A good blanket is essential for keeping your horse warm and dry all winter long. The key to finding the perfect blanket is to buy one that caters to your horse. Is your horse rough on blankets? Look for a fabric that’s durable and tear-proof. This way you don’t buy a new one every season. Are your winters wet and cold? Find a blanket that can withstand moisture and the below-freezing temps. Horseware Ireland’s Rhino HexSTOP ($339.95; horseware.com) is made with a ripstop polypropylene fabric to prevent tears and uses vari-layer technology to place fiberfill in key areas for heat retention. In addition, the Aquatrans Barrier Technology will keep your horse dry regardless of the weather conditions.
