Measure your horse. This can be done with a tape measure. Place one end of the tape in the centre of your horse’s chest and the other end on the horse’s buttocks where you would expect the rug to finish.
A badly fitting rug can slip and cause discomfort or even injury for the horse and also damage the rug.
Horse rugs are sized in centimetres, inches or feet and inches – make sure you check what size rug you are getting as a 66″ will not fit a 6’6″ horse.
Try it on your horse over a clean bedsheet or clean summer sheet – make sure you leave all the tags on. If the rug fits then remove the tags and use.
The rug should fit well over the withers and the shoulders so that the horse can move freely without the rug slipping back.
The straps should be tight enough to hold the rug in place, but not so tight that they cause the rug’s shape to distort on the horse’s back. If too tight they may cause pressure points around the horse’s chest and wither area.
Cross surcingles should be fastened so you can fit a hand’s breadth between the surcingles and the horse’s body. This means that the straps are tight enough to prevent legs becoming caught should the horse lie down, but not so tight to cause discomfort.
If the rug has leg straps, they should be fastened so that the left strap is passed around the left hind leg and fastened back to the left side. The right strap should then pass around the right hind leg, loop through the left strap, and then fasten to the right side. There should be about 4-5” between the strap and the horse’s leg to prevent the rug slipping without causing the horse any discomfort.
