Amigo Turnout Sheets

Hey just a quick question, does anyone know how well this turnout wroks against UV Rays in the summer?

Amigo 1200 Turnout - Lightweight

i;m just trying to find out, i know they have specific sheets that cover 90-95% of UV rays, so i thought maybe their standard sheet does a pretty good job while being tough enough for young horses to play in.

I love my amigo but I don't tend to use it as a sum screen as they're not overly breathible. Its more just a rain sheet, I know bucas have some very good rugs designed to stop bleaching so I should think they'd do a good job.

I'm not sure. We don't have to worry about that. My horse has a rain sheet and a couple winter sheets.

Thanks guys! I finally settled on a Kensington Traditional Cut 1200 Denier Protective Textile Sheet.

Should hold up through rough play and it is breathable (78% permiability) and also 73% UV Blockage.

Has anyone used Kensington before?
