Posted on 14 September 2015

We have had lots of questions about what Horseware rug is what, which one is the best, what does plus mean? So here is our Horseware Winter Turnout Rugs Glossary which explains all for you!

RAMBO TURNOUTS; All of the Rambo rugs are handmade in Ireland

Kirstie Johnston of F&L says; "I have my own Rambo that I bought 24 years ago and it is still 100% waterproof and keeps my old horse dry and happy in the winter months! Best purchase ever"

  • RAMBO DUO; The Rambo duo is an all season rug and is the toughest and most durable of the range hence the high price tag. These are renowned to last for years and years! Comes with detachable neck and you can attach liners to this rug. These Duo's are 100 grams but you add the liners on the inside to keep your horse nice and warm, these rugs come with a 300 gram removable liner. 
  • RAMBO OPTIMO; Rambo Optimo is another one of the TOP quality rugs from the Rambo Range. Rambo is the highest level of rug Horseware do and the most durable. The Optimo is designed to give your horse maximum movement whilst wearing. Made from 1000D ballistic nylon this is a seriously strong rug! Optimo comes with a detachable hood. The rug is 0G but comes with a 400gram liner or you can purchase only the outer with no liner.
