Most horse owners want their horses to be comfortable.  Horse comfort is important for a number of reasons, first, because horse owners care about their horses, and second, performance can be affected if a horse is not comfortable.  Some people think that horse blankets are unimportant, because horses are such strong animals.  It's true that horses are able to withstand the elements, like most animals.  However, your horse will not be entirely comfortable, healthy, happy, or able to perform without additional protection.  Of course, if you and your horse live in a very mild environment, that may not be true.  Before deciding that your horse doesn't need a horse blanket, check with other local horse owners and local horse caretakers or local equine veterinarians.
