I’ve been searching for a new turnout blanket for my horse since he tore his to shreds. Winter can be pretty brutal where I live so I like to have everything just in case. During my search for a new blanket I stumbled across the Ice Turtle and Snapping Turtle blankets. They fit the criteria I had in mind, and they were reasonably priced. The Ice Turtle retails for $199, and the Snapping Turtle retails for $149.
The blankets were so nice and very well-made. When I received mine I just wanted to cuddle myself in it. The blankets have the comfort of the horse in mind. There is a thick fuzzy part over the withers which helps with a high withered horse, like mine. The velcro on the neck cover, and the neck cover attachment is so strong, it’s almost hard for me to get off my horse. The buckle at the front is heavy duty. Beneath the buckles is a reinforcement of double-locking Velcro, which helps keep the blanket in place. The quality of these blankets is amazing, and any problem I’ve had was resolved instantly by their wonderful customer service.
When I first ordered the company ended up sending me the wrong blanket. An honest mistake. I emailed them asking what had happened. Minutes later I received a call from their customer service representative. They were going to let me use the blanket until I could receive the new one, and then send the one they sent me back. They told me it would be donated to a horse rescue upon returning to them. However, after seeing the amazing product quality I wanted it, so I told them I’d buy it. They ended up discounting their sale price.
Another perk is the reflector strips on the back of the tail flap, back corners of the blanket, and in the front by the buckles. Additionally, everything is replaceable: the belly surcingles, the leg straps, the wither fuzzy, and the buckles. That was an amazing feature.
I have to admit I was nervous about sending my horse out in the blanket. He plays pretty rough with the Belgian and pony in his pasture. It turns out I worried for nothing. The blanket stayed in place even when he rolled. It seemed to mold itself to his body, which was amazing. Their blankets are definitely one of a kind and I will always have at least one, maybe more. I don’t have anything negative to say about this company and its products. I hope everyone who has had or has one of the blankets is just a satisfied as I am.
