I have a full fleece one that I use. It goes from their butt right up to their ears and buckles up in the front. The fleece works great as is kinda sucks the water/sweat off them. The blanket will be soaking wet but the horse underneath is dry.

Schneiders has a combo cooler, fleece outside with Irish Knit lining the inside. Saves you from buying two. Reasonably priced.

I always layered my coolers anyways to speed up the drying process. Definitely handy when dealing with a winter coat.

I love wool coolers. Horse's dry much quicker than with fleece girths.

Wick-Dri Cooler

The Wick-Dri Cooler is great to use after exercise or bath.

The wicking fleece draws sweat and moisture away from your horse, then the lightweight mesh overlay enhances rapid evaporation- leaving your horse dry and comfortable. You'll be amazed at how fast he cools down and dries after bath or workout! Imported. Also use the Wick-Dri Cooler for blanket or sheet liner to enhance breathability. Choose from standard neck (sizes 69-87) or new Combo with attached neck (sizes 69-84). We're sorry, but certain colors/sizes are sold out and have been removed from the drop-down menu.

Why does that cooler make me think Victoria's Secret for horses? That cooler is downright sexy.

I don't know why but perhaps because when I first saw this cooler, the song "Sexy and I Know It" by LMFAO came to mind....just sayin.

I love the dura tech one that sstack sales. Its made of wool and acrylic. The wool gets the horse dryer faster. But the acrylic makes it better so you can wash it and it will keep its shape unlike the solid wool blankets. It also wears very well. I've had mine for years and used it alot and it still looks like new. They also run very well in sizes. Not to mention they are very well priced.
