Hoods, Vests & Bibs
Hoods – Horse hoods are an ideal way to keep your horse’s neck area and mane clean and help keep those perfect plaits neat and tidy. They are also an option to add extra warmth if he or she needs it..
Hoods are also a good item to use if you are training your horses mane to stay on one side. Hoods are usually made of a stretchy Lycra material or stretchy fabric which allows a more comfortable snug fit to your horse and doesn’t ride up or down as the horse moves, therefore preventing any irritation to your horse’s eye/mouth area. Hoods usually have a zip to make fitting and taking off easier (or easy as it can be!) and keep a pretty snug fit when on.
Bibs and Vests – Anti Rub Bibs, Shoulder Guards and Vests are mostly used for protection against any rubbing or irritation in the shoulder and wither areas of your Horse or Pony. Like the hoods, they are usually made of a flexible stretchy material such as Lycra but often come in a nylon or polyester material which use elasticated straps for snug fitting and extra padding and soft materials where it’s needed most, some even feature Merino wool. Check out the Lemieux Anti Rub Bib which really ticks all the boxes if rubbing is an issue.
