Some of our turnouts come with hoods and extended neck protection for snowy winters. Many have added details such as long tail flaps and durable elastic straps, surcingles and easy-to-adjust front closures. Fleece-lined turnout sheets offer an extra layer of warmth without bulk. Reflective piping aids in visibility and safety. Waterproof, windproof and sturdy construction keeps Mother Nature out and your horse comfortable and dry.
There is a Horze turnout to suit every horse’s needs as well as your budget and style.
Turnout blankets are the key to maintaining your horse’s health during winter’s worst weather.
A healthy horse requires a much turnout and fresh air as possible. Horses are not meant to stand in a stall all day and night. Many horse owners are torn between keeping their horses warm and allowing for plenty of exercise. When your horse is wearing the appropriate clothing, he is able to enjoy his turnout time and you are able to relax and know he is protected from the elements. With the exception of dangerous or extreme weather, daily turnout is the best way to keep your horse physically and mentally healthy. When the temperature drops, add an extra turnout blanket and keep him warm while he enjoys his pasture time. The selection of turnout blankets from Horze ranges from lightweight with a thin lining to our extra heavy duty extreme turnout blankets for sub-zero temperatures and bitter wind. Horses naturally shield themselves from the elements and while wearing the proper turnout blanket, your horse will have an added measure of comfort. High quality blankets are constructed with strong stitching, durable weatherproof fabric, sturdy hardware and added tail flaps and hood or neck protection.
Turnout sheets are the perfect transition from late winter to spring when a heavy blanket is too much.
Choose a lightweight turnout sheet to keep the chill away during cool spring or late autumn days. If a horse is overheated under a heavy turnout blanket, he increases his risk of sweating and then catching a chill. If he is uncomfortable, the benefits of turnout are outweighed by the chance of illness or injury. By providing a lightweight turnout sheet as the temperature changes, the protective layer is present without the added bulk of a heavier turnout blanket. Horze offers many weights of turnout sheets with or without fleece lining.
