The Fabric Barrier for Rhino Blankets
The Rhino Blanket Collection from Horseware features technology that changes the rules!PUT THE TOUGHNESS ON THE OUTSIDE - The Tough polypropylene outer shell.
THE TECHNOLOGY IN THE MIDDLE - The waterproof and breathable barrier.
THE COMFORT ON THE INSIDE - The thermal and absorbent layer.
The Rhino Barrier Technology is based on 3 core principles:
Unlike the conventional approach, where the waterproof coating is applied directly to the outer layer, Horseware Barrier Technology changes the rules. The outer shell of a Rhino does not carry the waterproof coating like most blankets on the market. They've put the protective barrier on the inside, so that even if the outer fabric is damaged, the inner waterproof and brathable barrier remains intact.
The outer layer of a Rhino turnout blanket is made of 1000D Polypropylene. Polypropylene is 50 to 100% stronger than the coated Polyester used in the majority of turnout blankets, so you have a blanket that is light but strong.
The AquaTrans coating is actually applied to the barrier layer, allowing the blanket to be waterproof and provide maimum breathability. Underneath the barrier fabric is another very thin layer, which will trap and hold sweat from the horse until it has time to escape into the air.
Horseware Ireland has a full line of Rhino Turnout blankets that are unique in design and function and will meet the needs of you and your horse. The Rhino Plus features a detachable hood, The Rhino Wug features a high neck design and the Rhino Original features the classic, original cut.
