A favorite of the Brookside line is the Medium Weight Turnout. You can embroider these, and this line also has matching Garment Bag, Boot Bag and a Western Saddle Carry Bag or All-Purpose Saddle Carry Bag.
How to measure Weatherbeeta Freestyle Blankets: With a soft measuring tape, measure from the center of the chest along the side of the barrel and belly to the point just before the tail (where horse’s rump curves back to the tail) to determine your horse’s length. Do not measure all the way to the edge of the tail or the center of the tail with the freestyle blankets as this will lead to a size too big. If your horse measures in between sizes, round down to the nearest size.*
*When fitting a blanket without freestyle or without a tail flap, your horse may require a larger size. When measuring, round up to the nearest size. The top of the tail flap (the binding or joint between blanket and tail flap) is designed to sit at the top of your horse’s tail. If the seam between the tail flap and the blanket falls below the top of the tail, the blanket is too big.
Most of the Weatherbeeta blankets are “European cut” (any blanket with a tail flap and sized in 3” increments.)
Brookside makes note if the blanket is “European cut,” for example the Medium Weight Turnout and the Lightweight Turnout Blanket. The most common size for a European cut is 75”.
An “American cut” blanket is typically any blanket that does not have a tail flap and is usually in 2” increments. The most common size in American cut is 78”
Finally, for that perfect fit, fasten and adjust the chest straps, leg straps and surcingles. Francie
