WeatherBeeta Freestyle 1200D Blanket Standard Neck Medium Color: Black/Blue Size: 87 inches
Good medium weight blanket
It is too soon to really know much about this blanket, as I have only used it once. It appears to get good turnout quality for my outdoor horse. The 87 did run a little longer than expected, but I still think the 84 would have been to small for my 17.1hh long Warmblood. The detach a neck will be great, but even the large seems to be on the snug side. Still to soon to know about runnbing etc, but I think I will be alright with this blanket, and hopefully for years to come!

I have a horse who tends to be hard on blankets and Weatherbeeta was recommended to me by someone whose horses wore this brand out in pasture. The fit is good, nice and roomy and good coverage, and cozy but the fabric easily snags and without even trying he has managed to tear out all of the piping and edging. In addition, the reflective fabric in the gussets cracked and tore which I am not sure how the horse would have managed to do that damage.
The fabric at the chest is also wearing out.
I would recommend this blanket to someone whose horses are especially easy on blankets or is stabled.
I have not been able to use the hood that I bought with the blanket as the velcro is too tough for me to pull apart, and I am not sure who thought fleece was a good choice for what is supposed to be waterproof coverage.
I like that this brand uses legs straps, but one tore off completely, luckily the blanket is well balanced and doesn't need 2 leg straps!
