Not sure what the shopping options are in your area, but if you are uncertain what type of blanket will work best, recommend shopping a tack consignment store, or asking around local barns to see if anyone has an old blanket that you can borrow, rent, or similar until you figure out what works best for your horse. Most of us have loads of extra blankets because it is hard to know what works until you try it. Posting on Craiglist or similar sharing forums is another way to skin the proverbial cat. It's worth a try, because blankets aren't cheap! For what it's worth, I keep Weatherbeeta blankets on hand, most purchased used but in excellent condition, and have been thrilled by their longevity and performance. Not the cheapest, but they don't tear easily, which is a big deal with my current crew. Good luck!
