Question Is this blanket to large?

I recently bought this blanket for my horse. She is a 5.2 arab. The blanket is 74. It seems to look a little large in the shoulder area.. What do you guys think? I've never blanketed before. It is a sheet so I do have room to put another blanket under it.. But is it to large?

I think this may work!

It looks like she probably needs between a 70 & 72 but that one's not so big it'll be a problem. I'd rather see them large than to see them too small. I would tighten up the leg straps though, those are hanging down far enough I'd be worried she might get caught in them.

Horse is 15.2hh?? Or 14.2? Blanket does look on the big size for your horse I'd probably go a size smaller. For a horse over 15hh size seems small though,guess i'm use to my stock horses,My one mare I showed this year is 15.1hh & wears a 80-82

I'd go at least a size smaller. I have a different opinion to DA, I prefer a rug that is slightly smaller. Too big and they will slide back and pull on the shoulders, plus the risk of legs getting hooked up in leg straps and surcingles.

If it's new, go and exchange it for a smaller size.

Measure for the right size. Start at the center of the chest and go around to the center of the tail.. I have several different height and builds of horses and yet they all wear about a 76-78... Well, I did.. Not sure what a couple newbies wear.. I rarely blanket so not a biggie.
