- How to fit a Horse Rug
Self-Cool Close Contact Square Navy
The new way to keep your cool!
The LeMieux Self-Cooling Saddle Pads are made with the innovative FeelCool ¨ Ice material which has a cooling crystal kneaded into the weave. This is activated by moisture; the greater the moisture the greater the cooling effect! The crystals have incredible heat pick-up & transfer properties gradually absorbing and wicking sweat from the horse. Under extreme conditions, once dissipated a reverse rapid cooling effect is produced.
The carbon mesh spine insert reduces any pressure over the wither & back and allows heat to rise and escape through the top of the pad
The inner lining is the same self-cooling fabric as the top side which is soft, friction free and ensures the whole pad breathes and wicks at the same level
An ideal pad for use in hot and humid conditions or for horses that generally sweat a lot during work.

A horse rug is an essential part of caring for your horse and a rug that fits correctly is key to protect your horse and keep them safe and comfortable.
Measuring your horse
Feet and Inches
To measure your horse, use a soft tape measure and measure from the centre of the chest to the end of the buttocks.
To measure your horse for a rug with European sizing (cm) measure from the withers, across the back to the top of the tail.
Fitting a rug
The rug should fit well over the withers and the shoulders so that the horse can move freely without the rug slipping back.
The straps should be tight enough to hold the rug in place, but not so tight that they cause the rug’s shape to distort on the horse’s back. If too tight they may cause pressure points around the horse’s chest and wither area.
Cross surcingles should be fastened so you can fit a hand’s breadth between the surcingles and the horse’s body. This means that the straps are tight enough to prevent legs becoming caught should the horse lie down, but not so tight to cause discomfort.
If the rug has leg straps, they should be fastened so that the left strap is passed around the left hind leg and fastened back to the left side. The right strap should then pass around the right hind leg, loop through the left strap, and then fasten to the right side. There should be about 4-5” between the strap and the horse’s leg to prevent the rug slipping without causing the horse any discomfort.
