The Snuggy Lycra Hood is made of the finest, durable, nylon shiny spandex which is comfortable and breathable. This stretch Lycra Hood covers face, ears, shoulders, neck, mane, withers and chest. It features an optional zip, adjustable noseband, elastic chest strap and velcro belly band. There is the option of a zip for ease of fitting which runs from chin to chest. Without the zip the Lycra Hood is ‘pull on’ so simply slipped over the nose and pulled back into position the secured with the belly band.
ZIP OR PULL ON ? - we would always recommend a pull on hood unless the horse is head shy. Why? Less fiddly, Less to break, Less Bulky. If your horse is head shy or would find fitting stressful or upsetting, we would always recommend a zipped hood.
**PLEASE STUDY THE FITTING ADVICE CAREFULLY - WE DO RECOMMEND THAT THE HORSE IS STABLED WHEN FIRST TRYING ANY HOOD**
Our unique design and generous neck length ensures a perfect, comfortable and secure fit. The Lycra Hood is designed to be used for show/event preparation to achieve ultimate coat shine, keep dust/forage/bedding out of the coat/mane and also to lay the hair flat. It is a fantastic Hood for keeping plaits in place either overnight in the stable or whilst travelling to a show. It is suitable for use at a show, in the stable, lorry or trailer. The Lycra Hood can be used with any rug as it is self-fixing.
TOP TIP- Hate the ears being covered ? Simple cut off - once you are happy with the fit of course !!
We don't recommend the Snuggy Lycra Hood for outdoor use. The Snuggy Lycra Body Rug is designed to be worn with our Lycra Body Rug to offer complete nose to tail coverage for the show season, keeping coat super shiny and dust free.

The Snuggy Lycra Hood and Lycra Body Rug combination will help you achieve show ring shine like the professionals! We strongly believe a two piece (Hood and Rug) combination is more comfortable for the horse or pony to wear as in our experience all-in-one Lycra suits can ride backwards creating pressure and pulling up into the eyes/face. A Hood and Rug combo offers more flexibility for usage (each items can be used individually) and it is also possible to achieve a better fit as the Hoods and Rugs are sized separately.
The Snuggy Lycra Hood can be easily washed in a domestic machine on a normal cycle. When washing always remember to do up the zip and velcro to prevent snagging and to prolong the life of the fabric/velcro. To protect your washing machine from mud, grit and loose hair use the Snuggy Laundry Bag to wash your horse's Snuggy items.
PLEASE NOTE - The Lycra Hood sizing is generous due to the stretchy fabric so please choose a smaller size rather than bigger if your horse/pony falls between sizes. Please contact us for sizing advice before purchasing if you are unsure.
Sizes – XS to XXL (see size guide tab for more detailed sizing advice)
Colours - Black, Navy, Burgundy
PLEASE BE INCREDIBLY FUSSY WITH THE FITTING OF ANY PRODUCT COVERING THE HORSES FACE. DO NOT LEAVE YOUR HORSE UNATTENDED UNLESS YOU ARE CONFIDENT THAT THE HORSE IS HAPPY AND THAT YOU ARE HAPPY WITH THE FIT. IF UNSURE, PLEASE REMOVE IT IMMEDIATELY AND CONTACT US, OR PHOTOGRAPH IT ON YOUR HORSE IF YOU WOULD LIKE US TO CHECK.
AS WITH ANY ITEM, ILL FIT CAN CAUSE RUBBING AND CAN MOVE WHICH CAN BE DANGEROUS. THAT SAID, WE MUST ADD, THAT THE BEST FITTING HOOD AND RUG CAN MOVE IF CAUGHT ON SOMETHING OR RUBBED OR PULLED AT. UNFORTUNATELY WE ARE UNABLE TO ACCEPT RESPONSIBILITY FOR THIS.
Lightweight Rug Liner
The Lightweight Rug Liner (formerly Petticoat Rug) is a made of a soft, silky fabric which helps prevent rubs or chaffing on withers, chest, shoulders, body & hips. Suitable for use under any rug, all year round, the Lightweight Rug Liner also creates coat shine.
It is easy to fit and easy to wash, so ideal for use under thick Winter rugs to keep grease out of the coat and keep heavy rug linings clean. Just wash the Lightweight Rug Liner regularly for shiny, clean coat! Lightweight, easy to fit and to wash (in the washing machine) - an essential addition to the Snuggy wardrobe!
The Lightweight Rug Liner has a loop at the chest for rug buckles and loops for your Snuggy Hood surcingle and leg straps for added security. It is made from the same clever fabric as our silky Shoulder Guard which is used to prevent rubs on chest, shoulders and withers only.
Sizes - 4'6 - 7'0
Colours - Navy (very dark)
*PLEASE NOTE* The Lightweight Rug Liner sizing is not generous as the fabric is not stretchy so if your horse/pony is between sizes choose the bigger option.
TOP TIP For a fantastic shiny, clipped Winter coat - use a Lightweight Rug Liner under a Winter Under Rug (formerly Spik & Span) - in the field or stable! Layer your turn out/stable rugs on top as required. The Lightweight Rug Liner will add shine and keep grease from building up on the coat (remember to wash the liner regularly) and the Winter Under Rug will add a layer of warmth and keep the belly warm, clean and dry. This combination will help keep a dull, clipped Winter coat shiny, clean and better still - make the hair grow back less quickly = clip less often!
Lycra Body Rug
The Snuggy Lycra Body Rug is made of the finest nylon shiny spandex which is comfortable and breathable. This stretch lycra Rug covers chest, shoulders, body and full belly with an XL tail flap.
The Lycra Body Rug is designed to be used for show/event preparation to achieve ultimate coat shine, keep dust/forage/bedding out of the coat and also to lay the hair flat. It is suitable for use at a show, in the stable, lorry or trailer. The Lycra Body Rug can be used alone or under another rug.
The Snuggy Lycra Body Rug is designed to be worn with our Lycra Hood to offer complete nose to tail coverage for the show season, keeping coat super shiny and dust free.
This Body Rug is best teamed with the Snuggy Lycra Hood but can also be used alone or with any other self fixing hood. The Snuggy Lycra Body Rug and Lycra Hood combination will help you achieve show ring shine like the professionals! We strongly believe a two piece (Hood and Rug) combination is more comfortable for the horse or pony to wear as in our experience all-in-one Lycra suits can ride backwards creating pressure and pulling up into the eyes/face. A Hood and Rug combo offers more flexibility for usage (each items can be used individually) and it is also possible to achieve a better fit as the Hoods and Rugs are sized separately.
PLEASE NOTE - The Lycra Body Rug sizing is generous due to the stretchy fabric so please choose a smaller size rather than bigger if your horse/pony falls between sizes. Please contact us for sizing advice before purchasing if you are unsure.

Horse Shoulder Guard
The Snuggy Horse Shoulder Guard (formerly Silky Bib) is suitable for use under any rug or hood to prevent rubs to chest, shoulders and withers. The fabric is lightweight, silky, cool and comfortable so suitable for use all year round.
It has no seam at the withers and has a rug buckle loop at the chest for security. Otherwise there are no clips, straps or buckles. After extensive trials we found this 'non-fixed' design the most successful in terms of horse/pony comfort and preventing rubbing. From experience we find fixed, stretchy shoulder bibs the least successful.
Fully machine washable, just wash in a domestic machine on a normal cycle. We recommend to wash the Horse Shoulder Guard regularly to prevent any skin irritation from grease/dirt and also to prolong the life of the fabric.To protect your washing machine from loose hairs and dirt use the Snuggy Laundry Bag to wash the Shoulder Guard and any other 'horsey' items.
The Horse Shoulder Guard is one of our best selling Winter products! Snuggy Hoods have manufactured this style of Shoulder Guard for over 20 years with little change proving its simple design is effective and extensively used on all types of horses, ponies and even donkeys.
Sizes - XS to XXL (See size guide tab for a more detailed guide).
Colour - Navy
PLEASE NOTE - It is important that the Snuggy Horse Shoulder Guard is not too big for the horse or pony. If too large it may be able slip backwards or twist in use. Please contact us for sizing advice if you are unsure.
Set of four soft, soft polar fleece boots for travelling or for keeping legs clean and warm in the stable.
The Snuggy Fleece Travel Boots are a blessing for horses and ponies that don't like the rigid, bulky design of traditional travel boots. These boots are flexible and comfortable as well as super protective so are ideal for 'fussy' travellers, young or nervous horses/ponies, or those which simply prefer a lighter weight travel boot.
This versatile set of fleece travel boots are also excellent for support in the stable, helping warm stiff and/or arthritic joints and also reduce filling or swelling in lower limbs whilst standing in the stable for longer periods. Snuggy fleece travel boots also are fantastic at wicking away moisture from damp legs which helps prevent mud fever.
The boots have extra strong Velcro tab fastenings, which are hugely adjustable, and are padded for warmth, protection and comfort. Snuggy Fleece Boots are a Winter essential for many horse owners. They are machine washable so easy to care for.
CLICK HERE to view the Snuggy Boots product information video.
Just remember to fasten all the velcro when washing or storing so hay/hair/bedding doesn't collect in the sticky side! Use with the Fleece Tail Guard for full protection whilst travelling.
CLICK HERE to find out why showing producers Team Harvey use the Snuggy Fleece Boots for show preparation.
SIZING TIPS - For travelling purposes we recommend the fleece travel boots cover the knees and the hocks for maximum protection. If buying for use as stable wraps or for warming up/working in we recommend you choose one size smaller.
Sizes - XS to L (See size guide tab for more info) If you need further help please contact us.
Waterproof Tail Bag
The Snuggy Waterproof Tail Bag, is quick and easy to use and can be worn in the stable, field, at a show or for travelling - helping to keep your horse or pony's tail clean, dry and tidy.
Waterproof Tail Bag has been cleverly designed to be used with either traditionally plaited, pulled or full tails. A nifty central Velcro strap is threaded through the plaited tail (below the dock) to secure the bag, and then an elasticised toggle pulls around the tail at the top of the bag for added security.
The toggle system helps prevent any muck, mud, forage or bedding getting into the bag, but also allows owners with horses that have extra long tails to 'loop' the bag back up in half, to prevent it dragging on the floor or being trodden on. This also means it's suitable for use when riding at home or warming up at a show as the Waterproof Tail Bag is folded up out the way. A Velcro opening allows the bottom of the bag to be opened so that the tail can be guided through by hand, therefore ensuring the tail is kept smooth and tangle free when fitting.
The unique design of the Waterproof Tail Bag ensures that the majority of the tail is covered, allowing owners to continue bandaging the top half of the tail for protection or finish. Because the tail does not have to be plaited for use, it saves time and fuss as well as leaving the horse with smooth, clean, kink free locks. As the dock is not covered the Waterproof Tail Bag can be left on for longer periods and is safe to use out in the field.
Excellent for use with the Snuggy Tail Guard for ultimate tail protection whilst travelling. Also fantastic for use in the field along with the Turn Out Hood and Winter Under Rug. This combination of products will help keep your horse or pony mud free from nose to tail all Winter saving you hours of grooming time!

Fleece Tail Guard
The Fleece Tail Guard is made from soft, fleece and thickly padded for maximum tail protection whilst travelling in a lorry or trailer. The clever design ensures that pressure is distributed evenly for total comfort. It has strong, elasticated velcro straps for a close, secure and comfortable fit.
The Fleece Tail Guard is really simple to fit and easy to use for any equine journey. It also features rise padding to protect the area at the top of the tail which is most susceptible to rubbing. Fleece Tail Guard offers unbeatable protection for the dock area but also allows the area to breath and the soft fleece wicks away any moisture due to sweating. Therefore it is an ideal choice when travelling horses, ponies or donkeys all year round.
High quality polar fleece
Thick padding for protection
Strong, elasticated velcro straps
Distributes even pressure
The Fleece Tail Guard is machine washable. Remember to do up the velcro tabs when washing to prevent loose hair and 'bits' getting stuck in the rough hook side. This will also prolong the life of the fabric and velcro. To protect your washing machine from muck, dirt and loose hair use the Snuggy Laundry Bag to wash the Tail Guard.
For a protected and totally clean tail whilst travelling to shows use the Fleece Tail Guard with the Snuggy Waterproof Tail Bag - especially useful for white tails! Snuggy Fleece Travel Boots are also an perfect choice for use with the Fleece Tail Guard for use in the lorry or trailer.

DIRECTIONS FOR USE
Shake well before use. Always patch test an area first and wait 48 hours. If a reaction occurs stop use immediately. Spray evenly over the required areas taking care not to saturate as this may cause irritation, a little goes a long way. Brush through manes and tails after application to ensure hair is covered. Allow to dry before turning horse or pony out. Reapply every seven days or as necessary depending on mud conditions. Do not use under boots or rugs. Do not use on broken, sore or bare skin. Always patch test an area first and wait 48 hours. If a reaction occurs stop use immediately.
Mud fever can be prevented by keeping your horse clean and dry and treating any cuts and grazes as soon as they occur. However, we don’t live in a perfect world, so most horses are exposed to muddy and wet conditions over winter.
The key to preventing mud fever is to prevent prolonged mud contact, minimise skin trauma and maintain healthy skin & a healthy immune system.
Preventing prolonged mud contact
Where horses are turned out in wet and muddy conditions paddock boots can be used to protect the legs from mud. However, they need careful attention to prevent rubbing and skin trauma. Nettex Barrier Cream helps protect skin from mud and also has antibacterial and moisturising properties to keep skin supple and in great condition.
The next generation of protection from mud are barrier sprays.Nettex Seven Day Mud Awayacts in the same way as a barrier cream, but is easier to apply.Nettex Seven Day Mud Awayprevents mud sticking to the coat allowing quick removal by simple brushing. Application is required only once a week and it provides an effective barrier against mud meaning less washing of legs in the winter and making management much simpler.
Maintaining healthy skin and a healthy immune system will mean that your horse will be less likely to suffer from mud fever. Good general healthcare and ensuring that your horse has a balanced diet are essential. Feeding an oil that has high levels of essential fatty acids will improve skin and coat condition.
