Manufacturer guarantees and warranties
Most blanket manufacturers have good warranties against defects in materials & workmanship. Most do not have any warranty or guarantee for water repellent or water proofing, nor does Horse and Hound Blanket HQ. Manufacturers seem to find it difficult to guarantee a horse blanket/sheet coating, which is exposed to extreme outdoor elements for long periods of time.
Most manufacturers won’t cover wear and tear items, i.e. rips, tears, bites, rolling on the ground/in the mud, causing broken straps, buckles, clips, etc.
