Horse Shoulder Guard
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.
The Horse Shoulder Guard is made from the same clever fabric as the Lightweight Rug Liner which is useful to prevent rug rubs across the rest of the body. As featured in Horse and Hound's - Six of the Best Bibs, Shoulder Savers and Under Rugs

It is important that Silky Bibs are not too big as this may cause slipping backwards behind the wither. If your horse/pony seems to be between sizes or has a narrow chest and is finely built choose a size smaller.
