What is the Chaskit® Self-righting Spider
Developed in England, the spider is the unique
fastening mechanism used exclusively by Chaskit ® Self-Righting
Horsewear. Unlike other blankets, there are no binding surcingles and
leg straps. An "O" ring is centered on the horse's belly at
the girth. Three 1"webbing straps connect to the "O"
ring in the pattern of a Y. The short strap goes between the front legs
and attaches to the front of the blanket. Two bronze snaps with adjustable
"D" rings hold neck closed above the front attachment The
two longer straps pass through an "O" ring on each side of
the blanket near the flank, then go to the inside of each hind leg,
attaching at the back. For safety, a brass "Sailors Snap"
designed to pull apart under heavy tension is used to clip the spider
to the "O" rings at the front and rear of the blanket. This
special design allows the horse complete freedom of movement and "self-rights,"
eliminating any blanket shifting, twisting, and rubbing.
don't shift or twist,
even after a roll !
