Horse Blanket Troubleshooting Solutions

Horse Blanket Troubleshooting

Schneiders wants to make blanketing your animals as hassle-free as possible. Horses will be horses, and as owners we sometimes have to do a bit of troubleshooting. Some common annoyances with blanketing horses include blanket tears, dirty Velcro closures that are no longer effective and blanket rubbing. Stress no longer – Schneiders has the following horse blanket solutions!

1.StormShield® Blanket Repair Tape
Even the strongest blankets can tear, either on the outer shell or on the lining. Having them repaired can be expensive and time consuming. The simplest solution is to use Schneiders’ StormShield® Blanket Repair Tape. It allows you to quickly and easily repair waterproof turnout blankets in minutes. It is offered in 18” strips in 10+ colors, and costs much less than a typical blanket repair ($2.95 a strip). Don’t let your horse go without a blanket just because it needs repaired! Fix it at home with StormShield® Blanket Repair Tape. Click here to view a video tutorial!

2.Velcro Restorer Brush
I am a fan of Velcro assist front closures on turnout blankets. They keep the front of the blanket closed so that it doesn’t bunch up behind the buckles after your horse has been moving around. The problem, though, is that the Velcro doesn’t stand a chance of staying clean in the barn and soon loses its effectiveness. This Velcro restorer brush brings it back to life in no time, and is cost effective to boot. It is one of those items you don’t think to shop for, but can’t live without once you own one.

3.UltraFlex® Shoulder Slicker
Even the best fitting blankets can leave rub marks on sensitive horses. If you are showing and want to prevent rubs and hair loss on the base of the mane and top of the withers, or if your horse is sensitive but needs to stay blanketed, try using a shoulder slicker. The lycra prevents friction from blanketing so hair loss is kept to a minimum. Schneiders’ UltraFlex® Shoulder Slicker is made of 8 oz durable lycra with a Velcro closure at the neck and an elastic girth strap to keep it securely in place. Our slickers are sized to fit weanlings up to large warmbloods (sizes 64 – 86).
