Avoid a cold after training, buy a sweat blanket

Something you should avoid at all cost, is your Shetland pony or miniature horse catching a cold. You can achieve this by not exposing your pony to low temperatures, but it’s a lot easier to make sure your pony is well protected. There are several suitable blankets for this. A winter blanket for instance, for very cold weather, rain blankets when the weather forecast predicts precipitation and sweat blankets. These sweat blankets are used after a training. They might seem insignificant; when sweating is involved, it’s probably not very cold. And yet, these sweat blankets are very important indeed. If your Shetland pony, Falabella or Welsh pony seriously sweated during a training, it can cool down rapidly. The damp on the coat gets chilly and the miniature horse will grow cold very quickly. You can avoid this by covering your horse with a sweat blanket, immediately after training. The sweat will be drained away and the pony will not get hypothermic. You can also use the sweat blanket after washing your pony, so it dries up well.

 

You’ll only find prime quality blankets here

The best advice we can give you about buying a sweat blanket, is to always choose quality. With inferior sweat blankets it’s been known to happen, that pretty soon they don’t work anymore, so you can throw them out. Or if you keep using them, they might cause other problems. You may wonder: what does it mean, they don’t work anymore? And how does that happen? The purpose of a sweat blanket is to drain the fluid (sweat) so your Shetland pony, miniature horse or other pony does not cool off too quickly. When you wash your sweat blanket regularly and the fabric is not strong enough, pretty soon the blanket does not work anymore. The sweat will stay on the coat of your pony and after a heavy training, your pony can easily catch a cold. So, always take a durable sweat blanket. Fortunately you’ll find blankets in abundance at this web shop, because we only sell quality products so the customer is always satisfied.

 

One more piece of advice

Our major advice was to buy a prime quality blanket, but there is more to consider.  It is important to buy a blanket that fits your pony perfectly. We have sweat blankets especially for Shetland ponies, blankets only suitable for Welsh ponies and sweat blankets just for Falabellas. Besides, even ponies of the same breed also have different sizes. And, naturally you must also find a colour you like. And you have to consider whether you  like a fleece blanket or a woollen blanket. Fortunately this Minihorseshop offers a wide range of blankets.
