    Question Schneiders Anti-sweat Sheets?

    Anyone have one? I was looking at these:

    http://www.sstack.com/Horse-Blankets...r-header-18878

    http://www.sstack.com/Horse-Blankets...i-Sweat-Sheet/

    The prices seem great and I'm really liking the leg straps.

    But how is the quality? Fit? Does it wick well?

    I have a honeycomb chill chaser from Dover, but the neck is waay too huge and droopy


    ETA: if not Schneiders, any other recommendations, for under $100?

    I have had three of these for over a decade They have probably been washed literally 1000 times or more and are in great shape. I just bought a big one for the old man. I know for a fact it will outlive him. I bought mine at the tack shop at Penn National but here is a link to somewhere else that sells it.

    Thanks! Do they run big or are they true to size?

    Maybe a tiny bit big but shrink a bit so I would say true to size. What I really like about them is they get softer with washing but they stay in great shape. I washed and dried them every few days at the track and they are better than new. I wasted so much money buying those stupid chill chasers that only lasted a few wearings in many cases.

    Oh, Laurierace, thank you for posting this link! Just this weekend I was lamenting being able to find an Irish knit with trim that wasn't navy without going custom, and here you've provided me with exactly that Good to know that they wear very well, too.

    Just get your local "blanket lady" to sew shoulder darts. That's what I did to this exact same sheet, and a few others. For $10 - problem solved.
