Sizing Information

Three things determine the approximate fit of a blanket:

#1 The requirements of your horses neck and shoulders
#2 The length of his back
#3 The drop length which will cover him completely.

Chest to tail measurements are useful for selecting a blanket from within a manufacturer's size range.


How to Measure

(A) Neck sizes are taken completely around the horse's neck from in front of withers along the shoulder line.
(B) Back measurements are taken from in front of withers to base of tail. (This is the standard measurement used in many overseas countries to size blankets instead of chest-to-tail.)
(C) Chest to tail measurements from center of chest to point of buttocks
(D) Drop measurements are taken from 12 inches behind withers to desired length to cover the horses' sides.


Neck Size Ranges
Size Fits Necks Measuring
Medium 47–52"
Large 52–56"
X-Large 54-60"
XX-Large 58-64"
XXX-Large 62-68"
XXXX-Large 66-72"

Our blankets are designed based on statistical information gathered from horse owners like yourself. Blankets with Hug Closures will allow you to adjust the neck by several inches (5-6 inches), so the chest to tail measurement is considerably less critical in determining size.

You can either select a blanket based on traditional sizing, or you can run a tape measure over your horse and select the very best fit.


Our Standard Blanket Sizing

* Sizes FA and FB are ideal for Friesians. FA is ideal for regular size Friesians and FB is for Friesians with larger necks. FA and FB sizes also work well for many Draft and Draft cross horses.

** Size 92 (or even larger sizes up to 100) could be produced for very large (draft) horses.  Available as special orders, to be added to future production runs.  Would need many months lead time, and minimum qty of 3 per size of each type/color Hug to "break even" on production costs.  3 from one customer, or one each from 3 customers.  Alternatively, consider what a single non-Hug US-made custom blanket might cost (if you could find someone able to make one).  If your very big horse needs a Hug, let us know!
