Amigo 1200D Bravo 12 Turnout
Good Turnout Sheet
This turnout sheet runs a little bit big, but it has held up well and kept my guy dry in the NC rain.

This blanket fits our two small horses well, and has proven to be very durable.

Love Horseware Products
I bought this Amigo 100gm 1200 D blanket to replace a Rambo that lasted 9 years. I love all Horseware products because they are easy to put on (no leg straps needed), they stay on, and they last for a long time. These do run a little big compared to other brands. I think the four stars for durability would be five if the alpha horse in my herd didn't have razor sharp teeth.

Reliable and best breathable blanket
I have used Horseware blankets for years, but really like the quality and value of the Amigo 1200D! An excellent blanket for about $150 is exceptional! It runs a little large, which is great so it's not tight on my horses who are a little chunky, but it doesn't hang on the thinner ones either. The quality that I like most that I haven't found in other blankets is it's breathability. This time of year it gets quite cold at night, but can get a little warm late in the afternoon. It's a hassle to take the blankets off all the horses for two or three hours and have to put them back on. But with the Amigo, they don't overheat or sweat. I've used four other brands of good blankets, but the horses always sweat in those if the temperature gets above the mid 50's for a couple hours.

Already ripped in less than 3 weeks.
My Arabian ripped his previous SmartPak blanket, so I had to rush and order him a new one because winter temperatures and weather still have not left this area yet. I decided on this one (mostly because the previous blanket he had was not expected to be back in stock until the summer), but this only had a higher denier quality, and I was hoping it would stand up to my Arabian's love for playing in the field. Two days ago he ripped this blanket as well, and I have only had it for about 18 days. He also has not worn it that often because there was a warm spell that came through. The rip is not too bad, and it can be patched, but I am not impressed given that he did not wear it that much, and there is already a sizeable hole down the side. In Amigo's defense, my Arabian is 3 and still in his playful/nosey stage, but I'd expect a 1200D blanket to last more than 18 days with even less days being worn and exposed to pasture play and weather. I will not be ordering a new one because warm weather should be coming soon, but I guess maybe I should try the blanket with the SmartPak 10 year indestructible guarantee. On a positive note, the blanket did fit very well. I got the black and red with his name embroidered on it. It looks very striking, especially with his red plaid halter. The blanket is a bit long on him, but it is a horrible fit. He is the same size as my pony, but about 3 or 4 inches taller, so it's hard to find something that is 100% perfect.

Great fit and great price
My warmblood mare has worn the medium weight version of this blanket through two winters so far and the blanket is still in perfect condition, with the exception of the velcro in the front that stopped closing well during the first winter of use. My horse measured for a size 75" and the fit is really great. I love that the blanket doesn't rub her shoulders and I never worry about it being out of place after she rolls. Having had Rambo blankets in the past, I can say that the materials used for the Amigo blankets don't seem to be quite as nice but with such a considerably lower price tag it's really one of the best blankets available.
