It’s that time of year again when we begin to think about rugs. If you use electric fencing to keep your horse or pony safe, have you considered an electric fencing rug? It is designed to work with electric fencing to prevent escapees. The chest and neck area of the rug have the benefit of integrated panels designed to instantly transfer the pulse from an electric fence directly through the inside of the rug, so your horse will feel it the same as if it wasn’t wearing one. The design enables layering of multiple rugs underneath the fence buster whilst still ensuring 100% effect from the fence is felt.
This rug has many benefits we could talk about without the bonus-fencing feature, so on the whole even as a standard turnout rug it’s a pretty good one.
