Stable Rugs – A Simple Comparison
With a huge selection of stable rugs available from a whole host of well known brands, we decided to take a moment to compare a selection of those rugs. Taking the information, we as horse owners normally look for when making the decision to purchase, we have compiled a comparison table for quick reference.
Admittedly, we are now half way through the winter however with some of the coldest months still to come now may be the time you choose to look for a heavier weight rug. Lightweight rugs are often a popular alternative to using one heavier rug as they offer the flexibility to ‘layer up’.
Please note, size of rug and availability from chosen retailer may vary.
