    Default Show sheet and stable blanket in custom colors - what are my options?

    It seems like the Blue Ribbon sheets and blankets can be customized to almost any color combination - but are there any other alternatives? I would like to have a show sheet and stable blanket in my barn colors, but I can't seem to find any that don't cost an arm and a leg.

    Also, does anyone out there know the difference between the Blue Ribbon West line and their regular line? The "West" sheet is quite a bit less $$ than the regular sheet.

    TIA

    The Clothes Horse and Integrity Linens are options also, but they'll be more expensive.

    You could contact Brubachers Tackshop up here in Canada. They do lovely custom stuff and their prices seem very reasonable and are nice folks to deal with.

    Clothes Horse clothes are absolutely gorgeous, and personally I think they're worth the price, but they are expensive. I have seen other's Blue Ribbon coolers and they're pretty, but they don't offer the braided/twisted silver piping that I wanted, so I went with Clothes Horse.

    If you like the look of custom, matching horse clothes, here are a couple of ideas: choose a color that is easy to find in "stock" clothing, such as navy blue or hunter green. Work with a custom maker (I'm a Clothes Horse fan) and have them design you a beautiful custom show blanket. Fill in with items that you can buy non custom but will match your custom piece. I have a beatiful custom blanket with plaid Baker piping. Under that, I use an inexpensive, stock Baker plaid sheet. Your other pieces (scrims, coolers) can be stock items to go with your custom pieces if you pick the right basic color.

    I would highly suggest Equitex's new custom blanket line. The quality is great and so are the prices.

    I am actually the sales manager and can come to your barn to go over swatches with you if you want. Pm me if you want more info !

    Jack's makes lovely, cheap blankets in custom colors. I don't have experience with their stable sheets and blankets, but I got a lovely Dennison anti-sweat done with custom piping and trim (for something like only $20 more than the stock color purchase price) 7 years ago that still looks practically new.

    I am obviously impaired, but what is the Clothes Horse's page on FB? I keep getting random "fashion" pages which of course is nothing I'm interested in.

    The Clothes Horse is usually the least expensive option in custom, because it includes all of your trim options!!

    hopefully that works!
