Turnout Rug Reviews
Our lovely customers have been giving us excellent feedback and reviews over social media and email, and so we thought we'd gather some of them together to share with everyone. We've also got a great, detailed video review from Gracie at @Pony_Nuts at the end - make sure to check it out!
Lucy & Tilly (& Milly the dog!): "We are totally in love with the rug! The fit and quality is just perfect! We have struggled to find her rugs that fit well and don't break the bank. We will definitely be buying from you again and will pass your name on to all our friends! Thank you again for making such a lovely rug x"
Jess, Leo & Ben: "I absolutely love the rugs and was extremely impressed with the quality and detail on them. The sizing was perfect and they were very adjustable. Both boys love them already and look very smart in them too! I cannot wait to take these rugs to shows as well as showing them off on my yard 🤩❤️"
Lorraine & Louie: "I was so excited when it was delivered that when the doorbell went I squealed and ran to the door! It's just as fab as the unicorn one I bought from you earlier in the year. You will definitely be my go-to when I need (want!) a new rug! Fab rugs and excellent quality. Ponyo rugs are just perfect in every way. Strong, beautiful, perfect fit, gorgeous patterns, 1200D and durable. I would recommend to anyone looking for a new rug."
Elmo & Babe: "A little while ago Elmo's fave Instagrammer @rome_the_mini created his very own brand @ponyo.horsewear. Elmo told me he really wanted one of these rugs that his friend Rome helped to create, so recently I let Elmo get matching rugs for him and Babe 🙈 we had a bit of an argument about which design, there are lots of awesome prints! But we decided on juicy watermelons and they look incredible 😍. Unfortunately neither boys really wanted to be models today! We need our chief photographer back to help us out 😂. This rug is actually the first brand I’ve found that fits Elmo and is affordable 👌🏼 he is a 4ft but in normal brands the straps are too long and they swamp him despite being the correct size. This one fits perfectly though and has a detachable neck too. The quality is impeccable, I am so impressed. @ponyo.horsewear will definitely be my rugs of choice for my boys from now on 👌🏼.
Eden, Patrick & DanDan: "When I first came across the Ponyo Horsewear rugs it was a completely new brand to me but, like most, I fell in love with the range of vibrant colours and patterns that are available. Once My rugs arrived I wasn’t disappointed by the look, they were bright, colourful and really stood out from the crowd. We have 2 ponyo rugs, one for a lanky 16.2hh warmblood type and the other for an 11.2hh stocky Dartmoor. The fit of the rugs is great especially for 2 very different types of horse, fitting well around the large chest of our Dartmoor, but also not coming up short anywhere on the bigger horse. The quality of these rugs is second to none, you can’t only tell this by the look and the feel but when they’re put to the test they don’t disappoint. With the horses living out 24/7 this winter through storms, strong winds, rain and snow they really stood up to the test and the “Monkey Bananas” pattern was still bright and very visible! As spring is now approaching the rugs have been washed and are looking back to brand new, with no nicks in the fabric at all! The main thing that I love about the design of these rugs is the extra logo on the front which also offers an extra velcro fastening, for me it is something extra that I have never seen on a rug previously and it just shows the extra care and attention that has gone into the design of the rug, something that you would only get from a small business! The neck attachment on the rugs have been designed brilliantly, with the clip being set further back than the average rug, it means no neck is on show when they’re grazing or having a good roll!"
Matt & Malmo: "Oh my god! My rug is fabulous and to say I’m extremely impressed is a huge understatement! You have made the best quality, fit and design of rugs I’ve ever seen in my life 🤩 I’m absolutely in love with it! Now it’s time to start ordering some for the rest of my minis 😍"
Fay & Mobster: "I can not recommend Ponyo Horsewear enough. I absolutely love the attention to detail on the rugs and each little feature really makes them stand out to others on the market. The colours are even more vibrant in real life, not to mention the quality is second to none!! My pony is a rug ripper but his rug hasn’t got a single scratch despite being tested through all the storms this year which also proves their durability. I swear by my rug and I can’t wait to buy a second - thank you Ponyo🤩"
Daisy & Joey: "As Joey spends all day in the field getting up to no good it was important that we could keep him dry and warm without spoiling his fun. His new rug has been absolutely perfect for this, it can be hard to find well fitting rugs for the smaller ponies but Joey tested his out to the max being a classic sassy Shetland in the field. But he stayed completely dry and the rug withstood his antics! We will definitely be buying another one for him and probably his two big friends as they definitely want to look as cool as he does!"
Annica & Annabel: "We live at the coast in northern Sweden and the weather can get very wet, windy and cold (at the same time 😅). But this rug has always kept our horse completely dry! We really love the great quality, especially the secure fastening in the front and that the rug has a long back end, so our horse can turn her back to the wind. 10/10 stars! We will definitely buy another one. Also it's a huge plus that it's super pretty 😍"
Liv & Fred: "Genuinely, this is not only the coolest rug I have seen, but comes with extremely high quality! Firstly, the design of the rug is amazing. You can see the detail that has gone into it and the outcome is original and very fun... definitely suits Fred's personality ;) The difference with Ponyo Horsewear's rugs is that they combine this original and exciting design with really high quality. Although we can't test it in a field at the moment, we did a test with pouring water on it and it is super waterproof!! Another thing about this rug is that it's really adjustable and breathable. I tested it by riding in it for 30 mins and even jumping, even though it's 100g he did not sweat up! Finally, my photos demonstrate how great Ponyo Horsewear have designed these rugs to have such a great range of movement - they are not restrictive at all. Overall, this is an amazing rug and I highly recommend them!
Hazel & Piglet: "I was dubious when I ordered my Ponyo Horsewear rug, with it being a brand new brand. I would normally just buy a big brand name. However I came across Ponyo on Instagram and thought I'd I've it a go. I'm a rug hoarder and I especially love the unique design. Piglet however loves ripping her rugs (ungrateful). I ordered the Watermelon 100g to which I was pleasantly surprised by how beautiful the colours were. The most important thing was the quality of the material, the 1200D rip-stop outer shell is exactly that. If it can withstand Piglet's antics then it can survive anything. I like the fact the rug has detachable leg straps enabling the rug to stay in place in windy weather. Piglet has been known to wear crop tops in the field. She said its fashion, I think it's a nuisance! I will definitely buy again and recommend Ponyo Horsewear to anyone."
Vicky & Grace: "My horse Grace is extremely happy with he new middleweight turnout with the monkeys and bananas on :). It's a fantastic rug that is very good quality and a lovely fit and looks super smart. I will definitely be buying more in the future from Ponyo Horsewear 😍 😍 😍"
Cara & Sophie: "Our old rug got ripped whilst she was playing so we decided to buy her a unique @ponyo.horsewear rug! When the rug arrived we were stunned by the gorgeous colours & quality in the rug! We think the Velcro added on the front is an awesome touch! There is a detachable neck that is super easy to put on and take off! When we put the rug on Cara it was a perfect fit! They were nice and flexible allowing Cara to comfortably gallop off down to the feild! Cara being Cara decided that the first thing she would do was to roll 🤣 but I was so surprised at how easy it was to brush any mud off after! It was nice to leave home knowing Cara was in a nice, comfy and clean rug (for now 😬😂) Really recommend them 🥰
Abigail & Minnie: "Wow these rugs 😍🤩I absolutely love this rug it is gorgeous and fits so well. The pattern is so unique and vibrant that even with the mud the super cute pattern shows through. It is so adjustable and easy to do up and even with the mud it closes securely.The quality is amazing and I love how different they are to other rugs. You definitely won’t find anything like these rugs on the rest of the market these rugs are incredible and one of a kind! Worth every penny!"
Sophie & Zac: "We are very pleased with the rug, it's great quality, well made with a generous cut. Zac is quite narrow but the rug is very adjustable and fits well. It also fits Sophie's sister's pony nicely when loosened at the chest, who has far chunkier shoulders, being as wide as he is tall! Zac feels very cheerful in the rug, he loves having new things and being spoiled!"
Jess & Tilly: "I absolutely love Tilly's new rug and the design, and the quality is just absolutely amazing and fits like a dream, it's super easy to do up and also adjusts amazing to Tilly. Tilly looks amazing in her new rug and is feeling spoiled!"
Barney Boo: "Love this rug ! Has a great design that everyone enjoys ! Fits great round around his shoulders, withers and the fluffy bit protects his mane from being rubbed out. Has kept him lovely and clean/dry. Will definitely be purchasing more in the future!"
Georgina & Archie: “I am very impressed with my Ponyo Horsewear rug, Archie absolutely loves it! They are very well designed, being durable, waterproof as well as breathable. Having a detachable neck is such a good idea and very handy. The huge variety of weights, sizes and lovely, individual patterns make it perfect for all horses. The customer service was wonderful and my parcel arrived quickly. I will definitely be recommending these rugs to others. Thank you!”
