who else puts 4 rugs on there horse?
i have a 24yr veteran mare show mare who is currently blanket clipped and in full work ( you wouldnt think she was 24 ! no stiffness at all ! )
but gets cold easilly so has these rugs on:-
stable rug med weight full neck
duvet on top with surcingle
a aspen combo ontop of them with full neck
and a lighter med weight turnout rug with full neck
and sometimes a lycra hood to keep her main flat and shiny
i personally dont think this is too much, she never sweats up under the rugs and some times when turned out shivers and stands at the gate wanting to come in ( esp in the snow )
she has a nice shiney coat and seems to love been snug.
what does anybody else use?
