As riders and online shoppers, we know it can be tough to buy a new bridle or pair of boots without trying them on. That's why we moved the fitting room to your living room (or barn)! From breeches to blankets, if you or your horse can try it on, you can return it, free! Just use the pre-paid return label included in your order within 60 days from the purchase date. And of course, please make sure the item is in like-new condition with original packaging (we said 'fitting room', not 'war room'!).

Why We Love This

This is the blanket that inspired it all! The Rhino SmartPak Collection Wug Turnout was created exclusively for SmartPak by the experts at Horseware Ireland for the most fashionable and functional turnout around. Rhino’s exclusive Barrier Technology means that even if your horse manages to tear through the tough 1000 denier polyester shell, the waterproof protection remains intact.

Favorite Features

  • 1000 denier polyproylene outer protects the waterproof and breathable barrier layer underneath the blanket
  • Shine enhancing polyester lining with thermo-bonded fiberfill for longer lasting heat retention
  • The soft, anti-static microfiber lining keeps your horse feeling as good as he looks
  • Antibacterial properties in the lining keep the blanket fresh
  • Surefit neck design eliminates pressure on the withers
  • Front leg arches for added freedom of movement
  • Patented V-Front closure wraps around the point of the shoulder, keeping the blanket light across the chest and relieving pressure on the shoulders

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good rug! I don't think it's as good as a Rambo but it also costs a lot less money. It is holding up however.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Regretfully did not hold up AT ALL. It is with great regret that I have to post a negative review of this product. Historically I have loved Horsewear products but this was a complete disappointment.The positives:FIT: Excellent. This is the only blanket I've found that does not rub my narrow and thin-skinned TB. Most blankets (such as Weatherbeta) produce terrible wither and shoulder rubs. Not the case here; no rubs to be found. This blanket even fit a fatty with ease.FUNCTION: Excellent. These blankets kept my horses warm and dry while on 24 hour turnout in quite inclement conditions. The horses preferred to stay outside and did not seek the comfort of their shelters very often; it did not matter. They were warm and dry in subzero conditions and wet/sideways rain. The breathability is excellent. One late winter day the weather was warm and sunny so I took off the blankets only to be caught by surprise by a cold, sideways, wet rain. By the time the blankets got put on the horses they were cold and shivering. Within a few minutes they were no longer cold and within an hour they were all dry and toasty under their blankets. How? I don't know. I'll leave that up to science, but the technology here is excellent.The negatives:DURABILITY: I read other reviews that talked about how these didn't hold up to playing horses, etc. Since my horses are turned out in pairs and none of them are young enough to still "play rough", I thought I could risk it. Unfortunately, not so. Of the three blankets that I ordered at the same time, and used for one season, this is what happened:1. Size 72. Developed small tears along the INSIDE of the blanket lining along the binding. Also a very large tear on the INSIDE of the lining that allowed a large amount of fill to escape. The lining is paper thin and will snag/catch/tear very easily. I do not even know how this happened.2. Size 72. Appears to be in overall good condition. Washed with RAMBO wash according to manufacturer directions…. after removing from the washer however, the fill/padding inside the blanket had bunched terribly. Now the horse will have areas of 2x the fill and areas of no fill. This is unacceptable.3. Size 69. This blanket appears to be in overall good condition, however it has faded TERRIBLY. Neither of the other two faded, and the horses are all turned out the same time, so I have no idea how this happened. Obviously this does NOT impact the functionality of the blanket but I thought it worth mentioning. I'm also afraid to wash it because of what happened with blanket #2.So if you have a horse that doesn't play rough/isn't going to snag the blanket, and you want to risk the lining tearing (!!!) and don't mind fading and don't plan to wash your blanket, this is THE ONE FOR YOU! I'm sorely disappointed in the quality of the product as the design is super. I am very upset that I spent a large amount of money on blankets that only lasted one season.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent value This is second rhino sheet I have purchased. The front fit is great for a variety of equine shapes and the horses don't sweat even if it warms up more then expected while the sheet is on. The sheet is as durable as the many Rambo wugs that I also own Would not hesitate to recommend

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quality Blanket I bought this blanket about a month ago. My horse had a wither rub and all my other blankets were irritating it more. This blanket I originally ordered in my horses normal 78 size....way too big...I order the next size down 75 and it was perfect. He is a 15.2 hand quarter horse..who is average bulkiness. This blankets seems like good quality...I usually purchase Schneiders blankets which I really like as well...and this compared great to Schneiders other than a little more expensive..but having the ability to return ship it for free and order the next size seamlessly, was worth the extra price.!!!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Such a nice turnout! Great quality, super fit, easy to use features - I'm loving this sheet. We are having the wettest March on record here in the Pacific NW, but my pony comes in dry every night.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great turnout! This turnout in size 78 is perfect for my 15.2 Appendix mare. She wears a size 78 Rambo Optimo during the winter, which is a bit generous in sizing. The Rhino size 78 fits her perfectly. The only thing I would change is the tail cord. On the Rhino Wug it is uncovered canvas, which gets very dirty. I have ordered the Rambo plastic coated tail cord in size 40 cm to replace the one that comes with the Rhino Wug.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Really great rain blanket This is the third one I have purchased. Older ones are still wearing well. Just bough a new one for my new little arab. It fits great, stays on well through horsing around and rolls, and keeps them dry all day.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great blanket I really like this blanket. It fits my Cd Sporthorse with prominent withers without any rubs. Not sure on durability but waterproof and staying on well so far.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Looks great! Overall the blanket is great. My 16 hand friesian normally wears a 78 but had to exchange for an 81 because it was too tight in the shoulder. The 81 fits better. I really like the high neck to hopefully keep out the rain and snow. I wish it came with two tail straps to cross between his legs (especially at this price point). It looks great on him and the smartpak logo is subtle.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Blanket! I bought this blanket a little over a month ago. My horse loves it! I am especially pleased with the the blanket features like the snap front closure, double Velcro closure, and leg arches...all feature which I have come to learn are a must have for me! Most importantly though, the non-static feature has truly been as advertised, and greatly appreciated by my sensitive TB.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this Turnout! I love everything about this turnout: the front v clips, the higher cut neck and none of those irritating leg straps. I have this one in light and medium for all 4 of my horses!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Survived a horse that destroyed the indestructible So far so good! My OTTB destroyed 2 SmartPak indestructible blankets. So far he hasn't had any problems even though he and his buddies shredded his blanket liner (don't know how that happened without the turnout not beingdestroyed). Quality blanket!

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Wonderful fit I bought this a months ago. It fit so well and I was super excited, until yesterday when my horse ripped it. Not good for a horse hard on blankets and who loves to play in the field! Smart Pak was excellent in handling the return.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect fit I got this heavy Duty turn out rug for a foster mare from a local rescue society. It was a perfect fit for this extremely hard winter and Patches is now snug as a bug in a rug! Easy to put on and take off, which keeps my fingers working well, too.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Great design, not durable at all! Bought this blanket (heavyweight) last year, and with such a mild winter, only used it about a dozen times.I pulled it out just this month (January) and have used it for two weeks, collectively, on the single digit days. There are teeth marks and small tears all over the outside shell, the lining has an 18inch rip in it as of this morning, and I am sorry I ever wasted $200 on the thing. My office window overlooks their field, so I literally watch them all day--they are not an aggressive or wild field. My actual Rambos, which have been in consistent use in that field since September haven't a scratch on them.This first time I experienced this with the Rhino line, I thought it was a fluke. Now I know better. Don't waste your money.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great fit over shoulder, very durable material I bought this for my "thicker" set 14.1 h pony in medium weight for him to wear in the Northwest with a body clip. It is the perfect weight; he is warm in it but has never been sweaty. The fit over the shoulder is great, even with his broad build. As a pony it comes down a little far on his legs, but I like this with a clip. It has been rained on for about a solid week now and he is warm and dry!

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Did not hold up Bought this rug a month ago because I love the previous experience with SmartPak. I have a 4 year old OTTB who I have rescued and needed her to be extra warm while she adapts to her retirement. I noticed a rip near the seam by her tail. Not sure how this happened but after a month, it is disappointing.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from absolutely love this blanket I wanted to upgrade one of my horses to a high neck blanket, and Rhinos/Rambos have long been my favorite blankets. The horse in question is chestnut with a big white face and 4 high white legs, so I was worried the checkered pattern might look too "busy" on such a chromey horse, but instead it looks absolutely fabulous. It does tend to shift a little to one side on her, but I think it might be because of the way she walks or stands. We got hit with a brutal cold snap, and she was already shivering by the time I got home. Checked her 10 minutes after putting the blanket on, and she was toasty warm underneath, and stayed that way for the next several days.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from best quality and price! This is the best quality and fit and ease of use of any blanket I've ever purchased.The front closure is so easy to snap! I like the way it really envelopes the horse and keeps the wind out on these cold, blustery days. We have a low temp of 8 degrees tomorrow morning when we are used to the 50's. So very glad my 18 year old gelding has this on tonight!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Love the fit, but it bunches in places I really like this blanket, it fits great (and true to size), and I love the high neck. But I found it bunches in places, most of the time at the neck part, almost as if the top layer of the blanket is bigger than the rest of the blanket. I really don't mind it and it doesn't affect usability or quality so I wouldn't mind buying another!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love This Turnout!! Buying this medium-weight turnout was an easy decision. Last year I needed to replace an unlined turnout and purchased the Rhino SmartPak Wug for my 16.3 OTTB mare.  It fit her perfectly, as does the medium weight, and is an exceptionally nice material.  I fully expect the medium weight to perform as nicely in terms of her comfort and durability.  It also washes up nicely.  The quality I expect from SmartPak and Horseware!  If we keep having these ridiculous cold spikes, there could be a heavy weight in her future; won't need to review/study other blankets, just call and order another Rhino SmartPak Wug!!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fits Great! I bought this about a month ago for a horse that is hard to fit--he is long and narrow. This blanket fits beautifully--it covers the tail, tucks nicely under the belly, and keeps the wind and cold out with the high neck. The hardware is strong and the blanket has held up nicely with full time wear in an outdoor run. I have the matching sheet, and they look great together.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Really like this blanket I bought the wug style blanket because the regular style blanket was rubbing the top of my horses neck. He seems to be very comfortable in it and I like that it covers part of his neck as well. I am not sure that there is sufficient fill in this blanket for warmth if the horse had a full clip.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very nice blanket Last winter I purchased the heavy weight. It held up very well and fit my skinny thoroughbred very well. No more blanket rubs. He needed a new sheet so I purchased another one in a lighter weight. I love this line of blankets.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Super Nice Sheet I have had my eye on this sheet for over a year, and I finally broke down and purchased one for each of my horses. I already own several Horseware blankets and was thrilled to see that they collaborated with SmartPak on this one. It is the nicest looking blanket at my barn. It is very lightweight and fits well.My Quarter Horse always wears a 75, and this one fit with a little room to spare. If his back were not a tad long, it probably would have been too large. While a little roomy, it still conformed to his body well while he cavorted around in it. My Thoroughbred always wears a 78, and this one fit him perfectly. He has a broad barrel and a roached back; but even with his odd conformation, Horseware always fits him well, and this sheet did not disappoint.One thing I did notice about it is that the fabric makes a slight "crinkling" sound. If you have a horse who does not do well with noises, you might have to desensitize him a bit. It is a very slight sound, but my Quarter Horse had to check it out once I had it on him.I am glad I purchased these sheets and hope they prove to be as durable as my other Horseware purchases. If they wear as well as they look, I cannot lose.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great fit!!! I just received this sheet 2 weeks ago but I am very happy with it! I was having a hard time finding a sheet to fit my mare and this does perfectly. It seems very well made. I would definitely recommend this sheet!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from great value I love Horseware turnouts and I have purchased a number of them over the years.  There are less expensive options but due to their fit and durability  I rarely buy anything else for my herd of Irish Draughts and Kerry Bog ponies.
