WeatherBeeta have a large range of Summer Sheets available and with so many options to choose from, it can often be confusing to know which is most suitable for your horse!
We take a deeper look into the features of the WeatherBeeta Summer Sheets and key factors to consider when choosing the best WeatherBeeta Summer Sheet for your horse.
Measured in grams, determining the strength & durability of the rug. WeatheBeeta have 190g, 270g & 360g weight options available.
A higher gram outer will generally lead to a stronger and more durable fabric material, likewise a lower outer weight fabric is a lighter material.
We recommend a higher gram outer for those rug wreckers who tend to rip, bite and destroy their own or paddock mates rugs. A more sensible horse that tends to keep their rugs rip free may be fine in a lighter 190g rug - Summer Sheet Lite.
Climate comes into play when considering the outer weight of your summer sheet. Warmer, more humid climates may better suit a lighterweight summer sheet, to help keep your horse cool. These include the Summer Sheet Lite, Summer Sheet Cotton. A milder climate may be suitable for either of the above rugs as well as the Summer Sheet with Full Wrap Tail Flap, which has a heavier outer.
WeatherBeeta Summer Sheets use a minimum of 60% cotton content.
This high cotton content assists with breathability and overall comfort for your horse. A lower cotton content decreases the breathability, which can cause you horse to sweat and become uncomfortable.
All WeatherBeeta Summer Sheets feature a UV Block of 95%+.
This high UV block helps prevent harmful UV rays and can help limit the bleaching of your horse’s coat. As well as protection from the sun, a Summer Sheet will help to keep your horse happy- protecting them from flies, insects and other biting bugs.

"I have been trying out the Therapy-Tec range for a few weeks now and I have been very impressed by the range! Studying full-time often leaves me pressed for time which I worry affects Manu's muscle recovery post working him..."
My horse, Enzo, has been testing out the new Weatherbeeta Green-Tec rug for the last month and I love it! The rug is perfect for spring as it is waterproof, breathable and the Detach -A-Neck is perfect for those slightly warmer days. It only takes me a short moment to put it on Enzo (provided he is standing still) and fits him like a glove. Enzo loves to run around his paddock and as this rug allows for his natural movement, he can do all the zoomies he wants!
