Purchase: I ordered this quarter sheet from the Schneiders website, www.sstack.com, for $20. It got it last month, November 2005. I wanted a quarter sheet for my fine-coated pony to wear while I exercised her during our cold Michigan winters.
Likes: It does the job it is supposed to do! It fits nicely and keeps my pony's back and hindquarters warmer while we are working, so I don't need to feel so bad about taking her out of her toasty blanket. It has a keyhole cutout shape, so that you run part of it under the saddle flaps and velcro it in front of the pommel instead of placing the whole thing under the saddle and attached to the girth. This makes it easy to remove without dismounting if you want to take it off during your ride when the horse gets warmer. It can also be place over the rider's thighs and velcroed in front of the waist, but I have not chosen to do this (I am not sure it seems totally safe to do so). I like that it came in several sizes, as "big horse" clothes don't fit my pony. The smallest size, the 54", fits my 14.1 hand pony well. It stays in place well and doesn't slip or fly up (unless the pony bucks hard). My pony can be "sensitive" but she accepted the quarter sheet surprisingly well. Perhaps she really does appreciate the extra warmth. I chose a fleece sheet (as opposed to wool) because I like how easy it is to wash.
Dislikes: Sometimes we have a bit of a static cling issue, but you always get that with synthetic fleece.
Quality: The quality is good and the price is great! It does have rings so that you can attach a tail cord if you want to.
Summary: I like this quarter sheet. I have never used one before but it is working out well. If I ever want another I will likely order from Schneiders again.
Usefulness Rating: 2.75 out of 5.
