[Laura Loves] Show Fleeces


I am now officially finished from uni! Such a scary yet exciting prospect! I had my one and only exam on Friday, which, fingers crossed went well, so now that is it! It's been quite weird realising that I do not have any work to do...for the past two weeks I have been busy revising and the past 5-6 months have been spent doing dissertation work, assignments, extra uni work, basically just work work work, so now that it's over I'm at a slight loss! However, my sister is getting married Friday so this week is busy getting organised for that so I think next week for definite I will be at a sudden loss! Though at least it will mean that Pea can finally get back into routine work as it's been a bit lack recently due to uni and whatever! 

Anyway, onto this post! Although Pea already has 3 fleeces, they have become stable/under rugs and therefore, me being me, I feel that I need a nice posh looking one that is strictly for competition/travelling use! You may remember a vaguely similar one where I wrote about three show shirts, trying to decide which to pick (you can read that here). I still haven't yet bought one as I haven't been out competing, however, I recently spotted the Equetech Lacie in a local tack shop and quite liked it in person so I may drag mum along to get her opinion! 

The first one is the Buster Fleece Rug by Premier Equine. I think this is a particularly popular choice among people and I think I would go for the burgundy as it matches his travel bandages. The only thing I'm slightly concerned about it whether it's quite heavy as Pea can sweat a bit travelling so I obviously don't want him to get too hot during those in-between days where it's not quite warm enough to travel without a rug... Though I do also like their Buster Cool Sheet and their Premtex Cooler

The second is the Rambo Grand Prix Show Rug. This one has the braiding detail at the back and also states that it has high wicking properties which would be useful if he does happen to get sweaty whilst travelling. It is, however, more pricey but my mum did mention about possibly getting me one for my birthday so who knows! I also like the Airmax Cooler though I have a feeling that may end up turning into a stable rug!

The final one is the Comfort Zone Lapel Rug. This is similar to the Premier Equine one I guess and is slightly more expensive but I like the contrast round the whither area!

I'm pretty sure I will pick one if the Premier Equine ones, just which one...? Oh, I'm so bad at decisions! 

Which is your favourite? What rug do you travel yours in? Let me know!

Thanks for reading,

  1. Love the Rambo one! It's pretty similar to my B Vertigo rug ( which would look great on Pea too! ;) I'm a sucker for the braiding detail so any rug with that gets my vote!!

    1. Just had a look and the B Vertigo one is nice too! When I was younger I think I wanted a braided one because it seemed everyone had one! haha!
