Rug Washing

Welcome to the Horse Rug Whisperer, your trusted partner for horse rug washing and reproofing! We understand that your horse's rug is an important investment. We are here to help you keep your horse rug in top condition, with our professional washing and reproofing service.

Professional washing of horse rugs has many benefits, including:

  1. Maintaining the health of your horse: A dirty or damp rug can be a breeding ground for bacteria, mold, and parasites. These can lead to skin irritations, infections, rubs and other health issues for your horse. Washing can help to eliminate these risks.
  2. Prolonging the life of your rug: Dirt, grime, manure, urine and sweat can weaken the fabric of your rug, making it more prone to damage. Professional washing helps to keep your rug in good condition for longer and ensures that it lasts for many years to come.
  3. Improving the functionality of your rug: A clean and well-maintained rug not only looks better, but it is also more waterproof and breathable.

We only use detergents approved by leading horse rug brands such as Horseware and Bucas and cleaning techniques that are designed to clean your rug without damaging the fabric, and restore your rug's freshness and softness. 

We offer a convenient and hassle-free service, with a range of options for getting your horse rug to us. You can drop your rug off at our shop in Murrumbateman, or at one of our drop off points around the Canberra and Yass Valley regions for a small fee. Once your rug is washed, we will arrange for it to be returned to you as quickly as possible, so your horse can get back to enjoying the comfort of their rug.
