Whether travelling our horses, out on a ride or about the yard there are times we all just need that something to make things a little quicker, simpler or safer for our horses and ourselves and to let us just get on with getting that job done.
Keeping all four feet on the ground can be a challenge at times, from managing sugar intake during that spring flush, to fun and games that get a little too wild in a mud slick pasture, sometimes it can seem that no matter what we do our horses are determined to have at least one hoof in the air at all times.
Your leatherwork will spend as much time on your horse as you do. Unlike you it will have to weather cold, wet, heat and sweat with little or no protection. Leather is a natural material that breathes, retaining its strength and flexibility no matter what the weather throws at it. It is not thermal conductive and will therefore never be too hot or too cold for your horse to comfortably wear, no matter the outdoor temperature or activity. It is incredibly strong and durable, a correctly tanned piece can last hundreds of years, yet it is soft and supple enough to be used on the skin of the most delicate newborn foal.
Many of us find rugging an uneasy compromise, it allow us that little extra time with our horse doings something we value, grooming, schooling, hacking rather than trying to dry a cold, wet and muddy pony and provides that little extra protection from the weather in a less than ideally positioned paddock or field.
