Tried & Tested
Quiltmasta 350 Check Stable Rug
The Quiltmasta 350 'Check' stable rug from Masta will be a great addition to any equine's wardrobe.
Living up to its name, the rug gives a real snug quilt like feel, proving to be a popular choice among our horses!
The style and cut of the rug makes it a great shape for horses of different sizes and shapes. The neck is cut quite high with fleece padding to help protect the horse's wither and mane. When fitted, it didn't slip or slide backwards or create pressure points around the neck or rub marks.
The 350g Thermal lining gives for plenty of warmth, acting as a single rug as an ideal winter warmer or to sit under another rug when 'layering up'.
