Blanket Fitting

Measuring for Horse Clothing

When measuring a horse for proper blanket size and fit, it’s always best to do so with the help of a second person. We also recommend measuring your horse with a flexible tape measure – to ensure the most accurate measurement possible.

Start by standing your horse square on a flat, even surface. Place the tape measure at the center of the horse’s chest. With the tape held in place at the chest, run it along the side of the horse’s body until you reach the point of the horse’s rump. Do not measure around the rump. For the most accurate measurement, keep the tape as straight as possible along the horse’s side without following the contours of the horse’s body.
