Frequently asked questions about Horse Blankets
The right time to cover the horse is controversial. Some riders do not blanket the horse at all, arguing that the winter coat provides sufficient protection from the cold. On the other hand, there are horses who sweat excessively in winter due to the increased work and are therefore shorn. In the latter case, there is no way around a blanket. Other owners try to cover the horse early in order to prevent the horse from shedding excessive fur. To achieve this, you start covering the animal already from temperatures around the 10°C with an unlined blanket. Depending on the weather, the thickness of the blanket should then be increased as the temperature drops.
