    Sizing is obviously different down here, Jewel wears a 4'9". This is measured from withers to tail, rather than from the chest like some other countries. She's a 14.3hh TB x Appaloosa

    Here she is getting it lovely and dirty. :D

    Height of horse: 17.1hh
    Breed: Thoroughbred
    Blanket size: 78-81 depending on the blanket brand

    This is an 81..it's too big, he would fit into a 78.

    This is a 78..a bit too snug. But could pass!

    This is an 81..I like the fit.

    This is a 78..and this fits for the most part. It has an adjustable front.
