Horse Turnout Sheets can be thought of as a light jacket for your horse. They provide lighter, waterproof protection against the elements like rain, mud, and dirt. On those windy, pretty early springtime days you may forgo the heavy, fleece-lined parka in favor of a light windbreaker. Turnout sheets function in a similar way!
Sometimes called “light turnout blankets”, turnout sheets are waterproof, durable, and designed to withstand running, playing, and training. They serve the same purpose as the heavier weighted turnout blanket but are designed to be worn in the fall and spring seasons, as they do not provide as much protection from the cold. Their hardy, waterproof material can be compared to the material used to make rain sheets, however, they are designed with movement and exercise in mind whereas the rain sheet is not.
Turnout sheets are often designed with gussets and shoulder darts in order to provide security without sacrificing freedom of movement and range of motion. Turnout sheets like this Saxon 600D Standard Neck are weighted perfectly for those windy, wet days where a turnout blanket is a little too thick and heavily weighted, but a rain sheet is too light.
One Stop Equine Shop carries a wide variety of turnout sheets from top brands like Horze, Weatherbeeta, and Saxon that will help keep your horse’s coat mud and water-free while out on the paddock or playing in the field.
