You have the right to be as sensitive as you would like.
Do we turn out without shelter - no. We have run in access in all turnouts.
Do "we" blanket - no. Boarders have the option of blanketing their horse. I will make adjustments, reattach leg straps, etc. But I cannot trust a boarders horse as I trust my own. With my own I have the option to get on their case for being naughty.
I will also tell my boarders if they choose to blanket they MUST have two. They get dirty, they rip, straps break. There is no sense in blankets if they are not maintained.
