It’s one of the trickiest questions horse owners face at this time of year - does my horse need a rug? What weight should he have? With a neck, or without? It can be a tricky task to make sure your horse’s welfare isn’t compromised by leaving him shivering, but equally we need to consider whether we are over-rugging our horses. To learn more about rugging and the effects it has on our horses, see our feature in our February 2019 issue (447).
But in the mean time, why not give our quiz a go to see if your horse might benefit from wearing a rug. Please remember this is just a guide - for expert advice, please talk to your vet.
