How to Measure a Rug:

Measuring a rug is important as a poorly fitting rug will cause discomfort and rubbing to your horse. The WeatherBeeta rugs are sized in 3 inch increments, if your horse is between sizes then choose the bigger one.

Measure from the centre of the chest around the body and to rear of the quarters to get your rug size.
