Look at the the Denier rating. A higher rating will be more rip-resistant. No horse blanket is indestructable.
I do have 2 suggestions:
- Turtleneck brand blankets come with a no-rip guarantee. If the blanket rips in a normal circumstance (caught on fence/tree, got bitten) they will replace the blanket if it rips.
- I own a Textilene fly sheet. It is made out of a super durable mesh, the same stuff you find on softer lawn chairs. A popular brand is Kensington, but Greenhawk sells it too, I can't remember the name of the blanket though. I bought this fly sheet a size too big so I could still use it as a fly sheet in the summer, but also to throw over my winter blankets to keep them from being ripped.
