Our pony blanket proves that great things do come in small packages. This petite blanket provides all of the benefits of "big horsey" blankets.
Features fully adjustable front buckles. Generous shoulder gussets and tail flap provide the maximum freedom in movement. Features a higher neckline to hug the horse more while romping and playing in the pasture. Detachable criss-cross belly bands and leg straps.
This blanket has a great visibility factor, I have 1 pony & 1 yearling Quarter horse in the pasture with our 2 big Quarter Horses & A big round bale all winter. Every morning I do a head count from the house & the brightness of this blanket helps the pony stand out & be easily seen. this blanket also has just the right amount of denier & fill that she does not sweat or get chilled as she gets a thick winter coat naturally. Thank you from our family & Misty (our Pony) for a well designed blanket that stands up to the beating my Quarter Horses put on each others blankest every winter.

My only regret is that I didn't buy a tonne more of these wonderful blankets. I paid full price but really can't complain as the hardware, straps and over-all design would be equivalent to something far more expensive.
Generous length (front to back and sides), smart stretchy heavy duty surcingle straps, HD leg straps and great shoulder gusset - this was designed by a horse person - YEAH!
As other reviewers have said, the sizes run VERY large. I ordered a 66 for my pony that normally takes a 69/70 and it fits.
I have 3 Pony Poppins blankets and I love them all. Great fit for my young rescue horses. I bought the bubbles pattern for a shetland cross and for my mini. I sent the on for my mini back because the drop was way too long and the surcingles were too long. The one for the shetland cross i tied a knot in the surcingles and it works fine.
My suggestion would be to make the drop and surcingles to match the length. Like a 48in is probably a very close to the ground horse so shorten the drop and surcingles.
I love my Jeffers blankets and hated to have to go to a different brand for my mini.
