Time to Dust Off Those Blanket Bags
PLYMOUTH, MA – August 31, 2016 – Cool weather is quickly approaching, which means that blanket season isn’t far behind! That also means that now is the time to start thinking about building the perfect winter wardrobe for your horse. Whether you’ve got a blanket shredder or want the most fashionable horse in the barn, SmartPak has the blankets you want and the tools you need to help your horse tackle winter’s worst.
“It’s never too early to start thinking about blankets,” said Cyndy Miller, SmartPak’s Senior Director of Merchandising. “We’ve added new and exciting products from the hottest brands to our selection this year, and we’re sure you’ll find something you and your horse will love among our new options and old favorites.”
From turnout sheets to stable blankets and all of the accessories in between, SmartPak has everything that you are looking for. The SmartPak Ultimate Turnout Blanket, which is a customer favorite with hundreds of 5-star reviews, is now available in a new color – Midnight with Royal Blue Trim and Silver Piping. Meanwhile, the Rockin’ SP Ultimate Turnout Blanket, which has all of the same great features as the original Ultimate Turnout Blanket in a stock horse cut, is also available in a second color – Navy with Silver Trim and White Piping.
These blankets are made with a heavy-duty 1000 denier nylon material that is ultra-durable and resists rubs and tears. The nylon outer is waterproof and breathable so your horse can stay dry and protected from the elements without feeling stifled underneath. The quick-clip front closures and low-cross surcingles are designed to be easily adjustable and help keep the blanket securely on the horse. Finally, the tail flap provides additional protection from the elements. The entire line of Ultimate Blankets is backed by a 10-Year Indestructible Guarantee. SmartPak is so confident in the toughness and durability of the Ultimate Turnout Blankets, that if anything happens to this blanket within 10 years of your purchase, SmartPak will replace or refund it—no matter what.
Also returning for this season is the Weatherbeeta Genero 1200D made exclusively for SmartPak, this time in a brand new color – Powder Blue and Indigo. This blanket includes favorite features like a 1200 denier ripstop outer, low cross surcingles, twin chest straps and adjustable leg straps, and a tail flap for added protection. This blanket offers the quality you’ve come to expect from Weatherbeeta at a great value and is only available at SmartPak.
SmartPak has also introduced two new brands to the lineup: Shires and Pessoa. SmartPak’s offering of Shires blankets includes the Shires StormCheeta High Neck Turnout Blanket made exclusively for SmartPak. This blanket is made from ShireTex® 2000 denier ballistic nylon that is both waterproof and breathable. ShireTex® advanced fabric technology coats the outer blanket with a specially formulated hydrophilic coating that is designed to attract excess sweat and moisture from the horse. With this exclusive turnout, only available at SmartPak, you can ensure that your horse is getting protection and comfort in even the toughest weather conditions.
The new and exciting addition from Pessoa is the Pessoa Alpine 1200D Turnout, which is designed to keep your horse warm and dry in style. This top-of-the-line waterproof and breathable turnout features a 1200 denier Oxford polyester outer shell and 420 denier quick-dry nylon lining. It’s available in two stylish plaids so that you can have the best dressed horse in the barn!
