"I got the nylon version of this sheet, so it's more of the square fit (not the more tailored one I've seen#. I got it at the end of the season in the SmartPak attic #love that place!!!#, so it was a good deal and I thought I'd try it. The horse I'd been riding is older and loves all his BOT products. He's usually an 84 or 81 in some brands, but the one I saw was an 84 so I got that. I do think it's a bit big and the saddle opening is very large, so I would reccomend ordering a size #or two# down. Like all BOT products, this will definitely heat your horse up, so I think this would be best for places with cold winters #aka not for the snowbirds!)."
"I ordered the fleece version of this quarter sheet for my horse that has extremely tight/sore muscles in his hind end (suspected EPSM). I wish Smartpak would show a picture of it, as the only pictures they show are of the more "all weather" version. The one I got is kind of a lighter weight fleece. It has a keyhole cutout for the saddle and a very large (too large, IMO) hook and loop closure at the withers.
The product has helped my horse immensely as far as being able to work more comfortably with his muscle issues in the winter. As with other BOT products, I think the technology really works. However, there are a few details I would change.
First, as mentioned, the hook and loop closure is gigantic and very stiff. It is extremely difficult to keep it from getting pulled down and putting pressure on the top of the withers while riding. I suppose the positive of this is that there is pretty much zero chance of it coming unhooked while riding.
Second, the tail cord is pretty cheap - basically just a string you have to tie on (no clips). The rings for it are also awkwardly placed. I actually can't use it on my horse, as he won't tolerate it (he IS particular, and he also has a fairly high set tail). I don't love riding without a tail cord for safety reasons, but I really don't have other options with this horse. That said, he has engaged in some serious antics (bucking, etc.) both on the lungeline and under saddle while wearing this, and it has stayed in place.
Finally, I wish it were a bit thicker. The fleece is pretty thin. I suppose this might end up being a benefit in that it may permit me to ride him in it in warmer weather, but in winter I find myself wishing for something thicker."
