What is an Exercise Sheet?
An exercise rug or sheet is also known as a quarter sheet because it is designed to cover your horse’s hindquarters. It is worn when you are riding out. The sheets may sit under the saddle but above the saddle pad. Alternatively, some styles sit behind the saddle and can easily be removed when required. Exercise sheets which are fashioned from waterproof synthetic fabrics help your horse to keep dry as you ride. The sheets are also useful on the coldest days to help your horse to keep warm and can be utilised at the end of a session to prevent your horse from catching a chill and they cool down.
Your exercise sheet may also double as a safety aid if you choose a style fashioned from high visibility fabric. A yellow or green sheet helps to make you more visible when riding on public roads, especially in adverse weather conditions and fading light.
As you can see, an exercise rug is an excellent addition to your horse’s wardrobe and offers many benefits. Always useful to have at your disposal, an exercise sheet is an affordable accessory that you won’t want to be without.
