NEW for 2016 - XL Tail Flap! Wider and longer tail flap for additional coverage and protection.

Fly protection for horses - The Snuggy Hoods Sweet Itch Rug offers protection from midges, flies and sunshine (along with mud, dust and dirt!). It comes complete with complete belly coverage, elasticated chest and wither, double tail protection in the form of a tail wrap and flap and non-stretch tape along the length.

This Rug is made of breathable, water repellent, heavy shower proof, lightweight stretch fabric which is fully machine-washable and designed to be worn 24/7, rain or shine.

Team with the Snuggy Sweet Itch Hood and your horse or pony will have complete nose to tail protection.

Front legs, Udder cover and Sheath cover are all available as 'add-ons' for extra coverage or for the more severe sufferer.

The Sweet Itch Rug prevents coat bleaching and being mud proof and water repellent the Sweet Itch Rug is also fabulous as an under rug for autumn/winter use, to keep your horse clean and add that extra layer for warmth.

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.

Size guideDelivery optionsReturns policy

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.

Our weatherproof rugs have a medium amount of stretch so order your horse's\pony's usually rug size or the closest size to their actual measurement. This applies to Spik & Span Rug, Sweet Itch Rug, and Bug Body.

Fleece Jams Rugs have a minimum stretch so order your horse's/pony's actual rug size or measurement.

Petticoat Rugs have no stretch in the fabric so choose bigger rather than smaller.

If in doubt please contact us for advice. All Rugs come complete with fitting instructions to help you when trying on for the first time.
