The UK weather can be brutally cold and wet in the depths of winter making it a challenge for horse owners to keep their horses warm especially those who older, lose condition easily or are clipped. Our selection of heavyweight turnout rugs all have 250g or more insulation for a high warmth rating, some are even under rug/liner compatible for even more warmth.

The weight of turnout rug suitable for your horse depends on a number of factors such as their breed, age, condition, how active they are, if they are clipped and how exposed their field is, it is very much dependant on your horse and their environment. Heavyweight turnout rugs are designed for use in very cold temperatures or to offer your horse insulation in place of missing coat which has been clipped in cold temperatures. It is important only to give your horse the added warmth they need or they can suffer from overheating or "over rugging".
