How To Measure Your Horse For a Rug

Fit is the key when buying any horse rug.  To measure your horse for a rug put one end of the tape measure in the centre of your horse`s chest and the other end on the horse`s buttocks where you would expect the rug to finish. 

Your horse should be able to move freely without the rug slipping and the rug should fit well over the withers and shoulders.  When fastening cross surcingles ensure that you can fit a hand`s breadth between the surcingles and the horse`s body.  Straps should be tight enough to hold the rug in place but not so tight that they cause pressure points or distort the rug`s shape.
