Horseware Ireland is a leading producer of equestrian and pet products including rugs, therapeutics, and accessories, as well as a range of performance and casual clothing for men, women, and children. Founded in 1985 by Tom and Carol MacGuinness, their determination to produce a rug that didn’t leak, didn’t make the horse sweat and didn’t slip led to the creation of the first fully waterproof and breathable turnout that really worked. From that day since, Horseware Ireland commits to going further than anyone else to create breakthrough equestrian products for riders to have the best possible experience with their horse.
Horseware Ireland Rug Range
Horseware Ireland’s Rambo revolutionized the equine industry with the introduction of Ballistic Nylon over 30 years ago and is now sold all over the world, renowned for its quality, durability and longevity. The iconic Rambo ® original turnout was a revolution in the design, fit and quality of horse rugs. The original Rambo ® turnout continues to be produced in Ireland and the company has won numerous awards for its groundbreaking innovative products.
Nylon 66 is significantly stronger than the more commonly used nylon 6. In addition, the thermobonded fiberfill resists compression, thereby maintaining its loft and thermal capacity. Horseware Ireland’s fiber is also manufactured from 80% recyclable material highlighting Horseware Ireland’s commitment to the environment.
The Rhino range has become known for its unparalleled strength and sophistication and recognized by its trademark cheque design. Horseware Ireland’s Rhino range is made of 1000D Polypropylene, paired with Aquatrans technology - a technical layer which enables the fabric to breathe, whilst also allowing incredible water pressure resistance (waterproofness). This results in an impenetrable and unbeatable exterior.
Horseware Ireland’s Amigo range is manufactured from industry standard polyesters in varying deniers and are offered in 600D ripstop, 900D and 1200D.
The Amigo range is one of Horseware Ireland’s most popular ranges due to the great quality, dependability, and waterproofness at an affordable price.

Did You Know
We make enough rugs every day to cover a soccer field, which is enough to cover roughly 300 soccer fields every year.
Our rugs are tested for at least one year before they hit the shelves, and in many cases they’re in testing for up to three years.
Our rugs are tested on at least 20 horses before they launch, from tiny ponies to huge draft horses, with all sorts of breeds, sizes and shapes in between, to ensure the perfect fit for your horse.
We keep a Rambo rug on the roof of our factory in Ireland, just for luck. (And to test the waterproofing!)
Our Rambo rugs are made from ballistic nylon, a fabric that was first developed for flak jackets to be worn by World War II airmen.
