PVC Mesh Summer Horse Rug New In Store!

PVC Mesh Summer Horse Rug New In-Store!

You asked for it, and we listened! Bang For Your Buck Horsegear is pleased to announce a new arrival to our collection. Our NEW PVC Mesh summer horse rug is a more durable summer option for those with rough paddocks, shared paddocks or simply horses that are hard on rugs.

We started with the highest quality UV Resistant PVC Mesh Fabric for the basis of this combo. Now, PVC mesh is tough as old boots in terms of rips but in most cases, this tough fabric will fail at the centre seam of the rug first, which is why we’ve eliminated the weakness and removed the centre seam. We’ve added rump darts and belly bands so you have a rug that doesn’t move on the horse but will last!

It also has all of our Standard BFYB Features Including:

  •  UV Resistant PVC mesh
  •  UV Resistant Marine Grade Stabilized threads used
  •  Heavy-duty buckles and clips
  •  Bar-Tac Reinforced fittings, necks and gussets
  •  Extended wither fleece protection
  •  Tent Tail Flap
  •  Dual chest straps
  •  Crossover surcingles
  •  Removable leg straps
  •  Shoulder gussets
  •  Satin Lining in shoulder and mane
  •  Generous size and Drop (No Mini Skirts!)

At 550GSM it is a tough, but lightweight summer horse rug to suit most horses. We have it in a wide variety of sizes, and the best part? Our introductory price of just $79!!!!!! This price won’t last forever, so get in now before they sell out.

5 Riding Trails in SE QLD To Check Out

5 Riding Trails in SE QLD To Check Out

We all have our own special local riding trails that we frequent when out trail riding. While handy, occasionally you might want to try somewhere different for your horse and yourself. Today’s blog post is 5 places around South East QLD that have trails for horse riding. While there may be a distance for some of you, don’t worry! We will gradually make sure we cover as much area as possible.

Today’s focus is on the horse riding trails within National Parks in the Brisbane, western suburbs and northern Gold Coast areas. Thanks and credit goes to the Department of Environment & Science (Parks & Forests) for the maps linked in this blog post.

National Parks

  1. Samford Conservation Park – The first place on our list of horse riding trails is Samford Conservation Park. The Ironbark Gully area is perfect for a trail ride, as it has float parking available. Located about 20 mins away from Brisbane city in the north-west, there are many things to do. The horse riding trail is a shared one, with pedestrians and bicycle riders. Please make sure you look up the regulations and obey them, and stay safe by wearing a helmet and using common sense.
  2. D’Aguilar National Park – Made up of 2 sections (South D’Aguilar and Mount Mee), this area is located also around 20 minutes drive from Brisbane city, not too far away from the Samford Park. Once again, you will be sharing the trail with pedestrians and cyclists, so be aware and stay safe.
  3. Daisy Hill Conservation Park – is half an hour south of Brisbane city, and easily accessible using the M1 highway from the city. One of the extra bonuses of the Daisy Hill trail is its koala conservation area. They have their own special classification sheet for both horse and bike trails so you can make an informed choice about you and your horse’s capabilities.
  4. Nerang National Park – Located in the eastern Gold Coast Hinterland, Nerang is only a 10-minute drive off the Pacific Motorway. Like the other trails, the Nerang trails are shared in some places with bicycles and pedestrians.
  5. Glen Rock State Forest – is located about half an hour drive south of Gatton in the beautiful, wide open Lockyer Valley. For some, this will be a longer trip so it will pay off to be prepared. There is a shared trails map for you to view in order to plan your trip.

We hope this has given you some ideas for viewing our natural surroundings on horseback. Planning a trip and need horse rugs for your time away? Get in contact with us for the best options. Have a fantastic weekend, everyone!

Horse Rug Sizes For Big & Small

Horse Rug Sizes For Big & Small

horse rugs all sizesHorse rug sizes for cows?! Check out this super-cute little fella!!! This little buffalo calf is snug and warm in his mini-sized Bang For Your Buck Horse Rug! As you can see, our quality horse rugs come small enough for the littlest foal (or calf!) to the biggest draft horse.

Our horse rug sizes are designed in Australia and made for our climate. Today, Bang For Your Buck Horsegear has become the fastest growing manufacturer of quality summer and winter horse rugs. With our horse rugs sizing, we’ve taken into account that it’s not just the length of the rug that matters. We also adapt the size of the neck rugs in the combos and the drop of the rugs to make sure neither of these is too short or too long for the rug size.

We understand that when buying online, it can be tricky to pick the right size for your horse. Not only does height vary, but their build, shoulder width, and chest depth can be varying. The best way to work out what size rug you need, is to measure your horse. Then compare it to the measurement of the rug you want to purchase.

The other consideration with this colder weather arriving is rug thickness. Horse rug fill is measured in a unit called a denier. The higher the number, the thicker and warmer the horse rug is.

Depending on your needs, 1200D is the most popular one for a winter rug.  In general, a 1200 Denier would have a fabric weight of 370gsm but it is very common in these days, some manufacturers use 300gsm to compete for the price.  The material looks the same and almost feels the same but its strength and durability will be down to 20% thinner.
