What is a horse blanket and why do we use them?


A horse blanket covers the horse’s chest, back, flank, root of the tail and backside. Some blankets also have extended neck protection to warm the horse's neck. Horse blankets can be made out of different materials such as fleece, wool and warmer lined down blankets. 

Horse blankets are primarily used to provide the horse with protection against rain, colder temperatures, and wind that can occur during all four seasons and thus functions as a jacket for the horse in many ways. It is common to use blankets on a groomed horse and thus add an extra layer of fabric.
