The Fabric Barrier for Rhino Blankets

The Rhino Blanket Collection from Horseware features technology that changes the rules!
The Rhino Barrier Technology is based on 3 core principles:

  • 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.

    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. The Rhino Turnout Blankets will not slip or rub and are available in heavy, medium and lightweight styles.

    Excellent Blanket
    Oct 19 2012
    Review posted by Kate, Canada
    I purchased this blanket for my QH mare who measures a true 74" from the centre of her chest to the centre of her tail but who tends to be swimming in blankets because the drop is too deep. Not so with the wug! It fits her wonderfully! The belly straps and leg arches wrap any excess drop under her belly so she is warm all around, keeping her cosy during the cold Canadian winters. The higher neck keeps the wind and snow from getting under the blanket and there is no rubbing on her mane or withers. The blanket is easy to put on and take off, and it is extremely well made. I wasn’t sure about the lack of leg straps, but the blanket stays in place even when the horse rolls. My mare doesn't usually damage blankets but this one looks tough for those who like to rip them to shreds. Bottom line: Excellent purchase and I would buy from this site again. Thanks for the great service!
