WeatherBeeta ComFiTec Premier With Detach-A-Neck
Combined with WeatherBeeta’s classic durability and 100% waterproof materials, our tester loved the freedom of movement her horse had in this new ComFiTec Premier blanket. One of the standout features of the blanket is the front closure; instead of the usual buckles, this has a Full Embrace Wrap that overlaps, completely covering the horse’s chest, for a perfect fit. Memory foam lines the wither area for extra comfort, which our high-withered four-legged tester appreciated, and two belly surcingles keep this blanket in place. The full wrap tail flap helps contain body heat during the cold months of winter. At a fair price, the ComfiTec Premier includes the detachable neck cover.

Back OnTrack Mesh Sheet
Blankets can make your horse comfortable in more ways than simply keeping them warm and dry! Back On Track’s signature Welltex® material in their Mesh Sheet is perfect for any horse that needs some pampering, as it reduces muscle stiffness. Our tester loved how great her horse felt after a session in the sheet—her horse was free-moving and flowing from the second she mounted—and that it was still breathable while warming her horse’s muscles. Though it is pricey, our tester found the sheet to be completely worth it to keep her horse comfortable and ready for riding.

Horseware’s great quality strikes again with the Rambo Duo. Our tester loved the two-in-one style of this blanket that has a 100g outer shell with a removable neck as well as a detachable 300g liner so you can easily adjust and customize how much coverage your horse needs—it really is multiple blankets in one! Three belly surcingles and a convenient v-front closure with snaps keeps the blanket secure on your horse—seriously, this thing doesn’t slip at all. Reflective strips keep your horse visible day or night, and the new burgundy color with blue and tan piping is stunning.
