Attach horse neck covers or hoods to your horse’s rugs for even more coverage during the coolest months. This will also give a boost to the warmth provided by your horse’s blanket. Horse rugs are primarily used to shield horses from different weather conditions. The right rug and neck cover choice will help to regulate your horse’s body temperature and maintain a healthy condition. Horse rugs are designed to fit around the horses and still allow the horse to move about freely in the paddock. Ensure that you provide the warmth that your horse needs in the winter with the right material and coverage.
