The Ultra Cozi II - Ultimate protection against the elements
As we pass the “half way through winter” milestone it is easy to get carried away with the prospect of lighter evenings and spring time rides, but it’s important to make sure that we keep or horses sufficiently warm during the last few months of winter.
If you're looking for a new turnout rug, Lois has put our 'cozi'-est rug to the test...
"Mouse is a sixteen-year-old sports horse, and easily feels the cold which can result in a loss of overall condition during winter.
The natural choice for her was the WeatherBeeta ComFiTec Ultra Cozi II Detach-A-Neck Medium, with its 220g of polyfill and the detachable, waterproof neck cover to keep her super-snug.
Amongst the rugs many features, it is fully compatible with the WeatherBeeta ComFiTec Liner system, making it super-versatile with changing temperatures at this time of year. The full-wrap tail flap adds another level of protection around her hind quarters, too.
Mouse also has a particularly high wither, so the memory foam wither-relief pad helps to reduce rubbing and lift the rug from her withers.
As can be seen, Mouse loves to play around in the field and display her acrobatic moves to her friends! Thanks to the full belly flap, adjustable leg straps and WeatherBeeta Cozi guard around her chest, the Ultra Cozi II never moves an inch – despite her best efforts!
This is Mouse’s second winter in her Ultra Cozi II, and even with her daily mud-roll, the rug has never faltered. She stays warm and perfectly dry even in the wettest conditions. The Ultra Cozi II features an ultimate strength 1680 denier ballistic nylon outer shell with Teflon coating that is both waterproof & breathable. Safe to say, she never feels the cold when she is wearing this rug."
The WeatherBeeta ComFiTec Ultra range also includes the Ultra Tough II which has all of the great features as the Ultra Cozi II but is better if you have a rug wrecker!
