How To Measure For A Horse Blanket
Measure your horse for the correct blanket size by following these easy guidelines:
• Stand your horse square.
• Place your measuring tape at the center of the chest.
• Lay the tape across the widest part of the shoulder and hip, at an angle towards the tail.
• End your measurement where the tail hair begins.
• This measurement in inches is your blanket size. If your horse measures in between sizes, round up to the next size. (example: 79" = Size 80 horse blanket)
Measuring your horse correctly will help avoid rubbing and shifting, plus the inconvenience of bulky shipping and returns.
Well fitted blankets make happy horses!
