You want one that is more of a full sheet? Is that what you are asking for?

I'm not 100% sure I understand your question. Are you saying that you are hand-walking him on the road and need a high visibility rug rather than an excercise sheet? If so I have yet to find one.

This is an excercise sheet, however I think it is fastened rather than held in place by the saddle so it might be ok:
Reflective Horse Wear, Reflective Riding Rug £27.10 | Equine Showbiz

If not have you considered using an exercise sheet secured with a neophrene surcingle? If you are only walking short distances it may be sufficient

Here is a link to a company that sell a clip on reflective V designed to clip on to the front or back of your existing rugs:
Clip on "V" - Horse Safety, Reflektoren zum Anklippen<br/>Réflecteurs à pince<br/><br/>Freestanding clip-on reflective "V", suitable for clipping onto coats or rugs. Ideal when turning in/out on those early mornings and dark winter evenings

There is also a company called rug-id who will put your postcode in high visibilty neon strips onto your rugs. This is designed to be a deterrent to thieves also. They are based around the new forest.

If none of these options are working for you there are a LOT of high visibilty horsewear options available such as boots, tail guards, headcolloars, neck straps etc etc that you could use as an alternative to a full rug.

Hope that helps
