Heavy Horse Summer/Cotton Sheet With Tail Flap And Shoulder Gusset
The Ruggles heavy horse summer/cotton sheet with tail flap is a most versatile rug as can be used for travel, as a bottom layer in a layered system or for stable use in warmer weather to help keep the horse cleaner and more dust free. The cotton is soft but tough 400gsm quality. This range has been designed specifically with the heavy horses in mind such as Shires and Clydesdales etc to allow them the extra where required particularly in depth and at chest and shoulders.
For comfort of the horse and to help prevent rubbing we have inserted soft nylon lining at the chest area and for those that rub their tails when stabled or travelling a very large tail flap! Other features of this rug are a wither protector and a very generous shoulder gusset to allow greater freedom of movement. There are double adjustable surcingle straps with rubber washers to help unfastening and a fillet string helps to keep the back end of the rug in place. At the chest there are double adjustable chest straps with D rings and quick release clips – so once the straps are adjusted for the size of the horse, the rug is very quick and easy to put on and off as just two clips to fasten at the chest.
This is a high quality summer/cotton sheet which is machine washable and comes packed in a zipped bag with handles which is useful for storing the rug when not in use.
