Blankets that come in 3in increments (ex 69, 72, 75) are euro sized and many of them are measured from the center of the chest to the point of the buttock. One of my horses wears a 78 "west cost cut" blanket and a 78 "euro cut" is far too large for him. You might want to double check with the manufacturer to see if the blanket you're looking at runs true to size as well as their recommended measuring type.
66 is quite small. Is this a growing horse or a large pony?
As far as weight of the blanket, that is personal preference based on your situation, environment, and horse. Mine are outside right now with a 500g blanket and it is 42 degrees. I might even consider them a little chilly now because the hair has lofted under the blanket. I use a layering system, so each horse has several different blankets that I can use in many combinations depending on the weather.
