Rugs are mainly used to protect foals from changeable weather conditions and climates. Providing your foal with the best fit, comfort and protection is vital for your peace of mind. The correct rug choice will help to regulate your foal's body temperature and maintain a healthy condition. It is important that the rug fits correctly as a poorly fitted rug can cause rubbing and discomfort. A well fitted rug will keep your horse warm, comfortable and protected. Rug Fitting Guide: Please make sure you choose the correct size rug for your foal. Rugs are usually measured in three inch increments. Measure your pony from the centre of the chest around the body to the rear of the quarters. If your foal is between sizes, choose the bigger size. 1. Lay the rug over your foal's back. If your horse has never worn a rug before, you may need assistance to help hold your pony while you buckle the chest straps. 2. Once you are certain that the rug fits well around the neck, slide the rug into position along your foal's back so that the rug lies flat. If the seam between the tail flap and the rug sits below the top of the tail, the rug may be too big. 3. When fitting a rug with cross surcingles, care should be taken to ensure that the straps of the surcingle cross in the centre of the foal's belly - well forward of the foal's stifle. Again, there should be a hand's breadth between the straps and the foal's body. Washing Instructions: Remove excess dirt with sponge or cloth. Place the rug in a mesh wash bag to contain all straps and buckles. If machine washing, remove all detergent build-up from detergent dispenser. Max temp should be 30C/85F on a gentle cycle using mild soap or a reputable or recommended rug wash such as Nikwax Rugwash in a front loading washer only. Do not use detergents or fabric conditioners as you risk compromising the unique waterproof and breathable coating. Line Dry. Do not tumble dry or dry clean. Do Not use bleach. For best results, re-proof your rug to add durable water repellency and revitalise breathability. Use a reputable and recommended rug proofer such as Nikwax Rug Proof.
