Heavy Horse Middleweight 280g Combo 1200D Turnout Rug
The heavy horse middleweight 280g combo 1200D turnout rug has been designed specifically so fit the heavier breeds such as the Shire, Percheron, Clydesdale and so on so are deeper and more generous at the shoulder and chest. This heavyweight rug is the warmest in the range and so ideal in colder months and for clipped horses.
Made from 1200d waterproof and breathable outer fabric, this rug has also been Teflon coated which provides extra protection, less staining and absorption so moisture beads from the outside of the rug making the rug lighter to handle in wet conditions. The heavy horse 280g combo rug has been cut extra deep and more generous at the chest to ensure a good fit on these broader builds of horse. The rug has a soft nylon lining to help prevent rubbing and keep the coat smooth. Taped seams.
Other features of this rug are cross surcingles with rubber washers to help unfastening, a very generous tail flap with reflective strip, taped seams and extremely generous shoulder pleats to allow for freer movement of the horse which helps to prevent friction. There are detachable webbing leg straps which are not sewn in – meaning that they can be removed if not required or easily replaced (without the need for expensive repairs) if damaged. At the chest there are double adjustable chest straps with D rings and quick release clips ensuring that once adjusted to the horse putting on and off is nice and quick as just two clips to attach at the chest. Velcro at the chest also features for extra security. There is a generous combo neck with double neck fastenings and flap to protect and a particularly nice feature is the elasticated poll which helps to stop rain/wind going down the mane line and helps to keep the neck in place. There are reflective strips at the chest, hind quarters and tail which are very useful especially if having to lead on roads.
The rug is machine washable and comes packed in a zipped bag with handles – ideal for storing when the rug not in use.
