Sweet itch protection - The Snuggy Hoods Sweet Itch Hood offers protection from midges, flies and sunshine (along with mud, dust and dirt!).

It comes complete with built in ears and fly fly-fringe and is lined with a no-seam silky "shoulder and mane saver©" to prevent these areas from being rubbed or chaffed.

An adjustable nose band and elastic poll adjusters have been added for better fit and security.

There is also an option to have the Fly Fringe 'detachable' with Velcro so the hood can be transformed into a Turn Out Hood with ears for winter use. You can add the Detachable Fly Fringe by selecting this as a separate item from our Summer Hoods page.

This Hood is made of a robust, breathable, water repellent, heavy showerproof, lightweight stretch fabric it's fully machine-washable and designed to be worn 24/7, rain or shine.

Team with the Snuggy Sweet Itch Rug and your horse or pony will have complete nose to tail protection from midges and other flying insects.

Add on a Sheath Cover, Udder Cover or Front Legs for extra coverage and protection.

Sweet Itch is caused by an allergic reaction to the bites of the Culicoides midge and, to a lesser extent, Simulium Equinum. At present there is no cure for Sweet Itch. Once an animal develops the allergy it is generally affected every spring, summer and autumn. There are two approaches to improving the comfort of an affected animal: to minimize the allergic reaction with corticosteroids, anti-histamines or soothing lotions or to minimise midge attack using our sweet itch "body"©. The latter offers the most effective protection and avoids the need to use chemicals, repellents, oils or greases.

As with all our products Snuggy Hoods offer a full after sales service that is second to none. Alterations, repairs and general advice are offered for the life of the product ensuring it is NOT a one season wonder.

Notes:

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.
