Last week the big horse fair Spoga was held in Cologne. All the large horse brands goes there to show off their new product releases for the winter.
One of the interesting news was the new disc closure that Horseware will be adding to their rugs. Instead of the regular closure the new one will be in the form of a disc on the chest as you can see below :
Would be interesting to see how this works in real life as I guess you can then close it from both sides instead of one. The idea behind it is that it’s supposed to remove the pressure form the front of the chest of the horse, provide easier movement and let the horse graze more easily. Below you can read some facts:
I’m personally a big fan of the Horseware rugs, so hopefully this will make them even better. The only issue I see is that Mr.Grumpy hates rugs and I’m guessing with this closure it will take a bit more time to close them aka more time to get bitten by him. Haha.
You will already see this closure on some of this winters rugs.
