Horse Blanket Care Instructions

Horseware has provided these instructions to care for their turnout rugs:

To keep your blanket as comfortable as possible for your horse and to maximize the blanket's life, we recommend that you clean your blanket annually.  First, remove excess dirt from the outside of the blanket with a brush and hose. The blanket can then be washed either by hand, or on a delicate cycle with cool water in a commercial washer. Use only very mild soap. Horseware recommends their Eco Rug Wash, an environmentally friendly product for use on synthetic fabrics. Eco Rug Wash will effectively remove dirt without damaging the waterproof coating.

When the blanket has been washed, allow to drip dry and ensure that the blanket is thoroughly dry before storage. Do not put your horse's blanket in the dryer or wash with hot water. Do not store your horse's blanket if damp or wet. This will damage the waterproof coating and void any warranties. In the unlikely event that your horse blanket should become nicked or damaged due to horse abuse Horseware recommends Stormsure to contain and waterproof the nicks that your blanket may get through the years.
