I know it sounds crazy and looks even crazier, but it's easy to pack in the trailer, keeps them warm, and keeps them clean. I discovered Sleazy Barb's Horsewear about 5 years ago and the horses are okay with sliding it over their head which was hard to believe and it's the equivalent to the new Under Armour wear in keeping their temperature them warm. Plus it fits in a ziploc gallon bag so "easy to pack".
Every time I get these out, I have to shake my head as they are so over the top, but they are fun and come in handy when you want to keep a horse clean or give them an extra bit of warmth. The amazing thing is that they don't really mind it. And for the men out there, they do come in solid colors "without" sparkles and bright patterns!
In this photo we have just returned from riding and the wind was horrible when we got back in. I did put them in stalls for the weekend because it was so windy, cold, and rainy. I don't typically go camping in that kind of weather but we did get 1.5 days of great weather in the middle of it and I had a single solitary mile in for the year up to that point due to the really bad winter we had here in Kentucky. This ride St. Patrick's Day weekend put me at 39.1 miles for the year and I was able to ride my new black leather custom Steele Platinum trail saddle.
