A lightweight turnout rug is a great option for horse owners looking to rug their horses in milder weather.
Turnout rugs comes in a range of materials, thicknesses and fill. Which option is best for you and your horse depends on where you live and what you use your horse for. A horse that is clipped and stabled most of the time will need a different rug than a horse that is used to being outside and has a thicker coat.
