  • Do not tumble dry!

Storing

It is so easy to take the horse rug off and throw it in the corner on the floor of the tack room! However, there are other ways of storing your rug that help keep it looking top quality for longer, that take minutes!

  • Use rug racks that can help keep the rug out straight and off the floor reducing dust, mud and spiders!
  • Simply hang it over their stable door
  • Fold them into a pile on a table in the tack room so they are off the floor where they can be trampled on.

Don't forget to shake it off after use as this can avoid dust building and may even shake off some dried on mud!
