The Snuggy Hoods Turn Out Hood is the ultimate time-saver for the busy rider when bringing wet, muddy horses in from the field. It gives back hours spent grooming and clipping so that you have more time to ride and enjoy your horse or pony. It can also be used in the stable to prevent stable stains and to protect plaits before a show being the most versatile Hood on the market!

Used & Endorsed by Olympic event rider Mary King! See the Turn Out Hood being fitted and used by Mary HERE

Constructed of a robust yet breathable, shower proof, fully washable, stretch fabric and lined with a silky shoulder and mane saver to prevent these areas from being rubbed or chaffed. It is designed for use all year round.

The Turn Out Hood also features a water repellent finish, an adjustable nose for better fit, self-fixing surcingle and elastic poll adjusters for added security. It is fully breathable and comfortable as well as mud proof and wind proof.

There is the option of a zip - NEW for 2018 super strong YKK zips! - for ease of fitting which runs from chin to chest. Without the zip the Hood is ‘pull on’ so simply slipped over the nose and pulled back into position. Now with Ears as standard. Ears can be easily cut off if not required.

This best selling Winter Hood is silky lined so helps protect your horse or pony's mane and shoulder from rubbing. We recommend to use the Turn Out Hood with a standard neck rug. Try to avoid using high neck rugs as much as possible to avoid excess heat/pressure on the mane area which can result in hair loss. We suggest to only use rugs with necks on very wet or very cold days - the Turn Out Hood is more than adequate protection for your horse or pony otherwise.

The Turn Out Hood is a firm favourite at Martin Keighley Racing keeping racehorses clean whilst they enjoy time out in the field - CLICK HERE to find out more.

TOP TIP - Grease is a common cause for mane loss/rubbing. To reduce mane loss use the Headless Turn Out Hood but wash it regularly to keep the lining grease free. Ensure the mane is clean and non greasy too for best results!

Use the Turn Out Hood alongside the Winter Under Rug (formerly Spik & Span Rug) or Fleece Jams Rug for complete coverage and protection from the elements. With full belly coverage in either fleece or weatherproof fabric, these combinations keep your horse or pony's tummy warm and clean, preventing hairy, cold, muddy tummies and giving you more time to enjoy your horse.

Different fabrics will fit slightly differently due to the difference in stretch. Please read the following advice if you feel your horse may be between sizes or you are unsure which size to choose.
Shiny Show Lycra Hoods are very stretchy so choose smaller rather than bigger.

Our weather proof fabric has a medium amount of stretch so choose the size which best describes your horse when referring to the size guide above. This applies to Turn Out Hoods, Headless Turn Out Hoods, Turn Out Heads, Sweet Itch Hoods, Sweet Itch Heads and Headless Sweet Itch Hoods

Fleece only has a 2 x way stretch so choose bigger rather than smaller if in between sizes.

Please contact us if you have any questions about sizing. All Hoods come complete with fitting instructions to help you when trying on for the first time.

    I really couldn’t live with out my snuggy hoods having two show horses! They are an absolute life saver all year round but really come into their own in the winter! They save me so much time that I actually get chance to ride through winter! Thank you snuggy hoods!

  2. Jane Barnett 17.04.17

    Excellent product and excellent service, ordered late on thurs afternoon and arrived early the following morning, very happy.

    I LOVE this product. Saved me so much time grooming, horse doesn’t mind wearing it, it’s great quality, fits well, has proven to be waterproof to even heavy rain… what more can I say. You will not regret buying one (wish I had years ago!). Glad I got one with ears as it means I don’t have to battle the mud off his ears. I was worried the ears would be too small for his huge ears, but it fits perfectly. The size guide on their website seems accurate too.

    Not another hood on the market which could even compare!! #SnuggyHoods all the way. The quality, sizing, customer service is second to none. They make a hood “made to measure” for my boy as he is such an awkward size and they fit like a glove and staff are always happy to help.

    The only hood on the market which I would trust to leave on my horse. The fit is perfect, it stays in place well and I could not live without it now! No more scraping mud off for hours on end, it has saved me so much time and now I can actually make the most of riding throughout the winter! My boy has always been prone to the rugs rubbing his mane out in the winter, I use this instead of the neck cover on my rug and for the past 3 years (when wearing the hood) he has had a full mane all year round 🙂

    I would 100 recommend this Turnout hood I have had the same 3 for a few years now which i interchange. My horse lives in her turnout hood from Autumn until the Summer. She uses it as a waterproof neck during the spring Autumn and has it as an under hood for warmth in Winter. Fully waterproof and breathable.
