From that point when the weather changes in the autumn, a stable rug is the ‘reach for’ item for many horse owners. Then as the season progresses into the cold dark days of winter, it might be necessary to use a heavier weight rug for below zero temperatures.

Because the British weather is so variable and unpredictable, it pays to have a wardrobe of rugs so you can choose the right rug weight for your horse. Over-rugging horses can be really detrimental to their health so being able to alter the rugs to suit our changeable climate is essential. You might start the winter in a lightweight but then move straight to a heavyweight once your horse is clipped out. Some horses feel the cold more than others and age can be factor as well.

The weight of rug you choose will depend on your breed or type of horse and whether they are clipped or not. A lightweight stable rug is usually around the 100g mark like the Horseware Amigo Insulator Lite in stylish and practical navy blue. This rug is suitable for milder conditions or native types in cold conditions, it can also be used under another rug when it is especially cold.

When temperatures really plummet, opt for the Horseware Amigo All-In-One Heavyweight which at 350g will keep your horse warm and toasty and has a seamless integrated neck so no gaping or rubbing.

A middleweight rug usually has a fill level of between 150g-250g depending on the manufacturer and is a good compromise for most horses. This stylish John Whitaker Rastrick Detachable Neck Medium Stable Rug is a 250g rug and offers the best of all worlds with the option to remove the neck when temperatures rise.

A coherent rug buying policy will help you to decide what works best for your horse, whether to layer up in cold temperatures and use a medium weight rug with a liner that can either cover the horse’s neck or be folded back or just choose an all-in-one heavyweight with an integrated neck.

Don’t forget to keep a cooler handy for hot or wet horses after work to prevent chills before you change them into a stable rug.  The WeatherBeeta Fleece Cooler Standard Neck Rug is available in stylish navy with a choice of red and white fittings and will dry your horse ready for his stable rug.
