Freestyle Landa - Medium Weight

For Sale on eBay

Manufacturer: Weatherbeeta
Model: Freestyle Landa - Medium Weight
Category: Horsewear

Purchase: I bought this blanket at Doonaree Tack Shop in Cookstown, Ontario, and paid (roughly) $170 for it. I was told that the new Freestyle design was a better fit for large shouldered horses, and I thought I would try it as I have not been able to find a properly fitting blanket for my draft cross mare.

Likes: This blanket is excellent. It is light enough that horses can wear it by itself outside, or you can put another blanket underneath it if it gets cold out. It leaves lots of room for the shoulders and does not pull on them at all. The new style of tail flap also keeps wind from going up the back of the horse. It's very waterproof and keeps your horse warm and dry in all kinds of weather. It also has special keepers on the belly straps to keep them from falling off.

Dislikes: I do not have any complaints about this blanket, it has stood up to lots of different things and not even a single rip.

Quality: It has a new front design with the shoulder gusset further forward and pockets above it for more room. The belly bands have keepers on them so they cannot fall off, and the tail flap reaches three quarters of the way down to the hocks, which keeps wind from blowing up. The outside is waterproof and the inside has a silk liner which is very helpful when it is put on top of another blanket.

Summary: Overall I believe that this blanket is an excellent buy and well worth the money. If you have a horse with wide shoulders be sure to get the new freestyle as it is the first properly fitting blanket I have found for this mare (after 6 years of looking!).
