The team at Egami Creative definitely exceeded my expectations! I have to say they were extremely helpful and Jojo went above and beyond to answer to all of my questions from beginning to end. So nice to be working with a web design firm who actually respond to e-mails, answer their phones, and meet in person has been the best part of working with them.... what a night and day difference from my last web firm. My new Ecommerce Website looks and functions great and the CMS is way easier to manage and update!

Blankets are primarily used to shield horses from varying weather conditions and climates. Providing your horse with the best fit, comfort and protection is vital for your peace of mind and your horse(s). The right blanket choice will help to regulate your horse's body temperature and maintain a healthy condition.
Here are some main types of blankets available for your horse(s);
1. Turnout Blankets
Using a turnout blanket will help protect your horse from harsh weather conditions such as the cold, rain, wind and snow keeping them warm and dry. There are various levels of protection and warmth available in a turnout blanket and you should consider you own horses living and grazing conditions, your clipping routine, weight, age and exercise level before purchasing a blanket.

2. Rain Sheets
A rain sheet is made of waterproof fabric and may be lined with a thin cotton-like lining. The purpose of the rain sheet is to keep the horse dry in wet weather. It's very important to buy a rain sheet made of breathable fabric. In warm weather, horses can quickly become overheated and sweat in a rain sheet. To view the Rain Sheets click here
Coolers should be used after exercise when the horse’s body temperature has increased. Using a cooler blanket will help regulate the horses temperature and prevent it from dropping too rapidly while he is cooling down. To view the Cooler Range click here.
Horses that are clipped and living indoors will benefit from a stable blanket that will provide warmth to a horse that is unable to move around freely to generate their own body heat during colder months. Lighter weight stable blankets can also be used to help keep horses clean that mainly live inside all year round.
Will blanketing my horse one winter prevent him from growing a good coat the next?
Nope. Our sources agree that there’s no merit to this old wives’ tale. Like clockwork, the change in seasons and shorter days cause your horse’s body to begin preparing for the cold months ahead.
“I’ve seen lots of horses that have had blankets on, and when you turn them out (the following winter) they turn into Thelwell ponies, as happy as can be!"
