Canvas Rug Information

Canvas Horse rugs – Have kept horses protected from the elements for generations and still remain the fabric of choice for many horse owners.

Cotton canvas is a strong, natural, breathable and affordable fabric with many advantages over new synthetic fabrics.

Our canvas rugs are sewn together using a waxed cotton thread that swells up and expands when wet, enhancing the waterproofing treatment, so your new rug needs to be hosed down and let dry before first use.

Traditionally in the equestrian industry, quality canvas fabric that has been commercially coated to keep out moisture is referred to as waterproof.

Natural breathable proofed canvas horse rugs will keep your horse dry in most normal conditions but the fabric does have limitations.

In very heavy storms or long persistent rain, moisture can eventually enter along necklines and sewn areas and the canvas fabric can “wet out” and become saturated.

If conditions allow the horses body heat will generally dry out the rug.

We offer 16 oz, 17.6 oz and 22 oz cotton canvas with the higher 22 oz with blanket lining offering the best canvas winter protection.

In very high rainfall areas we recommend one of our synthetic fabric rugs.
