Curious on what brands are preferred for rain sheets on mini's? I'm not looking for warmth, just protection from the relentless rain, and keep clean. I've been eyeing the Amigo petite turnout sheet.

I don't know about rain sheets; that isn't something we deal with much where I live.  But I have the Tough 1 fly sheet and it works very well to keep my horses clean.  Also adds some wind break.

I have had good luck with Big Dee's mini turnout blankets by Country Pride. They offer the same blanket as a rain sheet.

Thank you. A friend of mine mentioned the Amigo petite sheet, anyone try one of those?

I currently use the Tough 1 and they fit very well, but the waterproofing doesn't seem to hold up for prolonged periods of rain.    Great sheets for keeping clean overnight, but I personally haven't had great luck with them as a long term turnout.

I have friends had friends who have used the Amigo on their larger ponies and have been very happy with them.

If I remember correctly, the Amigo doesn't have leg straps.   I personally prefer leg straps for turnouts, especially if it doesn't have a bellyband.    I do really like the looks of their neck cover.

My heavy blanket is a Kensington Cascade and I love it.    Very well made.   Fits great.   I normally do not blanket except in the spring after clipping, but it has been so cold up North this year that I have had to blanket one of them full time.   The Kensington has been waterproof and has stayed in place.   Plus it is quite a bit less expensive than the Amigo.    I plan on purchasing some sheets in this same design before Spring.

I have used Amigo stable sheets, fly sheets and fitted coolers on a 12 hand pony. The quality is nice and they fit super, but like Horselover said, they don't have leg straps so I have shied away from their turnouts for that reason. I have not had trouble with the sheets shifting while the pony is stalled, but out in the pasture might be different. Rolling is a sport to him.

Hmmm decisions. Thank you all for sharing. I think I might try the Amigo, my friend swears by them. It seems so odd they don't have leg straps.

I think I've seen that brand in full-size, but not sure about mini size.
