Amigo 600D Hero 6 Turnout
I love Amigo sheets and blankets, they're all I buy anymore! I like the way fit around the neck and shoulders better for the leaner TBs I have. They also stand up to rough housing in the field better than some other brands I've tried and stay put better.

Fits well, stays put even when rolling, great for seasonal weather transitions, very happy with how this brand fits my TWH. Would purchase again.

This is a good sheet for the price. Doesn't slip, wears well and the only reason I needed a new one is her pasture mate decided it was tasty.

You really can't beat this blanket, especially for the price. I like it as much as previously purchased blankets for more than twice the cost. It seems to fit my big Oldenburg nicely and doesn't bind or rub. The only thing I would change is the tail strap, it does keep the sheet in place but I wish it were removable for washing as it does get covered in manure. All in all, a great purchase that I would recommend to others.

Not a good choice
I like the Horsewares brand for several reason. I like the tail flaps for ease of use and I think they hold up and keep their waterproofing longer than the other brands we have in our barn. However I can not say that is true about Amigo. We have tried both the Amigo Mio and the 600 denier turnout sheets. In the rain, the horses are always wet and cold. The water comes in through the neck line and the horses are wet from their shoulders to their withers and across their fronts. They do not breath well so after the rain stops, the horses necks are dry but are still wet under the sheet. I have been told by Smartpak that this is not a good choice for finer bone horses. We had Welsh ponies, Thoroughbreds and Warmblood/Thoroughbred crosses wearing the sheets. I have found that the higher neck Rhinos work very well and have switched the horses to them. We have a heavier boned horse in an Amigo sheet and it is not waterproof at all and so he has to wear a blanket in the rain. I love the price of the amigo but would not buy one or recommend one to anyone again.

You get what you pay for...
Let me preface this review by saying I LOVE Rambo's horse blankets, my old horse had one for YEARS that held up beautifully. After a few years of being horse-less, I'm back in the game. I wanted to get the new horse a Rambo, but as a college student... I can't justify the price tag! So I went with the Amigo- cute colors, more affordable, made by Horseware- sounded great! But after only a couple months of use - it's already ripped. My horse isn't hard on blankets, only rolls occasionally, avoids conflict with herd mates (far too focused on eating!) so I wasn't super concerned about the strength of the nylon. Apparently I should have been :( Time to shell out more money for a stronger blanket.
