We’ve all been there: standing in front of racks of winter horse blankets in a sea of colors and styles wondering which winter turnout is going to meet your horse’s needs as well as yours. WeatherBeeta has taken the pain out of blanket shopping by suggesting turnouts based on your horse’s personality. 

The Blanket Friendly:  Are you one of the lucky ones whose winter horse blankets seem to last forever? While any WeatherBeeta blanket would be perfect for your superstar who would never dream of being naughty enough to ruin his blanket, a good option is either the 1200 denier WeatherBeeta Original or the 1200 denier WeatherBeeta Genero.
