Kensington Arctic Twister 1680D Blanket
Specially Designed for Miniatures and Ponies
The Arctic Twister is a waterproof, breathable, long-lasting blanket your mini will love to wear. It’s designed with double buckle and double hook-and-loop closures on the front and belly band to make sure the blanket stays on. This blanket has a great fit thanks to the tail piece and the five-dart fitted rump. A cut back neck with polar lining helps avoid mane rubbing.
You’ll love the durability of this blanket; the coating is made from a new Hyrtel technology by DuPont on 1680 Denier Cordura. It’s lined with 300 grams of fiberfill backed with show coat lining for the perfect look. The outer shell is treated with a water- and stain-repellent coating. Also available with 80g fill option.

Stand your horse as square as possible, and measure from the center of chest around side of the body to the point of the horse's rump just before the tail. If your horse ends up measuring between sizes, always round up to the next size to ensure full coverage.
To keep your blanket as comfortable as possible for your horse and to maximize the blanket's life, it is recommended that you clean your blanket annually. First, remove excess dirt from the outside of the blanket with a brush and hose. The blanket can then be washed either by hand, or on a delicate cycle with cool water in a commercial washer. Use only very mild soap. When the blanket has been washed, allow to drip dry and ensure that the blanket is thoroughly dry before storage. Do not put your horse's blanket in the dryer or wash with hot water. Do not store your horse's blanket if damp or wet. This will damage the waterproof coating and void any warranties.
Horses Turned Outside Without Shelter:
Kensington Turnout Sheet and Blanket materials are waterproof and designed to keep your horse dry. However, if your horse is turned out in a field without a run in shed or shelter during prolonged rain or heavy downpours, your horse may still get wet, especially in the neck and tail areas.
When using a blanket or sheet, it is critical to monitor the fluctuating climate and temperatures, even with a blanket that is waterproof and breathable. The wicking properties of a breathable blanket are designed to wick away normal body heat. When a blanket is too heavy, the heat and moisture cannot be wicked away fast enough, causing your horse to sweat. The temperature and the length of your horse’s coat will determine what weight of blanket you should use. For this reason, most people who choose to blanket horses have several articles of horse clothing that offer varying levels of warmth.
