Model: Medium Weight Turnout Rug (View all Medium Weight Turnout Rug reviews)
Purchase: I got this turnout rug a year ago for the winter season since my horses spend the days outside, rain or shine. I live in Georgia so a medium weight is all that we need, even on the coldest days. I bought it from a local tack store for about $60.00. SAXON is a division of weatherbeta and I knew I could trust Weatherbeta's products to be sound and true to their word.
Likes: This has been the only thingI have bought for my TB mare that she has yet to destroy. My horse is rough on her clothing and has destroyed another blanket before I bought this one. She also, like a little kid, likes to play in the mud even if it's freezing outside. When she does, I just brush the blanket off with a stiff brush and it's ready for the next day. The Shoulder gussets on the front help to prevent rubs on the point of the shoulder and also allow the horse the freedom to gallop around to warm-up on really cold days. I also loved the price I paid for it. Being a college student on a college budget, this was a perfect blanket for me.
Dislikes: That you can't just throw it in the laundry to get really clean, but you have to so to the blanket cleaners with the rest of the blankets. Also it takes the rug about a day to dry after a rainy day.
Quality: This is the quality that I expect from the makers of Weatherbeta. The material is easy to keep clean on a daily basis and the material does not allow water to soak through the rug.
Summary: Like I said earlier, this is the only thing my mare hasn't destroyed in her process of play.
