You might be wondering how many different rugs and sheets you need for your horse. Horse rugs are fashioned from technical fabrics and each style is designed for a specific purpose. It isn’t advisable, for instance, to use a stable rug as a turnout rug as it will lack the waterproofing required for use outdoors. A cooler rug is an accessory that you should certainly consider adding to your horse’s wardrobe and these sheets offer several benefits.
What is a Cooler Rug?
Coolers enable your horse to cool down safely on colder days and without the risk of catching a chill. Fashioned from advanced moisture wicking fabrics, coolers efficiently draw moisture away from the skin and direct it to the surface of the rug where it can then evaporate away.
These clever sheets allow air to circulate so that your horse can dry naturally. Also possessing insulating properties, the sheets ensure that your horse’s temperature does not drop too rapidly as they cool down. You should have a cooler to hand for use after your horse has exercised or has been hosed down.
Coolers are useful when you are travelling as the sheet will help your horse to remain clean in transit but without the risk of them overheating. In the winter months, the cooler can be utilised as an under rug to provide an additional layer of insulation should your horse require it.
