Yea, I have a paint mare who is 15.3hh and wears an 84"!

Angel is 15.2 hands and wears a 81"/82", depending on manufacturer. She isn't very muscular, but she is long.

In the rare instances where I do blanket, my 16.2 TB wears a size 80/81. I always make sure the blanket has extra area in the shoulder gussets. (whatever a gusset is). Without that he gets rubs very quickly.

You just have to see your distance...you don't have to like it.

It's all been mentioned already but yea, it depends on brand and your horse's build. I too have 3 different horses that are all about the same height but all built differently so their blankets differ too. My 16.2h thoroughbred who is tall and slender wears a 75, my 16.2h Appendix who is a tank wears a 78, and my 16.1h short backed quarter horse wears a 72. What's funny is we also have a 15h quarter horse (barely 15h) who has a super long back and needs a 75 like his thoroughbred buddy who is over a hand taller. The same blanket that looks perfect on the thoroughbred looks like a skirt on the smaller quarter but he needs it for length. LOL!
