1. Martina,

    Great and practical advice! My sister-in-law and niece show Morgan horses. But I really never realized how much goes into choosing an appropriate blanket.

    If you’re not familiar with Morgans, they are a “compact” horse first bred in the late 1700s. Part of their history was in Middlebury, Vermont, near the town I grew up in and near where my sister-in-law and niece live today.

    I’m sorry to hear you have no horse riding opportunities in the city where you live. While I lived in San Francisco, one of my friends was able to work at a stable in Golden Gate Park in exchange for riding privileges. I hope you can someday find a similar opportunity until you get that farm!

    Best of luck to you, and I’ll look forward to hearing more details from you.

      Hey Roger,

      Thank you for your comment! I am familiar with the breed much not much about their history and I’ve never ridden one. I know their great for show jumping though!

      That’s great to hear that they are both showing – I’m sure they love it very much.

      That’s okay, sometimes other things take priority but I’m determined that it’s just a matter of time before I get back on a farm 🙂 I’m definitely keeping my eyes open for that opportunity!

      Best of luck to you and your family as well Roger,

    I had no idea that there was so much to be considered to ensure the right blanket and more importantly, that the horse is happy and comfortable with it.

    Very descriptive and detailed instructions here, Martina. Thank you!

      Thank you Andrea!

      Yes, with horses, there’s always so much more that goes into consideration than first meets the eye. You really just need to think of everything because anything that can go wrong will surely go wrong!

      Choosing a comfortable but durable horse blanket is extremely important if you want to keep your horse happy, healthy and dry!

      I’m happy that I could help 🙂 Let me know if you’re ever in need of more horse-related info!
