We have chosen this week the miniature horse lycra body suit with detachable tail bag as rug of the week. We have standard lycra in navy or aqua and water repellent black mini suits that are cut to the normal Ruggles design apart from the nose where my manufacturers have cut the noses just slightly longer than our normal pattern. For this reason, and not to confuse them with our normal stock, we have reduced these to £19 for the coloured and £22 for the water repellent. The water repellent are made from the same four way stretch lycra but have been treated so that they will repel a shower or if in stable will absorb less staining. There are not a huge quantity and only these prices for this stock whilst it lasts.
WIN A COMBO FLY RUG
We are running a competition on the Ruggles Equestrian Facebook Page to win a combo fly rug – competition ends 18 June. If you haven’t already entered take a look.
We have chosen not a rug but a hood as our ‘rug of the week’ until Friday 28 April as this has a useful purpose all year round! If you wish to just keep plaits in place prior to a show/hunting etc then this will do the job! The hood also has the added benefit of being water repellent which means that in the stable it will absorb less moisture than a traditional lycra hood – so less likelihood of stable staining! If you turn out in your hood then although not waterproof, the hood will resist a shower and roll in the mud. Available with or without ears these hoods, with chin to chest zipper, have got 15% discounted until 28/4 so are fantastic value at £33.15 and £31.45 respectively!
HOW TO MEASURE YOUR HORSE, PONY, SHETLAND PONY/MINIATURE HORSE/DONKEY FOR A RUGGLES HORSE RUG.
To work out the size of rug you require it is worth taking the time and effort to measure before ordering.
To calculate size required, place the tape measure at the centre of the chest, go round the shoulder and along the side to where you expect the rug to finish (this is approximately in line with the top of the tail). Measure in feet and inches and if falling between two sizes (which the majority will) then we recommend to go up to next size and not down as Ruggles Horse Rugs are very adjustable at the chest. Rugs go up in 3” increments.
With the clocks changing and the daylight hours increasing, we have decided this week to choose the combo fly rug as rug of the week until Friday 31 March. For both the horse/pony and Shetland/miniature ranges we have used the same tough/strong but soft closely woven 100% polyester fabric that we have used in recent years as we have found it to be the best quality fly mesh. Both ranges have belly bands and have lining at the chest and the mane line to help prevent rubbing.

A quick focus today on our middleweight turnout rug. This time of year, when its still quite chilly in the mornings and the weather can be unpredictable, a warm waterproof rug is a great addition to the horse wardrobe.
These horse rugs are made from 1200D waterproof and breathable outer fabric and have been Teflon coated for extra protection and to help resist staining. The underside has a soft nylon lining to help prevent rubbing and to keep the coat smooth and shiny
Other features of this rug are shoulder gussets, detachable webbing leg straps, generous tail flap, cross surcingles with rubber washers to help unfastening and double adjustable chest fastenings with D rings and quick release clips – a real asset in colder months as much quicker to put the rug on and off. The rug has a combo (non-detachable) neck with double velcro straps and flap to protect and a particular feature is the elasticated poll which helps to keep the neck in place and stop rain/wind going down the mane line.
Currently this rug is 25% off, and this represents exceptional value for money. There are still rugs available in most sizes at just £61.50 each.
In summary the features of this rug are:
1200d waterproof/breathable and Teflon coated outer fabric
Generous tail flap
Combo neck with elasticated poll and double neck fastenings with flap to protect

With March fast approaching and hopefully the weather settling many of us can start to think about reducing the warmth in the rugs our horses are wearing.

This rug is a standard rug and necks can be purchased separately if required. They are available in both the horse and miniature ranges and with 25% off (already deducted so check out as usual) these standard rugs are now just £42.75 and £30.75 There is a combo version of this rug – also with 25% off!
