Healthy Tips for Horse Care
Barrington Saddlery’s “Wear n Tear” Department is a full service equestrian laundry and repair service that launders your horse's dirty, damaged blankets, cleans and refurbishes them to extend the life of the blanket and ensure your horses health.
Blankets are washed in commercial front-loading machines in cool water using an eco-friendly, PH-balanced laundry solution. Our sanitizing wash process eliminates manure, urine, mud, bacteria, and viruses. Extra care is taken to remove hair and to hand-clean velcro. Blankets are air-dried to prevent shrinkage. Only a professional laundry service can offer this level of care.
Making sure that horse blankets, boots, and saddle pads are clean and hygienic for horses is vitally important. They can all become heavily soiled with hair, dust and bacteria which can reduce their lifespan and more importantly cause skin irritations and fungal infection on the horse.
Laundered Items Include
Bulk Laundry (towels, rags, wraps, etc.)
English & Western Saddle Pads

Durable, Attractive Repairs
Our repair shop is stocked with a variety of hardware, material, velcro and webbing. From patching a small hole or replacing a surcingle, to reconstructing a blown-out gusset or customizing a chest closure, we’ve got you covered!
Water Repellency Restored
One of the main reasons for purchasing a turnout blanket is water repellency. Quality durable water repellent (DWR) applied by the manufacturer should last at least two seasons, provided your blanket has been cared for properly. Our wash process does not destroy water proofing. In fact, it rejuvenates and maintains it so that your horse stays dry. If you wish at that time, we will gladly re-proof your blanket.
