I agree with others that it varies too much to really predict. My 17hh mare wears an 84 but I also know a 15.2 or 15.3hh QH who wears the same size.

My 16h horses vary from 72"-81". You really need to measure.

Oh I am prepared for that, if she needs a bigger size at age 4 then so be it

I own everything from a dog blanket, through mini, pony & small horse on up to a whole pile of 78" blankets that seem to fit most of the herd. Plus a large blanket for the drafty. So I have been REALLY fortunate to just now get into a pickle as these two grow. The 2 year old is no where near his mature size (half-draft) and fits a 78" currently but after that, I am out of 78" blankets because everyone needs one. So its time to buy the 2 & 1/2 year old her own.


Does anyone have any experience with the SStack blankets? (Looking at this one...)
I have always loved my WeatherBeeta blankets until it was time to purchase two new ones last year. The older ones that I have still hold up and look great. The two from last year were short and both ripped :/

I got a Schneider's blanket for my horse last year and loved it. Not the same one you linked to, but a similar one also with a belly band. It was true to size, held up very well to being used all winter, and fit much better than his old blanket did (my horse has a very thick, low-set neck so finding a good fit was a challenge!)

I'm a convert to the Schneider blankets - they do offer different sizing relating to type in some blankets as well as just the length which can help get the right fit too.
I have found their midweight outdoor blankets compare to the Weatherbeeta heavyweight ones despite what the weight chart says
I like their bonus scheme as well - you get a cash back voucher every now and again relating to how much you spend with them

Thats the blanket that my 16.1 standie wears a 78 in. I love love love their blankets!!! I find them on par with Rambo/Horseware. Beautiful and well made and fit really well. I have the extra heavyweight with a hood.
