We're sorry, but certain colors/sizes are sold out and are no longer available.

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

Blankets with features on their mind. VELCRO® brand and double buckle closure reduces sagging and rubs. Rear darts are tailored instead of just folded over. Tough 210 Denier taffeta show coat lining limits coat damage while 240 grams of fiber fill provides plenty of warmth. Adjustable bias surcingles and removable elastic leg straps reduce blanket movement. Rip-stop, waterproof and breathable exterior is 450 Denier.
 

Favorite Features

  • Tailored Shoulder Gussets
  • Double sewn seams
  • Fleece wither for rub prevention
  • Tail Flap

Imported.
 
Please note: Embroidery is recommended on the surcingle. Embroidery on the body of the blanket may interfere with the blanket's waterproofing abilities.

    Big D Sussex Medium Turnout Blanket is rated 4.6452 out of 5 by 31.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great value! I just got my second one of these blankets for my 2.5 year old. Love the fit through the shoulders (securely around neck in front of shoulder/wither), little bit of added length in the body, and the full-coverage tail flap. Quality is very good, the fit is excellent, and great value for money. Works well as a mid-weight turnout blanket. I use mine two on warmblood mares.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent fit and quality My horse has two of these blankets. Most of my friends' horses have them and most recently purchased one for another friend. Love the fit and the quality.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great turnout blanket. He is a 3 1/2 year old quarter horse plus something else and is more on the narrow side. He ruined a stable blanket and we are hoping this one works out better. Tried ashore blanket and it was tight in the shoulders and big elsewhere. The customer service people are terrific. This blanket has a 10 year warranty.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from good blanket This blanket fits my stocky, 15'2 thoroughbred well (the smartpak blankets did not fit). No rubs yet, though we haven't used it much. Looks good and she seems to like it.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this Blanket I would have given this blanket five stars but the batting moved a little when I machine washed it. Bought a second one for my new horse. These blankets sit up higher on the neck than some other blankets so it really stays in place and seems to give them more freedom of movement through the shoulders. My horses have not had shelter of any kind, not even a tree, for the past several years and these Big D blankets have kept them comfortable.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love It! I bought this a couple months ago and absolutely love it. It fits my horse perfect. Isn't terribly heavy but not thin either. The buckles and straps are very durablee, extra padding over the withers and love the color. Its everything I wanted. Very good buy for the price!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this blanket! I bought this about a month ago after having tried and returned (thank you smartpak) many other blankets. It fits my Dutch mare great, and I love the color. I had it embroidered and it looks beautiful. The blanket also looks like it's going to help a lot with a mane rubbing issue she has from previous blankets (well padded and great fit). The only complaint is that the leg straps are pretty short even extended all the way :( Still a great blanket!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Really nice turnout blanket. I really like this blanket. I bought a 78 for my 15.1 paint mare and it fits her great. She gets turned out for 4-6 hours in the winter, as long as the weather is decent. Wearing this blanket, I know that she will stay dry and warm. I prefer Big D blankets, because they last a long time.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from good quality This blanket fits my Quarter Horse mare really well. The straps are easy and quick. All for a cheap price!!! A good blanket.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good if you have a horse that it fits. It seems to be a very good blanket. It is holding up well to a fellow horse pulling on it most of the time! I bought it for my average size Belgian draft in a size 86 (I measured her). The blanket is very nice, however it does not work well for her conformation. She has a large neck so the breast strap is a little tight while the rest of the blanket is slightly on the large side. I forwent the velcro and buckled it as loose as possible to make it a little looser so it is ok, but she can't graze with the top strap buckled. I would not recommend this particular blanket for draft breeds.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Big D blanket for draft horse This blanket is a good value and is a very nice blanket for my large draft. The only problem is that it is a little tight at the neck and the front straps barely can be buckled. My draft is very large especially thru the shoulders, where it is tight. The belly and leg straps fit great.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Really Nice Blanket This is a really nice blanket for my horse, who lives outside. Fits him perfectly, he's an 84". A couple of other horses at our barn have them and the buckles are really nice and it is very easy and accessible.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love Big D! Love the Big D blankets. They are usually not recommended for thoroughbreds, but fit all mine great. Never had a tear or problem with them. I have 2 that are years old and then this new one for my new horse.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Might be a bit long for my 14.1 hand pony, but she needed the 72 for her bus length body!

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Good and Bad news The blanket fits beautifully. However, in the month that I've had it, it has gotten ripped TWICE. It needs to be stronger.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Blanket I have Bought I have used Big D Blankets for decades and have always found them to be excellent fit as well as lasting durability. In Texas during the winter, it gets very cold. The way it covers the hindquarters is great so no wind gets through to freeze my horse.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Buying Another! Love this blanket! I have 3 already, and buying another for this year. I love the Big D because the quarter horse build fits my warmbloods perfectly! Perfect for the really cold nights in Florida!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this blanket I love this blanket for my horse! Just the right weight for our California winters. Can't really attest to it's durability since my horse has only worn it for two weeks now. But it appears very well made. I love the velcro along the front opening under the buckles. And I appreciate the webbed keepers for the extra strap length when the buckles are on the tightest closure.Even better, I know my horse is warm, but he's also not sweating under this blanket.Many of the other horse owners in my barn also use this blanket, so it came highly recommended.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from I bought a second one! I liked this blanket so much as I had bought one for my old horse last year. When I got my new horse, there was no question in my mind as far as what I was getting him for a winter blanket.These fit well, don't shift, keep them warm in our cold NE temps and look brand new after spring cleaning. Well worth the money.
