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

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.

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.
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.
