WeatherBeeta Summer Sheet Combo – Bright Spots for Amira in a 6’6 and Lavender Check for Bailey in a 6’6, both purchased from Horseland at Maitland. We love these rugs, not only are they bright and colourful, they are our go to rugs for change of season, particularly at the moment with the cooler weather; they provide great comfort, protection and warmth on the cool days and provide just that extra bit of warmth at night under the WeatherBeeta Original 1200D Combo Medium. The rugs are durable, longwearing, well fitting and generous in size, providing the optimal protection and comfort. I find the belly straps are fantastic for securing the rug in place under the medium combo. The full tail flap with the touch tape for the tail bag attachment is beneficial, providing that extra protection from the elements, and rubbing. As you will see from the photographs below, the neck and shoulder gussets are very generous in size and to allow complete range of movement and reduce rubbing. The close up of Amira shows off her beautiful coat, thanks to the protection of rugging. The only negative, which I have found common to all summer rugs, regardless of brand is the PVC chest strap, in particular with Bailey, the PVC chest strap rub on him. Handy tip: We purchased the baby/toddler car seatbelt strap protectors from the baby section of Big W, they are the perfect size to cover the PVC chest strap and reduce rubbing to the chest area. We use these on all rugs with the PVC chest strap, regardless of brand. Bailey also has a Cant-A Bib (purchased form Horseland Maitland). The one depicted below is a cotton drill, stain lined, with foam filling at the shoulder and wither. Unlike other bibs, this one has the chest strap fitting lower on the bib, leaving no room for the chest strap to touch the horse.
