I have NEVER had a horse get tangled up when rolling with a rug. An old lease horse somehow managed to get out of his canvas rug on a few occasions without ripping it or undoing anything - STILL cannot work that one out - but I've never had a horse get stuck in a rug.
I cross my leg straps and all my rugs have double cross over belly straps as well. I don't do them looser or tighter than fitting my hand between the leg and the strap.
Not a stupid question at all. I can see how it could happen, but I think it would only really happen when the leg straps are too loose. They'd break if he got tangled though.
