How to work out what size rug will fit your horse

STEP 4: Mea­sure the length of the string — this mea­sure­ment gives you the size of rug to try.

STEP 5: Once you’ve bought your rug, try it on your horse over the top of a sum­mer sheet so it doesn’t get dirty — just in case it doesn’t fit and you need to change it.

STEP 3: Con­tinue with your string all the way down his side and round to the point of his but­tock. Tie a knot in the string to mark how long your horse is.

STEP 1: Take a length of string and start your mea­sure­ment by hold­ing one end of it in the mid­dle of your horse’s chest.

STEP 2: Stretch the string around his shoul­der and along his side.
