This heavy winter turnout blanket is the perfect daytime companion to the Horze Avalanche Combo Stable Blanket. Swap out at night and your horse has a complete winter wardrobe.
The Horze Avalanche Combo Winter Blanket will keep your horse warm and protected in extreme winter conditions. Horses are healthiest when they are outside and moving around and you can give your horse this freedom while he wears this durable blanket. Alternate with the Horze Avalanche Combo Stable Blanket (item # 24535 sold separately) for outdoor use. And switch this blanket out with the Horze Avalanche Medium Weight Combo Blanket (item # 24537) for those winter days when the winter weather is slightly milder.

Machine wash cold water. Gentle cycle, normal detergent that does not contain bleach or fabric softener. Air dry only. Do not tumble dry.
I ordered this blanket for a very large Standardbred 2 yr old and an avg size TB. The 78" size fits very well the 17+hh colt and the 72" is just a little long on the back of the 15.3hh TB mare. It's easy to put on and all straps are easily adjustable. The leg straps are elastic, and I thought they were a little short & had to let them out all the way for both horses. I removed the tail cord. The high neck adaptation attaches at the bottom front of the chest so no big gap which I really like. The velcro makes closing the neck piece simple. There is an optional halter velcro at the top of the neck piece. Right now the weather is inconsistent & I change blankets too frequently to use this feature, but I will once winter sets in. This blanket keeps the horse very warm & may be too much if your temps do not get into the 20's. The water proof feature is great for the cold & wet fall weather. I will probably buy a few more for some of the other more weather suseptible horses.Written on by Custom Threads
I have the Horze Avalanche Winter Rug in navy for my daughter's new 14.2hh pony, who had been fully clipped out prior to buying her and we needed to keep her out 24/7! I wanted an excellent quality rug, to keep her as warm as possible until her coat grew out a bit. I am thrilled with the rug, especially with the closed in front hole below the neck to keep her extra snug. It is a very smart rug, and she looks very snug and cozy in it and the neck stays up behind her ears. I mention this as I have had experience of the neck cover falling down on other combo rugs. I would thoroughly recommend this rug.Written on by Julie
This blanket is not only well made and sturdy, it also wears well and looks great. I am comfortable keeping my trace-clipped horse in the pasture with this blanket on- we recently had a huge rainstorm and he was totally dry except for his ears and lower legs. All my barn buddies have asked where to get it! Will buy again.Written on by L.
Recently purchased two of these blankts for our show horses that are on winter rest in the pasture and I am very impressed! These blankets came with so many extras and added features I felt like I had gotten a super expensive blanket for an exceptional price. Having recently gone through a tropical storm, I can testify to the water resistence. Not sure about durability yet but will let you know. :)Written on by bethany
Super nice blanket with lots of features! The neck cover velcro's down by the chest area to keep from having a hole and that is really nice! I've been highly impressed with the Avalanche blanket line and look forward to replacing other blankets with these!Written on by Redfishy
The blanket was as described. Heavy weight/ warm. Everything is adjustable and completely covers my horse. I contacted customer service with a question via email and was answered within an hour of so. Highly recommend!Written on by Happy with Horze!
I received this and was pleaseantly surprised to find out it is in fact waterproof and extremely well made. The price was superb and quality excellent. Would recommend this product!Written on by Lisa O
Has all the bells and whistles of a more expensive rug. I only wish the neck was removable...some days you just don't need the neck if the horse isn't clipped. Very nicely made, will buy again!Written on by maggie g
I really like this blanket. It's cold and rainy with occasional snow where I live and this blanket is meeting all weather conditions with ease. Very water proof, doesn't rub, stays in place, and looks good. Lightweight but warm. While shopping I wondered about not being able to remove the neckpiece, but decided to go for this one anyway. Now I love this feature. My horse can move easily in the combo, it doesn't bind anywhere, and it adjusts to a perfect fit.Written on by Anonymous
The shipping was really fast and the blanket is wonderful. The navy blue with red and white looks great on my bay thoroughbred. It fits great and the design of the front of the blanket really does cover and protect from the cold and wind. We recently had a cold winter storm and my horse was dry except for his face and lower legs. My horse has a full clip and the weight if the blanket fits out California climate nicely (for nasty storms). One feature not mentioned is that on the blanket up by the ears, there is padding so the blanket does not rub. Overall, thus blanket was great and a really good price :)Written on by Amaretto
I bought several of these blankets and love the color, fit, and style! However wish they were heavier denier, my horses are hard on blankets and they have lots of snags and small tears in them....Written on by Gene
very fairy rug for my horse! Very durable but too expensive...beautiful colors and it looks well on my princess!Written on by Valentina Bottiglieri
Such a disappointment. Loved this rug on arrival, especially good design, but simply not strong enough. Worn 3-4 times and a great rip has appeared along one seam (this is not a daft horse that gets caught on things). Raised it with Horze who replied that horses are big strong animals! Still in discussion, but really disappointed with the whole experience.Written on by Anonymous
I see a beautiful, warm, colourful and very detailed rug! It just started snowing here, and when it really storms this beauty comes on. My horse loves it, runs around happy as if she's wearing nothing! Amazing fit, beautiful detail, fair price and the quality seems really good. I'm a happy and satisfied costumer, and so is my horse! :)Written on by Tina
In less than 2 months this rug has torn along one side (for no clear reason) come completely unstitched at the neck cover and worn through inside the neck so the stuffing is coming out. Horze continue to quibble about a refund or credit note. This is the worst rug I have ever had and very poor customer service.Written on by Anonymous
This is my best purchase from horze. Great warm well fitting rug. Yes is expensive but well worth the money in my opinion.Written on by H
I bought the stable rug version of this and we are now entering our 5th year of use, it still looks like new and has wash brilliantly. I so wanted an outdoor rug in the same style as the design is superb...no silly gaps etc..so when Horze produced them..I had to have one for my mare. Unfortunately she suffers with early onset arthritis and so needs to be kept warm, this rug has been a godsend especially after last winter! There is nothing i do not like about the rug, the fit is excellent, the high shoulder vents gives her room to move freely the neck covering the chest is more genius...no wet inside the shoulder due to rain/snow. Elasticated leg straps, clip fastenings at chest, good deep length and super warm and strong....never again will I waste money on cheap rugs that need replacing after one season....were ready for the winter...bring it on! :) Thank you Horze.Written on by littlehap
This past weekend I competed in the Ocala Horse Trials in Ocala, FL...I hope for warm sunny days at every event, but knowing I’m prepared for anything Mother Nature throws at me keeps me confident and ready to tackle even the toughest courses!
