Waterproof blanket?

So last year we bought a Rambo rainsheet. It was completely water proof. This summer, we brought it home and washed it with the hose, no soap or anything. Lately, the BO said it isn't water proof any more. The other day it was lightly raining out and she said the blanketr was soaked. Question is, What happened to the blanket? Can I make it waterproof again?

I'm not sure what happened to the blanket because I don't have any experience with the Rambos but what I can suggest is going to a sporting goods store that sells camping supplies and tents and getting the waterproofing spray that they use for tents. I'd be sure just to get the outside of the blanket though. You may end up having to do it once a year.
That's the only thing I can think of, maybe someone else would have a better idea.

Did you buy it new? If so, I'd contact the shop where you bought it to see how long the waterproofing should last. They (Rambo) also have a waterproofing product that I think is applied in the washing machine otherwise, try finding somehting from a camping or sporting goods shop that can be sprayed on or used in the washing mashine.

Okay, thanks for the suggestions. I think I'll try the waterproofing spray. And yes, we bought the blanket new

Not to mention calling Rambo. Most people buy Rambos because they have a great reputation and a great warranty. I know one friend who has 1 Rambo and has had it for 6 years. If it gets a tear, she calls them and they send her a new one.

Yes, Rambo prides itself on the quality and durability of their blankets. They were having a contest at one point to see who had had a Rambo blanket for the longest period of time and there were some people who'd had those blankets for 20-30 years without a problem.

Hmmmmm..that's weird that my blanket's like that. I remember seeing that contest, it was fun to look at all the old blankets!

Well, I'm not sure what to say exactly... could it have been warm enough (while still raining) that your horse just got sweaty and thus gave the appearance that the blanket had soaked through?

Was the blanket and the horse wet? Because naturally the blanket is going to get 'soaked', but what matters is whether or not the horse in the blanket is soaked.

Not exactly sure, but that might be the case. My mare does sweat alot, but usually not to the point where it's saoked through. Then again it was raining.....very good point

Rambos are guaranteed to be waterproof for at least 3 years so if you contact them I'm sure you'll get another one.
