Been trying to find a stable rug, about 200g with a high/extended neck as one of my boys has very high withers and suffers from rubs with a standard neck rug. Have looked at all the usual suspects, Equestrian clearance, premier equine, derby house, etc etc, and I can't find anything that fits the bill. His heavyweight is the shires chillcheeta half combo (375g), and I'm looking for a similar design, but a lighter weight.

Does anyone know where I could get this sort of rug??

Well Fal do a bespoke service, and if you are anywhere near Cardiff a company called 'Horseguards' make made to measure rugs at relatively inexpensive prices.

Edt: to say - of course you're no where near Cardiff - sorry...........

has a rambo duo, which doesn't rub him at all. it's really versitile as the neck can go on or off, and you can change the weight with the liners (so you could make up a 200g with the outer plus a 100g liner), the liner is attached though so it's only like putting on 1 rug.

i've stopped using specific stable rugs, as the rambo ones are so breathable he comfy all day and night, and it means i don't have to worry about rug changing if i'm not at the yard and someone else brings him in.
