CATAGO – Cooler Rug- Tried & Tested
Catago is a growing Brand in the UK & we are so happy that so many of our customers are appreciating the quality of this wonderful company, as always with Divine we do pride ourselves on being able to provide high quality products.
Earlier this year Catago very kindly sent us Catago Cooler Rug, we are always looking for nice fitting rugs which don’t cost the earth. Plus we will never recommend a product or sell one that we haven’t already tried it is our company ethos & we believe that this way we really can give better customer service through in depth knowledge of our products. Luckily Catago agree's with us & allowed us to try the Cooler Rug & ¼ sheet.
With owning many different breeds of horses we struggle with fit when it comes to rugs especially on my beautiful PRE. With this in mind we decided that we would put the cooler rug to the ultimate test & try this rug on Galante with the knowledge of if it fitted then it would be a good one for everyone else.
So the box arrived & in there was the most beautiful Red Cooler rug what immediately struck me was it is very similar to another top brand sold in the UK only half the price! We had ordered a 6’6 rug which is the true size of Galante but again is something we worry about as you never do know how there cut. But I was very pleased & relieved to find out that the rug is indeed true to size & fitted Galante beautifully even around his neck & shoulders. The gorgeous Red colour of the rug really does set it off well & it looks extremely classy without being over the top. Galante is Grey but this colour as you can see above really looks amazing on a Bay as well as Black horses.
I have been using this rug now since we had it which is now over 6 months & it truly is a lovely & highly practical rug, I have had no rubbing, it hasn’t & wont stretch as it has properly stitched edges & it does what it says it wicks really well. I use mine for travelling, cooling down & as a base layer when needed on colder nights.
The rug is available in Red, Anthracite & Black
Its features –
100% acrylic with wool effect. Ideal as transport rug or after training as the material transports excess heat and sweat away from the horse.
The rug has black binding, double front closure, detachable cross surcingle’s and elastic leg straps.
They are an excellent price as well & easily stand up against other more well-known brands on the UK market.
One of the best features is the removable surcingle’s,which gives you the option of how you want to use the rug, high quality buckles mean there is no issues on fastening the rug even after multiple washes & wears.
Oh & it does indeed wash well, however a quick hoover will remove any bedding that has stuck prior to sticking in the washing machine.
They also would be very easy to embroider just like similar but more expensive cooler rugs on the market.
In fact it our next thing to do still is to embroider ours.
The Catago Cooler Rug is available to order from Divine Equestrian – RRP £79.00
That’s a lot of rug for not a lot of money!
