There are a wide range of kinds of pony floor coverings, with different qualities and capabilities. In this manner, the initial step to picking a pony carpet is to conclude which type you expect for your pony. To help you in this choice, following is a rundown of the principal kinds of carpets and a clarification of their capability:
Fly Floor covering. The motivation behind this is to shield the pony from flies that nibble or sting. They are all the more regularly and precisely alluded to as ‘fly sheets’ instead of ‘fly carpets’, as they are normally a dainty plastic sheet or cross section, as opposed to a texture floor covering. One can likewise get ‘fly covers’, which are made from a similar material and are expected to safeguard the head (particularly the eyes and ears) from flies. As they are a slight sheet they give little warmth or Beni rugs protection, albeit some can give insurance from wind and downpour.
Turnout floor coverings. These are expected to give protection (warmth), to safeguard ponies when they are outside. How much warmth relies to a great extent upon how much protection, which is regularly estimated as far as weight instead of thickness. Subsequently, mats with a moderate measure of protection are alluded to as Lightweight Turnout Floor coverings, while those expected for most extreme warmth are known as Weighty Turnout Carpets. Some turnout mats are safe or impenetrable to rain.
Coolers. In spite of the fact that they might seem to be some turnout carpets, their motivation is very unique. They are planned to assist the pony with drying by ‘wicking’ dampness away from its jacket, and simultaneously safeguarding the pony from cooling while wet (a wet pony can immediately become chilled in the event that it is presented to cold or potentially wind while it has a wet coat). They are regularly utilized after work out, when the weather conditions is cool or breezy, and eliminated once the pony has gotten dry. These are otherwise called ‘sweat carpets’.
Downpour sheets. These are regularly a slim sheet, with next to zero protection. It is planned to keep the pony dry and can likewise give assurance from the breeze.
Stable floor coverings. Otherwise called ‘stable covers’, these are like turnout carpets in that they give warming protection, yet are expected to be utilized when the pony is penned as opposed to when it is outside.
Saddle floor coverings. A seat floor covering (otherwise called a ‘saddle cushion’) is put under the seat. It gives padding between the seat and the pony, which shields the pony from the moderately hard seat and simultaneously safeguards the seat from being scoured somewhere near the pony. As the pony will in general perspiration under the seat floor covering, because of the mix of activity and the warming protection given by the seat mat, some have worked in ‘wicking’ materials to assist with eliminating the perspiration from the coat.
