Harness the Power of Heated Horse Rug Driers: The Equine Comfort Revolution
In the equestrian world, we’ve always prioritized providing our horses with the best care, comfort, and equipment. And in that spirit, we introduced you to a game-changing innovation: heated horse rug driers. But what exactly are these devices, and why are they fast becoming a staple in stables worldwide? In this blog, we will dive deep into the world of heated horse rug driers, exploring their benefits and impact on equine care.
What are Heated Horse Rug Driers?
Heated horse rug driers are innovative devices designed to dry wet horse rugs quickly and efficiently. These driers use heating elements to evaporate moisture, leaving horse rugs warm, dry, and ready to use. They can dry soaking wet rugs in just four hours. Heated horse rug driers come in a range of sizes and capacities, from compact models for individual horse owners to large-scale units capable of drying multiple rugs at once for commercial stables and equestrian centres.

Why do you need one?
There are many benefits to having a heated horse rug dryer, here are a few reasons for needing one.
Comfort and Care for Your Horse
Imagine slipping on a wet raincoat on a chilly day. Uncomfortable, isn’t it?
Our horses feel the same way. Keeping your horse’s rug dry is a crucial aspect of their comfort, especially during the colder months or in damp climates. A heated horse rug dryer ensures your horse will always have a cozy, dry rug to wear, regardless of the weather.
Wet horse rugs can pose a significant health risk to your horse. They can become a breeding ground for bacteria and mold. Potentially leading to skin irritations and infections. By quickly drying your horse rugs, heated driers help to eliminate these risks. Whilst providing an extra layer of health protection for your equine companion.
Veterinarian, Ursula Palm, MScVM, explains: “Leaving wet or damp blankets to dry on your horse will predispose for skin diseases, such as dermatophilosis (rain scald, rain rot), dermatophytosis (ringworm) and staphylococal dermatitis. For sport horses and geriatric horses, warmed-up blankets may as well be beneficial for the muscles“.
Longevity of Horse Rugs
In addition to ensuring the comfort and health of your horse, heated rug driers also help extend the lifespan of your horse rugs. Continuous exposure to moisture can degrade the materials in horse rugs over time, but quick and efficient drying can prevent this wear and tear, saving you the cost of frequent replacements.
