EquoIQ lighweight rug 50 gr are made to last for a long time and to be used several seasons which also gives the benefit of being economic for the owner of the horse.
It can be fitted individually to each horse thanks to the rows with 3 D-rings at each side of the shoulders. There are 7 cm between each D-ring which creates the ability to vary the shoulder circumference of the rug by 28 cm.
This ensures EquoIQ rugs to have the optimal fit for a wide variety of horses.
Chafing and pressure are common problems for horses who wear rugs many hours a day, so we wanted to develop a rug that will provide the horse with as much freedom of movement as possible even when wearing a rug.
The rugs are easy to put on and to take off with the quick fasteners placed at the sides. The open part below the fasteners ensures that the horse can move as freely as possible.
A common problem while using neck cover is that the horse´s mane can be damaged and will grow less due to chafing. The detachable neck cover has straps along the mane that minimize chafing and irritation from the rug.
Selecing the right size of rug for your horse
Measure the length of your horse from the withers and back to the dock. That length is the correct size needed for your horse. The front flap will be adjusted individually depending on the horse’s shoulder size.
It is really important that the rug is not fastened too tight, because it would limit the horse´s movements and can in some cases cause the fasteners or D-rings to break. The rug will look a bit loose when you put it on correctly and it should not get too tight when the horse lowers its head. This ensures the best comfort for the horse.
Guidelines to choose the correct size:
size 75/85 = miniature pony
size 95/105 = shetlands pony
size 115 = 110 – 120 cm high
size 125 = 120 – 135 cm high
size 135 = 135 – 150 cm high
size 145 = 150 – 165 cm high
size 155 = 165 – 175 cm high
size 165 = 175 cm high and above
Environment – We really care!
EquoIQ rugs are not only ergonomic and promote free movement for your horse.
We care about the environment and want to be a part of a sustainable consumption. Durable and long-lasting rugs mean you do not have to buy new products every season and you will be part of a healthier consumption. We have chosen not to use fleece in our products for two reasons: To minimize plastic particles shredding and to eliminate the risk of static electricity which often occurs when horses have their coats trimmed.
How to maintain and wash your EquoIQ ergonomic turnout rug for horses
Take proper care of your new rug from EquoIQ and you will have a rug that lasts considerably longer than many others on the market today.
To keep the rug waterproof and to avoid that the PU coating enters the environment we recommend rinsing the rug off and carefully brushing away the dirt. Hang it carefully to dry. Of course, you can wash the rug in a washing machine.
Keep your turnout rug waterproof by re-impregnating it regularly.
Selecting the correct outdoor rug for your horses – Cooler is better than warmer!
Horses are not humans and do not feel cold like we do. In fact, overheating is a more common problem than being too cold. If you have a hard time choosing between two different rugs, go with the cooler version.
