Question:

What size horse rug?

ok so i'm entering a competition to win a horse rug and am not sure how the sizing works. as a rough guide only, i need to know what size rug goes on what size horse (e.g. 15hh horse needs size _' _quot;). thanks :)

Answer:

this is going by the size guide on my rug ok... 14.0 hh - 5' 3 14.2 hh- 5' 6 15.0 hh- 5' 9 15.2 hh- 6' 16.0 hh - 6' 3 16.2 hh - 6' 6 you asked for it in inches so i hope this helped. This is the sizing on my rug packaging so there you go. Good luck

Horse Rug Sizing

I have a 15.2 hh Fat horse, as round as a pumpkin! He is generally a 60 rug but can fit into a 59! He is also a cob! If you are going to have a couple of rugs, id have the bottom one or 2 as a 59 and the top ones as 60. Also i rekon he would be a cob. But i dont think there is much difference in a 5'9and a 6'0, so if you thought he may fill out or get rounder once you get him than you may be better just going with 6'0!

Measure from the horses centre of chest to his tail and that will be the length of the rug. It does not make much difference height wise because some horses will have longer or shorter backs.

he will need about a 56 or possible 59 depending on the make of the rug. best way is measure from centre of horses chest right round to point of buttock.
