Hello, so I am in Australia and am struggling to figure out which rugs to leave on my horse at the moment with out erratic weather, raining on minute, hot the next, freezing over night etc. and I would like opinions on rugging.
So I have cottons, a heavy synthetic (200g fill), a lined canvas rug & a no fill synthetic rain sheet.
- Cottons are obviously for days when it's warm enough to have rugs off.
- No fill synthetic is mainly for hot days with on and off rain, to keep the cottons from getting wet.
- I've been told the heavy synthetic should be on when it's under 10degrees Celsius and it should never be on over that.
- So when is it too hot for the lined canvas? 15degrees? 20?
My horse is a colder type horse. He rarely sweats up in his rugs.
