It is typically made of a breathable fabric, such as nylon or polyester, and it is water-resistant or waterproof.

How to Choose the Right Horse Turnout Sheet for Your Horse

When choosing a horse sheet turnout, there are a few things you need to consider:

  • The size of your horse. Make sure to choose a horse sheet turnout that is the right size for your horse. A sheet that is too small will be uncomfortable for your horse, and a sheet that is too large will be difficult to put on and take off.
  • The climate you live in. If you live in a cold climate, you will need a horse sheet turnout that is designed to keep your horse warm. If you live in a warm climate, you may only need a rain sheet turnout or a fly sheet turnout.
  • Your horse's activity level. If your horse is very active, you will need a horse sheet turnout that is made of durable materials and that won't restrict your horse's movement.
  • Your budget. Horse sheet turnouts can range in price from around $75 to $400. Choose a sheet that fits your budget and your needs.
