Fleece & Wool
Why do you need a cooler rug?
A cooler rug can be used to avoid your horse getting cold after a training. Fleece and wool rugs keep your horse comfortable and have moisture wicking properties, so your horse will dry fast but won’t catch a cold when the temperatures are low. You can use a fleece or wool rug during transport when an outdoor or stable rug would be less suitable.
What do you need to take into account when shopping for a cooler rug?
That depends on your wishes. If you want to use a cooler rug during warming up and cooling down, it’s best to choose a rug with detachable surcingles. If your horse is clipped, we advise a rug with a (detachable) hood, so you can keep him warm at the neck area also. At DocHorse.com, you can find thin fleece rugs, but also thick double bonded fleece rugs and wool rugs.
