Looks like it could be a stable sheet to me? I'm not sure. What brand is it?

Looks like a fitted cooler.

Agree it's a cooler.

As far as "too thick" there are many different styles of coolers, personally I think the above is the most common.

It would also make a decent layer during the winter if need be.

Regardless don't love the way it fits (I see you only put it on for the photo but just wanted to mention that).

I love fitted coolers for blanket liners. I use them all winter long. Also good for something to throw on as a stable blanket on a damp cool evening when the horses are inside. However that one is far from fitting your horse.

Its what I would call an under blanket. It doesn't fit well.

Yep, looks like a fitted cooler that's not exactly fitted. ;)

However, I've known people to use them as under covers as well.

What is the material?

If you do use it then tighten the belly straps, she could get a foot through them
