Love this blanket!
I bought this blanket for my stocky quarter horse and it fits him like a dream. Plenty of room in the shoulders to prevent rubs. Thank you Smartpak!

Possibly sewn wrong ? Wanted to Love it ……
I purchased two of the 220 gram blankets . First let me say I loved this blanket online . Both arrived however , the very first one I put on my neurological horse with special needs , I was really very sad at the sight of how very uneven the blanket drop was. One side has a huge difference in the material . Maybe it was a fluke and just poorly sewn wrong? I tried several ways to adjust it to make it work but sadly , I couldn’t achieve a way to make it balanced for it to be safe for her to wear . The blanket is amazingly made tremendously well and crafted with beautiful attention to detail especially in the front shoulder gussets . The padded neck line is such a nice touch . Thickly padded all the way around however , mine was sewn wrong and one side had a huge gap . Overall , the sewing flaws , I’d say this blanket will fit a larger , cresty neck horse or a elderly horse would appreciate the extra padding and longer drop to keep them toasty warm . The three surcingles are very unique but mine were so hard to put on . Again … I think I had a mis - made or a flawed sewing issue blanket . The tail flap is wide , the material is super tightly woven and strong , the hardware is of higher quality and the neckline and hind quarters are nicely padded . Sadly , I need to return both due to the flaws . I wanted to love the blankets . I loved the Ergo Techs , I feel like these are like those but with the added surcingles . Please bring back the size 84 Ergo Tech blankets . The new and ‘ improved ‘ versions just aren’t the same . My mare has neurological issues and I need the Ergo Tech type of neckline / padding . Hopefully if you buy this blanket , you get one with even sides and a neckline that is sewn correctly .,All in all this is a good blanket but not too sure it’s worth the price tag because the matching hood is another $100 . I wouldn’t recommend this blanket for a horse that lives outside 24/7 .
