You know that feeling when your horse have been outside with his raincoat on, rolling around, having fun and then he/she comes in and you have to hang the rug over your other rugs which is hanging on your stable door? Making them all dirty as well.
I actually stole this tip from a stable friend who had hung up one. A rug bag for your stable door.
I bought mine from QHP a couple of weeks ago and it’s proving itself very useful. It’s super easy to click on your door and you can still slide the door open. The one on the picture above is currently carrying 3 different sweat rugs(yeah let’s not get into why I have 3 different ones), all staying nice and clean while the dirty rain coat can hang on top.
Here are some different options:
QHP – 21.95 euro
BR – 25 euro
Since the Netherlands is truly showing itself from its most beautiful side today(irony- its been raining all day), I remembered that I need to buy a walker rug for when I lunge Mr.Grumpy in the rain. Generally I find walker rugs such a first world problem product, but for Mr.Teddybear Grumpy they do come in handy. In the autumn/winter it takes so long for him to dry because of his long coat(he cant be shaved either because he’s a dramaqueen) so I end up spending ages at the stable literally looking at him dry so I can put on his winter rug. Yes I do know I can put hay in between, but I’m a bit particular about him being dry before I leave. So the solution is for him not to get to wet, aka a walker rug. I’ve had a look around, and there definitely are many different ones depending on what you want. Below you can find a wide selection of them including the price and links to were to buy them:
Bucas Irish walker rug – 89 euro
Amigo Walker. This one comes in two different versions 100 gram 80 euro and 200 gram 104 euro. There is meant to come one without filling this year, but I couldn’t find it now.
Pfiff walker rug – 55.40 euro
QHP walker rug – 79.95 euro (2oo gram)
Horze Walker rug – 63.71 euro (200 gram)
Riders Pro walker rug – 60 euro
Rambo Softshell rug – 115 euro
Waldhausen walker rug – 64.95 euro
Bucas shamrock power walker rug – 86 euro
Im considering buying the Rambo as I think this will be the best for lunging, the price is just turning me off a bit..
With my old Harry’s horse helmet I didn’t really care to take care of it and generally let it just hang around in my tack closet. However for Christmas I got a really nice Samshield helmet that I wanted and needed to take a bit better care of. After having a look online I ended up with the black and brown BR(nr 6) one that you can see below here. Super happy with it and its leaving my helmet scratch free. I need another one for my new Uvex competition helmet tough, so wanted to see if there was something new on the marked. Below you can see some of the ones I found. I think I will end up with the Uvex one, just need to save up a bit.
