Best Horse Blankets for Horses With High Withers

Horses come in all sizes. Thankfully, horse blankets do too. 

If your horse has high withers, you'll need a blanket that won't rub or put uncomfortable pressure on that area.  Any blanket that has a mid or high neck cut helps take the pressure off the withers. If you are hoping to stick with a classic style, some blankets offer wither-relief pads in the blanket that can help relieve any pressure to the area.  Here are a few recommendations:  

Rambo Wug Turnouts

The Rhino Wug Turnout features the original high neck design providing a snug fit and effectively eliminating pressure to the withers.  It is a great choice for a narrow horse with high withers and comes in 4 weights.
