Using a tape measure (or a piece of string that you can measure later) measure your horse from the centre of his chest, across the point of his shoulder and horizontally along the side to the point where you require the rug to finish (normally vertically below the dock).
Rugs are sized in feet and inches, in increments of 3” although in Europe, measurements are starting to be taken along the top seam in cm. If your horse is between sizes, you are usually better to go up a size rather than down, unless your horse is of small build or narrow chested. If you think your horse may require a bespoke rug, please read our page on Breed Coats, Bespoke Horse and Dog Rugs and then give us a call 01267 233737.
Please note that Lansdown Multi-Purpose Rugs will not stretch. Please buy the size that fits your horse. Our strong tape sewn along the topline ensures that the rug keeps its shape.
