Well, a canvas rug is probably used for just a lighter weight rug in the fall before you need the full on winter blankets.
A felt-like rug could be used as a liner, or maybe a cooling sheet. But most people don't use their winning blankets because, why ruin your prize?
A cooling or wick-away sheet is a GREAT thing to have! If you want your horse to dry more quickly, or to stay warm while their drying from a bath in cooler weather, the wick away sheet helps ALOT!
And a lined blanket has a liner in it, probably fleece or wool, to make it softer against the horse's skin
