Falpro

Ola,

Have you ever heard about Falpro rugs? No? Me neither until a couple of month ago. For the last few years Charlotte Dujardin was sponsored by Bucas, but she has now switched over to Falpro. As I’m always intrigued by brands that we don’t have in the surroundings I wanted to take a closer look to the brand.

At first glance it looks a lot like the rugs from Horseware. They have several good looking rugs and you can always add a liner to them to make them warmer in the winter. However as I haven’t had one in my hands I can’t say how they feel quality wise, but I’ve heard their really good quality, but tend to be rather heavy. They’ve also got extras like halters, saddle pads and travel boots.

There is a few things I really like about this brand which I wish Bucas would adopt to their lines. Number 1 is the fact that the surcingels is fastened on the outside of the rug. On the new Bucas rugs these are on the inside. Which means that when the horse lays down they go directly into the skin of the horse which cannot be very comfy. Number 2 is that most of the stable rugs comes with a soft fleece neck which won’t damage the mane and number 3, all the outdoor rugs have flash stripes on the front and back so your horse will light up in the dark if there were to come a car.

At the moment it doesn’t seem that you can buy these rugs in the Netherlands, but you can buy them online HERE. The prices are at the level of Bucas and Horseware.

Have you ever tried one of these rugs?
