IN GENERAL
This rug is supposed to be lightweight and I was automatically thinking it had to be 600 denier and therefor fitting in my washer at home. Well, it does not fit in my washer. But it sure is a very handy rug that we have used almost every day since we bought it.
Expecting that the rug would look unkept quickly due to its light colour I was pleasantly surprised about how well it keeps. Yes it does get dirty when the horses roll around knee deep in mud, but its very easy to brush of.

The rug fits perfectly on our big boned Knabstrupper due to the deep cut. It covers his big belly and lays perfectly along his neck. We have had no issues with rubs from this rug.

The light colour was something we went for as it will be a bit cooler on does tricky days with cold mornings followed by sunny afternoons. Most rugs are dark blue or black and the horses often sweat in those as soon as the sun comes out, so a wider lighter colour range is most appreciated.

The detachable neck is easy to take on / off and give great protection on those windy rainy days. The neck is on the longer side and has an elasticated band behind the ears, so that it tucks in, and does not let any wind down on the inside.

The rug can be combined with necks and liners from the same brand.

From what I can tell you can use some of the Horseware Amigo/Rambo necks on this rug as well.

The whole rug has a high quality feel to it, and seems to fit a large number of horses!

We love it!

HOW WE CLEAN IT
As it did not fit in our home washer, we send this one in to be done by a professional rug service.

THE FIT
As most of the Premier Equine rugs and sheets, this one comes a bit big in size. If you are between sizes, go down.
As it has a low cut it will fit big boned horses perfectly. It will also fit smaller horses, you just need to size down.
Feels like a protective tent for the horse on those horrid windy and rainy days!

VARIATIONS
Comes in 4 colours, Green, dark blue, lavender and the one we have turquoise.
Sizes 5’6″ – 7’3″

The neck is cut high and this protects instead of rubs!
