This is dependent on owner’s preference and the conditions a horse is in.
As Horseware Ireland turnout rugs are waterproof and breathable, it is very common for them to be used in the stable.
However, factors that contribute the changing of rugs are as follows:
Wet rug: While Horseware Ireland rugs are waterproof, if a turnout rug is used during heavy showers the outer of rug can have water running off it and onto the horse’s limbs when they come in to be stabled. It may be advisable for the rug to be changed to offer a chance for the outer fabric to dry out.
Temperature changes throughout the day: During transitional months (late summer moving to autumn) external temperatures can be very high during the day and drop during the night. It may then be advisable that a heavier weight rug is used at night to keep your horse warm and comfortable.
