It is an extra layer to put under an outer rug for example it replaces a stable blanket that goes under a jute or stable rug. It gives extra warmth and rather like when we wear a blouse or a polo neck under a woolen jumper! It can also prevent friction which could cause sores or bald patches especially on the shoulders. I wish we had them in my day - a 5 foot girl trying to put two or three heavy blankets on a 17-18hh horse and THEN a rug is very hard work!

Under rugs are used with turnout rugs or stable rugs. You can use them together to keep your horse warm in cold weather.A

Under-rugs are for if you need a heavier rug all of a sudden you can put this on under a normal rug using a piece of equipment called surcingle which is like a girth that goes all the way around your horse to keep the rug(s) in place because the under rugs don't have the stomach straps that normal rugs do. I was going to buy one for my thoroughbred because this is our first winter together and we are worried about her keeping wait on but don't want to buy loads of rugs. Hope this helps.

Under rugs are for extra warmth underneath another rug, usually a stable rug. They can also be used under turnout rugs but can become damp, so are not suitable for horses on full time turnout.
