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

    SmartPak Deluxe High Neck Turnout Blanket is rated 4.6264 out of 5 by 174.
    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.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good fit, great quality I'm going to start out by saying I have a 17.3 roach backed full bodied chestnut Oldenburg mare to give you an idea of what I've got to deal with when picking out blankets. Basically she's tough to fit and picky...The quality of this blanket is top notch; I noticed that immediately. Also, with the warrantee I can't think of a better sheet on the market, either in this price range or jumping up another $100.It fits her well and I appreciate the leg straps being wide and stretchy. She's turned out for the entire day but I fully expect it to hold up to her paddock shenanigans.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from My wonderful Guy loves this Turnout Because of large, long shoulder and chest muscles from carriage driving combined with nice withers, my horse often has fitting issues, and clearly tells me which blankets he does not enjoy. He obviously Likes this one. Never an unhappily turned ear or a grumpy look when this one comes into the stall. His withers are comfortable now.... For me, the velcro at the chest is not generous enough in size, oddly placed and pretty much, ineffective. But that is the only negative I have with it. I am very pleased with it in every other respect. And it looks great!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product I love this blanet. Fits my large warmblood and the high neck design is awesome is the cold winter months.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice blanket I've only used this blanket for a little while, but I'm pleased with how it fits my Quarab and the quality of the blanket. The feature that sold it me on it was the high neck. I live in the Pacific Northwet (err.Northwest!) :) and wanted to have something that would keep the rain out while not having a tight fit around the shoulders. Works just fine so far.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect fit Extremely happy with this blanket. The higher neck is The biggest plus. I am purchasing another in heavier weight for winter.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great fitting blanket! Tommy says he loves the fit and feel of this new blanket! It fits my pointy withers well and still leaves ample room for my muscled butt! =) I love the high neck to keep me warm agains those nasty winds! Thanks for fitting a hard to fit TB!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great blanket Love the easy front closure and the generous sizing. The elastic leg straps aren't bad like other reviews suggest. My horse always rolls and takes of running and bucking when turned out and i have no problems with the blanet staying in place. The only thing that could be improved is the velcro in the front, it just doesn't stay closed. I have always had rambo rugs and these are just as nice. I absolutely love the blanket (and the price!). I am very happy with my purchase.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good quality and toasty warm I bought this in October to get our boys through the fall "in between" days and I love these blankets!! They are very high quality and the high neck is great for those 40-50 degree days (ours are all clipped). The front clips make these a snap to put on. Love them!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Holds Up to the Wyoming Wind!! I have a 14.3 hand Arabian and he is 6 years old. Which means he is still growing in the chest department. On top of that and having high withers and a sloping shoulder, lead me to the high neck feature of this blanket. He is very active and this blanket does stay in place well. I love where the gussets are placed as well. All of the reviews state that this blanket runs a bit large and after a great conversation with a customer service rep, that all know their products, I decided on the horse instead of the pony and am glad that I did! So far I have only had to use this once in a light snow/rain storm with 30 mile an hour winds, the blanket did great!!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from looks good haven't yet used it, but it looks like it will keep my old paint gelding from the weather. We live in northern Michigan, with severe winter weather and my horses are in/out in all kinds of weather. The high neck will help keep him warm.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice quality! My TB looks so handsome in his new turnout. Nice quality hardware and seems to fit him well. Runs a little bit on the large side.
    Date published: 2014-10-23
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from The blanket is really first quality. Everything about it is perfect, except the sizing does not fit my mare---the 81 too small, the 84 too big. So I have had to return it. When I get my new horse, you can be assured I will purchase one of your blankets---I especially like the High Neck feature--- it really helps, especially with older horses who tend to be arthritic.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect fit and perfect price! I haven't had the chance to use this in cold weather yet, but the fill is spectacular. Not too much for those Southern temperatures, but enough that I won't be layering constantly. I can already tell this is going to be a durable blanket for my ultra-active warmblood mare. Her pasture mate loves to rip them apart, but I suspect she won't have such an easy time with this one. When I tried it on, I was worried about it being snug on her potato-like build, but it has plenty of movement through the shoulder and hip. I am very pleased!!
