Rainsheet

Well the cold freezing snow has yet to come, but we are getting alot of rain...
The only blanket I have is a heavy weight...for the snow, so I wanted to get a rain sheet for now when it rains.

What brands do you all recommend?

Depends on the build of the horse. Weatherbeetas and Big D blankets fit QH-type horses quite well. They both make a really good rainsheet.

I LOVE LOVE LOVE the rainsheet that Amigo/HorseWare Ireland makes - - I got mine for $35 because a tack shop was going out of business....Justin stood out in the rain for 3 hours one time...had pools of water everywhere...that blanket wasn't even damp underneath

Weatherbeetas are good too, but i say that the superior "waterproofability" goes to Amigo
