In the last half year I’ve bought a lot of new stuff for my horse, like rugs, saddle, tendon boots and so forth. Before I buy anything I always go on the internet to see reviews from other people regarding that specific product that I want.
However I’ve noticed that in the horse world I hardly manage to find any, specially if the product is new. Therefore I thought I would start reviewing the products that I buy, so other people like me might find it useful.
The first product that I will be reviewing is the new Rambo Dry rug cooler. I’ve had mine for a couple of months now, so I feel I can give a proper review about it.
This is what the producer says about the product : “The Rambo Dry Rug is a fantastic microfiber towelling cloth rug with a smart hideaway neck hood. It dries your horse in record time, absorbing moisture to leave a high gloss and smooth finish to your horse’s coat. Roll up the neck/hood to dry the mane and neck, roll back into a hideaway pocket when not needed.”
My opinion about the rug:
In the winter season my horse becomes a proper hairy bear, but because he is afraid of the shaving machine I unfortunately cannot shave him. This means that every time we have a proper ride I have to wait forever for him to dry. The cooler rug I used just didn’t cut it, so I decided to start looking for a new one and came across this one after searching for hours on the internet. At first I didn’t believe the that it would really dry my horse that fast, but was willing to try.
I must say I am super satisfied with this rug.The first time I had it in my hands I found the fabric super weird as it feels like a bathrobe kind of fabric. However it definitely dries my horse super quickly, as fast as 20 minutes at times and it leaves him with such a shiny glossy coat. The only downside with the rug is that because its light grey, it easily gets dirty, and if your horse rolls in the stable everything sticks to it because of its special fabric.
- Dries Mr.Grumpy fast
- Easy to clean in the washing machine
- Does make your horse look cute (not important, but who doesn’t like that.haha)
- If you’re horse is a roller in his stable, everything sticks to this rug. Mine did it once and I had to spend an hour taking of the hay again.
- You can roll up the neck piece, but you need to do it neatly, otherwise it doesn’t look very nice.
- Price. Not everyone can afford or want to spend 85 euro on a cooler.
Ps: My horse is 167 cm, and uses the size medium. The rug cannot be too big as its supposed to be in close contact with the coat.
