Over 30000 Blankets Washed Each Year

All Services Guaranteed

We have tested many products. If we don't like how they work on our blankets we won't use them on yours. We think we have come across the right combination of products to give you the best satisfaction. We use only environmentally friendly, mild soap and disinfectant to safely clean your blankets and keep our environment safe from toxins. We only line dry blankets so you do not get shrinkage. Although, sweat sheets (waffle) and some wool blankets may still shrink. This is just the nature of the material and can't be helped. These blankets can be pulled back to size with care. All blankets are tagged and returned in a labeled, zippered bag. We recycle bags if they are returned clean.

Our repairs are done with care. Eventhough we can repair any blanket, we keep the customers pocket book in mind. We take the age, type of blanket, and how big the repair, in consideration. Of course we may not see how bad the blanket is before it is cleaned, so if you suspect your blanket will be more than $70 to repair, please don't hesitate to leave us a note or talk to me personally before we clean or repair it. We will not go over $70 without speaking with the customer first. If we accidentally repair more than $50 without speaking with the customer, we discount it back down to $70.

When you purchase a new blanket and it says that it is a waterproof blanket it means one of two things. One, the underside of the outer material was treated with a coating. This will be your best chance that your horse will stay dry short of putting a tarp over them. Some new waterproof blankets won’t be completely waterproof!!! If this happens and you did not make it through the season, take it back!!! Once this coating starts to deteriorate, your blanket will definitely start to leak. You, nor your blanket servicing company, can tell when this coating is no longer working. There is no set length of time. It all depends on the fabric itself and the wear and tear of the blanket. That brings us to the fabric. Some fabrics, no matter what, are more likely to leak. It all depends on how tight the weave of the fabric is and what kind of material the fabric is made from. It won’t matter what coating you put on some fabrics. Some will leak no matter what. Two, the blanket has Gore-Tex sheeting inside. This is great until the sheeting tears either by the horse snagging or stepping on the blanket. Once this happens, there is no mending it to be waterproof.

What does it mean when your blanket service says waterproofing? Well, they are not really waterproofing, they are using water repellant. This is either a wash in or topical treatment to the outside of the outer material. It helps water repel and run off the blanket. They Do Not stop water from going through the fibers. It only coats the fibers. Again, it depends on how tight the weave of the fabric is and how long of an exposure to rain. It is only meant to help the original waterproofing from the manufacturer. It will not take the place of the failing coating on the inside of the blanket.

So what does this all mean to you? Well, if your horse will be standing outside in the rain for hours and you find that he/she is getting wet, then it may be time for a new blanket instead of having it water repelled. If your horse is brought in or is only drizzly rain, then you may consider having your blanket water repelled. It should keep him/her dry enough until you can get them under cover. You may get quite a few good years from your blanket in many cases. Just keep in mind that this repellant, no matter which one, won’t keep your horse completely dry forever. These coatings do wear out

Things that will breakdown the manufacturing waterproofing and the water repellant: Washing in harsh detergents, putting them in a dryer, leaving them dirty, letting them sit in the sun, your horse rolling and rubbing against the ground, rips, snags and tears, and mold.

Wrapping it up in a nutshell; waterproofing is not really waterproofing when it comes to fabric. It will all depend on the type of fabric, how dense the weave of the fabric is, the duration of the rain, the heaviness of the rain, and does your horse roll with his blanket. No one can guarantee that your horse will not get wet; we can only try and help.


I was packing for a show and at the last minute realized the decorative braiding was coming apart from the blanket.
I called Horse Authority to see if they could help me immediately. Allyne told me to to bring it over and she would personally fix it while I watied.
It took about 10 minutes and I was on my way. I really apprecated that last minute help!
