    Default Warmblood Turnout Blankets

    Most blankets that I see top out at size 84, my horse just fits these, and is still growing muscle. Is there a brand or company that sells larger? I have found some 87 but that is too big. Thanks in advance for any information you can provide!

    Have you looked into the Shires brand?

    Saratoga Horseworks makes a "WB" cut in most of their garments. It's not on their website so you have to call. My Draft x mare needs an 88 WITH the WB cut www.horseworks.com

    Weatherbeeta makes a freestyle blanket (extra roomy), perhaps an 84 would fit your horse.
    Mine wears an 87, but I can use an 84 weatherbeeta in the freestyle.

    Eous makes nice roomy blankets well worth looking into.

    Sizingwise to give you a visual

    This guy wears an 87 in most blankets, it's just that Weatherbeeta runs large lengthwise.

    Well, he clearly needed a size 90 .

    Like JB mentioned, Shires is a great brand to consider too, equestriancollectians carries most of the range :

    I use an 84 Amigo on my big boy. Plenty of room in the shoulder and doesn't rub.

    Amigo XL seem to work great for the wider guys.

    Absolutely agree. Blankets for my size 87 17.2+ WB are always way too short on the sides. So needless to day, I am thrilled with the extra length of the Amigo XL's. Also loved the price, compared to the high-end Rambos. Shires had a weird fit on my guy and gave him shoulder and wither rubs.

    I feel your pain, it is difficult to blanket the big ones!

    Horsewear used to sell the Rambo in an XL but discontinued it and replaced it with the Amigo XL... The only thing I didn't like about the Amigo XL is the color choice - Otter green... I have a few Rambos in black and love the way they fit but cannot get them anymore....

    Blanket manufacturers don't seem to have a lot of color choices in any of the XL's.

    I just ordered from SStack a Big Fella blanket in a 90. They offer many different sizes..... I haven't received it yet but when I do I can let you know how the quality and fit is...

    I have a Shires blanket and it fits my guy funny and rubs his shoulders too...

    It is difficult to fit these type of horses not too many blanket choices out there...

    I am also a HUGE fan of EOUS. They are super nice blankets and the customer service is crazy nice and helpful. They will walk you through all of their blankets and which have the longer drops of wider fits. They have been the only thing I've found that fit my big guy.

    We have the big Amigo too and it is so great! One client had a 17.3 long bodied, LLLOONG shoulder TB and after selling him got a Belgian WB and it fits her great. I think the TB was an 84 and it was a bit too roomy. I did not measure her but she is bigger bodied though shorter in height and I just threw it on her and it fits with room to fill out. And its easy to put on and off and seems to take a beating.
