can see this in the picture on the sample horse, but I could wish that in the larger sizes it was also a bit LONGER from top to bottom as well as from chest to tail. Also one of the D rings to hold the leg strap broke, which is no big deal, since I just fasten the leg strap to the nylon loop the D ring was on. That's the only wear on the blanket.

Quality: Can't beat the price, sharp looking warm blanket that has held up well. I bought a second one for when this one wears out.
