Waterproof blanket

Hi. I'm trying to find a fairly cheap waterproof turnout blanket for Dancer. He does go out in the field with 2 other horses (including a punky mare) and there is only trees for shelter. He comes in at night. I really don't have a lot to spend but I don't want to get something that gets chewed up right away either.

I was wondering if this blanket is any good. According to the reviews its not but I don't always believe those.:

Tough-1 420 Denier Turnout Sheet - Horse.com

Thanks!

Even though the price of the 420 denier is very temping, I opted for the 1200 denier sheet of the same brand. I've only put it on my mare a handful of times but so far so good.

Yes, you definitely want something at least 1200D for turnout.. especially when they're turned out with other horses.

Ditto on least 1200 denier.

This is a case where you do get what you pay for. It's the same as buying bed sheets with a low thread thickness (denier), the lower the number the less quality

I don't blanket my horses unless the wind's blowing up a wind chill, it's raining or sleeting and there's no sun. I have various models of Weatherbeeta's, all 1200 denier. So far they're doing their job

You can get saxons pretty cheap at stateline tack right now, 1200D and lots of fill options.

I've got canvas for my guys {the youngster gets picked on regularly:(}, and they have held up well to other horses, and rolling!
Cheapest place I've found them:

I am personally a huge fan of Weaterbeetas. I have one that I have had for years that I have put on just about every horse. It has survived active stallions, PITA mares, and now is surviving a foal constantly tugging on mom's blanket. I just got my 5 mo cold a weatherbeeta and it is just as nice.

They run a little more than the other blankets but in my opinion are totally worth it.
