Weatherbeeta 1200D FREESTYLE Detach-A-Neck Turnout
This is the nicest blanket I have ever purchased! It fits my mare exactly perfect. HOWEVER: The neck cover seems a bit small. And since WB will not sell the neck cover seperately I am stuck with the medium size when I think the large might fit better. I have an average sized paint mare. But paints are sometimes bulkier in the necks than other breeds. If you have a baroque horse this neck cover will probably not fit right. That being said my complaint is not enough to warrant returning it. It fits wonderfully with contours in all the right places and is really pretty on my mare.

Weatherbeeta is my FAVORITE. blanket brand!
I have last year's Weatherbeeta 1200D Freestyle blanket with neck cover, and these are hands down my favorite blanket brand. I had all of our horses wearing Horseware Ireland Rambos and Rhinos and I have almost completely switched over to Weatherbeeta blankets because I like the more generous fit they give, the durability is good, AND all the extra features of the Freestyle line are fantastic! If you are looking at Weatherbeeta blankets, I recommend checking out the Freestyle line. My favorite features are the Quick clip front (that is adjustable on one side) and the tail flap that provides extra coverage. I think that the wither relief & comfort cuff features are really nice for my boys...I like the fact that the blanket seems like it was designed with your horse's comfort in mind. I've had very good luck with Weatherbeeta blankets holding up against the antics of our youngsters as well. Definitely my preferred blanket brand.

i bought this blanket for my 3 yr old quarter horse mare. Love the quality & durability of it! I bought it a little large so she can grow into it! The neck sleeve is great & has a soft fleece liner.

Let me start off by saying I LOVE WeatherBeeta blankets. My horse runs true to WB 78" blankets but the regular detachable neck is HUGE on him (even rubbed his ears). So, I was hoping, with the comfort cuff maybe the neck would be slightly shorter; wrong! My easy-going, play-hating, and lazy horse was in the field one day with the fleece OVER HIS EYES! I love the blanket but I will definitely be cutting the fleece part off!

I love all my Weatherbeeta blankets
This is my fourth Weatherbeeta I've purchased in the past few years (four horses, not the need to replace it four times!). I really really like how durable they are. I also like all the comfort features like padding on the withers and in the front where the neck comes out of the blanket.
I too was a little confused by the fleece on the detachable neck. I wasn't sure which way it fitted, and was worried about the buckle placement right in the throat. I may end it taking it out as well.
Over all really love the blanket. I got my favorite colors and xc colors of black purple and teal which couldn't have been more perfect. I also dig the cool black metal fastenings.

Another great weatherbeeta blanket
I love the Weatherbeeta blankets, and they always fit my horse perfectly. This is another that seems to be high quality, just as expected. My older horse has arthritis in his neck and this is by far the best midweight blanket with neck attachment on the market for him. The only thing that I'm not happy with is the new fleece neck warmer. The attachment extends out past the waterproof neck cover. While it's a good idea in theory, the fleece material is impractical for turnout. If the fleece gets dirty or wet, is pretty much useless. Plus, I was way too worried about the tight clip getting caught around his neck or somehow creating a hazard. I ended up cutting the entire fleece attachment off. Without that, it's a great blanket!!
