My Rug Addiction!

Prefer to listen to this post?

I love horse rugs, especially when it comes to buying a new horse rug! When I bought Scottie, he came with nothing, so I got to buy him a whole wardrobe. And I constantly get an itch to add to it! In this post I am just going to highlight some of my favourites!

Newmarket Rug

I have always loved the Newmarket fleeces, especially on a nice chestnut thoroughbred. So when I knew I was getting Scottie and knew his rug size, the first thing I bought him was a Newmarket Fleece, despite the fact he would be living out for the next 3-4 months.

Doesn’t he just look fab! Over winter I just had to treat myself to the exercise version…

I also have the matching travel boots… I think he needs the lead rope too! That might have to be next on the list!

Patterned Rugs

But my rug addiction isn’t limited to Newmarket colours. I also love nice patterned ones, such as the Loveson Fly rug! Many of our stable and turnout rugs have some kind of pattern with several having a stripy tartan/tweedy pattern.


I also like to have two of each weight of turnout rug –  just in case. Preferably a darkish colour with a nice pattern or two tone…



I can’t be the only one with a bit of a horse addiction! What’s your downfall when it comes to buying bits for your horse?

    I’m also a rug addict !! My loft is full of brand new Premier Equine and Weatherbeeta rugs. I like to have new ones in stock ready for when they’re needed 🙂

      Haha I bought several heavyweights in the premier equine sales… still in packaging as my thoroughbred seems to actually be a cob, and he doesn’t need thick rugs when he’s clipped in the middle of winter… aha
