I might get a turnout sheet or a sweat sheet. Shadow stands out in the rain and gets all wet but she is getting a shelter built today. She sometimes gets sweaty when I ride her. Should I get a turnout sheet or a sweatsheet?

Get a sweatshirt/cooler to use after you ride her and to dry her off with. A sweatsheet shouldn't be used in the pasture. If you want something for her to wear while she is turned out, get a waterproof rain sheet or lightweight sheet. To be honest, I wouldn't even bother with the turnout sheet. You're in florida right? It won't get too cold there and if it's raining for a long time the sheet could get wet and maybe a little wet on the inside and that would cause her to get chilled an would be worse than not wearing anything at all. The best protection for a horse is it's natural coat. When you put a sheet or blanket on a horse, you are pressing the hairs down which is essentially taking away the horse's natural ability to stay warm and protect itself.[/quote]yes, I live in Florida.I was worried that the wind would get her chilled after her workout or bath.

If you are worried about that, then go ahead and get a cooler. The cooler could be used to dry her off from the rain, keep her clean before a show, and cool her out and wick away sweat after a ride to keep her from getting chilled. A cooler is just another name for a sweatsheet

Though she be but little, she is fierce

okay. Could you help me find a cooler? Shadow wears a 72 and my price limit is $50-$70.
