Medium Horse BlanketsHorse blankets medium
Here there are switch ceilings and here stall ceilings. Deniers: deniers is a term used to describe the threads and how closely the cloth of the rug is weaved. As the number increases, so does the external shell of the ceiling. In general, higher quality ceilings also have a tendency to provide a thicker seal.
The majority of respondents do not go below 600 deniers for their turnouts or blankets. The 1200+ deniers is the best option for a horse that is hard on blankets or has failed with other roughened on blankets. The hardest kind of cover and the least tearing.
Usually a litheweight cover is for a blade without polyfill. As a rule, a medium-weight ceiling weighs between 180 and 220g. As a rule, a heavier filling weighs between 300-370g. A number of firms produce an extra-heavy ceiling with a filling capacity of more than 400g. Some blankets have 100 gram filling, which is a big burden for a horse on a days too hot for a medium load, but still too cold for a canvas!
And how will my horse's cover suit? Throat area should be close - not too close and not too loosen! If you pull a rug too loosely through the back of the horse's head, it tends to slip backwards and can put a great deal of strain on your horse's paw. Too narrow a cover tends to grate the shoulders and ankles.
They should be able to move your hands between the ceiling and your horse. A little overlapping will keep your horse's breast warmer and less draughty. They should be able to strap the breast straps firmly enough to keep the light overlapping in the cover, but it should not be so narrow as to deform the form of the cover on the back of the horse or cause bruises around the horse's withers.
Sides of the rug should fall far enough down so that you cannot see your horse's stomach, but not far enough down to get to your horse's stifle. When your horse's stomach is too tight, your horse loses some warmth. Cruciform straps should be attached so that you can adjust the width of the palm between the straps and the horse's trunk.
That means that the harnesses are strong enough to keep the horse's feet from getting trapped when the horse lies down but not so hard that the horse feels unwell. Hindquarters should be completely overcast, but the ceiling should not extend to the tip of the toe, unless the ceiling has a tap.
