  1. Horse Talk
    Hi, Just wondering if anyone has a recommendation for a rug that will fit and be waterproof (as far as possible) for an Arabian. She is a solid 15.2hh girl (though 34) with 5'6" as her standard size but I tend to find that ALL rugs I have tried over the years sit too low on her wither and/or...

    Hi, I was wondering if you can completely stop blanketing in a horse who has pretty much been blanketed its whole life, as I am not too keen on blanketing, I just think it's unnecessary and unnatural whilst the horse has perfectly good natural oils in its fur to keep him both cool and warm.

    My horse is grey and always comes in covered with mud! It takes me so long to get him mud free again, my friend suggested buying a no - fill turnout rug to keep on him in summer, mainly to keep him clean! I'm a bit hesitant as he doesn't get cold easily and I'm worried he could still over heat...

    Okay, so I have an 18 yr old Arab gelding who up until now has been doing pretty well in the weather I've been having (rain, wind, storms ect). Where I am it's the middle of winter.
