The Rhino® Plus Heavyweight Blanket with Vari-Layer® from Horseware® Ireland comes with a detachable neck cover so you can adjust your horse's level of protection as needed. This heavyweight blanket boasts the Surefit Neck with V-Front to provide your horse unrestricted freedom to eat from the ground. Unique Leg Arches™ allow the blanket to wrap closer to your horse’s belly without interfering with your horse’s natural movements.

This winter horse blanket features unique Rhino Barrier technology for guaranteed waterproof, breathable coverage and the revolutionary Vari-Layer insulating system for increased warmth with less weight for your horse to carry.

The Barrier system uses a 1,000 denier polypropylene outer layer to protect the waterproof and breathable layer just underneath. Polypropylene is a stronger alternative to the widely used polyester turnout material, but if it is compromised, the waterproof layer underneath continues to keep your horse dry.

Vari-Layer technology uses additional layers of thermobonded fiberfill across your horse’s back and hips, where most of the heat loss is typically experienced. With the fill layered in the key areas, the ultimate in heat retention and comfort is achieved with less weight. This fiber placement also allows the blanket to wrap closely around your horse, trapping heat. Lastly, the effect of gravity compression on the blanket fill is lessened, and the blanket stays fuller longer.

The combined design elements of a tail strap and back darts on this blanket prevent the shifting of the blanket while the horse is moving and provide a safe and comfortable fit that eliminates the need for leg straps.
