You measure a pony’s rug size from:
The nose to the tail
The poll to the tail
The centre of his chest to the furthest point of the hind quarters
A turnout rug should be used:
When your pony is warm after exercise
When your pony is going out in the field
To ride your pony when it is raining
Cross over surcingles fasten:
At the pony’s chest
At the pony’s back legs
At the pony’s belly
A breathable rug:
Helps to stop your pony from sweating
Allows plenty of room for your pony to breathe
Stops your pony from getting out of breath in the field
The correct way to put on a rug is to:
Throw it over your pony doing the straps up in any order you want
Put it on gently doing the straps up working from the back of the pony to the front of the pony
Fold the rug in half and put it on your pony, then do the straps up working from front to back
An exercise sheet is:
For clipped ponies when being exercised, or for ponies ridden in the rain
To help your pony cool down after exercise
For your pony to wear in his stable to keep warm
A stable rug is:
Warm but not waterproof
Made of wicking to help dry wet ponies
Warm and waterproof
