Keeping My Horses Warm with Turnout Rugs from Horseware Ireland

The handsome Friesians and Fell pony here at my Bedford, New York farm are all ready for winter.

My horses spend most of their time outside in their paddocks - running, rolling, and grazing. Now that colder weather has arrived here in the Northeast, it’s important that they all have well-fitted turnout blankets to keep them warm and dry. My stable manager, Helen Peparo, and I use the Rhino® Hexstop Plus Turnout Rugs from Horseware Ireland, a company based in Dundalk that focuses on making breathable equine covers that don’t leak, rip, or slip. I've been using products from Horseware Ireland for years and am so please with how they fit and protect the horses from the cold.

Here are some photos and a short video, enjoy.

And here's a brief video showing how comfortable the horses are with their rugs - they can run and play in them without any restrictions.
