Versatile and handy, lightweight turnout rugs for horses can be used as rain sheets in summer and for a little warmth and waterproofing in spring and autumn as well as an emergency outer over a ripped heavier turnout in winter.

Our lightweight turnout range in weight from those with zero-fill (0g) to those with 150g of fill. Whether you're looking for a rug with no neck, a detachable hood or an all-in-one (combination) design we have many designs on offer so it's easier for you to find the best one for your horse.

The lightest rugs, zero-fill / no fill are designed to be used as rain sheets and struggle to withstand prolonged periods of rain as there is only a thin lining between the horse and the outer material so just like a lightweight waterproof a human wears they can be overwhelmed. Even a little insulation such as a 50g can make all the difference.

Heavier lightweights such as those with weights at 100g - 150g are great for the colder weather of early spring and autumn, they can also be used for winter rugs for native breeds.

Do you need a heavier turnout rug? We have mediumweight turnouts (150g - 250g) and heavyweight turnouts (250g+) as well as various liners which can increase the warmth rating of a compatible liner system rug.

Don't forget we also have a wide range of stable rugs in various weights and designs if you're worried about a drafty stable or a clipped horse feeling the cold inside.
