rugDoes your horse always manage to get their rug off, despite all your best efforts? Or does their rug get rips and tears, where other horse’s rugs last years? Weatherbeeta have put together a tool to help you choose the best rug for your horse.


Weatherbeeta are one of the main players in horse rug retailers. They have a strong progressive focus, always looking to use new technology to develop their rugs to ensure quality, comfort and safety. Extensive research has been undertaken to make sure your horse is protected in all weathers with breathable fabrics and moisture repellent outer layers. So in October 2013 Weatherbeeta took a new step forward and developed an innovative tool to help horse owners select the ideal rug from their range, based on the personality of their horse.

Splitting rug personalities into three main categories, they’ve put together a quick test that when completed offers guidance on which rugs will be right for your horse. The personality categories are:


  • The Rug Wrecker – A strong minded horse that manages to ruin their rugs on a frequent basis


  • The Rug Houdini – A horse that by some means always manages get out of their rug


  • The Rug Friendly – A quiet natured horse that’s gentle with their rugs


Just looking at the categories alone may be enough for you to have already placed your horse in one. But what if they’re a Houdini and a Wrecker? And if they’re Rug Friendly, what’s the best value choice?
