Here at Houghton Country, we know how hard it can be to find the perfect turnout rug for your horse so we provide a superb selection at competitive prices from top brands such as Horseware and Shires in a variety of materials, cuts and sizes, you’re sure to find the right waterproof rug for your horse or pony.
As technologies and fabrics have moved forward and owners have demanded more from manufactures there have never been as many options available which can make it difficult to find the right rug or rugs for your horse or pony.
Finding the right rug or right weight of rug for your horse depends on a large number of factors such as the breed, age, condition and the amount of shelter available in the field they're turnout out and just like humans, some feel the cold more than others although they are more resistant to cold than us.
To offer you a variety of options we stock rugs with integrated neck covers, which are great for horses or ponies with high withers or dipped backs who can be prone to rubbing and slipping back (also great for mudlarks which are being worked from the field rather than stabled), rugs which come with detachable necks, giving you the option to offer more protection and warmth when the weather is at it's worst and original cut rugs with no neck cover for the hardy types who don't need to be wrapped up. If you change your mind some rugs come with the neck attachments so you can buy a neck/hood separately.
We stock a full range of lightweight, medium weight and heavyweight turnout rugs to ensure we have horse rugs for all seasons. We also stock rugs with liner systems which allow you to buy the waterproof outer at one weight then top-up the warmth rating with various liners which attach securely when the weather demands.
Once you've got your horse's wardrobe sorted out don't forget here at Houghton Country we also stock women's, men's and children's clothing as well as riding wear. And we also stock a large range of products for dog's and have monthly offers on a wide variety of products.
