    Default Weatherbeeta blanket people: Freestyle or Original design for Orican?

    Am considering getting an Orican for my Arabian. The Freestyle features sound great, but I see they still have the original design for sale, also, with the different shoulder gusset, etc. Any opinions from the seasoned WB blanket users out there ??? Which one is best for an Arabian type conformation?

    I like the freestyle, it's roomier then the regular. I guess it depends on your horses build and how you want it to fit.

    A 2nd vote for the Freestyle. They seem to fit better.

    I like the Freestyle design. They fit everything. I've used mine on a very TB-shaped horse and a chunky-built WB and it fits both well. I boarded with a woman who used one on an Arab mare, and it fit her well too.

    Thanks for all your help, everyone. I'm going to try the Freestyle.
