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'!).

Designed for superior fit with uncompromising quality and construction.

Keep your horse warm and dry with the SmartPak Deluxe High Neck Turnout blanket! This blanket includes all of the great features of the SmartPak Deluxe Turnout blanket but with a higher neck that offers extra protection against the elements and winter drafts.

    SmartPak Deluxe High Neck Turnout is rated 4.6409 out of 5 by 220.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Terrific turnout! I bought the sheet version of this turnout a year ago and I liked it so much that when it came time to replace my gelding's worn-out heavyweight turnout this year, the SmartPak high-neck turnout was an obvious choice. With more adjustability through the chest and deep shoulder gussets, this blanket allows my high-withered, retired TB more freedom of movement than his old Rambo wug did. It hasn't rubbed him anywhere, and the fit is deep enough to cover his sides and belly. (For reference, I ordered a 78" for my 1,050-pound, 15.3h TB). He is turned out 24/7 with access to his stall, and I am pleased to say that the turnout has held up very well in these conditions. It's a great high-quality alternative to pricier wugs, and I will definitely consider getting one for my other horse when the time comes to replace her blankets, too.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Blanket I have had this blanket about 2week. So far I'm pretty happy with it. The only bad thing is the white piping on it started coming off already :( also the nylon and the blanketstarted ripping where the clasp is on the chest.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect fit Other blankets rub on my horse's mane, this one fits the whole body perfectly and the coverage on the neck seems to eliminate a rubbed out mane. Time will tell, but I love the fit and quality.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good fit. I bought this for my short backed, narrow shouldered, long legged TB. It fits nicely, doesn't pull too much on his shoulders. Haven't had it long enough to talk about wear and tear but I imagine Smartpak will back their product should there be any problems.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Purchase! I bought this blanket for my narrow half-Arabian and it fits great! The high neck keeps pressure off her withers and helps hold in body heat. The clasps and buckles hold the blanket together really well, and overall the blanket just feels like it was made really well. I feel like it fits pretty true to size, maybe a little smaller in the back (around the tail) to account for the extra length on the neck. I'm very happy with this purchase!

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Well made This was the only high neck medium weight blanket I could find. It's wonderful in every way except it is cut very high at the base of the neck and so it pulls when the horse puts his neck down. This looks uncomfortable for him while grazing and eating on the ground.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice features, fits well and durable so far Have had this a few weeks and am really happy with it. Fits my TB/Holsteiner well, no rubs. The high neck is a nice feature.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Overall the construction is good with a few exceptions. There is no velcro on the chest so despite the buckles and hooks, it gaps open. The leg straps do not stay at the length you put them, they constantly slide down to the maximum length.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from perfect fit! I haven't had this blanket for very long but love it so far! A 78 fits my high withered 16 hand gelding perfectly. He seems very comfortable in it so far. Definitely worth it.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from snap broke in two days! Seemed like a great blanket but I immediately noticed the snaps that have been consistently troublesome in the past, and sure 'nuff--within TWO DAYS one of the chest snaps broke apart like a cheap toy.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent blanket I bought this blanket for my OTTB and love it. My favorite feature is the snap front buckles which are so much easier than traditional buckles to get on and off. With a little help from the SmartPak staff, I got the right size. Fits my mare perfect. Great fit, durable high quality, and a great price. Happy customer!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice Blanket. Good Fit. Hunter green and burgundy have been my horse accessory colors since I was about 12 years old, but it's difficult to find things in that color combination these days. I was excited to find this blanket.I have a small Thoroughbred mare (about 15.1 and a smidge) who wears a 75 in Weatherbeeta and Horseware products but sometimes a 76 or 78 in other brands. I went for the 75 in the medium weight (she's not clipped so it's mostly for particularly cold/wet nights) and it was definitely the right choice. The blanket fits her very well. I like the little bit of elastic in the belly surcingles and the multiple fitting options on the chest. I do think it might be snug in the chest for a horse who is wider than she is.So far my mare is doing very well in this blanket. She is not hard on her clothing and does not currently live with a blanket destroyer so that definitely helps. And she looks pretty in green.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Thought I it was love on Day 1. I was wrong I bought this on 11/24/14. It looked and felt great. It looked and felt great yesterday. And if I had gotten the request to review from Smartpak yesterday I would've either posted a very postive review or skipped it altogether. Then my Barn Owner tagged me in a picture this morning...Today, 12/15/2014, there is a giant rip on the haunches of the blanket. In the 3 weeks since I purchased this, it has probably been worn less than 6 or 7 nights due to unseasonably cold weather. The field is clear of debris and there are no nails at this height on a 16.3 horse so there is no reason for destruction of this magnitudeThere are 3 of the Smartpak Deluxe blankets in my barn (the other two are medium weights) that have all been purchased this winter. Mine ripped, the buckles are falling off one of the medium weight that was purchased last week and the 3rd is already showing signs of wear.I am sure that the warranty request I put in will be honored because Smartpak customer service is awesome. But unfortunately, these turnouts are not.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great fit and durable! I bought the sheet first, loved it so much I bought the medium and heavy weight and am selling my old ones. My guy normally wears a 78, so got the sheet in that size, wish I had gone up to an 81 which I did on the medium and heavy weight, just gives a little more room in the shoulder and high neck. I have used Shires, Ramobo's, Northwinds and others, but love this style the most. My Shires full neck blanket rubbed the mane out where the blanket and neck seam met, this high neck does not do that at all and still protects the neck and gives more protection from the rain and adds warmth. I highly recommend any of these turnouts!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from The perfect blanket I couldn't have made a better decision than to purchase this blanket for my body sore OTTB. I was dreading this winter when my thin-skinned, short haired TB would have to be blanketed for the cold. I decided to try a high neck blanket to relive some pressure on his withers, and it was the best decision I've made for him. Within a week he was visibly more comfortable, and within 2 he was barely sore. The blanket stays in place and hasn't shifted an inch. Hardware is great, stitching is great, and the fabric isn't HEAVY like in some other brands.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great fitting blanket for those hard to fit horses This blanket was the right choice for a difficult to fit horse. I sought guidance from a SmartPak rep and she could not have been more helpful and importantly, accurate!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent blanket! Excellent price! I called and got great help on which blanket best fit my needs as far as price and needs of horses. Blankets came in about 7 days and I was very happy with what we chose! Blankets fit great and I have very different size horses, so was worried at least one would not work. All fit very good. Horses seem to be very comfortable also:). One of my horses actually lines up behind the other when blanket time comes.... I have to wonder if it's the blanket.... He didn't do this with his old blanket:)

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from So cozy! Bought this blanket last month after we leased a pony and the blankets he came with were in pretty rough shape. This is so cozy and the high neck is a great feature providing extra warmth from the wind. I think this medium is warmer than the heavy rambo he came with!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful anf Functional! I just got this blanket out of the box and though sadly I have to send it back because I accidently ordered a size too small. I am very impressed with this blanket and am so excited to re-order it so by gelding can finally wear it. I would definitely recommend this blanket and next time I'm in need of a new blanket I know what I'm going to order.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from runs big but built well Bought this for my nearly 18hh 4YO TB who measures an 81" but has that tall, thin TB build. First purchased an 81" sheet and it was HUGE; may fit a larger breed that fills it out more perfectly. It was hanging off his haunches by inches, way too big. I sized down to 78" and it fits very well. He has only been wearing it a couple of weeks but so far it seems durable. He is turned out with 2 other horses and will likely give the blanket a good "test". Only issue so far is that a portion of the white piping trim near the front closure started coming off, but I trimmed it with scissors and it doesn't seem to be a problem any longer. Thank goodness SmartPak has free shipping both ways for sized items!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Exactly what I hoped for! I received this blanket today and immediately put it on my horse, as our nights are down in the 20s and low 30s now. The customer service rep recommended a 72, given the measurement of my 15.1 Trakehner/Arab gelding, and it fit perfectly. I rated it a good only because I have not had it long enough to judge durability, but as far as looks, quality of fill and workmanship, buckles and straps, this blanket is everything it is advertised to be, and the young lady who answered my questions could not have been more helpful and pleasant. I could not be more pleased.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Gorgeous alternative to pricier options! Can't say enough great things about this turnout. I have a high withered, narrow chested 16H Arab and this fit him great. Plenty of room in the shoulders without being loose. Love the high neck feature which wasn't so stiff it "cut him off" when he had his neck up. He typically wears a 72 and that was the perfect length for him. Color and durability are great. IMO the only difference between this turnout and the Rambo WUG is the price and the hardware. The hardware on the Rambo seemed heavier and more durable. However, if you're looking for a more affordable alternative to the WUG style, I would definitely go with this one. I ended up returning this and buying the Rambo because of the Rambo warranty. I think if SmartPak offered their 10 year warranty plan with this turnout as they do with their Ultimate Turnout I would have made a different choice.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from I love this sheet!! I have had this sheet for about 3 weeks now. I love it! I have been a "Horseware ONLY" person for the past 7 years with multiple horses because they have been the only kind that don't cause rub marks or bind in the chest. I decided to give this one a chance because of reviews I saw and I'm glad I did! I haven't had it long enough to attest to it's durability, but it fits my TB perfectly. He's been wearing it almost constantly for the past 3 weeks and even though he's freshly body clipped, he has no hair loss or blanket rubs even beginning. The waterproofing is great as well. I will be buying more of these for my other horses when needed!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Well made. Nice product. Liked the neck a lot I bought this for my little quarter horse and it didn't fit him - it pulled across his chest and shoulders. The shoulder gussets needed to be 4-6 inches further forward and start an inch higher to fit him nicely. I returned it.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice Quality Heavy Weight Blanket This was a very nice, well made heavy weight blanket but it did not fit my 16.2 big bodied Oldenburg gelding. The length (drop) was too short at the chest and barrel although the length from front to back was good. Sadly had to return and search for a style that might fit my guy better.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great blanket for the price I bought two of these blankets and am very happy with them. One is for a senior horse with prominent withers. I am pleased to say that this blanket fits him very comfortably and does not rub him at all. The other blanket is for a young playful horse. His blanket also fits him well and does not shift when he romps around the paddock. I wish the blankets were an inch or two longer on the sides and offered the leg arches of some of the similar styles, but I am being picky. This is a great blanket for the price.
