    Default Shire's Wool Newmarket Quarter Sheet

    I'm looking to buy a Shire's wool newmarket quarter sheet. The Rambo polar fleece is not cut to fit my horse and I've always loved the wool ones (no cut out). Plus, I don't like the static electricity with polar fleece. I've Googled it and there are many places that carry them. Does anyone have one and where did you get it? How is the sizing measured? It looks like the sizes are 48, 54, 57 and 60. Thanks in advance!

    It is measured from the front edge to the back edge.
    They can be purchased here; http://shop.shiresequestrian.com/pro...9319.98558.0.0

    You would normally turn back the front corners at 90 degs under the girth.
    I have had one for many years and bought it in the UK. They are manufactured there by many companies out of Witney Goldenrod wool.

    Thank You Equibrit. Exactly the information I was looking for. Do you have the Shires or the one from the UK?

    I don't have either, I bought one from a tack shop whilst in the UK. Shires is a UK company, and the exercise rug is a traditional piece of gear for exercising racehorses in the colder weather.http://www.horseandhound.co.uk/galle...11+Ch+copy.jpg They are made by all and sundry, out of Witney wool from Earlys. http://www.treehouseonline.co.uk/product/26
