"I got this blanket when it was on sale beacuse of the pink plaid. Little did I know this was going to be the best fitting blanket that I've ever bought for my mare(granted, she's got a wardobe bigger than mine). The hind end is cut perfect and doesn't get all dirty. The only complaint would be that the fleece snuggie part does hold the thick shavings and can be hard to pick off. But, this is the best fitting blanket by far, and my mare looks super cute in it :) Great buy!"
"I ABSOLUTELY LOVE THE SMARTPINK BLANKETS! MAINLY BECAUSE IF ITS PINK, AND ITS MADE FOR HORSES, I OWN IT. THIS BLANKET IS GREAT BECAUSE OF THE SNUGGLE NECK FEATURE, IT DOES NOT PINCH MY MARE'S WITHERS LIKE OTHER BLANKETS AND IS VERY WARM! THE ONLY TWO THINGS TO BE AWARE OF ARE; IT CAN SNAG EASILY SO IF YOU HAVE AN OLD BARN LIKE ME THINGS CAN CATCH ON IT. THE OTHER IS I THINK SMARTPAK BLANKETS RUN A LITTLE SMALL, MY MARE IS USUALLY A 76 AND I GOT HER A 78, AND I'M SO GLAD I DID BECAUSE IT FITS HER PERFECT, A 76 WOULD OF BEEN TOO SHORT AND SO I WOULD RECOMMEND BUYING A SIZE UP. I AM VERY PLEASED W/ THE BLANKET OVERALL AND IT LOOKS GREAT ON MY BLACK (TURNING GREY) MARE! KEEP THE PINK PRODUCTS COMING SMARTPAK:) THANKS!"
"I love this new blanket, It was of a much better quality than I expected and a great buy. I was shocked to find it at the price I did. Referred it to a friend already, who had the older style, sadly they were already sold out. She is still looking because she likes my blanket better than hers lol"
"Our mare looks great in this vibrant pink plaid. I was glad we ordered a size larger, she needed it for the length. She is a reiner and has long, braided mane. Love the soft neck, no rubbing of her braids. She looks quite smart!"
"This blanket is much more than I expected. I bought it while it was on sale and I feel that I got a great blanket for half of the regular price. My only complaint is that it does not have D rings to attach a hood to."

"Super cute blanket. Fits very well, and has all the features you would want. However if your horse likes to lay down at night in shavings, then this is not the blanket for you. The snuggle neck is like a magnet for shavings."
"Great blanket! I would highly recommend it. The quality is outstanding! Even the stitching is great. They look more like a $300.00 blanket. The fit is true to size. And for the price I was able to pick up an extra one. If you need a blanket this is it, hands down.... So thrilled I bought it."
"I just purchaced this blue blanket and it's a lot nicer than I thought it would be for the price. They do run a little small as I ordered 2-3 inches large and just fits. I have a 2-year old paint that is already 15.3" and still growing! It's quilted and waterproof and looks great on."
"This blanket looked really cute in the catalogue but in person it is even better. The colors are vibrant and the quilting is very nice. I had it embroidered with my horse's name and have had many compliments on it. The pink plaid stands out in the sea of navy, black and hunter green blankets. Good hooks and closures. Easy to put on and off. Can fit in my washer for easy cleaning."
"This blanket keeps my horse very warm but the shaving in his stall tned to stick to the fleece neck part. The blanket stays very clean and always looks nice. The only bad thing I can say is that it runs small. My horse wears a 78 and most blankets are a tiny bit too big on him but this one is a tiny bit too short. I would advise ordering up one size."
"We love this blanket, it is durable, won't snag on fences or tree limbs. Even though he still rolls, it stays in place pretty well and the mud/dirt brushes of so well that minimal upkeep is needed. This blanket is well priced for what it offers."
"aedan looks so cute and warm with this blanket on. i just wish there was a matching hoody and it could be made into a set. OH! when getting your horse's name put on the blanket, the gold/yellow color of thread stands out on the blue."
"It's a very SHORT blanket--the side panels do not reach far enough to block the cold! I bought this blanket for my 16.1 appendix quarter. While the fleece lining was perfect, the fit was HORRIBLE. I ordered a standard 81, it fit him to his dock fine, but width-wise it was WAY TOO SHORT! My horse is young and fit, so fat wasn't an issue. It didn't even reach down far enough to wrap around his barrell and fight off the cold. I returned the blanket and had to pay the $25 dollar shipping--you've been warned."
"I loved the way this blanket looked on the website, and it was just as beautiful in person. However, the Smartpak blanket ran smaller than other brands we use and the fleece at the neckline gapped too much. So, we are exchanging it for a regular Smartpak stable blanket (no fleece neck) in a larger size. Hopefully this one will work!"
