I bought a tough-1 blanket once for my lipizzan/tb filly and it didn't fit her right. i haven't bought another or tried the horse size....

I've heard that they are great blankets, but don't know about the sizing.

Piaffe 12-11-2010 04:31 PM

Measure the middle of her chest to the middle of her tail...you can add a couple inches

Or do you mean overall sizing of the brand as a whole? Ie runs larger/smaller?

If this is the only horse in the field, 600 denier will be just fine. If there are other horses that may tug at her blanket, go for the highest denier that you can afford. A great place to check reviews, from people who actually own the blanket, is horsetackreview.com.
