Frequently Asked Questions

Should I Waterproof my blanket every time I send it in?

No, you don’t have to waterproof your blankets every time you send your blankets in. If you send your blanket in once a month for washing (October-March) we recommend waterproofing twice a year. The beginning of the rainy season and again in the spring once you switch to lighter blankets. Not every material holds waterproofing well, so keep that in mind. The tighter the weave the better the waterproofing holds.

How do I know what size blanket my horse wears?

Measure from the center of your horses chest around his barrel to the center of his tail. ROUND DOWN!! We have found that most blankets get ripped because the blanket is too big.

Why does my blanket twist on my horse?

Try criss-crossing your elastic leg straps rather than keeping them on the same sides. Also, make sure all your belly straps and legs straps are shortened, not tight but snug. Low hanging straps can get caught when your horse kicks at bugs and gets up from rolling or sleeping.

Will you pick up my blankets from my private barn?

Yes, we will pick up from any private barn but we have a 5 blanket minimum and a fuel charge.

How do I purchase used blankets from you?

At the moment purchasing of used blankets is on hold.  MUST have payment for items BEFORE we can send them to you.

If a blanket is truly waterproof how does it breathe?

These blankets are usually constructed with a Wik-away material. Your horses body temperature will actually help keep your horse dry underneath. Think of it as you would a top of the line Waterproof coat from REI.
