Things to Consider When Buying Horse Rugs

Don’t forget to consider some of the horse rugs produced in foreign countries, as their cost can be quite low. These rugs are basically a textile product and there are many foreign countries where textiles are very inexpensive. Getting familiar with some the companies in these countries might help you save some money. Armed with the names of some of these foreign manufacturers you may be able to locate some of their distributors here in our country. You might just be amazed at how much less expensive some of their products can be.
When shopping for horse rugs be sure to note that the fabric weight is advertised as the “denier” of the fabric. A higher denier will mean more fabric weight. A denier of 1000 or more generally denotes a heavy winter rug. You will want to match the rug weight to the weather conditions. Something to keep in mind is that some of the best quality manufacturers do not specify denier. This because some of the less honest manufacturers will advertise their denier number as being the weight of two fiber strands instead of one making the rug seem twice as heavy. You could get the impression that the quality is higher than it really is.
Good values are out there. Shop around a bit before deciding. Season end sales can be a good way to save money. Buying a winter weight rug near the end of winter may afford you a good deal. If you are looking for a summer flysheet buy it during the winter.
You may be able to find a good preowned rug on the Internet. If you spot a good brand that has had little use you may have a good deal.
