I generally leave horses in turnouts more than swap these days. Little ex-racer though is a fairly warm horse and with the temps going up he needs different rugs day and night.
He’s currently in a 100g by day and I’m not sure but suspect it’s pretty heavy (second hand!) at night.
Just looking for something cheap but lighter to tide us over.
What’s Derby house own rug sizing like? He varies a bit between 6’ and 6’3

6ft 3, fits like a dream on my lad. 16hh, cob cross.
One thing I've found with Derby House is that the neck gets greasy a lot quicker than in his other rugs, so you'll need to be on high alert for mane loss.

😂 they only have it in 6’ it’s in the sale so that answers that then!
I’ve just found a Rambo though on Facebook marketplace in drivable distance so am going to spend that bit more and get long term rug instead of a ride me over rug.... and a little road trip to boot!
