Manufacturer: Horseware Ireland
Model: Rambo Optimo
Purchase: I bought this blanket from Apple Saddlery where it retails for around $500.
Likes: I love the colour! My horse looks like quite the handsome gentleman in the brown Rambo Optimo. I loved that I could start with the rainsheet, add the 200g liner, add the 400g liner then scale back down and use the same blanket all winter. The giants gussets are pretty great because my horse likes to hop around and play when he's outside and I didn't feel like he was restricted at all.
Dislikes: I did not like that the blanket fit as big as it did and I had to return it to get a smaller size. Shortly after I started using the blanket with a liner I realized that if the velcro on the front of the liner was not done up perfectly straight the edge of the velcro pokes out and rubs at the nylon on the shell. It wasn't a big deal and I just started doing the velcro straight.
Quality: The blanket was really well made and there were actually 3 playful geldings (mine and 2 others) in one field at our barn who each wore an Optimo all winter.
Summary: I love my Optimo!
