It is officially blanket season–is your horse’s winter-weather wardrobe up to date? If not, SmartPak can help.
Me, I put it off as long as I could but finally, at the end of last week, I broke down and body-clipped my horse, Esprit. (Which is to say, I paid my barn buddy Kaitlyn to do it, because body-clipping is my absolute least favorite activity in the world. Itchy hair in the bra–no thank you.)
Anyway, once my horse was totally naked, I started rummaging through my blanket collection. Turnout sheet: Definitely no longer waterproof. Mid-weight: All straps ripped off except one–good job, Esprit. Heavyweight: Two broken buckles, giant rip in the bum. Neck warmer: Nowhere to be found. And, of course, all of them were still totally covered in mud.
I’ll do what I can to restore life to my old blankets, but clearly, I was in need of some new ones. SmartPak to the rescue!
Not only does SmartPak have an amazing blanket selection, they also make purchasing easy with tips and tutorials that ensure you’re getting the perfect blanket for your horse–like these tips on blanket fitting. Other tools include blanket/cooler comparison charts and Blankets 101, with a measuring tutorial and helpful hints.
Maybe I should invest in this one:
