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.


Size Guide – Horse rugs

We recommend you order the rug size your horse usually wears. If in doubt you can measure your horse’s/pony’s rug size using a tape measure.

Measure from centre of the chest around the body to the back of the hind leg, to one side of the tail. See image below:-

Different fabrics have a different amount of stretch and therefore may fit differently. Please read the following advice when choosing a rug size or if you are unsure.

Shiny Show Lycra Rugs are very stretchy so choose smaller rather than bigger.
