High visibility and reflective, 100% waterproof, breathable and windproof. The rug is lightweight and does not cause the horse to overheat. It is lined with a wicking fabric and quilting, so has a soft thin padding. This tough performance fabric provides durability with increased abrasion and snag resistance. The rug is 360 degrees reflective and fluorescent using a high performance fabric. A fully adjustable, detachable chest protector is fitted at the top of the pommel area so that it does not get in the way of the horse's movement. The rug can be used without the saddle. Using a surcingle, it's great for long reining or leading horses. The horse rugs are cut very generous in depth to fit the largest of horse's bottoms. The unique, exclusive designed girth slits guarantee that the rug will not slip. A fillet string may be attached at the back of the rug (not supplied). Crossover leg straps make sure the rug does not blow up in the strongest of winds. Flashing attachments can be fitted to the front and rear creating extra safety for riders who hack in the dark. Machine washable at 30 degrees with a non-bio washing powder.
