Headless Turn Out HoodRegular price Sale price £50.00
The Headless Turn Out Hood from Snuggy Hoods is perfect for all those wanting to keep their horse as clean as possible and protect the mane without covering the face. It covers neck, chest, shoulders & withers and can be used both in the field and stable - rain, shine or snow under any stable or turn out rug.
The Headless Turn Out Hood is fixed in place with an adjustable velcro belly band on the girth. Constructed of a fully breathable, robust, comfortable, machine washable fabric and lined with a seamless, shiny fabric through the mane and shoulder. The Headless Turn Out Hood is water repellent, mud proof and wind proof.
The Headless Turn Out Hood is elasticated and adjustable around the top and cut extra long so it sits securely behind the ears even when the neck is extended down fully to graze. There is the option of a zip - NEW for 2018 super strong YKK zip! - for ease of fitting which runs from top to chest. Without the zip the Hood is ‘pull on’ so simply slipped over the nose and pulled back into position.
Our NO. 1 BEST SELLER for winter mane protection! To avoid winter mane rubbing and subsequently mane loss we recommend to use the Headless Turn Out Hood all Winter WITHOUT high or full neck rugs as much as possible. We suggest to only use rugs with necks on very wet or very cold days - the Headless Turn Out Hood is more than adequate protection for your horse or pony otherwise.

FITTING ADVICE - please ensure the following ... (and watch the fitting videos)
The surcingle is designed to sit ON THE GIRTH - as near the foreleg as possible and as tight as possible to prevent it slipping back along the body.
The cuff around the head end of the hood should be TIGHT ! This is to prevent the hood sliding back along the neck.
When the horses head is down eating he or she should take up all the slack in the neck. If in doubt - do not turn out. Contact us directly with photos if possible.
