Race Cut Witney Exercise Blanket

 

Product

Early's of Witney pure wool exercise blanket, traditionally cut to fit athletic horses.

These traditional exercise sheets are very warm, super soft and ever so hardwearing, so it's no surprise that they have been used internationally on race horses, sports horses and hunters for generations. Each blanket is fitted and reinforced over the withers and shaped over the quarters.

 These sheets come as standard with girth loops, a matching fillet string and are bound all round in navy.

Red or black binding is also available on request as are mitred corners. Embroidery is also available as an option so please contact us if you require sheets personalising with either a name or initials. 

The 4ft blanket fits up to 15.1, 4ft3" fits up to 16.1 and 4ft6" fits 16.2 to 17 hands.

Provenance

Provenance

Made from traditional Early's of Witney horse blanket. The pure new wool of the blanket is woven on a traditional oversized loom before being milled in to give a finished weight of 750gsm. It's then washed, dryed, combed and brushed a number of times to produce the soft pile whilst retaining its hardwearing qualities.  

Early's of Witney was the iconic English blanket manufacturer providing "Incomparable quality since 1669". Sadly, they have now ceased trading and Friday Fox Ltd has acquired all the remaining stock  of their horse blankets and many of the old machines used by Earlys to make up their blankets.

Here at Friday Fox we then cut the blankets to shape by hand and dart the quarters in before binding the blanket allround with a hard wearing navy binding. Hence, the whole blanket is proudly Made in England.
