About Kensington turnout rugs

Kensington is a family owned, well-established U.S. market leader in horse clothing. They utilise quality materials and manufacturing for a long-lasting product, as well as designs that ensure comfort for the horse.

What makes them special

  • Surefit cut: Kensington's new Surefit rug cut is designed to fit a wide range of horse shapes, and to minimise rubbing problems. The cut incorporates detachable criss-cross leg straps and an adjustable front with snaps for easy on and off. on shell:  Originally developed for flak jackets, this is one of the strongest materials available for horse rugs, 
  • Teflon coating and Cool-Plus liner:  The turnout ranges incorporate Teflon coating to provide fade and stain resistance, plus a Cool-Plus liner designed to draw away heat and wick away moisture when needed, preventing damp chill and allowing the rug to remain comfortable at higher temperatures. 
  • Light hollow-fill insulation: Kensington's insulated rugs employ special super-effective hollow-fill insulation that combines high breathability with a lot more warmth per gram of weight, providing a lighter and easier-to-handle rug
  • Robust construction: Kensington's great designs are complemented by top-level manufacturing specifications: highly robust materials, double-seaming using very strong thread, wide velcro attachments, and solid, no-rust metal fittings
  • Lifetime replacement Guarantee: Such is Kensington's confidence in the robustness and longevity of their products that they offer a Lifetime Replacement Guarantee.  More details here
