Amigo&reg; 1200D Bravo 12 Plus Turnout
Good alternative to the Rambo line
I could not afford multiple Rambo turnouts (my first choice) in different weights, so I deferred to ordering this blanket in both the medium and heavy weights. I keep a Rambo T/O sheet over them at all times. Overall, they fit my 16hh OTTB very well and are high quality blankets. They are not as waterproof as my Rambo T/O, FWIW. I try to stick with Horseware and would buy these blankets again, but would try to get it with a promo or some kind of discount, as they are still not cheap. The necks are interchangeable with Rambo Original T/O's.

I purchased a lite (no fill) Amigo Bravo 1200D Turnout for my horse two years ago, before we spent a summer in Alabama, when she had an amazingly thick winter coat. This year, upon returning up North, I found out quickly that her winter coat didn't want to show up this year, so I ordered the heavyweight version of the blanket I used to use only to keep her dry (not for warmth). It's only been on her a day or so, but I can tell she's comfortable in it. I love this brand of blankets and the free shipping is a plus!
One note: The description says 350g fill, but the bottom of the packaging it came in says 400g fill. No complaints here as it's extra warmth, but perhaps it just depends on what bag you get?
I also ordered the Horseware Interchangeable Liner when I ordered this blanket, but SmartPak kept pushing back the ship date for my horse's size. When it was pushed back further than 10 days past what they originally stated, I cancelled my order and had to re-order from a different website so that I could have it available when I need it. Please be more conservative about your estimated ship date up front, so that the customer can make a more informed decision.

Love, Love, LOVE this blanket!
I have already gotten so many compliments on the blanket and I've only had it for a week. It fits my horse almost perfectly (the necks on blankets are always a little long for my mare) and is fashionable. There is usually something ripped or broken after the first week of wear, and this is still spotless and looks new. The barn owner wants one, too!

Great blanket--did not need much as weather too warm this year but seems to be of good quality and fit.

This is a nice blanket, has kept my horse warm and dry over the winter with no rips or tears anywhere. Fits well, stays in place and true to size per the horseware I already own. I absolutely love that there are no back leg straps. A couple things I would like to see are larger tail flaps and a better system for the neck rug to attach. The way the they are set up allows for wind/elements to blow up underneath the blanket. Weatherbeeta has a long piece of velcro that attaches their neck rugs and they stay laying down. This is a great value on Horseware compared to the Rambo line(in my opinion, the best blanket on the market, but so spendy). I'm not unhappy with my purchase but will most likely go with Rambo or Weatherbeeta next time around. I own the Wug and LOVE it- 2nd year with it, perfect condition still.
