    Default ideas for blanket, odd shaped horse

    Ugh, another blanket thread, I know! Does anyone have ideas for a blanket that might fit a 16.2 WB/Tb mare, very uphill, but very narrow through the chest. She measures 77", the 78" Rambo fits her lengthwise but hangs off her chest, the neck opening is WAY too large. The 75" is too small. Tried a high neck Weatherbeater, but it is rubbing just her left shoulder badly, even with a nylon liner. The V-Free Schneiders isn't right either. Thanks for any ideas...

    I have a mare similar to yours and I find that a Horseware Amigo fits her nicely-sits snugly in the neck. The Rhino fits too big like you describe on mine. Rambo I haven't tried (too expensive for me). Good luck!

    You may want to try a Smartpak Thinsulate blanket. The neck opening is quite small so didn't work for my narrow but thicker necked horse but might be just right for your mare, as the opening was set on a little higher.

    Also try a hug blanket. The manufacturer will custom make them to your measurements as well.
