What is a road blanket?

Something you don't hear about very much. Road blankets were loose blankets that covered the horse's body and neck and were designed to go over harness. They were used when horses had to wait an extended amount of time outside or when doing slow work in cold/wet weather. The reins would actually go under the blanket so that the leather was protected.
