What is the best rug for a rainy summer day?

The temperature is rising, but the rain is still falling!

In true British summer fashion, it is impossible to have the sun without rain. But how do you keep your horse comfortable in warm wet weather?

The answer is simple... a rain sheet.

A rain sheet is a turnout rug with 0g of filling. They keep your horse dry and shielded from the rain without trapping any heat. Breathable linings ensure your horse remains comfortable even as the temperature warms up.

At WeatherBeeta, we have a range of lightweight turnout rugs in a variety of styles to suit all shapes of horses. Choose from 'Lite' with zero filling or 'Lite Plus' with 50g of filling for slightly cooler days.

Check out 3 of our most loved lightweight rugs to keep your horse dry and comfortable whatever the weather.
