Blanket Waterproofing

Be prepared this winter by waterproofing your horse's blanket.

Before your horse starts wearing his winter turnout blanket, check to see if water still beads off the fabric. If it doesn’t, consider re-waterproofing your blanket. While most turnout blankets are waterproof when you first purchase them, the treatment can degrade after years of use. There are several water-repellent washes and sprays specifically designed for equine blankets, but you can also use a silicone-based spray that’s intended for patio furniture.
