Re: [RC] Rumps Rugs - Truman Prevatt

The same reason that baseball players wear wool "sleeves" in cold weather games. The same reason you might see a cross country runner in sweats in a March meet in Indiana when it is 45 degrees. The same reason you might see a long jumper jumping in sweats at a track meet in March in Indiana when it is 45 degrees. To keep the muscles warm and working properly. The reason it is flapping and laying off to the side it is not made well. I've had a bad rump rug and I now have a good one. Do you need them often - probably not. However, on a day when the water is frozen on the water bucket when you start - they come in mighty handy.

*/What is the purpose of a rump rug while riding on the trail??? What I have seen is a large piece of material flapping up & down or hanging off to one side. Is it suppose to be keeping the horse warm??? I always thought it is best for the horse to be shedding heat, maybe not, just asking??? I don,t want to buy one. jvm/*
