We have brought together all the important practical features, minus the gimmicks, that you need in a horse rug. In particular the following features are important for performance:
Gohorse 600D and 1200D and 1680D synthetic rugs use high quality fabrics to deliver the desired characteristics needed which are durability, abrasion resistance and tear strength. The higher denier rating the heavier the fabric and greater the strength.
All provide the same level of warmth and waterproof performance and will last well but sometimes a tougher rug is what your horse needs.
Some horses seem intent on damaging their rugs and a ripstop fabric is essential to limit any tearing that might occur and allow repairs.
There is not much point in using the best fabrics unless it is combined with a great design. That is exactly what we do to deliver a rug that fits well to the shape of your horse and does not move or slip off when it shouldn't. Like people, all horses are a bit different in shape but the cut of our rugs ensures a comfortable fit for most horses while at rest and play.
Our synthetic turnout rugs have a very high level of waterproof performance, this is what our customers tell us they want and this is a key area of development for Gohorse.
Waterproof Fabric Rating - tested to exceed 3000mm waterproof - more than twice the minimum rating
A feature of our rugs that cheaper rugs do not have is internal taped seams to minimise the entry of any water along the seam. It is not enough just to have waterproof fabric but effort must be made to keep water out of all possible entry points.
Breathable performance of fabrics is equal and some would say more important than waterproof performance. With a Gohorse rug you get both.
Breathability Rating - tested to exceed 3000g/m2/24hrs for maximum comfort
Bartak Reinforced Attachments
Attachment points for leg straps, belly straps, chest buckles are high stress points and Gohorse rugs have all attachment points extra reinforced with cross stitch and bartacking to ensure they stay strongly attached.
Buckles and Straps
We believe that the quality and strength of a rug comes from an integrated design of all aspects from fabrics to shape and down to the design of straps and buckles. Our rugs come with detachable adjustable leg straps, tail cord, adjustable belly straps, double buckle chests closure, triple buckle neck closure. A perfect fit is the combination of the right design and ability to have adjustments in all these areas.
