Elicia makes beautiful and durable rump rugs in colors to match whatever tack you use. I have 2 of them and I love them for cool morning rides, breezy winter days, and long-into-the-night 100 milers.
Our Rump Rugs are made of a waterproof breathable exterior fabric and a warm fleece lining that will wick away sweat. The custom tailored design fits most equines and will attach to most saddles with two ties to go to the back D rings or billets. All four corners are weighted, back corners have reflective and there's an adjustable tail strap to keep the rug in place. Included are an additional lower tail strap and low front strings that go to your billets or cinch for use on windy days.
After your horse warms up use our simple elastic and button system to roll the rug up where it sits snug next to your saddle not adding extra heat to your horse. It can be done with one hand from in the saddle on a safe horse. We recommend you try it at home in a safe setting before attempting it on the trail.

Elicia does great work! First, I picked fabric. Then she asked for my horse's measurements, second-guessed me when I got them wrong, and helped me figure out exactly how to measure. A few weeks later, I got a tidy little package in the mail--my new rug! It's got a tough, waterproof, beautiful fabric on the top. It's a little bit rustle-y, but my horse got used to me fidgeting with it quickly. It's got both non-stretchy ties to tie it to the saddle and stretchy elastic loops to wrap around the rolled-up rug when it's not in use, then secure to butons. The back corners are weighted, and there's an under-tail strap that even comes undone on one side with velcro, so you can theoretically remove it and roll it up and secure it without leaving the saddle. I'm not sure I'm talented enough to do it, but it's theoretically possible! She's really thought of everything. But when I thought of one more thing, reflective stripes so it can add to the gaudy reflective gear we use for riding at night, Elicia was happy to add some on for just the tiny cost of materials, and it looks GREAT! I love it, and so does my horse!
