The Weatherbeeta Cotton Show Sheet is a stylish and durable cotton drill show rug with smart two-tone binding. The nylon-lined shoulders help prevent rubbing and stretching.
What did Joy think?
For some reason I have had a lot of trouble finding a stable sheet to fit Herbie my 14.2 (almost!) coloured cob.
The issue is that although he measures approx 5ft 10ins from chest to tail, 6ft rugs just don’t fit him. In some brands a 6ft 3 still comes up short. He doesn’t have a big neck but has a broad chest. He also has a very dense coat so a sheet is very useful to keep the chill off when a lightweight stable rug isn’t required.
I have never tried a Weatherbeeta rug and was of the incorrect impression that they catered for the leaner type of horse as opposed to a chunky pony.
Herbie seemed comfortable in the rug. Just one thing to say is that perhaps the neck could be cut a tad higher. I did find that it slipped back slightly during the night. This is an observation not a criticism as it is the best fitting sheet I have been able to find for him. The Weatherbeeta Stable Sheet is great quality for the money, a really smart rug. The rug was easy to do up and sat nicely on Herbie.
The sheet I have tried is a 6’3” and the length is perfect on him. The neck is cut quite low in front, which is really helpful to fit freely around his chest and the rug is lightweight and comfortable. I’m really pleased with the rug overall – it did the job perfectly, a lovely practical colour for a dirty cob too! Really great quality, nice heavy cotton, although lightweight and breathable
Would you recommend to a friend?
Yes definitely – We’ll also look at other Weatherbeeta rugs in the future now we know they fit.
Pros – Great quality, smart appearance
Cons – Cut of neck generous but this may be just Herbies shape and this is the best rug I’ve tried for him so far.
